In amt. each material is carefully selected to guarantee the best performance and longevity of the product. We design respecting the planet working with materials with sustainable properties.
Generally, recycled cotton comes from waste yarns and fabrics from factories and workshops, as well as from post-consumer garments. Although they are more difficult to recycle since they are often mixed with other fabrics.
Because this fabric is made from virgin cotton waste, it reduces textile waste and does not require soil, water, pesticides or herbicides to be produced.
It has the same properties as conventional cotton. It's a soft, breathable fabric that's appropriate for sensitive skin. We save water, energy, and reduce and minimise the generation of CO2 waste by using recycled cotton instead of conventional cotton.
Organic cotton is grown according to internationally recognized organic farming standards. Organic cotton cultivation eliminates the use of pesticides, herbicides, and chemical fertilizers, as well as genetically modified seeds. Crop rotation regenerates the soil without artificial fertilizers.
Aside from reducing environmental impact, their cultivation increases the health and safety of workers by eliminating the exposure to toxic products that harm them.
Organic cotton is softer and has antibacterial properties that help make it suitable for sensitive skin. It is also entirely biodegradable. Using organic cotton improves working conditions for workers, prevents water pollution, and strengthens soil.
A recycled polyester fiber can be made from industrial polyester waste, PET bottles, or finished garments.
We prevent the production of new materials and their disposal by reusing these materials. PET is recovered from seas and landfills where it would take hundreds of years to disappear.
In comparison with virgin polyester, this process uses less water and does not require new oil, as well as reducing CO2 emissions by 75%.
In terms of its properties, recycled polyester maintains its strength, durability, and performance that characterize the fabric. This change allows us to achieve the same characteristics, but with a lower environmental impact, and contribute to the reduction of plastic waste.
fabrics are made of high-quality polyester yarn made from recycled materials that include post-consumer plastic bottles and plastic captured from the sea, so they help preserve natural resources and keep the oceans cleaner. Seaqual initiative is a community of individuals, organizations and companies working together to help clean our oceans, raise awareness of the issue of marine litter and highlight those helping to fight it.
Through the collaboration of 165 fishing boats, volunteers, and NGOs, plastic is recovered from beaches and seas to be used in the production of Seaqual.
In order to produce this fabric, only premium yarns are used, and high standards are followed when selecting the PET to be used.
Seaqual fibre utilizes less water, energy, and CO2 emissions than conventional polyester, as well as partnering with the cleaning of seas and beaches.
Tencel / Lyocell
, a trademarked brand of Tencel, is a cellulosic fiber manufactured from the pulp of trees from sustainable agriculture. Most commonly, it is made from Eucalyptus trees. It is considered to be the most sustainable cellulosic material. Almost all the solvents (of organic origin) are recycled or re-used in its production, making it completely biodegradable.
Since it can be continuously recycled, it reduces waste disposal, promotes the circular economy, and saves energy, water, and CO2. It is characterized by its softness, lightness, fluidity and breathability, maintaining a very pleasant texture to the skin.
Is a good alternative to cotton, is more durable, doesn't wrinkle or shrink during washing, and is very easy to care for. It is an excellent fiber for hypoallergenic people. It offers optimum moisture transportation for your skin´s well-being.
Typically, this wool is made from virgin wool leftovers or from post-consumer woollen garments. The process reduces water consumption, reduces land use for grazing, and avoids the use of chemicals for dyeing. It also allows woolen garments to avoid being thrown away.
This fabric is soft and skin-friendly, giving you the same warmth that you would find in a virgin woolen garment.
This viscose fiber from Lenzing Ecovero
is made from sustainable and removable resources of wood and cellulose from certified and controlled sources. Provided by responsibly managed forests.
During its life cycle it meets high environmental standards, certified with the EU Ecolabel, meeting high environmental standards throughout its production, distribution, and disposal cycles.
Its softness, lightness, and fluidity make it comparable to silk. It also regulates body temperature and humidity, and is biodegradable, decomposing naturally.
The traceability throughout the supply chain of Ecovero guarantees its sustainability as an environmentally friendly material. Its production generates up to 50% less emissions and impact on water resources compared to ordinary viscose.
Our buttons are all biodegradable, recycled, ecofriendly, use less energy, conserve water, and are made out of organic cotton, recycled polyester, recycled paper, coconut, wood, and recycled wood.
