One of the biggest yarn-dye companies, Huafu Top Dyed Melange Yarn Co., Ltd. (華孚色紡), already joined SPIIN™ with the achievement largely decreasing the waste water discharge in China. In addition, Singtex has already built the partnership with Repreve to produce recycled fiber with S.Café® yarn to further demonstrate creativity and uniqueness.
S.Café® is a technical composite fiber used to make yarn and then becomes knitted or woven fabric through a series of manufacturing processes. S.Café® utilizes the natural ability of coffee grounds to adsorb odors for a comfortable wearing experience and providing UV protection and fast drying. S.Café® has won Best Invention at Geneva Inventions and Pittsburgh Invention Gold Medal Award of Merit. Additionally, S.Café® obtained GRS (Global Recycle Standard ) certification by Control Union (Holland base notarization unit) and Recycled Material Certification by TÜV (Germany base notarization unit).
