- Contract with EMPORIO ARMANI and ADDIDAS….Exclusive contract with TOPTEC and NORTH FACE. While the textile industry is on the downhill due to sluggish domestic demand and exports, there are mid-sized and small-sized companies that win and win with global luxury companies' love calls for innovative materials development. ATKO planning, which developed recycled leather for both design and environment, and TOPTEC which introduced egg shell-like Nano membranes to outdoor materials, are representative. EMPORIO ARMANI has been selling women's shopper bags with ATKO planning’s recycled leather in worldwide since February this year. The new product is a shopping bag embossed with EMPORIO ARMANI’s logo and is similar to the original artificial leather shopping bag design. The regenerated leather of ATKO planning is hardly different from the natural leather because it utilized the dry regenerating method that is made of existing leather products in the form of fibers and applied temperature, moisture, and pressure for a certain time. It is hard to recognize the difference between them. Also, ADDIDAS’ upcoming sneakers, made of the world’s first recycled leather yarn, is ATKO planning’s product. ATKO planning developed a fabric woven from the recycled leather yarn last year and will supply it to ADIDAS later this year. Regenerated leather thread fabric has the advantages of leather, such as heat retention, flame retardancy, and shock absorption, while being 30% lighter than existing leather seats. As luxury companies applied ATKO planning’s recycled leather to their products, famous brands such as Tommy Hilfiger and Kevin Klein decided to use recycled leather on bags and shoes. In Korea, Global Outdoor Brand named ‘NORTH FACE’ found first about the Nano membrane (thin film made of nanofibers) applied to the Air Queen's sanitary pad, known as “Hani’s Sanitary pad.” NORTH FACE unveiled nano-fabric 'Future Light' at CES 2019, the world's largest electronics exhibition in January this year. Future Light has been building a global atheletic team of world-class climbers and skiers for the past two years, including Himalayan Everest and Cho Oyu, etc. NORTH FACE explains that it has proved perfect waterproof and breathable through extensive field tests in various environments. The innovative material used in this future light is Nano Membrane, exclusively supplied by TOPTEC. NORTH FACE has signed an exclusive supply contract with Toptec for three years until 2021 and is seeking further contracts. Kim Ji-on, CEO of ATKO planning, said, "I was glad to see that the hard-grown recycled leather was reborn as a luxury bag and displayed in a real store. We look forward to a quick social consensus in Korea that favors innovative and environmentally friendly materials and products."

A venture company specializing in leather recycling has developed a technology to extract leather fibers from leather waste and make them from recycled leather yarn. Kim Ji-on, CEO of eco-friendly venture incorporation ATKO Planning, successfully produced "regenerated leather thread(ATKO 4000)" with several attempts to develop related technologies to expand the use of recycling of leather waste. It is the first achievement of dry technology of using leather waste. Scraps of leather waste contains chromium, a heavy metal, and has been classified as specific industrial waste. Because of this, landfilling and incineration is impossible, and most of the disposal has been removed by ocean dumping, which is even prohibited under the London Convention. However, recycled leather yarn developed by ATKO planning is an eco-friendly material made of leather fibers, expected to be used in various fields since it can be re-recycled continuously and rarely bears the risk of secondary pollution in the soil. Currently, the trademark and patent application for ATKO 4000 has been completed, and development is being applied to sneakers or backpacks.   [Source:] ATKO planning, developed ‘Regenerated Leather Yarn’ with leather waste #recycledleather #atko #atkoleather #atkoplanning #leather #recycle #eco #textile #material #grs #yarn #regeneratedleatheryarn
