made with waste materials
What is Recycled Nylon?
Recycled Nylon is an alternative to Nylon made from waste products. Typically, Nylon has a significantly detrimental environmental impact. Still, this material's creators seek to help reduce this fabric's effects on the environment by using recycled base materials.
Why do we use it?
Since recycled Nylon is chemically identical to nylon 6, it has all the normal nylon fabric attributes. This fiber is stretchy when woven, relatively tough, and easy to incorporate into tightly-knit garments and industrial textiles.
Recycling Nylon is still more expensive than the new Nylon, but it has many environmental advantages. A lot of research is currently being conducted to improve the quality and reduce the recycling process costs.
Where is made from?
Made from waste, it's infinitely recyclable. It can unleash infinite possibilities for makers, creators, and consumers, making the world a better place by pioneering closed-loop regeneration processes and delivering sustainable products.
A large part of the recycled Nylon produced comes from old fishing nets. This is a great solution to divert garbage from the ocean. It also comes from nylon carpets, tights, etc.
Our source of supply is China-based, and therefore all materials are traceable and duly certified.
At Rivta, this is how we transform the waste nylons into our new bags:
