The innovation in a nutshell
A dissolvable thread that makes repairing and recycling a breeze.
More in detail
Zippers and buttons make garment recycling complicated as the removal of such details calls for manual assistance, making the process both costly and time consuming. Resortecs solves this problem by supplying a thread that simply dissolves at a high temperature.
This innovation works double wonders – it makes both repairing and recycling a breeze. And when used for regular seams, the whole piece of clothing can easily be disassembled. The fabric can then be used over and over in new ways, cutting the need to produce fabric from scratch.
Stitch by stitch, this innovation brings new life to fashion.
