Recycled polyester fabric

Camira redefines closed looped recycled polyester

DUBAI, 18 days ago

Global textile manufacturer and designer of commercial, hospitality and residential fabrics, Camira has redefined its original closed loop recycled polyester, X2 for 2024.
 
To mark its 50th year in business and enduring commitment to tackling the global textile waste problem, Camira has significantly increased the percentage of textile-to-textile waste in its popular recycled polyester fabric, X2. Originally launched in 2012, X2 now contains 25% textile-to-textile recycled polyester, along with 75% post-consumer recycled polyester from plastic bottles.
 
Less than 1% of textiles worldwide are recycled into new products, and every seven minutes a stack of clothing, the height of Mount Everest, is sent to landfill. Using discarded textiles from the apparel industry, as well as yarn and fabric from its own waste streams, Camira has pioneered the latest X2 to make an even bigger impact, reducing its carbon footprint and illustrating the infinite opportunities of textile waste as a valuable resource.
 
Trash to trailblazer
Head of Creative at Camira, Lynn Kingdon, said: “X2 was Camira’s first 100% recycled textile to include closed loop post-industrial content from its own textile yarn remnants and selvedges. 12 years ago, there was nothing like X2 on the market. In 2024 our product, design and operations teams have worked really hard to be able to make an even greater material difference. So the new X2 is textile-to-textile, bottle to textile, trash to trailblazer.”
 
Comprising 33 dynamic colourways with 14 new shades, X2 is designed for hybrid spaces including commercial, hospitality and residential interiors. Suitable for seating, panels, curtains and drapery, X2 provides stretch, flammability and abrasion performance.
 
The fabric’s new colour palette embraces warm berry tones, cool blues, mauves, and turquoises, as well as subtle earthy shades, providing a colour scheme for every interior. The black base yarn in X2, composed of textile-to-textile waste, creates a textured grey mélange effect, reminiscent of a high-end wool, adding surface appeal and dimension.--TradeArabia News Service
