According to Jean Hegedus, Global Director of INVISTA’s Denim Business, “As the denim industry continues to seek more sustainable solutions, we looked at how we could improve LYCRA® T400® technology, while maintaining the fiber’s desirable performance characteristics,” Hegedus said. “We believe we’ve achieved that with new LYCRA® T400® EcoMade technology, and we’re excited for our customers to try it.”
More than 65% of the new LYCRA® T400® fiber content comes from sustainable sources. Approximately 50% of the fiber is made from recycled materials such as PET (recycled water bottles), while another part is made from renewable sources such as plant based material. As a result, fabric mills, brands and retailers can get the same lasting performance they’ve come to expect from standard LYCRA® T400® fiber, now with enhanced sustainability.
