RubyMoon Gym to Swim

This project will explore the separation of nylon from elastane in the most environmentally friendly way to create a new sustainable material for swimwear and sportswear using waste nylon. It will seek to develop a superior yarn that mitigates micro plastic shedding that pollutes our air, oceans and soil, whilst also reducing the demand for virgin materials.

As a multi-disiplinary team, we are thrilled to be taking this first step towards enhanced circular economy textiles in the UK: to provide superior materials for next generation watersports that stop pollution.
