Swiss Textile Pioneers Säntis Textiles Bring Recycling Expertise to PCIAW®

The PCIAW® is delighted to welcome Säntis Textiles as a new Trusted Member. This pioneering family-owned company, founded in 2005, carries a rich generational legacy of Swiss engineering and textile innovation.

Säntis Textiles is a family-owned company founded in 2005 and rooted in a generational legacy of Swiss engineering and textile innovation.

Headquartered in Singapore, founder Stefan Hutter conceptualised Säntis Textiles from his 40-plus years as a textile manufacturing engineer, with a mission to specialise in innovative materials in the form of fibre, yarn, and fabric for the global garment and technical textile market.

With his extensive background in textile machine engineering, Stefan Hutter began his recycled cotton journey in 2016 by inventing the RCO100™ technology and machine. Guided by a persistently evolving vision, his daughter Annabelle Hutter collaborated with her dad to escalate RCO100™ Fiber Friendy Textile Recycling to an international standard. By the end of 2018, Säntis Textiles successfully spun open-end yarns up to Ne20 using 100% pre-consumer industrial waste.

Säntis Textiles has the ambition to create an authentic and inspired recycled textile experience from fibre to fashion through inclusive technical consultation and product innovation without sacrificing creativity, authenticity, and transparency.

With a strong history in circular textiles development, Säntis Textiles is set to revolutionise recycled textiles with their unique Swiss-engineered approach. PCIAW® is excited to welcome this visionary company, and we look forward to their valuable contributions to advancing sustainable practices and innovative material solutions within our global community.
