R|Elan™ GreenGold – From PET bottles to sustainable and value-added textiles
R|Elan™ range of fabrics offers multiple possibilities with inherent technologies that bring about innovative and lasting features in the garment for the consumer. R|Elan™ GreenGold fabric, which is made from 100% post-consumer used PET bottles, is a core part of the R|Elan™ sustainable product portfolio and it helps provide eco-friendly solutions to the fashion industry.
GreenGold can combine sustainability with various functional benefits like moisture management in R|Elan™ Kooltex, thermal insulation through R|Elan™ AirTherm and all-weather comfort in the form of R|Elan™ AllClima. R|Elan™ GreenGold can also enhance fabric sustainability with R|Elan™ EcoGold with CiCLO® which enables activation of biomimetic biodegradation under specific conditions. GreenGold is also available in the pre-coloured (dope dyed) form in a wide variety of shades, thus reducing the need for downstream dyeing.
Due to its versatile nature, GreenGold can be used across a wide range of applications in apparel such as casual wear, denim, formals, activewear, woven tops and bottoms, women’s western wear and home textile applications. R|Elan™ GreenGold is also available with R|Elan™ Cotluk, a fabric that offers the much-desired cotton look and feel in apparel.
