CRADLE TO CRADLE CERTIFIEDTM GOLD or RECYCLED.
AMANN's sustainable sewing and embroidery threads

AMANN develops products in a targeted manner in order to make them not only more sustainable, but also more environmentally friendly through the use of selected recycling and natural materials. Now, AMANN is even breaking new ground with the Cradle to Cradle certification. Cradle to Cradle™, stands for a consistent, continuous recycling management, where no waste is generated, as the Cradle to Cradle® products are either used as biological nutrients in biological cycles, or they are continuously kept in technical cycles as technical nutrients. We are proud that we can already offer our customers the first CRADLE TO CRADLE CERTIFIEDTM GOLD sewing thread from the LIFECYCLE line! Further products in the LIFECYCLE line will follow to enable our customers to have circular technical or biological material flows. Our sewing and embroidery threads from the RECYCLED line are made from 100% high-quality recycled materials and have almost the same quality features as our excellent range products, for instance in terms of breaking strength, abrasion resistance and sewability.

The finish of our sewing threads is also systematically optimised. For example, in the production of water-repellent sewing threads, we replace environmentally harmful perfluorocarbons (PFCs) with environmentally compatible alternatives. The new eco-friendly WRe finish is available for Saba WReSerafil WRe, and Onyx WRe. As a globally operating company, AMANN also focuses on sustainable, fair and safe production processes worldwide. We have joined the UN Global Compact and certify our production sites according to the Global Recycle Standard.

AMANN’s sustainable product range

Our sustainable product range consists of the RECYCLED line and the LIFECYCLE line. All products from the LIFECYCLE line are CRADLE TO CRADLE CERTIFIEDTM GOLD and they can be completely reprocessed. The AMANN sewing and embroidery threads from the RECYCLED line are made from 100% recycled materials.

THE CRADLE TO CRADLE CERTIFIEDTM GOLD CERTIFICATE IS OUR INCENTIVE FOR FUTURE PRODUCT DEVELOPMENTS

AMANN product line LIFECYCLE –
CRADLE TO CRADLE CERTIFIEDTM GOLD

Every year, approximately 92 million tons of textile waste are generated worldwide (source: Global Fashion Agenda & the Boston Consulting Group 2019). To counteract the global textile waste and to fulfill our responsibility towards the environment, we develop the yarns of our LIFECYCLE line based on the principle of a consistent, continuous recycling management, also known as Cradle to Cradle®. Cradle to Cradle® products are either returned to biological cycles as biological nutrients or continuously kept in technical cycles as technical nutrients, consequently no waste is produced! Therefore, AMANN LIFECYCLE sewing threads can either be 100% composted or 100% reprocessed. This resource-saving process not only has a positive effect on the environment, but also on the product quality. All LIFECYCLE products are CRADLE TO CRADLE CERTIFIEDTM GOLD.
