Ambercycle, a leading innovator of circular materials, is partnering with Danish affordable luxury brand GANNI, through its ‘Fabrics of the Future’ initiative. The initiative, which supports GANNI’s carbon reduction goals and pioneering approach to responsible fashion, is introducing cycora®, a textile-to-textile recycled material, into its ‘Fabrics of the Future’ initiative.

With a shared focus on textile-to-textile recycling in fashion, the partnership kicks off with the launch of a women’s sports jersey t-shirt crafted from cycora® material as part of the GANNI SPORT collection. The t-shirt is partially made from post-consumer waste and showcases how materials of the future can unlock and elevate functionality in activewear. (available now on

“Since 2019, we have been working hard to move away from conventional materials and switch to better alternatives,” said Lauren Bartley, Sustainability & CSR Director, GANNI. “Investing in innovative low-carbon materials is crucial to making fashion more responsible, and partnering with Ambercycle brings us one step closer to that ambition. Ambercycle is one of the front runners for recycling post-consumer waste within polyester fibers — which is also one of the reasons why we choose to support and partner with Ambercycle through our ‘Fabrics of The Future’ initiative.”

GANNI and Ambercycle have united with a shared commitment to recycle post-consumer waste and minimize the environmental impact associated with material production. The partnership enables GANNI to engage in textile-to-textile recycling for synthetic fibers and post-consumer waste. 

“GANNI’s comprehensive approach to responsible brand-building is completely aligned with our vision for the future of fashion. Our collective aim is to bring circular products to market quickly and drive systemic change urgently needed in the fashion industry. This partnership marks a pivotal step in our journey to scaling the production and widespread adoption of circular materials,” said Shay Sethi, Ambercycle’s co-founder and CEO

GANNI intends to use cycora® in future styles and collections as part of its goals to reduce its carbon footprint by 50% by 2027 and have 10% of materials come from ‘Fabrics of The Future’ by 2025.
