Filidea Technical Yarns: New products and markets under the banner of sustainable evolution

  • New yarns for the contract furnishing world, for industrial sewing threads and the challenge of biodegradable polyester

At the product level, big impulse has been given to the range of industrial sewing threads for various uses, with new references both in the polyester + polyester compositions as well as in cotton + polyester. The industrial threads, marketed as raw material, allow the company to consolidate its position on some strategic markets, such as in Germany.

As a result of the partnership with Trevira® for the spinning of the flame-retardant Trevira®CS fibre, Filidea Technical Yarns reinforces its offer of non-dyed performant yarns aimed at the world of contract furnishings. The sector of hospitality, of furnishings for public and work spaces, fairs and areas for social-cultural gatherings will find a comprehensive answer to its demands in the Trevira®CS-based yarns: with regard to fireproof standards, versatility, resistance to wear and tear, excellent colour rendering, and last but not least, the component of fibre sustainability, an essential value for the design of spaces for collective use.

Continuing in the development of sustainable production across the sector, the company has undertaken two important initiatives with other actors in the textile supply chain. Filidea participates in Trick, the European blockchain project – part of the European Horizon 2020 programme – involving 29 partners from six different nations to reinforce the circular economy thanks to the development of a digital platform which is complete, traceable and available to operators in the textile sector.

MagnoLab, the network of enterprises in the textile supply chain, and of which Filidea is one of the founding members, gives the impulse to constant R&D activities. MagnoLab was established in 2022 in order to develop tangible solutions for the sector, to create values and to collaborate with regard to current and future demands.

MagnoLab brings together textile companies which are active at various stages of and with complementary roles in the supply chain, and which work in synergy and share objectives, resourcefulness and long-sightedness, with the aim of developing innovation in a structured way. MagnoLab is also open to welcome new partners.

RadiciGroup's sustainable Repetable yarn at Emirates FA Cup final

RadiciGroup's sustainable Repetable yarn took to the field alongside Liverpool and Chelsea during the Emirates FA Cup final, which took place on 14 May at Wembley Stadium.
 
Over 47,000 plastic bottles were collected from previous events at Wembley stadium and transformed into Repetable, the innovative RadiciGroup yarn made from PET flakes, which was then used to make the red banner 105 meters long and 68 meters wide, unveiled during the opening ceremony of the event and decorated with the logos of the two teams.
 
Compared to virgin polyester, Repetable® allows lower CO2 emissions (-45%), lower water consumption (-90%) and lower energy consumption (-60%), guaranteeing high performance.

The red banner will be recycled again to make backpacks and sports bibs that the FA will donate to the local community to inspire the eco-players of the future: an initiative in the name of circularity!

Integration of these technologies into global supply chains is key without compromising quality, thus extending the life cycle of these materials.

Circular Systems has three waste-to-fibre platforms that offer an efficient management of textile and agricultural waste:

  • The Agraloop™ refines natural fibers derived from agricultural crops into textile-grade fiber called Agraloop™ BioFibre™.  A NEW Natural Fiber mindfully sourced for circularity. With our specialized processing technique, cellulose fiber from stems and leaves are purified into soft fiber bundles ready to spin into yarns. The Agraloop™ processes leftovers from various food and medicine crops including, oilseed hemp/flax, CBD hemp, banana, and pineapple.
  • Texloop™ Recycling produces high-quality GRS (Global Recycled Standard) certified recycled cotton fibre called RCOT™. Texloop™ preserves fiber quality for the next generation of recycled materials and blends with GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified organic cotton and Canopy approved man-made cellulosics to create near virgin quality yarns for knitting and weaving.
  • Orbital™ hybrid yarns create high-quality materials with high-performance, using organic and recycled fiber inputs. Orbital's patent-pending technology produces inherent wicking and fast dry performance materials, even with 50%-70% natural fiber composition, eliminating the need for chemical finishes to create high-performance fabrics.

All Circular Systems yarns are GRS, OCS and/or GOTS certified and are in the process of developing  their own Crop Residue Standard with Textile Exchange that would relate to the Agraloop™ platform technology.

