In a world grappling with environmental challenges, Fulgar, an Italian leader in man-made yarn production, is taking strides towards sustainable fashion with its innovative AMNI SOUL ECO® yarn. This bio-degradable polyamide yarn tackles the growing problem of microplastics, offering a solution that prioritizes both performance and environmental responsibility.
Microplastics, tiny fragments of plastic less than five millimeters in size, are a major threat to marine life and biodiversity. AMNI SOUL ECO® addresses this issue directly. Tests confirm that microplastics released when washing garments made with this yarn decompose twenty times faster in the marine environment compared to conventional synthetic yarns. This significantly reduces their harmful impact on our oceans and ecosystems.
Despite its focus on sustainability, AMNI SOUL ECO® doesn’t compromise on performance. The yarn’s bio-degradable component has no negative impact on wear, quality, or comfort. It retains the high performance of polyamide 6.6, ensuring garment durability, breathability, moisture management, and excellent color yield.
Prestigious fashion brands like Herno, Colmar, and Save the Duck have already chosen AMNI SOUL ECO® for their collections, recognizing their reliability, versatility, and ability to redefine sustainable fashion standards without sacrificing style or performance.
Fulgar’s dedication to sustainability extends beyond AMNI SOUL ECO®. The company boasts a robust portfolio of eco-conscious yarns, including Q-Nova® regenerated yarn, bio-based Evo® yarn, and Q-CYCLE®, a yarn derived from recycled plastic waste. Their commitment to R&D and environmental responsibility has earned them a leading position in the sustainable fashion industry
AMNI SOUL ECO® represents a significant step forward for the textile industry. By offering sustainable solutions that address pressing environmental issues, Fulgar paves the way for a more responsible and eco-conscious future for fashion.
Technical note: Bio-degradation performance is determined by ASTM D5511 and ASTM D6691 standard test methods. The yarn also conforms to Oeko-TEX STD 100 CLASS I Appendix 6 certification and guarantees data transparency for the yarn according to the LCA LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) model to identify and implement improvements that make the product and processes more sustainable.
