OUR FABRICS

THE BASICS

Our “basics range” and all our linings are carefully crafted using the best quality, luxury and sustainable Italian polyamide made from ECONYL® yarn.

ECONYL® is a 100% regenerated nylon yarn derived from industrial waste such as discarded fishing nets and other ocean pollutants which ultimately endanger sea life.

This recycled polyamide has the same features as virgin nylon in terms of durability and quality: it is a very soft, two-way stretch material that enables a perfect fit, making all our designs very comfortable.

An OEKO-TEX® ® 100 Standard certified fabric offering UV protection, a longer lifespan and maximum comfort.

Simultaneously, the production of this recycled polyamide is also eco-friendly, as it is not being produced with non-renewable fossil fuels.


THE PRINTS

Every print in our SS 2020 collection combines the above mentioned polyamide with the best quality, locally sourced recycled polyester.

Recycled polyester comes from recovered PET bottles, industrial waste and even discarded clothing preventing it from ending up in landfills and therefore reaching our seas and oceans.

The production of this polyester reduces in 75% CO2 emissions compared to virgin polyester and it’s printing process is water-free and uses non-toxic eco-certified inks.
