Recycled Nylon (not mentioned)


Hi Everyone,

Great historically informative article called Nylon Run by Robert E. Bryan, in the REMIX section of the T-magazine (SundayNYTimesMen’s Fashion issue-03-08-09) about Nylon in Fashion.

I would like to just add that there has been a more recent development, RECYCLED Nylon as  a Knit, and RESTORE CLOTHING, according to the yarn company UNIFI, is commercially the first to market with the new fiber, knit by our friends at United Knitting.
