Indian yarn manufacturer Vardhman Textiles and private sector conglomerate Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) are to collaborate on new high performance fabrics including a sustainable offering made from recycled PET bottles.

The alliance will see the companies work closely to develop new manufacturing processes and partner on the latest fabrics and yarns under RIL’s R| Elan brand, which are geared toward active wear and denim.

The line includes the new R|Elan Green Gold fabric, which is manufactured using recycled PET bottles and is designed for use in trousers and denim.

“We see many exciting possibilities with R|Elan to create new fabric developments,” said Suchita Jain, joint managing director of Vardhman Textiles Limited. “Our strengths have always been rapid innovation and creating strong product ranges that are acceptable to brands, and Reliance is the perfect partner for our developments. The technical team at R|Elan is very supportive in enhancing our manufacturing prowess.”

The agreement was signed this week by Jain and Gunjan Sharma, CEO of the polyester division at RIL.
