Sustainable Materials

"We go further to work with the environment—not against it—to create outstanding environmentally friendly products."

We offer a wide range of sustainable materials that provide environmental, social and economic benefits throughout an entire product's lifecycle—from the extraction of raw materials to final disposal.

Customers aiming to maximize the protection of consumer health and the environment can consider the following sustainable materials:

 

 

Bamboo

Bamboo is hypoallergenic, absorbent, fast drying and naturally anti-bacterial, while both extremely durable and soft as silk at half the price. It grows quickly at 10 times the yield of cotton with less input of water pesticides and fertilizers.

 

Coconut Palm

Coconut palms grow rapidly, producing fruit after only 5-6 years, and only the oldest trees are harvested. Their wood is also cheaper than many other products available, such as mahogany and other types of heavy woods.

 

Cork

Cork is extracted without permanently harming the tree, there are many hectares of cork in the world, which makes it an abundant resource that will regenerate far faster than humans can use it. Due to its softness and bounce-back, cork is good at slip resistant.

 

Cocoon

Cocoons are very light yet tough composites known for their fine, smooth and elastic properties. They are also non-perishable and climate-smart agricultural products with no need for chemical-based synthetic processing.

 

Hemp

Hemp is warm, breathable, pest-tolerant and easy to grow, producing much more fiber per square meter and less water input than cotton. Its rich and supple texture gives tremendous durability, strength and versatility.

 

PET Plastic

PET plastic is an environmentally friendlier way to give fabrics a soft, smooth look and feel. while reducing the demand for non-renewable fossil fuels used to source the raw materials for normal plastic production.

 

Organic Cotton

Organic cotton is softer, more breathable and higher quality than non-organic cotton. It is grown GMO-free without the use of chlorine bleach, synthetic dyes or any synthetic agricultural chemicals.

 

Recycled Polyester

Recycled polyester offers excellent quality for less energy than required by virgin polyester. The recycled material preserves the virgin oil needed to manufacture new fibers and is without limitation in its application.

 

Recycled Glass

Glass can be recycled indefinitely without loss in quality or purity, reducing related air and water pollution required to manufacture new glass.

 

Vegetal-Tanned Leather

Vegetal-tanned leather is non-allergenic and is made without the use of heavy metals found in chrome-tanned leather. Vegetal-tanned leather reduces water pollution and offers natural, earth tone colors that can then be dyed.

 

Soy-based ink

Soy-based inks are able to produce brighter, more vibrant colors using less ink and fertilizers than petroleum-based inks, making them a more cost-effective ink solution. Soy inks can also be removed more easily for recycling.

 

Water-based ink

Water-based Inks do not contain PVC or phthalates and do not require solvents for cleaning equipment. They contain fewer oil-based chemicals and are less harmful, making them safe for use with underwear, swimwear and baby clothes.
