Material Highlight Of The Week: ECONYL®

At FLÕWY, we make all our activewear pieces from ECONYL® materials. Keep on reading to find out more about  ECONYL® and what makes it an exceptional and sustainable choice.


1) About ECONYL®

ECONYL® regenerated polyamide is 100% made from waste that would otherwise pollute the Earth, such as fishing nets and carpet scraps from oceans and lands, using a closed-loop process that transforms these waste materials into high performance, premium-quality textile. By collecting and using these waste materials, we can not only relieve our oceans from the burden of pollution but can also make a more sustainable choice, as ECONYL® is infinitely recyclable. 

2) How is ECONYL® made?

4. Reimagine: 

Thanks to its unique properties, the yarn can be recycled infinitely, without ever losing its quality.
