Cycora, developed by Ambercycle Inc, is a Los Angeles-based materials science company that aims to end waste in the fashion industry. The company will collaborate with Pertex to produce performance woven fabrics designed to be compatible with Ambercycle end-of-life solutions to “have minimal impact when being regenerated back into Cycora to start the cycle again”.

The Ambercycle ecosystem “enables the consolidation, regeneration and reintegration” of end-of-life textiles back into supply chains, reducing the extraction of finite resources from the planet. The company’s technology enables this movement, regenerating textiles at a molecular level while matching the quality of what today comes from petroleum.

With its 40-year history in fabric development, Pertex manufactures lightweight wovens for technical performance apparel. Pertex brand partners include well-known outdoor and sportswear brands.

Using its expertise in product development, Pertex will work in partnership with Cycora to produce these performance woven fabrics.

Steve Laycock, Pertex brand director, says: “We are constantly striving for new ways in which to reduce our environmental impact. This partnership with Ambercycle offers new opportunities to achieve these goals. For example, our Pertex Revolve fabrics are mono-material made entirely from recycled polyester. Currently, this polyester is from PET bottles, but the partnership with Ambercycle carves a pathway for a new truly circular fabric made through textile-to-textile regeneration.”

Shay Sethi, Ambercycle CEO , adds: “In the journey to develop a truly circular infrastructure in the fashion industry, we wanted to utilize Cycora materials in advanced, technical products while setting a precedent for intentional design. The partnership with Pertex allows for circular materials to thrive in the toughest of environments—climbing, hiking, backpacking, and so much more. Pertex and Cycora are naturally aligned to accelerate the pursuit of material harmony.”
