Spanish manufacturer Seaqual 4U will unveil its fabrics made from eco-friendly fibre Seaqual at Premiere Vision Paris. Seaqual 4U has developed an encouraging, virtuous chain from fisherman to consumer in which all textile stakeholders (spinners-weavers-brands) are committed to cleaning up marine waste and creating eco-responsible yarn, fibre and fabrics.

Sequal will also present new fibres and yarns manufactured with raw materials from the seabed, at the trade fair that will be held from September 19 to 21, 2017.

"We are the first firm ever to market fibres created using plastic waste dredged from the seabed under the brand name Sequal. The waste is dredged up by its 400 partner fishing boats. For each kilo of fibre produced, a kilo of waste is removed from the ocean. The stakes are colossal: it has been estimated that 8 million tonnes of detritus end up in the sea each year, of which 80 per cent sinks to the seabed. This pollution is well out of control and is indeed worsening. If we don’t change our habits, there will be a tonnes of plastic waste for every three tonnes of fish in our oceans by 2025," said the company press release.

The fibre Seaqual is available as continuous and discontinuous yarn. The range of discontinuous yarn is developed in counts from nm 10 to nm 70. These can be blended with natural fibres such as organic cotton, Tencel, viscose, wool, linen etc. They can also be used alone, in their natural ecru shade, or dyed. The new continuous range is available in 50, 78 and 167 decitex. Spinning technologies have enabled developments with air texturisation, false twist texturing, mechanical twisting and elasticisation. Yarns can be mass-dyed or dyed on the bobbin. Suitable for ready-to-wear, beachwear, sportswear, denim and socks, these yarns can be woven or knitted using circular or seamless machines.

The environmental qualities and the sense of commitment demonstrated in this virtuous, sustainable development chain will be a major theme at Premiere Vision Paris, with various stands displaying new fabrics containing Seaqual. (RR)
