FISHTALE – A MARINE STORY by Hung Yen Knitting and HyosungTNC COMMITS to UNECE SUSTAINABILITY PLEDGE

We have officially made public our commitment to The Sustainability Pledge from UNECE (United Nations Economic Commission for Europe), an innovative project launched in 2021 to promote and enable sustainable and ethical practices in the fashion industry. In collaboration with our supply chain partners, we are supporting and accelerating the transition to a circular economy.
“Transparency, traceability and circularity are essential if we aim to achieve globally responsible consumption and production patterns.” said Maria Teresa Pisani, Chief ad interim, Trade Facilitation Section at UNECE. With The Sustainability Pledge, we are providing an opportunity for companies that have integrated sustainable initiatives to their business models long ago, to share the reality of feasible and successful sustainable solutions and practices.”
For Hung Yen K&D and Hyosung TNC, this Pledge marks one of the many important achievements witnessed in the past months for N850 FishTale, the project launched nearly one year ago at Interfilière Paris, in July 2023.

“The reason why we decided to candidate our Pledge for one product instead as generic corporate entities, it is specifically because we sensed the importance of marking our contribution, as an example of successful R&D cooperation, especially in the delicate transitional moment that we are witnessing in the textile and fashion industry,” says Claudia Anselmi, General Director at Hung Yen Knitting & Dyeing.

First, its core composition which is made from 100 percent recycled materials. Second, its production process’s flow, which is done using the 100 percent recycled and certified chemicals Revecol® by Erca TCS and Bluesign certified dyestuffs and inks for both solid colors and printed version.
> 80 percent regenerated Nylon made with ghost fishing nets – Regen Ocean nylon, Global Recycled Standard certified;
> 20 percent recycled Spandex from fiber manufacturing waste – Regen Elastane, Recycled Claim Standard certified;
Created initially as an R&D technical study on new recycled raw material and optimization of the production process – minus 30 percent water usage for solid color’s flow – FishTale fabric became immediately interesting for further developments thanks to the multiple manifested properties: from chlorine resistance to a super soft hand feeling, which made it a designed product for sustainable and durable solutions for performance swimwear applications and more.
The transparent, traceable and circular soul of N850 FishTale fabric, along with its unique properties are already protagonist for the upcoming season of some of the top performance and fashion swimwear and sportswear brands: YAMAMAY, VITAMIN A, VENUS, GOOD AMERICAN, LA SPORTIVA have already adopted N850 FishTale fabric for their 2024 swimwear and active wear collections.
You can meet Hung Yen Knitting and Dyeing VISION & VISIBILITY: SCALING TRANSPARENCY event in Milan on the 19th of June, where the United Nation experts, policymakers, businesses representatives, academics and NGOs will gather for a virtual round table to debate the progresses made so far and what lies ahead.
