Burberry has launched a new capsule collection made with Econyl, a sustainable nylon yarn made from regenerated fishing nets, fabric scraps and industrial plastic. The capsule, which includes a reinvention of Burberry's lightweight car coat, is one of the 50 disruptions Burberry is making throughout its supply chain to create a more circular fashion industry.

"Exploring and using innovative materials that foster circularity is central to creating a more sustainable fashion industry. We are proud to use the Econyl yarn in this collection because it shows how we can actively tackle a problem like plastic waste and create beautiful, luxury products at the same time. This collection is just one of the ways Burberry is actively disrupting and improving every stage of how we create our products because we know our industry can play a key role in building a more sustainable future through science and innovation," said Pam Batty, VP corporate responsibility at Burberry at a press release by the company.   

"We are delighted to collaborate with Burberry for this capsule collection. We believe innovative fibres like Econyl regenerated nylon are the future and are proud to support brands who use our yarns, transforming waste into incredible designs and raising the profile and possibilities of a more circular fashion system," said Giulio Bonazzi, CEO at Aquafil.  

Burberry’s heritage is anchored in material innovation, from the invention of gabardine – a breathable, weatherproof and hardwearing fabric – by Thomas Burberry in 1879 – to the more recent work with company 37.5 to use volcanic sand and waste coconut shell in thermoregulation technology for quilted jackets. Burberry has also introduced Refibra, a new yarn produced by upcycling cotton leftovers from the Burberry Mill in Yorkshire, to make its dust bags for all jewellery, shows and leather goods. (PC)
