(L to R) Jeans containing LYCRA® T400® EcoMade fiber from Prosperity, Soorty and Arvind. LYCRA® T400® fiber is made in part from recycled PET. Also shown with the jeans are the flakes, chips and fiber
The original LYCRA® T400® fibre is the building block for a number of the brand’s popular stretch denim concepts including LYCRA® dualFX®, LYCRA® XFIT, and LYCRA® TOUGH MAX™ technologies. LYCRA® T400® EcoMade fibre offers the same benefits of lasting comfort, fit and performance as the original, but with the value-added offer of sustainability.
“We’re excited to introduce LYCRA® T400® EcoMade technology to show visitors,” said Jean Hegedus, INVISTA Global Denim Director. “It can be paired with sustainable rigid fibre offerings such as BCI cotton, TENCEL™ lyocell, or others, so brands and retailers can amplify their eco-friendly message to consumers.”
Visitors to Kingpins are invited to attend a free seminar presented by Ms. Hegedus on Wednesday, April 18 at 1:30 pm. “High Stretch, Low Stretch, Bi-Stretch, Go stretch” offers a framework for evaluating different LYCRA® fibre innovations for denim. It will help brands and retailers select the best stretch fabrics for the types of jeans they’re designing.
