Singtex Industrial, a leading textile company in Taiwan, launched SPIIN in Shanghai to integrate industrial resources by leveraging partners on the textile supply chain.

SPIIN will be the platform for partners to explore creativity and business opportunity of utilizing the coffee yarn, S.Café, into the textile manufacturing. As of now, more than 50 partners from Taiwan, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea and U.S.A. already joined SPIIN alliance.

SPIIN will vertically integrate the key players in the textile industry from fabric developers to designers for developing sustainable and eco-friendly products with the green textile manufacturing technology, S.Café yarn.

The core ideas of SPIIN are innovation, inspiration and nature. To maximize the resources utilization on the textile supply chain, SPIIN will be a platform where partners can explore business opportunities, build new business model and share business and technology information.

One of the biggest yarn-dye companies, Huafu Top Dyed Melange Yarn Co., Ltd., already joined SPIIN with the achievement largely decreasing the waste water discharge in China. In addition, Singtex has already built the partnership with Repreve to produce recycled fiber with S.Café yarn to further demonstrate creativity and uniqueness.

S.Café is a technical composite fiber used to make yarn and then becomes knitted or woven fabric through a series of manufacturing processes. S.Café utilizes the natural ability of coffee grounds to adsorb odors for a comfortable wearing experience and providing UV protection and fast drying.

S.Café has won Best Invention at Geneva Inventions and Pittsburgh Invention Gold Medal Award of Merit. Additionally, S.Café obtained GRS (Global Recycle Standard) certification by Control Union (Holland base notarization unit) and Recycled Material Certification by TÜV (Germany base notarization unit).
