Leading textile research center, confirms circular material, cycora® exceeds quality standards of recycled materials.

Introduced in 2021 by Ambercycle, a trailblazer in material science, cycora® uses end-of-life textiles as feedstock for new high-performance circular polyester. Unlike conventional recycled materials that often face limitations in quality and application, cycora® polyester maintains consistent quality without compromising on performance. This enables the creation of enduring products whose longevity reduces waste and extends the environmental benefits of Ambercycle's breakthrough material.

As global demand for sustainable materials continues to rise, top-tier fashion brands have implemented cycora® yarns into their products validating its status as an emerging frontrunner in circular materials, further backed by CETI's recent assessment. 

"We were pleased to collaborate with Ambercycle in support of our mission to promote and accelerate innovation and sustainability in the textile industry," said Manisha Mariva, Recycling and Circular Economy Manager of CETI. "Our comprehensive testing showed that cycora® material performed as well as a virgin alternative in a battery of processes and stands out from other recycled textiles for its performance and versatility. cycora® material is a noteworthy contributor to the industry and is establishing a new standard for recycled materials."
