made partly from recycled fishing nets salvaged from the oceans
WHAT EXACTLY IS ECONYL®?
ECONYL® is an innovative yarn which consists – amongst other things – of recycled fishing nets which have been recovered from the oceans. ECONYL® gets manufactured by recovering nylon waste and returning it to its virgin state – the result: 100% recycled nylon yarn.
We use ECONYL® in tights and leggings, manufactured in cooperation with KUNERT, a long-established German company.

FACTS ABOUT ECONYL®
The ECONYL® regeneration system consists of six steps which form a closed loop.
ECONYL® is created by collecting waste from the world's oceans, textiles and floor coverings and recycling it in Slovenia.
Every tonne of fishing nets that is collected and processed can produce yarn for more than 15,000 pairs of socks.
ECONYL® can be recycled, recreated and reshaped endlessly.
