Sustainable fashion is the future

We are continuously working towards becoming a more sustainable company.

Sustainable fashion is one of our primary goals. While we have been in the sector for a long time, we are continuously working towards becoming a sustainable company. When it comes to finding the best for our customers, our business, our manufacturers, and the planet, there is no finish line. If you want to develop a sustainable brand, we have the right materials and factories to work with.

We use natural materials

Reducing and eliminating waste is one of our top priorities.

Organic Cotton

It takes an enormous amount of water and chemicals to produce traditional cotton, whereas organic cotton is grown from non-genetically modified plants, and harvested without any toxic pesticides, synthetic fertilisers, or genetically modified seeds.

EcoVero

The new and improved sustainable alternative to conventional viscose. EcoVero is made using sustainable wood from controlled sources which are either FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) or PEFC (Program for Endorsement of Forest Certification) certified in Europe, instead of bamboo or eucalyptus, commonly used in normal viscose production. More than 60 percent of the trees used to produce EcoVero fibers come from Austria and Bavaria, ensuring lower emissions.

Hemp fibres

With a texture lot like linen, this specific type of cannabis plant is fast growing, does not exhaust the soil and does not require pesticides. It creates a strong, durable fabric which doesn’t irritate your skin.

Coffee ground fibres

An important raw material that can be used in any type of wear. Taiwanese textile company Singtex’s technology combines the post-patented processed coffee ground with polymer to create master batches before spinning it into yarn. The resulting coffee yarn is multi-functional and can be used in a variety of products.

Orange Fiber

A substance made from citrus juice by-products, repurposing them to create silk-like cellulose fabric.

Mushroom Leather

A substance called Mycelium – which is essentially a mass of cells on the underground root structure of mushrooms – is grown in bulk with additional nutrients to form an interconnected 3D network of the cells. These are then compressed to form a 2D material and then tanned and dyed to form the final product, Mylo™, or mushroom leather.

Wine Leather

Vegea, an Italian brand that won a 2017 H&M Foundation Global Change Award, is creating luxurious leather using Grape waste materials – such as skins, seeds, and stalks – from the wine industry.

Pineapple Fiber 

The long fibres are extracted through a process called decortication, which is done at the plantation by the farming community. Ananas Anam has developed the first automated decorticating machine to assist with this process, allowing farmers to utilise greater quantities of their waste leaves. Once the leaves have been stripped of fibre the leftover biomass can be used as a nutrient-rich natural fertiliser or a biofuel, so nothing is wasted.The fibres then get degummed and undergo an industrial process to become a non-woven mesh, which forms the base of Piñatex®.

Linen

Vegan fabrics like linen are increasingly used in textile production. A material that becomes softer and more resistant as it is used and that can absorb 20% of its weight in humidity.

Seaweed

Seaweed undergoes a treatment process until that consists in drying the algae, introduce it into the cellulose fiber to then be transformed into different textile pieces.

Beech Tree Fiber

A semi-synthetic cellulose fiber, made exclusively from renewable beech fiber. These are classified as “natural synthetics”. It is easy to handle and easily dyed.

This is how the material produced from wood pulp is commonly called. Process chemicals are reused for their production, so it is biodegradable and recyclable.

Lyocell

Soy Fabric

 

Soy fabric, also known as vegetable cashmere, is a new ecological fabric, derived from a by-product of soy processing. It is soft, has the shine of silk, the durability of cotton and the comfort of cashmere.

Coconut Fiber

The fabric produced using coconut fiber is called Nullarbor. Its production requires little use of soil, water and energy resources.

Banana Fiber

The concern with the environment led to the search for ecologically sustainable solutions, all the way to the fiber removed from the banana peel that after undergoing various treatments is used in the production of textile parts.

Cactus leather

Those are just some examples of the long list of sustainable materials that we are able to work with. There are more incredible materials out there that are being discovered as sustainable materials alternatives as we speak. Contact us if you want to discover more materials and we assure to have the perfect one to develop your product.

Cactus leather is a vegan alternative from the traditional leather. It is made from cactus leaves, a raw material which grows in abundance with very little water. This material is made from Opuntia Cactus and has been developed in Mexico. Adrián López Velarde and Marte Cázarez are the inventors of the material and the founders of the company behind it – Desserto.
