Advansa, Sekem Team To Offer Advansa Thermo°Cool® Eco2 Egyptian Organic Cotton
The Netherlands-based polyester fiber manufacturer Advansa BV has partnered with Egypt-based
organic cotton textile producer Sekem Textile to offer Advansa Thermo°Cool® eco2 with Egyptian
Organic Cotton yarn for underwear and other first-layer garments.
The yarn features a 50/50 blend of Advansa's Thermo°Cool eco2 — a high-performance, post-consumer recycled polyethylene terephthalate fiber featuring Duoregulation™ evaporative cooling and thermo-buffering technology — and Sekem's Egyptian organic cotton fiber — which includes GIZA 86 and GIZA 90 cotton varieties that are cultivated without the use of synthetic insecticides, toxic pesticides or fertilizers; is certified to be carbon-neutral and sustainable; and, according to Sekem, offers improved elasticity.
The companies report that underwear featuring the Advansa Thermo°Cool eco2/Egyptian Organic Cotton yarn blend is soft, light and breathable; and regulates body temperature.
Sekem will spin the yarn and manufacture the underwear at its facility in Egypt.
