A new cotton-like fabric from Teijin Frontier made from recycled materials offers an eco-friendly, high-performance material for athleisure fashion.
The material is woven from a polyester filament yarn made with recycled materials. To achieve the cotton-like feel, the team from Teijin Frontier used a proprietary fiber that optimizes processing, a yarn processing method that randomizes the thickness in filaments, and a knitting technology that adjusts the texture and density to mimic the appearance and feel of cotton.
