Due to the on-going coronavirus, Performance Days Munich will host the show via its digital platform from 9-10 December 2020, for brands interested in sustainable product innovations for the 2022/23 autumn/winter season. Hyosung will be there to present its latest offering of recycled multi-function fibres, in addition to its Home Everywhere collection of sustainable yarns developed in collaboration with Lenzing. 

“As consumers increasingly seek out sustainability, we continue to expand our offering of eco-friendly solutions to help our customers reach their sustainability goals,” said Mike Simko, Global Marketing Director, Hyosung-Textiles. “These goals can range from a focus on waste reduction to the elimination of using non-renewable resources, along with many others in between.”

Sustainable Solutions – Reuse. Recycle. Regen.

Hyosung will highlight its sustainable stretch and multi-fibre solutions to include its GRS-certified creora regen elastane and Mipan regen nylon both made with 100% reclaimed waste, along with its regen polyester made from 100% post-consumer waste. Hyosung will also present the expansion of its multi-functional 100% recycled fibre offering to include:

regen askin cool-touch with UV-protection polyester

regen cotna – cotton-like feel, quick-drying and pill-resistant polyester

regen aerolight – moisture-wicking, soft-touch, light-weight comfort polyester

regen aerocool – rapid moisture wicking, quick-drying polyester

Mipan regen robic – high-tenacity nylon

Hyosung x Lenzing Home Everywhere – Emerging to your new normal

The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the clothing preference for many consumers as they now spend much of their time at home, says Hyosung. Nowadays, more consumers look for comfortable, versatile and sustainable apparel that can be worn for multiple occasions and lasts longer, the company says.

Hyosung and Lenzing have introduced a collaborative collection of Home Everywhere eco-friendly fabrics made from comfortable, functional and sustainable yarns. The collection is comprised of three fabric concept groups, which includes a variety of unique blends featuring Lenzing’s cellulose fibres and Hyosung’s range of multi-function elastane, polyester and nylon fibres.

Using 50% less water and 60% less carbon footprint, these fibres result in a lower environmental impact than conventionally dyed fibres.

Sumptuous Sensations: Hyosung 100% recycled regen aerolight polyester with Tencel Modal fibres featuring Micro Technology offer super-fine touch and exquisite softness, producing lightweight, long-lasting, naturally comfortable fibres.

Versatile Function: A functional collection featuring Hyosung’s Mipan aqua-X nylon or aeroheat EX polyester with Tencel Lyocell fibres for temperature regulating, moisture management and UV protection.
