Maxxam Textiles launches recycled eco-nylon

Textile producer Maxxam Textiles has launched what it claims is a state-of-the-art recycled nylon, which aims to reduce CO2 emissions, consume less water, and use renewable energy.

Textile producer Maxxam Textiles has launched what it claims is a state-of-the-art recycled nylon, which aims to reduce CO2 emissions, consume less water, and use renewable energy.

The company, known for its crinkle stretch Maxxam fabric for the swimwear and sports industry, has developed Eco-Maxxam featuring Q-Nova.

Q-Nova is a new development from Maxxam Textiles’ Italian spinner, utilising an environmentally sustainable recycled polyamide 6 yarn made from industrial waste and carries the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 and Global Recycled Standard (GRS) Certification, which has enabled the development of an even more sustainable version of the Maxxam fabric.

Rosemary Moore, founder of Maxxam Textiles says: “I’m constantly striving for innovation and exploration in my work, using the latest textile machinery to push the potential of the Maxxam fabric innovation into the 21st century. While the original patented Maxxam fabric is low waste and cost-effective, since reshoring manufacturing to the UK I have been exploring more environmental and sustainable technology. I am very excited to bring Eco-Maxxam, featuring recycled nylon, to market and continue to discover the endless possibilities of Maxxam crinkle stretch fabric. We will also be expanding into cellulosic fibres as well as investigating more ecological polyurethane yarns.”

The new collection from Moore Maxxam, a non-gendered slow fashion children’s activewear label co-founded by Rosemary’s daughter, designer Iona Clive, is due to launch in March using Eco-Maxxam.
