Aligned with this season’s Focus Topic: Nothing to Waste - Closing the Loop
Safety & Durability
The fiber that is mainly used safety and durability is Nylon e.g. Polyamide. Nylon fiber is a polymer, which means that it is composed of a long chain of carbon-based molecules called monomers. This type of fabric is commonly used in tough sportswear and safety gear, because of its elasticity, lightness, durability and strength.
Nylon is not available in all of the parts that are needed for a functional monocomponent style, therefore it is the most difficult fiber to integrate in the circular “Closed Loop” process. Let’s take a look at the jacket for instance.
