MUMBAI, INDIA/ISTANBUL, TURKEY: Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) has joined hands with Turkey’s textile behemoth, Kivanc Tekstil, to manufacture and market R|Elan GreenGold, a sustainable and innovative fabric 2.0, to leading apparel brands and consumers across the world.

Apart from manufacturing and marketing R|Elan GreenGold fabrics, Kivanc will be the exclusive distributor of Recron GreenGold fibres to spinners, yarn manufactures and knitters across Turkey.

The plan will enable RIL and Kivanc to offer the best quality eco-friendly textile solutions to brands and retailers, sourcing their requirements from Turkey, to meet the ever-growing demand of environment friendly apparels.

The manufacturing excellence of Kivanc will be further enhanced by the high quality GreenGold fibres, as well as by the support of RIL’s efficient technical team.

RIL, the owner of brand R|Elan, is one of the largest recycler of PET bottles in India, recycling 2.2 billion PET bottles a year. R|Elan GreenGold, made from recycled PET, substantially reduces emission of greenhouse gases. The fabric being made from pre-dyed fibres, its manufacture doesn’t need much water. Whatever little water is used, 90 percent of it is recycled. It uses bio-fuels and is one of the few recycled brands that provides end-to-end traceability throughout the supply chain, right from PET bottles to fibres.

“The partnership with Reliance Industries is a significant initiative in accomplishing our mission. The exclusive distributorship of Recron GreenGold fibres and yarns and being a manufacturer of R|Elan GreenGold fabrics will provide us immense growth opportunities. We are really thankful to Reliance, which has taken a stride forward and opened the doors in actualising our mission. Henceforth, most of the polyester blended fabrics will be made out of sustainable fibres at Kivanc,” said Ziya Kivanc, CEO, Kivanc Textil.

“It gives us immense pleasure to partner with the globally renowned Kivanc Tekstil. With RIL’s technological edge in sustainable offerings merging with Kivanc’s manufacturing prowess, we are certain to come up with stunning innovative fabrics to meet the growing demand for high-quality eco-friendly apparels,” added Gunjan Sharma, CMO – Polyester Division, Reliance.
