Aquafil USA Awarded Green Good Design Award for Econyl Pure
Cartersville, GA, May 9, 2018-The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies and The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design awarded Aquafil USA a 2018 Green Good Design award for Econyl Pure, the only fiber in the world made of 100% regenerated nylon that is available for piece dye.
Discarded fishing nets and other ghost gear rescued from our ocean floor along with carpet fluff from spent carpets and other nylon waste is transformed into nylon 6 bulk continuous filament yarn that is so pure that it is white and ready to be piece dyed into any color imaginable. While traditional industry recycling processes can result in material degradation, Aquafil’s ECONYL Regeneration System returns the nylon waste back to its virgin state without any degradation or loss of quality. Best of all, it can be regenerated infinitely.
