Saya, a Taiwana fiber performance manufacturer has announced the launch of a new fiber that claims to be made out of fabric offcuts. This offers more options to the textile industry and moves ahead of recycled PET bottles.
Its parent company Nan Ya Plastics claims to be the world’s largest manufacturer of recycled PET and has repurposed over 75bn bottles every year. Now the brand under Saya has focused its research and development of critical recycling sustainable issues that stare at the textile and garment industry. Saya aims to innovate and provide solutions for the industrial waste problems in the textile industry which include scrap, cutting waste, overstock fabric and used garments.
The three programs under Saya include Saya RSCUW, Saya RSCUW Raw and Saya Garma. Saya RSCUW focuses on the reduction of waste by 30% per yard by recycling the cutting scraps and overstock rolls of fabrics. Saya RSCUW Raw is made out of recycled fabric cutting scrap and colored PET bottles retaining their original color. This is done without bleaching or re-dyeing to ensure the carbon footprint is reduced with more efficiency. The third program is currently in the development stage and is focused on a complex recycling process of post-consumer garments while streamlining garment recycling by offering fiber solutions to selected brand partners.
Mike Shih, the spokesperson for Saya and Nan Ya stated that the textile industry has embraced recycling PET plastic bottles over the past several years and the Saya 365 has successfully offered several options within the technology. He further adds that these efforts were not enough and the brand needs to tackle the next level. He said that as the largest producers of performance fibers in Taiwan they feel the responsibility and are equipped with resources to do the necessary R&D.
