Lycra T400 fibre with EcoMade Technology
A new fibre made in part from a combination of recycled and renewable materials. More than 65% of the content comes from sustainable sources.
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 fibre’s desirable performance characteristics. We believe we’ve achieved that with new Lycra T400 EcoMade technology, and we’re excited for our customers to try it.”
Lycra T400 fibre is the building block for a number of Invista’s denim concepts including Lycra dualFX, Lycra Xfit, and Lycra Tough Max technologies.
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 fibre, now with enhanced sustainability.
