As the fashion industry seeks to continuously provide innovative designs, Velcro Companies collaborated with Inditex to create a jacket, under the ZARA brand, using a single material produced from 100% recycled textiles.
The jacket features VELCRO® Brand hook and loop fasteners made with loopamid®. Made by BASF, loopamid® is the first Polyamide 6 (PA6) nylon composed entirely from recycled textiles.
The VELCRO® Brand hook and loop closure can be opened and closed thousands of times, providing a reliable layer of protection from harsh weather conditions.
Based in Arteixo A Coruña, Spain, Inditex is a global leader in fashion design and manufacturing.
