As we begin to dream of and conceive a post COVID-19 world, we realize that several trends that developed during the pandemic will continue – namely clothing that provides comfort and reassurance, and that’s made with sustainable sources, says fibre producer Hyosung. 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, Hyosung says, last over time.

As a solutions provider across the value chain from mill to brand to consumer, Hyosung consistently forecasts market trends to develop a comprehensive fibre offering to help its customers envision products that suit these trends. The company will present many of its new sustainable and multi-function regen fibres at ISPO Munich Online 1-5 February 2021.

“We are experiencing significant interested in our 100% GRS recycled creora elastane, 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 fibres is quite unique and we’re excited to offer our partners the best possible range of sustainable product offerings.”

In addition to its 100% recycled regen creora elastane, Mipan regen nylon, regen polyester, Hyosung will present its recycled regen multi-function offering to include:

 -regen askin/ MIPAN regen aqua X: cool-touch polyester and nylon with UV protection

-MIPAN regen robic: high-tenacity nylon

-regen cotna: cotton-like polyester with the feel of a natural fiber

 r-egen aerocool: rapid moisture absorbing and drying polyester

-regen aerosilver: anti-microbial polyester

-regen aerolight: lightweight polyester with high-performance moisture management

Hyosung is proud to have one of its new fabrics selected as a top 10 finalist in ISPO Textrends Outer Layer Category - a multi-function, performance stretch Dobby woven fabric, made with askin cool-touch polyester and creora ActiFit elastane with added UV protection for excellent fit and recovery.
