Laxaþjóð | A Salmon Nation

Our relationship with nature not only defines our history, it shapes our future, too. Yet beneath the surface of Iceland’s fjords, an industrial fish farming method threatens to destroy one of Europe’s last remaining wildernesses. Laxaþjóð | A Salmon Nation tells the story of a country united by its lands and waters, and the power of a community to protect the wild places and animals that helped forge its identity.

Elastane

Elastane provides significant strength and elasticity and is fast drying.

Why

Elastane, also known as Lycra®, is an elastic polymer (a type of plastic) first invented by DuPont in 1958. Elastane makes garments and trims stretchy, which allows for them to be form fitting, and provide freedom of movement.

Where We Are

Elastane is a critical ingredient in our products. We have recently experimented with pre-consumer recycled versions (using scraps from elastane that has already been made) in our garments, but it will likely be one of our last materials to be completely converted to a non-virgin source. Although critical to the performance of our final products, elastane is a material we use the least when compared to all our other materials; think of a jacket with stretch—the elastane may be 8% or 9% of the total fabric package. Instead, we’re focusing on making big moves to convert heavily used fabrics (like cotton, nylon and polyester) to recycled, first.

What’s Next

We are actively looking for elastane alternatives that help provide function and are recyclable. We are investigating non-virgin sources for elastane, including recycled and bio-based versions, and we’re exploring bio-based alternatives and new polymers that are less impactful.
