“Fashion designer Jonathan Cohen has used Econyl nylon to create his ten fall/winter 2020 pieces in a nod to zero-waste design. The designer says the use of Econyl furthers the company’s commitment to “taking responsibility for its impact on the world.”
Cohen says designing with Econyl has given him the opportunity to get creative and reinvent waste.
Econyl is a brand of regenerated nylon that is made from recycled waste instead of oil and is also regenerable an infinite number of times without any compromise in quality, according to Aquafil, the company that makes Econyl nylon. The yarn is made from waste from landfills and oceans including fishnets, carpets, textile scraps and industrial plastic.”
