18 September 2021The Prada Re-Nylon Project
Prada’s trailblazing Re-Nylon project was launched as part of Selfridges Project Earth, an initiative which explores more sustainable ways to shop. This game-changing, sustainably crafted collection is created with ECONYL®, a synthetic nylon generated from recycled plastic, discarded fishing nets, and ocean and textile waste. Nylon’s been an integral part of Prada’s design DNA for decades (more on that below), so the move to recreate its most iconic pieces entirely from recycled material is a sure-fire sign that luxury fashion is changing for the better. What’s more, Prada has made an official commitment to convert all virgin nylon within its business to ECONYL® by the end of 2021.
