Fruits, trees, coffee, eucalyptus - sounds like a pretty odd list of things, doesn’t it? You’d be surprised to find that all of the natural resources mentioned here have something in common: they are all solutions for a more sustainable & circular fashion industry, and a better tomorrow. With conscious collaborations to bridge the gap between fashion & other industries such as food, each of these materials is used to produce eco-friendly fibres that have a low carbon footprint.
Currently, more than 60% of the clothing in our industry is made up of polyester with toxic processes, and according to the World Bank, 20% of water pollution results from textile processing. Cotton and leather are two of the dirtiest materials in our wardrobes, using a vast range of pesticides, water & energy in production - so it is crucial for us to innovate to pave way for a more socially responsible industry.
