ECONYL by Aquafil

ECONYL is Aquafil’s proprietary brand of regenerated bulked continuous filament (BCF) type 6 nylon. It is produced from pre-consumer and post-consumer nylon content recovered from fishing nets, textiles, and carpet. The depolymerization and purification process used to create ECONYL yarn is a closed loop system, which allows it to be recycled and remade into raw material repeatedly while maintaining the same quality as virgin nylon. ECONYL is REACH compliant and OKEO-TEX certified and is used in a variety of commercial applications, including flooring and upholstery.
