It doesn’t take much convincing to shop for Prada.  


Prada is ultra-luxurious and equally iconic. Particularly its Tessuto nylon. This material, even decades after its inception, is in high demand and keeps Prada handbags and accessories at the forefront of luxury. Tessuto nylon is fashion-forward, long-lasting, durable, and with the growing popularity of athleisure, is also a material that’s easy to style and maintain as an everyday essential. Due to the latest market trends, it comes as no surprise that Prada is still basking in its Y2K glory (among other ‘It’ bags of the early aughts), with re-editions served practically every season. 

But the hype doesn’t stop at nylon. Re-Nylon, if you don’t already know about it, is one of the most-wanted and radically sustainable textiles in the luxury market – better yet, it doesn’t sacrifice quality or function. So to all the Tessuto nylon lovers out there, here is everything you need to know about Prada Re-Nylon, why it’s worth buying, and how it contributes to sustainability. 

Reasons To Buy Prada Re-Nylon

Prada Re-Nylon is sustainable, no doubt. But there are reasons beyond just “sustainable” that make Re-Nylon handbags and accessories truly revolutionary and, of course, worth every penny.

1 Prada Re-Nylon Celebrates The Brand’s Most Recognizable Signifier 

That is Tessuto nylon, of course. Thanks to Miuccia Prada, nylon became a signature for Prada starting in the late 1970s with the release of its first Tessuto nylon backpack. Now, decades later, Re-Nylon has entered the equation, becoming a sustainable alternative (and a leather alternative no doubt). With Re-Nylon, you get to enjoy what makes Prada so iconic while at the same time investing in groundbreaking and sustainable technology that offers a range of products made to last multiple lifetimes. 

2 Re-Nylon Is Kinder To The Planet 

Re-Nylon is crafted of regenerated nylon, hence made entirely of recycled materials. This means plastic waste is sourced from the ocean, fishing nets, and landfills to make new fibers. The result? An entirely new material that positively impacts the health and wellbeing of our planet. Through a tried and true unique process, Prada incorporates ECONYL yarn which reduces global warming by 90% compared to the production of regular nylon.

3 Prada Re-Nylon Doesn’t Sacrifice Quality 

Not only does the Re-Nylon collection support circularity, but it is also growing and making waves in the industry. Repurposing materials to be recycled and reused over and over is a hard thing to do, but Prada has proven that to be possible, without sacrificing quality. Advancements like these change how the industry prioritizes sustainable initiatives. With Prada’s Re-Nylon, you won’t ever have to worry about your items losing value because they’re just as long-lasting as Tessuto, and iconic in their own way.
