Faytex Corp. announced an exciting new business opportunity that will help accelerate the development of environmentally friendly footwear and apparel by incorporating REPREVE recycled fibers into the Dri-lex Eco fabric line.


Dri-lex is the original synthetic moisture management system from Faytex and an industry leader in functional and fashionable performance fabrics.

This business opportunity will allow us to extend the reach of our Dri-lex Eco program, which we launched about two and a half years ago, said Faytex vice president, Cindy Fay Stangl.
 One of the benefits of working with REPREVE is the transparency associated with the family of fibers. Through Unifi's U Trust verification program the company can actually test and analyze the recycled content through the unique  fiberprint technology, which is very important to Faytex so that our customers can always trust what they are getting.

We continue to see significant growth in this aspect of our business and look forward to a very bright future with Unifi and its REPREVE branded products,
Stangl added.

We are excited to be working with Faytex, said Roger Berrier, executive vice president for Unifi.
With a growing emphasis on sustainable products in today's global market, the Dri-lex Eco product offering now provides consumers with new sustainable options for the footwear market.


The Dri-lex Eco products made with REPREVE are now available in a wide range of colors and options.
