Saya, a new name in recycled fibre, made its live debut at Taipei Innovative Textile Application Show (TITAS).  The show showcased sustainable textiles which reduce resource usage and optimise manufacturing efficiency through eco-friendly materials and processes. Saya’s Rscuw, fibres made of recycled cutting scrap & overstock yardage, was featured at TITAS.

The brand’s film (Saya Rscuw launch video), depicted the motivation behind finding new sources of materials to be recycled and the process developed by Saya engineers.

“We have the experience, knowledge and equipment to make change,” said SY Huang, senior vice president of Nan Ya Plastics, Saya’s parent company, and the world’s largest manufacturer of recycled PET repurposing over 75 billion bottles every year. “Under the new brand, Saya, we’ve been able to put our resources toward solving one of the most critical sustainability issues in the textile industry – recycling discarded fabric scrap and unused yardage. We want to take responsibility and redefine what’s possible in renewal.”

Saya Rscuw is recycled polyester fibre from cutting scrap that is bleached and dyeable to whatever vibrant colour the brand chooses. It is available in ultrafine microfibre filaments and can be enhanced with performance applications such as stretch, colour protection, quick-dry, or anti-bacterial.

At this time Saya Rscuw is limited to 100 per cent polyester fabric cutting scraps without coating nor finishes. Continued research is increasing the percentage of overstock waste and types of coatings and finishings for a more inclusive solution.

Saya also offers Rscuw Raw, which is mechanically recycled cutting scrap and yardage without the chemical treatment. The resulting fibre retains a tint of original yardage colour which shows up in knit or woven fabric as a unique heathered effect in shades from grey to copper. Without the bleaching and redyeing, the process to manufacture Rscuw Raw is more energy efficient and the carbon footprint is further reduced.

Saya Rscuw and Rscuw Raw are available now for fabric production, and consumer brands are encouraged to specify their unique requirements in denier, performance treatments and colour.

Saya strives to bring new life to what was once discarded by manufacturing sustainable performance fibres from recycled resources. With the goal of lessening its detrimental impact on nature, Saya makes strides to expand its partners and improve its world. Constantly innovating, Saya seeks to redefine what’s possible in textile renewal. Saya is able to push the boundaries of innovation, thanks to its parent company Nan Ya Plastics, a branch of the Formosa Plastics Group and a global leader in performance fibres. Nan Ya is dedicated to continuous innovation to stay ahead of fast-moving market trends and raise the bar of the entire industry.
