The market for bio-based yarns is pretty limited, but there is a growing interest in yarns with natural origins. In line with growing consumer demand for eco-sustainable clothing a large number of brands from different price ranges use bio-based yarn in their collections, said a top official from Fulgar SPA, an international leader in manmade fibre market.

“The growth rate for our bio-based Evo yarn is very high, over 30 per cent a year. It is still a new product. In general, the favourable market response to our Evo organic yarn is a source of great satisfaction for us and it rewards our commitment and investment,” Alan Garosi, marketing manager, Fulgar SPA told Fibre2Fashion.

Over the last three years, Fulgar has launched an all-round sustainability programme, investing in research and development (R&D) and developing products made from recycled raw or natural materials. Fulgar's products and manufacturing methods have gained sustainability certification in a number of areas, including life cycle assessment (LCA), assessment of the environmental impact caused by the entire production process, and Q-Nova's inclusion in the Higg Index that measures the environmental impact of a garment's entire lifecycle.

When asked about the demand for bio-based versus polyamide 6,6 yarns at Fulgar, Garosi said, “Unlike traditional polyamides, where demand comes from across the market, as a result of costs and technical performance the demand for bio-based polyamides is focused on premium clothing.”

The company plans on introducing new products that are linked to sustainability, and will present an environmental balance updated to the three-year period of 2015-2017. It will also explore new, potentially interesting markets for our type of products. (KD)
