Unifi Textiles (Suzhou) Co. Ltd (UTSC), subsidiary of Unifi, multi-national company that produces and sells textured and other processed yarns, is showing REPREVE fibre made with recycled materials, at the ongoing the Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics show in Shanghai, China, from October 11 to 13, 2016, in booth E65, 5.2 International Hall, China.

UTSC will display branded technologies recycled with REPREVE, including: SORBTEK moisture management, REFLEXX stretch, SOFTEC high resiliency technology, REPREVE Staple Fibre for use in spun yarns, and COTTON-LIKE with technology that provides a natural look and feel.

In the ever-changing global marketplace, UTSC aims to satisfy the growing demand for comfortable, functional and environmentally friendly apparel by combining performance features with REPREVE. REPREVE is a brand of fibres made certified from recycled materials, including plastic water bottles.

Jay Hertwig, vice president of global brand sales, marketing and product development for Unifi, Inc. said, “Unifi is in a unique position, as one of the world's leading producers of branded performance fibres and recycled fibres, to provide the market with the best of both worlds. With the ability to source globally from Unifi, customers can be confident in quality, innovative products no matter where they choose to do business.”

Ed Wickes, president of UTSC said, “Consumers can appreciate earth-friendly products made to perform, not just in the sense of high-performing products they can count on, but performance made better for the environment. Adding REPREVE to our branded technologies provides all of the functional benefits to consumers with the added advantage of recycled.” (GK)