Radici Yarn certified to ISO 50001 Energy Management Systems

Over 400 employees work hard every day to improve the environmental performance of Radici Yarn’s site. Through teamwork and continuous improvement in energy efficiency, Radici Yarn has obtained ISO 50001 Energy Management Systems certification, which attests to the organization’s commitment to contain and progressively reduce energy consumption.

Radici Yarn, one of the companies in the RadiciGroup Advanced Textile Solutions Business Area, is engaged in the production and sale of polyamide 6 polymer, PA6 and PA66 continuous filament and staple yarn, and other synthetic fibres, including products made of recycled or bio-based materials.

All the processes - polymerization and spinning (Villa d'Ogna plant), as well as warping and draw-warping (Ardesio plant) - are run under constant monitoring with the goal of achieving maximum energy efficiency and lower consumption. Both sites are powered by two hydroelectric power plants owned by Geogreen, a RadiciGroup partner and energy supplier. The share of energy consumption from renewable sources and reduced environmental impact (natural gas) sources  is constantly increasing.

The share of energy consumption from renewable sources and reduced environmental impact (natural gas) sources  is constantly increasing.

The energy issue has always been a priority for Radici Yarn, whose products serve numerous sectors, including automotive, clothing and furnishings.

"Already at the beginning of the 1990s, Radici Yarn started investing in cogeneration, the simultaneous production of electricity and steam,” pointed out Laura Ravasio, energy manager of Radici Yarn SpA. “We have recently started up an advanced trigeneration plant – a highly efficient system that produces not only electricity and steam, but also chilled water for our production processes. One of the first results recorded in 2021 was a 30% reduction in water consumption. Thus, ISO 50001 certification seemed like the next logical step to take in formalizing a long-term approach to energy.”

The ISO 50001 certification, which is voluntary and valid for a period of three years, was added to the ISO 14001 Environmental and ISO 9001 Quality Management system certifications previously achieved by Radici Yarn.

adidas: Journey to Circularity with FW 2021 Collection

2050 is the year when adidas plans to achieve climate neutrality. It’s also the year when it’s expected that our oceans will contain more plastic than fish, that is, if we don’t act now. Adidas' solution to help end plastic waste and achieve climate neutrality? Sustainable innovation.

Last year adidas announced the Three Loop Strategy – their roadmap to help end plastic waste. At the heart of this is Circular Loop – Made To Be Remade.

The concept behind Made To Be Remade (MTBR) is simple: when one piece of plastic has fulfilled its purpose, it must be remade to fulfil another. Their attitude is that the end of one thing equates to the beginning of the next, and that their products’ lives can be extended by remaking them into new products.

Adidas' Circular Loop creation process has come a long way since they introduced FUTURECRAFT.LOOP – their first running shoe made to be remade – in 2019. From what started as a beta program of just 200 pairs has developed into a concept within the business that spans across multiple categories and in April this year saw the first commercial launch – Ultraboost Made To Be Remade.

Ultraboost Made To Be Remade will see the next generation released in November this year (2021). The shoe will be created in part from the previous generation. Featuring a torsion bar that contains 25% reused content from the Futurecraft Loop Gen 2.

W21 will see another adidas icon join the MTBR family - Stan Smith Made To Be Remade. Just like the Ultraboost model, Stan Smith MTBR has been created entirely from TPU – from laces to midsole and everything in between.

Adidas’s best-loved Outdoor products are also receiving the MTBR treatment. Alongside Stan Smith MTBR, October will welcome the TERREX Free Hiker Made To Be Remade, featuring a TPU knitted upper and TPU outsole, making it the first TERREX hiking shoe to use the technology. The shoe will be accompanied by the launch of the TERREX Made To Be Remade Anorak – their second-generation prototype following on from the FW20 FUTURECRAFT.LOOP Anorak, which will be commercially available in 2022.

Garn aus Hundefell: nachhaltig und ethisch vertretbar

Die Textil- und Modebranche muss nachhaltiger werden. Das junge Brand modus intarsia zeigt seinen Weg: Aus der Unterwolle von Hunden, die normalerweise ausgekämmt wird und im Müll landet, haben die zwei Gründerinnen ein hochwertiges Garn entwickelt. Die Modedesignerin Ann Cathrin Schönrock hatte die Idee, und die Textilingenieurin Franziska Uhl von der Hochschule Reutlingen hat gemeinsam mit Wissenschaftler:innen an den Deutschen Instituten für Textil- und Faserforschung Denkendorf (DITF) das entwickelte Garn an Industriemaschinen erprobt und in größerem Maßstab hergestellt.

