With two decades of experience manufacturing recycled fabrics, Camira is about to launch its fixating new fabric made from 100% post-consumer recycled polyester.
Rivet, launching at Orgatec, is a development that marks 20 years of making recycled fabrics from the global textile innovator.
Designed to blend the aesthetic qualities of luxury woollen apparel with modern performance sportswear, Rivet is a fabric borne out of the development of an entirely new yarnstring made from 100% REPREVE® fibre, created from recycled PET plastic bottles.
The fabric, available in 33 colourways, has a lightly textured hopsack construction which emulates the swathe and sheen of sophisticated suiting in a well-heeled synthetic. Rivet features unique colour detail and the whole palette is made from 13 yarns; through different combinations, mixing and coordinating, new colours have been created to work together and coordinate with other ranges from Camira.
Jodie Padgett, designer of Rivet, commented:
“Rivet is an example of connecting textile traditions with future innovation – finding new and sustainable ways to make fabric. Plastic bottles which would otherwise end up in landfill are used to make the yarn, and to make one metre of fabric takes just 22 plastic bottles.
The hopsack weave in the fabric allows for a textured pattern without compromising the overall colour direction. The colourways have been developed to coordinate beautifully with other ranges, such as our textured fabric, Aspect, and offer a post-consumer fabric alternative to our customers.”
Rivet meets cigarette and match and Low Hazard flammability standards and comes with a 10 year guarantee. Camira will be showcasing Rivet exclusively at Orgatec from 25-29 October in Hall 6.1, on stand C70.
Camira are also exhibiting at The BCFA OPEN at Bridgewater Hall, Manchester on stand 12A this week. To register to attend this event, click below.
