Unifi, a producer of textured and other processed yarns, is known for its recycled fiber brand Repreve. Unifi is increasing the versatility of Repreve by combining more performance benefits with sustainability options for the benefit of consumers in Asia and Europe. This expansion into new global markets underscores the company’s dedication to remaining a leader in sustainable solutions and recycled products around the world.
Repreve with Augusta CL is designed to provide the natural look and feel of cotton and the superior performance of synthetics. Unifi also has a new, longer Repreve staple fiber that is ideal for wool blends. Repreve filament is blended with cationic-dyeable and disperse-dyeable polyester. Repreve with Reflexx is a high stretch fiber for improved fit, comfort and performance.
The company is focused on providing customers with eco-friendly products with the added performance benefits that consumers expect in products they wear and use every day. Its goal is to be a global resource for customers no matter where they choose to do business.
Unifi has entered into collaborations with Korteks, a licensed manufacturer of Repreve in Turkey, and Sun Chemical in Taiwan. These collaborations will greatly expand distribution channels for Repreve, helping to shorten lead times and broaden options for customers elsewhere in the world.
