Rethinking fashion. With circular fabrics.
What if raw materials were like water?
What if fashion were circular?
What if we had zero waste?
We at YARN-TO-YARN® #StopWasteNotFashion. Because sustainable fashion is the only way to keep the joy in fashion.
Game Changer Technology for YARN-TO-YARN® Recycling
YARN-TO-YARN® is our commitment to closing the recycling gap for synthetic yarn blends and functional textiles through our Molecular Bio-Recycling technology. Using natural enzymes, we recover raw materials on a molecular level - in a purely biological process inspired by nature.
Our flagship project is developing the technology for polyamide-elastane (PA/EA) blends and establishing a circular YARN-TO-YARN® ecosystem.
To bring this game changing technology to market, we partner with forward-thinking textile companies and the Migros Pioneer Fund who share our passion for sustainability and innovation and who are unafraid to challenge the status quo. Together, we are creating a new industry standard - one that values the environment and the future of our planet as much as financial results.
