Unifi Inc., aiming to expand its footprint in the sustainable textiles market, has inked a manufacturing and distribution agreement with Palmetto Synthetics to expand its Repreve line into staple fibers.
A leading U.S. producer of multifilament polyester and nylon textured yarns and related raw materials, Unifi launched its recycled line of products under the brand name Repreve in 2007. The product line utilizes recycled materials including preconsumer manufacturing waste and postconsumer plastic bottles. The Repreve fiber components are used in fabrics for apparel, automotive products and medical applications. In addition, many U.S. retailers and brands, including Patagonia, The North Face and Haggar have incorporated Repreve products into their apparel lines.
