Hyosung highlights creora eco-collection of fibres

As part of their growing collection of eco friendly fibres, Hyosung are highlighting the creora eco collection including creora H-550 and MIPAN regen recycled nylon and polyester, for the swim and intimate markets.

Hyosung, the second largest spandex producer in the world, has care for the environment embedded in their corporate philosophy and is focused on offering fibres for textiles that have reduced environmental impact.

creora H-550 is the new low settable spandex for saving energy in knitting. H-550 gives fabrics soft touch, reduces yellowing, delivers whiter whites and results in less fabric curling with improved molding and chlorine resistance. An additional fabric manufacturer benefit is the ability to re-dye and over-dye without losing power.

creora eco/H-550, with its reduced energy usage, is perfect to blend with other eco-friendly fibres: organic cotton, Modal, Promodal, Tencel, and other cellulosics, plus cotton, wool, silk, rayon, & acrylic. Mills like Fountainset and Pacific, are using H-550 to offer fabrics with Modal or Tencel for molding bras. European mill partners include Berlaine, Louis Vidon, Sofileta, Nil Orme, Yesim & Dukuboy. Other mills include New Wide, Hongik, Sewang, Taijin, Yarn Interactive. With a continuing trend for super light weight fabrics, H-550 elastane is ideal for use in 40gg, 50gg, and 60gg fabrics to minimise curling while maintaining the aesthetics and maximizing the design potential of the ultra soft, lightweight fabrics. Mill partners include Louis Vidon, Pacific, Best Pacific, Tex-tile, Fiori, and PT Namyeung.

For performance in swimwear and in activewear, creora H-550 is also the ideal product to blend with polypropylene to create quick drying, super lightweight performance fabrics, or in 2 sided/double faced constructions with polyester for a push-pull moisture management effect. Fabric King in Taiwan and Sae Chang from Korea are interested in these performance fabrics. Hyosung's MIPAN regen recycled nylon, a further example of the company's dedication to environmental stewardship, uses post consumer waste from fishing nets to produce high quality nylon with the same colour quality, consistency and uniformity as virgin nylon. regen nylon and polyester are the first synthetic yarns certified independently by the Global Certification Standard. They both reduce energy consumption, reduce waste to landfill, and conserve petroleum resources.

For the latest swim fashion combined with eco chic, Hyosung will feature the Eco-Panda swimwear collection. It is the first eco-swimwear line to appear in the swimwear market. Eco-Panda swimwear is comprised of MIPAN regen recycled nylon and chlorine resistant creora. The collection was launched in July and is available to consumers via: www.eco-panda.com

“We are very excited by the new Eco-Panda line which is the first earth-friendly and fashion forward swimwear using post consumer MIPAN regen recycled nylon & creora elastane” says Ria Stern, global marketing director Hyosung. “We believe this new swimwear collection will resonate with consumers as they will respond to the styling as well as the concept that some of the recycled nylon comes from fishing nets used in the ocean and will be regenerated into swimwear for the ocean”
