Calik Denim, a Turkish denim manufacturer, has introduced E-Denim technology taking the circularity and recycled content to a next level.
The innovation was demonstrated for Spring/Summer 2022, which features the ability to incorporate high levels of recycled content into denim without affecting the quality.
The technology allows complete recycled content rate to 50 per cent in stretch fabrics and 80 per cent to 100 per cent in rigid product groups.
The highlight of the technology is that it helps maintain the fabric quality which in other technologies lowers or becomes more brittle.
“As the amount of recycled fibre increases in ring yarn production, there is a decrease in ring yarn product quality. To keep the quality and recycled material content high, we use 100 per cent recycled open-end yarn as the core and integrate it into the ring yarn,” said Irem Donerci, Marketing Communications specialist, Calik.
