Regenerated and recycled yarn will be a main attraction of the Yarn Expo Autumn 2019 which will feature a wide array of different yarn and fibre materials. The show, to be held during September 25 – 27, 2019 will showcase sustainably-produced regenerated cellulose fibres, along with plenty of recycled options that close the loop in the fashion industry.

Regenerated yarns and fibres can be found from exhibitors such as Birla, overseas newcomers Else Bornewa (Turkey), Hai Thien Synthetic Fibre (Vietnam) and Henbang Textile Vietnam (Vietnam), as well as domestic exhibitors.

“Creating an environmentally-friendly product begins with fibre, and brands are increasingly recognising this,” commented Manohar Samuel, senior president of Marketing and Business Development at Grasim Industries (of the Aditya Birla Group) in the Birla Cellulose case study at Yarn Expo Spring 2019. The eco-friendly options at September’s fair will offer brands the chance to ensure traceable sustainability throughout their supply chain.

This September, the Birla Satellite Pavilion will return to Yarn Expo Autumn with a diverse range of exhibitors, including Birla Cellulose and their eco-friendly regenerated cellulose fibres. Birla Cellulose are globally recognised for their soft and eco-friendly viscose fibres, including Birla Viscose, Birla Modal, Birla Spunshades, and Birla Excel.

With water pollution being a great concern for the fashion industry’s environmental impact, a solution can be found with Else Bornewa’s extensive colour range of recycled cotton and acrylic yarns. The yarns, which are OEKO-TEX and GRS certified, are produced from fabric waste collected from their garment manufacturing operations. The waste is separated by colour or mixture before being recycled into fibres, resulting in a product range of 63 colours that do not require extra dyeing, ultimately saving water and minimising pollution.

For recycled polyester, visitors can meet a new exhibitor from Vietnam, Hai Thien Synthetic Fibre. They will bring 100 per cent recycled polyester staple fibres, and have two production lines, ensuring fast production. They offer dope-dyed yarns, a method that generates less water waste, and can handle custom orders.

Another new exhibitor from Vietnam, Henbang Textile Vietnam, will bring recycled cotton yarn to the show. Their cotton is suitable for a huge array of end-use products, including apparel, ropes, blankets, and pet supplies. They export all over the world and are committed to maintaining high standards in quality and customer service.

With tighter environmental regulations from the government, particularly on water pollution, China’s textile industry continues to offer more sustainably-produced textile products. Yarn Expo’s domestic exhibitors will meet rising demand for sustainability in China and overseas. Recycled yarns offer a new life to textile waste, while effective yet eco-friendly dying methods are employed.

Domestic exhibitor highlights include recycled cotton and polyester blended yarn by Cangnan Hago Textile, high-quality cotton, knitting, polyester/cotton blends, and twisted yarns in various colours from Cangnan WeiXiang Spinning Factory, recycled cotton yarn and fancy yarn from Wenzhou Walker Imp & Exp, and environmentally-friendly dope-dyed fibres, offering high colour fastness and bright colour that lasts from Hangzhou Benma Chemfibre & Spinning.
