Sateri, a Shanghai-based fibre producer, has launched Finex brand for recycled fibres!
The name Finex is a short form for ‘Fibre Next’ and is an innovative next-generation cellulosic fibre with recycled content.
The fabric has already been used for the production of garment and Lafuma, a French-based company for outdoor equipment and clothing, has used the fabric for the production of garment.
Besides, Rico Lee, a Chinese designer, will also be soon launching his Finex apparel range.
The company back in March this year made another breakthrough innovation of producing viscose using recycled textile waste. Since, then it has been working in collaboration with downstream yarn and garment manufacturers to introduce recycled fibre products to consumer market.
Finex is manufactured using a bio-based natural fibre combined with technologies which made cellulosic fibre recycling possible. Tom Liu, Sateri’s Commercial Vice President, commented “The Finex tagline ‘Together for A Better Next’ expresses our aspiration to be the partner of choice for next-generation fibre – we thank Lafuma and Rico Lee for pioneering with us on this quest.”
Less than 1 per cent of material used for manufacturing clothes is recycled into new clothing, which creates a big opportunity for the textile fibre recycling, especially in China which is the biggest textile producing country globally.
Furthermore, Sateri became a council member of the China Association of Circular Economy (CACE) last month. Since then it has been working closely with CACE’s Textile Waste Comprehensive Utilisation Committee for promoting the industrial-scale textile waste recycling.
