SEOUL, South Korea — January 30, 2021 — As we begin to dream of and conceive a post COVID-19 world, we realize that several trends developed during the pandemic will continue — namely clothing that provides comfort and reassurance, and that’s made with sustainable sources. Additionally, this clothing needs to be multi-functional in that it can cross the boundaries between home wear, activewear and outdoor wear. And, it must last overtime.
As a solutions provider across the value chain from mill to brand to consumer, Hyosung consistently forecasts market trends to develop a comprehensive fiber offering to help its customers envision products that suit these trends. The company will present many its new sustainable and multi-function regen fibers at ISPO Munich Online February 1-5, 2021.
“We are experiencing significant interested in our 100-percent GRS recycled creora® spandex, Mipan regen nylon, and regen polyester — all of which save valuable resources from being removed from the earth,” said Mike Simko, global marketing director Hyosung -Textiles. “Having such a comprehensive package of recycled, multi-function fibers is quite unique and we’re excited to offer our partners the best possible range of sustainable product offerings.”
In addition to its 100-percent recycled regen creora spandex, Mipan regen nylon, regen polyester, Hyosung will present its recycled regen multi-function offering to include:
