PRADA RE-NYLON: FIFTH EPISODE
The fifth and final step of the series What We Carry, is set in Ljubljana, Slovenia, a country that has become a hub of a new regenerative and sustainable industry, with 40,000 tons of material recycled annually. Prada reporter Amanda Gorman - the inaugural US Youth Poet Laureate - and the engineer and architect Arthur Huang, a trailblazer and National Geographic Explorer, bring us in the production plant for ECONYL®, alongside Giulio Bonazzi, Chairman and CEO of Aquafil. Here, tons of collected waste are transformed into pristine, pioneering new ECONYL® yarn, because of intricate chemical recycling process of depolymerisation.