Chiengora® nennen sie das Kaschmir-ähnliche Garn – „Chien“, Französisch für „Hund“, und „gora“ in Anlehnung an das ursprünglich von Hasen stammende feine Angora. Das Garn hat den Vorteil, dass der Rohstoff nicht eingeflogen werden muss und die Tiere nicht für die Wollproduktion gezüchtet und gehalten werden. Der Rohstoff für das Garn entsteht nebenbei bei der täglichen Tierpflege, vor allem, wenn die Tiere im Frühjahr ihr Winterfell verlieren. Damit schont die Nutzung von Chiengora® Ressourcen und dient dem Tierwohl.

Das Gründerinnen-Team besteht aus Ann Cathrin Schönrock (31) aus Berlin und Franziska Uhl (25) aus Reutlingen. Als gelernte Mode- und Strickdesignerin mit hohen Ansprüchen an Qualität, Ethik und Nachhaltigkeit hat Ann Cathrin Schönrock schon 2017 mit dem Sammeln der Unterwolle vom eigenen Hund, von Hunden von Bekannten und Freunden, aber auch von Hundefriseuren und Züchtern begonnen. Nach ersten Machbarkeitsstudien stieß Franziska Uhl von der Fakultät für Textil & Design an der Hochschule Reutlingen dazu. Sie hat im Rahmen ihrer Bachelorarbeit erforscht, welche Hundehaare sich besonders gut für die Garnentwicklung eignen. An den DITF hat sie mit Volkan Ünal und Waltraud Abele ihre Thesen an Maschinen im Industriemaßstab überprüft und die Produktionsprozesse optimiert – von den Wollfaserflocken bis zum fertigen Wollgarn.

Das Potenzial ist groß. Allein in Deutschland leben über 10,4 Millionen Hunde. Obwohl nicht alle Hunderassen geeignete Unterwolle haben, landen europaweit bisher jedes Jahr über 1000 Tonnen davon im Müll. Schönrock und Uhl haben ein dezentrales Sammlernetzwerk ins Leben gerufen. Jeder kann daran teilnehmen, die Unterwolle seines Vierbeiners sammeln und nach Reutlingen schicken. Unterstützt wird das Projekt mit dem staatlichen EXIST-Gründungsstipendium und einem Investment aus der Textilindustrie. Die Unternehmerin Anna Yona von Wildling investiert in „Yarnsustain“.

Iluna Group with sustainable Collection at Interfilière Paris

As the role of lingerie in fashion and athleisure continues to augment, the desire for garments that will meet a new set of values for contemporary consumer lifestyles will flourish. Iluna Group comes back to Interfilière Paris with an important goal: to relaunch the qualities and dimensions of sustainability.

Iluna’s new path begins with the investment in the renewal of machines, which allow it to fly higher in terms of high-tech developments, quality, definition, effects of yarns and patterns. The journey into the new dimension of responsible quality continues with ad hoc developments in the field of GRS (Global Recycled Standard) certified recycled yarns, aimed at unprecedented effects both in look, in performance and in the hands of fabrics. The cord yarn is a precious yarn with a ROICA™ EF premium stretch yarn core, GRS certified and developed with 50% of pre-consumer waste materials content - double, covered with an equally recycled shiny thread; the bright and translucent is instead to add brilliant effects so far not possible with a GRS yarn.

The cord yarn is a precious yarn with a ROICA™ EF premium stretch yarn core, GRS certified and developed with 50% of pre-consumer waste materials content - double, covered with an equally recycled shiny thread; the bright and translucent is instead to add brilliant effects so far not possible with a GRS yarn.

The printing processes are also born from this constant search for innovation towards new materials and new techniques, becoming more and more sustainable: Global Recycle Standard (GRS)-certified sublimation printing and register printing carrying Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certification. This one overlap exactly on the design and color the details, reaching where the dye cannot reach.

