ISPO is a Germany-based leading international sports trade organization aiming to positively impact society and our environment through sports and the outdoors. Every year, the organization calls for innovators from around the world to introduce new performance textiles through the Textrends awards. Past winners have included products from industry leaders such as Toray and Cordura.
In January 2022, an international jury selected our recycled, dope-dyed COSMOS™ fabrics, which exemplified the following key criteria:
- Sustainability without neglecting high tech performance
– Dyeing and finishing
– Creativity challenges in trying times
– Greater circularity
The three winning fabrics, all woven from Baichuan’s 600D dope dyed yarn, placed top ten in the Soft Equipment category, which recognizes eco-friendly textiles that are “lightweight, durable, abrasion-resistant, UV protecting, and waterproof–suitable for tents, backpacks, sleeping bags, shoes, and other performance products”.
Made exclusively from recycled post-consumer PET bottles, our dope dyed COSMOS™ fabrics feature 58% lower carbon footprint and 87% lower water usage compared to conventional batch-dyed fabrics, according to third-party life cycle assessment. These fabrics’ durability and good weathering performance make them ideal for outdoor gear, outdoor furniture, bags and backpacks, and work uniforms.
Furthermore, our 1000+ hue digital colorimetry database allows for rapid and precise color matching, eliminating the usual process challenges around dope dyed fabrics. This maximizes customization potential and enables our clients to make sustainable material choices without sacrificing aesthetic freedom.
We at Baichuan are proud to support our customers with technology to combat our world’s environmental challenges. “It is a great honor to receive the ISPO Textrends Award, as it recognizes our efforts in providing eco-friendly options for brands in the outdoors industry,” says Feipeng Zhang, Baichuan’s founder and Chairman. “Our team feels more motivated than ever to continue developing sustainable products and manufacturing processes.”
