Sustainable production of tailor-made yarns
The production of our yarns is fully circular, a zero-waste unit. In our recycling unit, we convert polyester lumps and rest-material of our weaving mills into shredded flakes and then compound this into polyester granulates. These granulates are then again used in dedicated spinning lines at our yarn extrusion plant in Mouscron, Belgium.
