Due to the enormous necessity to reduce the ecological footprint, FILASA always seeks sustainability and environment preservation. In that regard, it constantly tries to implement in its production more sustainable mechanisms and renewable, recyclable, organic and biodegradable materials.
Following FILASA’S mission statement, it presents "soYarn", a yarn resulting of fibers blending such as cotton, wool or bamboo with the only protein material in the world of botanic origin: Soy.
Soy’s fiber is the result of production residues from soy oil, tofu, and soy milk, which are normally discarded. The obtaining process of this fiber is harmless and recyclable.
Due to its renewable and biodegradable characteristics, it is, therefore, known as a “green fiber”.
Soy gives a noble, silk-like appearance and shine, the same moisture absorption as cotton, a superior UV protection than cotton, silk and viscose. It provides a "skin to skin" feeling due to its softness and comfort.
In addition to the aspects mentioned above, it has also several features such as: antibacterial, protective and nourishing effect to the skin and contains 16 amino acids such as hydroxyl, carboxyl and cinnamid.
“soYarn”, a yarn of excellence, ideal for products that are in contact with the skin, such as: clothing, underwear, sportswear and home textiles.
