What is Econyl?
Econyl is a recycled nylon fiber made from fishing nets and waste collected from the seas and oceans.
After treatment, these are transformed into fiber and then into an ideal fabric for the manufacture of many sportswear or swimsuits.
At LUZ COLLECTIONS, the materials are used to make a multitude of products, such as water suits, cycling suits, swimsuits, leggings, brassières, t-shirts, shorts or even hoodies (K-Way).
Econyl emits 80% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than conventional nylon, which is a significant reduction in emissions since nylon represents 9% of the synthetic fibers used in the world.
To make econyl, the raw material is collected in the oceans, whereas it would have taken between 400 to 1,000 years for decomposition in the marine environment.
The production of econyl fabric makes it possible to clean the oceans of these millions of abandoned fishing nets, which threaten marine fauna and flora.
The many advantages of Econyl:
OUR GREEN COMMITMENT
Our goal is to develop sustainable and eco-responsible fashion, which is why we are committed to selecting recycled or organic materials.
Abandoned fishing nets account for 70% of plastic waste at sea, posing a huge danger to marine biodiversity.
Econyl, uses this resource to make a super fabric ideal for making a multitude of products (jerseys, brassières, leggings, nautical suits, cyclists or bodysuits)."
