SEAQUAL

SEAQUAL™ RECYCLED MARINE PLASTIC

SEAQUAL™ was born from an observation: each year, 12 million tonnes of waste end up in the sea, 80% of which sinks into the depths. To counter this dramatic reality, the Spanish brand Seaqual 4U reached a new level in 2016 in the preservation of the seabed by creating a polyester fiber designed from plastic waste collected in the Mediterranean Sea and on beaches.

Developing an unprecedented virtuous post-consumption chain going from fishermen to consumers, the Hispanic company has thus succeeded in engaging all players in the textile sector through an eco-responsible collaborative platform. Acting as a catalyst, this ingredient brand, carrying emotions and commitments, accompanies and supports NGOs, partner fishermen, local communities and industries, towards healthier and re-evaluated marine life, inspiring for consumers.

COLLECTION

A revolution possible in particular thanks to the work of 400 partner fishing boats which scour the Mediterranean fishing out as much rubbish as possible, while on the beaches, voluntary collection initiatives are multiplying.


THE TRANSFORMATION

Once collected, the waste is then sorted, treated and then spun into a premium polyester fiber offering the same properties as a fiber made from virgin polyester fiber…. Except that in addition to depolluting, the “Upcycled Marine Plastic” fiber from SEAQUAL™ allows you to save up to 40% water and 50% energy, and this with a carbon footprint reduced by 60%.


THE DISTRIBUTION

A fiber that allows us to create fabrics for the world of fashion, sports, lingerie, swimwear, but also for furnishing articles or electronics. Can be woven as well as worked on knitting machines, SEAQUAL™ yarns are only distributed through two licensed Spanish spinners: Antex, for continuous yarns, and Vich-Gerona Textil for discontinuous yarns.

Available in a wide variety of sizes and finishes, SEAQUAL™ fiber can be used 100% in ecru or dyed yarn, or mixed with natural fibers such as organic cotton, Tencel, viscose, wool, linen ... A diversity that allowed us to develop the perfect composition to develop our new SEAQUAL™ certified fabric, today used to design all of our swimsuits as well as our parka .
