Coloreel has launched a new recycled polyester thread to be used with the groundbreaking embroidery technology that enables the thread to be colored as per demand. As per Textile World, the thread was launched in collaboration with world leading manufacturer Madeira. The 100-per cent recycled polyester thread can be used with the instant thread coloring technology for embroideries. This will enable customers to create more sustainable embroideries with thousands of colors, CMYK, RGB/HEX and PMS compatible.
The polyester thread has been created from 100-per cent recycled post-consumer PET bottles. It has passed through all industry standard quality testing and provides same fastness properties as virgin polyester thread and is certified standard 100 by OEKO-TEX®. The recycled thread will be sold in sets of 6 x 10 kilometer thread reels. With the ambition to further minimize impact, the thread cone is made from recycled plastics and will be packaged and shipped in recycled carton boxes.