Diversification has become essential in today’s competitive market and the fragility of the moments experienced in 2020 was the stimulus to return to being here again, to return to action. Flexibility is the watchword today, along with research. And Iluna has managed to go further: starting from the ingredients at the base of the materials, last year launched a collection with natural dyes made with GOTS certified plant-based dyes, up to proposing magnificent prints with extraordinary effects for this edition of the Milanese fair.

The three dimensions of sustainability, design and innovation are thus finally linked thanks to valuable partnerships with expert and excellent reference companies that have allowed these new developments and these unique results thanks to advanced technologies designed specifically for Iluna, which is today the only company to offer ingredients, natural colors and prints, all three strictly certified.

In 12 Kategorien wurden schließlich insgesamt 24 Preisträger gekürt. Eine Publikumswertung für den Audience Award findet vom 17. Juli bis zum 17. August statt.

EqoBalance PA6-Garne folgen dem Biomassebilanz-Prinzip, das auf der allerersten Stufe der Wertschöpfungskette in der Produktion von Polymeren zur Garnherstellung die Substitution fossiler Ressourcen durch erneuerbare natürliche Rohmaterialien sicherstellt. Die nachhaltigen Garne entsprechen dem TÜV SÜD Standard CMS 71 zur Zertifizierung des Einsatzes erneuerbarer Rohstoffe. Die Zertifizierung bestätigt die Einsparungen an fossilen Ressourcen. Das Potenzial zur Reduzierung der Treibhausgasemissionen als Folge der Substitution fossiler Stoffe wird im Rahmen einer Lebenszyklusbewertung (Life Cycle Analysis, LCA) errechnet. Demnach ermöglichen EqoBalance-Garne gegenüber Beaulieu-Garnprodukten auf fossiler Basis eine um bis zu 75 Prozent reduzierte Kohlendioxidäquivalenz (CO2eq/kg).
Emmanuel Colchen, Global Sales Director, Beaulieu Yarns, kommentiert: „Wir freuen uns sehr, diesen Green Product Award für unsere ® Familie zu erhalten. Diese PA6-Garne erschließen Teppichherstellern eine direkte, in Qualität und Leistung gleichwertige Alternative zu fossil basierten Produkten. Mit EqoBalance können sie zum reduzierten Einsatz fossiler Rohstoffe, zur Reduzierung der Treibhausgasemissionen und so zu einer nachhaltigeren Zukunft beitragen.“

Beaulieu Yarns bietet ein breites Portfolio an PA6-Garnen zur Fertigung von Teppichfliesen, -dielen und -böden für den Einsatz in geschäftlichen Büroräumen, Gastgewerbe-, Bildungs- und Gesundheitspflege-Einrichtungen, Kraftfahrzeugen und Wohnbereichen.

Der Green Product Award ist ein jährlicher internationaler Wettbewerb für innovative, nachhaltige Produkte und Dienstleistungen in den Kategorien Architektur, Arbeitswelt, Energie, Elektronik, Mode, Forschung, Freestyle, Kinder, Kommunikation, Konsumgüter, Mobilität, Möbel und Wohnaccessoires. Der Preis richtet sich an etablierte Firmen und Start-ups.

Ziel des Preises ist, eine Sammlung „grüner“ Lösungen für Verbraucher und Einkäufer zu erstellen, die bestehende Produkte nachhaltig substituieren. Seit 2013 hat der Wettbewerb Einreichungen aus über 40 Ländern erhalten. Seitdem wurden die Exponate auf internationalen Fachmessen und Designfestivals mehr als 500.000 Besuchern präsentiert.

Schoeller: Nachhaltigkeit bei Geweben und Technologien

Im Schoeller Sommer 2020 ist alles im Fluss. Die Stoffe bewegen sich fliessend und leicht und der ökologische Kreislauf schliesst sich. Upcycled Produkte mit ECONYL®-Garn und die auf nachwachsenden Rohstoffen basierende PFC-freie ecorepel® Bio-Technologie sind zwei ökologische Highlights der Sommerkollektion 2020, die inmitten der Schweizer Berge entwickelt und produziert wird. Multikolorits mit kontrastreichen Rückseiten und frische, modische Unis, die sich perfekt kombinieren lassen, verleihen den Funktionstextilien spannende Farbeffekte.

