Burberry introduces new collection made from sustainable nylon
Burberry has launched a new capsule fashion collection made from a sustainable nylon yarn.
Called ECONYL, the material is manufactured from regenerated fishing nets, fabric scraps and industrial plastic.
The collection includes a new version of Burberry’s lightweight classic car coat.
Pam Batty, VP corporate responsibility at Burberry, said: “We are proud to use the ECONYL yarn in this collection because it shows how we can actively tackle a problem like plastic waste and create beautiful, luxury products at the same time. This collection is just one of the ways Burberry is actively disrupting and improving every stage of how we create our products because we know our industry can play an key role in building a more sustainable future through science and innovation.”
Burberry has recently worked with Company 37.5 to use volcanic sand and waste coconut shell in thermoregulation technology for quilted jackets. It has also introduced Refibra, a new yarn produced by upcycling cotton leftovers from the brand’s Burberry Mill in Yorkshire, to make its dust bags for all jewellery, shows and leather goods.
