New fabrics from Carrington Textiles weave in sustainability

UK-based workwear textile manufacturer Carrington Textiles – exporting to more than 80 countries worldwide –  has announced the launch of nine new fabrics. The fabrics are developed using sustainable fibres that include recycled polyester, BCI and organic cotton.

The company also introduces a new technology that biodegrades synthetic fibres. It is being used in workwear fabrics for the first time. At the same time, a flame retardant fabric is being introduced with an excellent durability that in turn gives garments a longer life. For the production of the new textiles, recycled polyester from plastic bottles and responsibly sourced cotton is being used, as well as a new technology that biodegrades synthetic fibres.

The company states to have invested heavily into R&D to develop these products as part of its stretch, Balance Range and flame retardant collections. The textile manufacturer also  introduced Constance 210 gsm and Balaton 255 gsm. Both incorporate REPREVE recycled polyester made from plastic bottles, and BCI cotton in their composition. They also utilise the high stretch technology from XLANCE® which is eco-friendly, solvent-free, and produced using 100% renewable energy.
