We love the feeling of a new garment that moves our planet towards a greener and better future. ECONYL®, a regenerated, infinitely recyclable nylon made from waste, makes what you wear match what you believe in.
That’s why we created this marketplace: a place where our community can get together, make conscious purchases of products made with ECONYL®, and learn more about how to be truly sustainable. These garments can Live & Repeat, changing shape and function, and so we can help preserve our planet’s resources. From waste to garment, over and over again, in a virtuous and infinite loop.

Since it was invented in 1938, nylon has provided new solutions that have improved a wide range of aspects of human life. But how can we divert it from polluting the Earth? Is there any sustainable solution? With ECONYL®, we’re writing a different story. A story that doesn’t end with waste but starts with it. ECONYL®, a regenerated nylon made from nylon waste, is infinitely recyclable and can unleash endless possibilities for makers, creators, and consumers. Why do we do it? Because we have one mission: to make the world a better place.
Our journey starts with rescuing waste that otherwise would be polluting the Earth. Then, we sort the waste collected to recover all of the nylon possible. Using a radical regeneration and purification process, we recycle it right back to its original purity. The regenerated nylon is now ready to be processed into textile yarn, ready to become a nightgown or a brand-new carpet.
ECONYL® is made by Aquafil, a global leader in the synthetic fibers industry and a pioneer in quality, innovation, and sustainability.

The fashion industry is responsible for 10% of the world’s annual carbon emissions, and at Aquafil, we take true sustainability very seriously.
We firmly believe we can make the difference and are committed to change the world. It’s not a matter of clearing our conscience; it’s a matter of all of us doing our share. It’s a hard job, but real change takes effort, creativity, and, more than anything, transparency. This is why the word ‘greenwashing’ will never be in our vocabulary.
