Econyl® Regenerated Nylon

Our Thermocline range, swimwear and OceanPositive rashguards are made using ECONYL® recycled nylon.
Nylon waste otherwise polluting the Earth, like fishing nets, carpet flooring and industrial plastic from all over the world, is transformed into ECONYL® regenerated nylon. It’s exactly the same as brand new nylon and can be recycled, recreated and remoulded again and again.

That means you can create new products and buy new products without having to use new resources.

As well as being a solution on waste, ECONYL® regenerated nylon also reduces the global warming impact of nylon by up to 90% compared with the material from oil.

“This is a fantastic idea, one which demonstrates what we can, and should, do for the oceans”.

‘Her Deepness’ Sylvia Earle.

ECONYL® yarn is made by Aquafil – an Italian company which has developed an ingenious process to recycle nylon waste back into first grade quality nylon yarn.

For every 10,000 tons of ECONYL® raw material, Aquafil are able to save 70,000 barrels of crude oil and avoid 57,000 tonnes of CO2 eq. emissions. As well as being a solution on waste, ECONYL® regenerated nylon is also better when it comes to climate change. It reduces the global warming impact of nylon by up to 80% compared with the material from oil.
