Thread maker American & Efird (A&E), a portfolio company of Elevate Textiles, has announced the release of ECO100, a new line of 100% recycled, industrial sewing threads. The launch of this product line is driven by the company’s commitment to sustainability and a surge of sustainable product pledges and commitments by prominent brands and retailers around the world.

Known in the industry as the clear choice for sustainable, ethically-made, sewing threads, A&E’s ECO100 product line that includes Perma Core ECO100, Anefil Poly ECO100, and Wildcat ECO100 is the latest example of the company supporting its customers through sustainable innovation.

Consumers expect more environmentally friendly products. Brands are responding by pledging to reduce their overall environmental impact and committing to make their products more sustainable, the company reports. “We support our customers’ sustainability goals and challenge the industry to Expect More from their thread partners,” said Chris Alt, A&E President. “Our customers continue to look for ways to make their sewn products more sustainable. A&E’s new ECO100 sewing threads will help them do just that.”

Availability of the 100% recycled ECO100 thread line further bolsters the selection of sustainable sewing threads A&E offers in its Eco-Driven Thread Collection, which includes its popular Repreve and organic thread products. “We work hard to provide the very best sustainable and ethically manufactured, industrial sewing threads,” added Mr Alt. “A&E is committed to providing eco-friendly sewing threads to our customers wherever they are in the world.”
