In line with its mission to provide more sustainable and creative embroidery methods, Coloreel AB, Jönköping/Sweden, will shift over to offer 100% recycled polyester (PET) thread to be used with the instant thread coloring technology for embroideries. This will provide customers with the ability to create more sustainable embroideries with thousands of colors, CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, black), RGB/HEX (red, green, blue) and PMS (Pantone Matching System) compatible.
The polyester is created from 100% recycled post-consumer PET bottles and developed in collaboration with the thread manufacturer Madeira Garnfabrik, Rudolf Schmidt KG, Freiburg/Germany. The colored recycled thread has passed through all industry standard quality testing and provides same fastness properties as virgin PET thread and is certified Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex.
With the ambition to further minimize impact, the thread cone is made from recycled plastics and will be packaged and shipped in recycled carton boxes.
