100% REGENERATED NYLON FROM ECONYL ® ITALY
It is sustainability by regenerating, reusing, remaking.
Econyl yarn is made from discarded fishing nets from the ocean, ghost nets and landfills in collaboration with Healthy Seas Foundation and Aquafil of Italy. Nylon waste which otherwise would be polluting the earth is transformed into yarn and technical performance fabrics. It is same as new nylon which can be recycled and regenerated. Again and again.
PLAYFIKS® is also part of Econyl® e-shop a global platform for conscious, sustainable and responsible brands.
100% RECYCLED POLYESTER
It gives a second life to a material that’s not biodegradable and would otherwise end up in a landfill or the ocean and damage the environment.
The Global Recycled Standard (GRS) certification is an international, voluntary, full product standard that sets requirements of recycled content, chain of custody, social and environmental practices and chemical restrictions to-
- verify responsible social, environmental and chemical practices during production.
- ensure accurate content claims and good working conditions.
- ensure harmful environmental and chemical impacts are minimised. This includes ginning, spinning, weaving and knitting, dyeing, printing and sewing of products.
100% RECYCLED LABELS
Even labels are recycled. Care labels used on PLAYFIKS products are recycled and certified by OEKO-TEX.
To reduce the impact on the environment without using the new resources PLAYFIKS® reuses existing discarded fabrics (which would otherwise would end up in landfills) by converting them into high quality value added sustainable products.
Upcycling contributes to the elimination of waste through reuse of materials and conservation of the environment, in particular, reduction in landfill and pollution.
PLAYFIKS® products have 100% recycled sewing threads made from post consumer plastic bottles. They are made in Germany, by Gütermann and certified by OEKO-TEX®.The thread requires less energy and resources where CO2 emissions are significantly reduced, conserving the environment and saving natural resources. They are also stretchable for extra comfort and smooth seams.
What is Anti-microbial fabric ?
Textile that offers protection against bacteria, mould, mildew.
Antimicrobial treatment on the fabrics are designed to inhibit growth or eliminate bacteria or fungi. It increases comfort, extends life of the fabric and curtails post activity foul odour.
PLAYFIKS® products are tested and certified by International testing laboratories for anti-microbial properties.
Moisture-wicking is quick-dry.
Higher the standard of moisture-wicking, faster the transfer of sweat from inner to outer layer of fabric, dispersion and eventual evaporation. This maintains body temperature by keeping it dry.
PLAYFIKS ® products are tested, authenticated and certified by International laboratories for their moisture-wicking properties.
With quality comes responsibility. With mission comes integrity.
PLAYFIKS® products are manufactured to high standards of ethics and compliance at SA8000 certified and audited factories.