Im Schoeller Sommer 2020 ist alles im Fluss. Die Stoffe bewegen sich fliessend und leicht und der ökologische Kreislauf schliesst sich. Upcycled Produkte mit ECONYL®-Garn und die auf nachwachsenden Rohstoffen basierende PFC-freie ecorepel® Bio-Technologie sind zwei ökologische Highlights der Sommerkollektion 2020, die inmitten der Schweizer Berge entwickelt und produziert wird. Multikolorits mit kontrastreichen Rückseiten und frische, modische Unis, die sich perfekt kombinieren lassen, verleihen den Funktionstextilien spannende Farbeffekte.


REGENERATED ECONYL® YARN
Echte Upcycled Produkte sind die von Schoeller hergestellten Textilien mit ECONYL®-Garn, die aus regeneriertem Material gefertigt werden. Das ECONYL®-Reclaiming-Programm von Aquafil S.P.A. reduziert die weltweite Abfallmenge, indem man regenerierbare Wertstoffe von Deponien und aus den Weltmeeren sammelt und in Produktionskreisläufe zurückführt. Das daraus entstehende Garn unterscheidet sich in Qualität und Aussehen in nichts von herkömmlichen Textilien. Die Schoeller Gewebefamilie mit ECONYL®-Garn umfasst ein Gesamtpaket mit diversen spannenden Qualitäten wie ultraleichten, bielastischen schoeller®-dynamic (z. B. für Windbreaker-Blousons), sehr weichen, feinen schoeller®-dryskin (z. B. für Hightech-Shorts) und leichten schoeller®-WB-400.


ECO-CREATED
Neue, supersofte soft-shells mit ECONYL®-Garn sind je nach Anforderungsprofil mit unterschiedlichen Backings und Gewichten erhältlich. Der leichteste schoeller®-WB-400 versprüht Sommergefühle in frischen Farbtönen wie Melone, Sauerstoffblau oder Khaki mit glatter, farblich abgesetzter Jersey-Rückseite, die ebenso aus ECONYL®-Garn gefertigt ist. Eine etwas schwerere Qualität überrascht in klassischem Schwarz mit edler, marinefarbener Rückseite. Die Bordeaux-Nuance der soft-shell mit gebrushter Rückseite in Steingrau fühlt sich kuschelig weich und warm an. Für nachhaltige Wasserabweisung sorgt die fluorcarbonfreie ecorepel® Bio-Technologie, die auf nachwachsenden Rohstoffen basiert.


WHITE MATTER
Im Sommer 2020 dominieren nebst nachhaltigen Geweben und Technologien von natürlichen Materialien inspirierte Multikolorits. Die komfortablen, mehrfarbigen schoeller®-WB-400-Qualitäten ergeben ganz neue Farbeffekte und verbreiten gute Laune – sowohl bei Outdoor-Aktivitäten wie auch bei  urbanen Sportswear-Anwendungen. Die Mischung von Melone, Meeresgrün oder Steingrau mit Weiss verändert die Aussage der Originalfarben und verleiht den Textilien einen unerwartet kalkigen, sommerlichen Look. Ein zusätzlicher Hingucker ist das leichte, weisse Jersey-Backing, das sich erst auf den zweiten Blick zeigt.


AUGMENTED ORIGINALS
Nicht weniger lebendig präsentieren sich die authentischen schoeller®-dynamic-Qualitäten in moosigen Grüntönen, Blaunuancen oder Braunvariationen der Baumrinde. Die Multikolorits lassen sich perfekt mit unifarbenen Geweben kombinieren und überzeugen auch funktionell durch die PFC-freie ecorepel® Bio-Technologie, die zusätzlich für zuverlässige Wasserabweisung sorgt. Die leichten schoeller®-dryskin Hosen- wie auch Jacken-Basisqualitäten erhalten durch den dezenten Glanz und modische Farben einen eleganten Touch. In sanften bläulichen und gräulichen Grüntönen bieten die weich fliessenden Allrounder sehr gute Abriebsbeständigkeit und ein ideales Moisture-Management aufgrund der Mikrofaser auf der Innenseite. Zusätzlich sind auch sie zur Wasserabweisung mit ecorepel® Bio ausgerüstet.
