GRS-certified 100% recycled polyester yarn created from post-consumer PET bottles 

Our regen is the first product in Korea that applied a technology that extracts and recycles useful ingredients from discarded PET bottles. Fifty bottles can produce 1 kg of yarn. Regen received the world’s first GRS certification in the sector of recycled polyester fiber. Since regen is produced from recycled materials, it is effective in reducing landfill volume and CO2 emissions. It is widely used as an alternative to virgin polyester as there is no difference in function or quality from existing polyester yarns.
