Hyosung Showing Certified Textiles At Intertextile Shanghai

Hyosung, manufacturer of Creora, a spandex brand will present its latest innovations in certified textile solutions for sustainability and dyeable spandex at Intertextile Shanghai Apparel in Stall E103.

For the first time since COVID -19, Hyosung will once again support many of its major mill partners as co-exhibitors in its booth, which has been a longstanding Hyosung Intertextile Shanghai (ITS) tradition.

“We are happy to have 24 co-exhibitors with us of which seven are from East China, 12 from South China and five from South Korea,” Scott Park, Hyosung Chinese Marketing Director said.

“We have found it is a benefit for apparel manufacturers to be able to see all the fabrics produced by our mill partners, made with our innovative fibre technology,” Park added.

The South Korean company will show fabrics made from Creora bio-based spandex which is USDA and SGS-certified spandex, partly made with renewable resources, providing reduced carbon emissions.

“According to a recent third-party LCA, the manufacture of Creora bio-based spandex, reduces its carbon footprint by 20 percent and decreases water use by 50 percent, as against when producing conventional spandex,” Hyosung said.

It will also show Regen ocean nylon, which is GRS-certified, 100 percent recycled nylon made from discarded fishing nets and other reclaimed nylon waste.

Hyosung said it conducts an extensive collection, chemical recycling, and creation process to produce exceptional-quality yarn that meets brands’ performance expectations and contributes to their corporate sustainability goals.

Third party LCA data shows that the manufacture of 1 kg Regen made with discarded fishing nets reduces CO2 emissions by 73 percent, fossil resource use by 75 percent, and water consumption by 98 percent when compared with manufacturing conventional nylon.

Also on exhibit is Creora Color+ spandex, which is a special acid/reactive dyeable spandex and has the same performance stretch characteristics as its flagship fibre, Creora PowerFit.

It also has the added benefit of providing long-lasting richer colours in nylon and natural fibre blends, which are popular among leading intimate, activewear and ready-to-wear brands.
