Regenerated nylon made from waste materials is used to create a new collection from Levi's

Aquafil's ECONYL brand has partnered with Levi's to develop a new men's collection made from regenerated nylon that has come from waste materials such as fishing nets and spent carpets. ECONYL fiber helps divert global waste streams from landfills and oceans. It is used to produce a wide range of textile products, including socks, sportswear, underwear, swimwear, and carpets. This is the first time the regenerated yarn will be used in jeans.

The creation of this new collection is a sustainable move that aims to make a small dent in the ocean's pollution and also sever a dependence on cotton production. By partnering with ECONYL for the first time, Levi's aims to show its commitment to a sustainable supply chain.
