RECYCTEX is a textile innovation company providing sustainable solutions for brands and designers. The company focuses on R&D and production of sustainable fabric created from plastic bottles, discarded clothes, ghost fishing nets and textile waste.
Since 2007, RECYCTEX founder Steven Chueng and his team have been studying and designing fabric using post-consumer recycled polyester material from China. RECYCTEX was the first company to create recycled nylon woven fabric from ghost fishing nets. And in 2018, we developed a process to create made-to-order recycled fabric with low minimum order quantities (as low as 200 mt per colour).
RECYCTEX works with more than 100 fashion brands across sportswear, fashion wear and accessories.
The Sea Island Project
With the Sea Island Project, RECYCTEX is working to build a plastic bottle recycling system near the East China Sea Islands, which suffer from plastic pollution and limited recycling activities. The project focuses mainly on recycling plastic bottles and fishing nets in order to make high quality recycled fibers and fabrics. In addition, this project collaborates with the local community to clean up beaches and reduce marine plastic.
