Gucci has taken a step towards sustainability with its latest look, delivering two sets of matching track jackets and pants in jacquard-printed ECONYL nylon.
Gucci has crafted the pieces from ECONYL nylon. This sustainable material is made by sorting and cleaning waste materials to find the product’s original nylon fibers, which is then regenerated to produce material very similar to virgin nylon. From there, a textile yarn is produced, which is then spun into producing a new product. As ECONYL’s website states, “the goal is that once all products containing ECONYL are no longer useful to customers, they can go back into step one of the regeneration system.”
