Patagonia has signed a multi-year supply agreement with Infinited Fiber Company, a Finnish circular fashion and textile biotechnology company, to guarantee access to its regenerated textile fiber, called Infinna. The virgin-quality fiber comes with the soft and natural look and feel of cotton. It is made from cotton-rich textile waste that is broken down at the molecular level and reborn as new fibers. Because it is made from cellulose, Infinna is biodegradable and contains no microplastics. Garments made with it can be recycled along with other textile waste in the same process. For the Finnish company, which is only five years old, the deal with Patagonia is the first sales agreement to have been announced for Infinited’s planned new €220 million flagship factory in Finland, which will be capable of producing 30,000 tons of the chemically recycled fiber per year.
