ECONYL® Regenerated Nylon

Made from nylon scraps such as fishing nets, used carpets and industrial plastic.

ECONYL® regenerated nylon - giving waste a new life

ECONYL® thread is a 100% regenerated nylon fiber produced using nylon waste that would otherwise pollute the Earth , such as fishing nets, carpets and industrial plastics.
ECONYL® regenerated nylon has the same characteristics as that from standard sources, without any difference in quality or performance, but can be recycled infinitely, without ever losing any of its qualities.

The winning formula of ECONYL® regenerated nylon lies in the possibility of creating new products without using new resources .

Let's reduce our impact on the planet

In addition to being an excellent solution for valorising waste, using regenerated nylon means being sensitive to the problem of climate change. ECONYL® reduces its impact on global warming potential by 90% compared to common petroleum-based nylon .

For every 10,000 tons of raw material needed to produce ECONYL® yarn, 70,000 barrels of crude oil and 65,100 tons of CO2 eq emissions can be saved.

Nothing is created, nothing is destroyed, but everything is transformed

The ECONYL® regeneration process begins with the recovery of waste from all over the world. Once cleaned, work begins to recover as much nylon as possible. Through an innovative purification process, waste is regenerated until it returns to its initial quality. ECONYL® regenerated nylon is spun again to produce our apparel.

This yarn allows us to create an eco-sustainable fabric made in Italy with countless technical characteristics.

ECONYL® has various textile certifications including ISO and EPD for verifying the materials used for production and the state of the factories. While for the chemical substances used in the production processes, Aquafil, the Italian company producing the yarn, is Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified and complies with the REACH Regulation (drawn up in collaboration between Greenpeace and the European Community).

ECONYL® Nylon Infinite possibilities of use

We use ECONYL® regenerated thread for both our swimwear collection and sportswear. Our line of swimsuits is characterized by a perfect fit and breathability, it also guarantees protection from UVA rays of +50 , resistance to sun creams and oils , excellent coverage and ultra resistance to chlorine.

In our line of sportswear we enhance its incredible softness, the quality of being a muscle-containing fabric, slowing down the formation of lactic acid and promoting the recovery of physical form and resistance to pilling. Our desire to create new products is infinite. The planet's resources are not. But that's okay, because we can have both: new products and a better environment.

We control our impact

We choose the best, for the body and for the environment

The ECONYL® circular regeneration process transforms waste into a new source of opportunities . Fishing nets abandoned in the sea are recovered and transformed into new thread. A fiber that can be infinitely regenerated, recreated and reshaped, reducing its impact on global warming potential by 80% compared to common petroleum-based nylon.
