NATURE IS OUR MUSE, OUR MOTHER.
We learn from it, we move with it, we are part of it. Its beauty inspires us to create conscious garments born to be adventurous.
It all starts with making mindful choices when it comes to hand-picking our raw materials and suppliers.
We mainly use certified regenerated polyester. We partner with companies who recycle discarded plastic bottles, turn them into PET chips and spin them into yarns that later become high quality fabrics.
Using regenerated polyester reduces our dependence on nonrenewable resources (petroleum) and allows us to give a second life to non-biodegradable PET waste, diverting it from ending up in landfill sites or into the ocean. In this way, we are able to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 30%, water consumption by 20% and energy consumption by up to 60%.
LUCYLUX is a regenerated polyester
and elastane interlock fabric, stretchy, solid and durable with a wonderful premium soft touch.
ARTE SOFT is a melange fabric extraordinary for its extra soft hand-feel. It is composed of 47% recycled polyester, 47% normal polyester and 6% elastane. Arte Soft is not dyed but knitted with colored yarns.
FOR OUR PRINTS we only use digital printing machines able to produce high resolution images using less water and chemicals. We also make sure the inks we use are non-toxic and safe for the skin.
AMNI SOUL ECO®
Our new entry in terms of eco-conscious materials is Amni Soul Eco®, a revolutionary biodegradable polyamide, incredible for its strength and durability, yet able to completely decompose leaving no plastic waste behind.
Amni Soul Eco® is a polyamide yarn that contains a formulation of additives able to confer the property of enhanced biodegradability. This means it is a strong and durable material that can be used for any type of garment (outerwear, swimsuits, lingerie, activewear, etc.), with all the characteristics of polyamide (aka nylon) but with the capability to biodegrade.
Amni Soul Eco®, is the first biodegradable polyamide yarn in the world. Its improved formula allows all clothes made with this innovative technology to quickly decompose after being properly disposed of in landfill sites. Unlike other fibers that take decades to decompose, Amni Soul Eco® takes approximately five years to biodegrade and disappear from the planet.
THE DETAILS AND ACCESSORIES that we use for our outerwear are made of biodegradable bioplastic from food waste.
What about waste minimization?
Our pieces are produced in small batches, growing with our customer base, to avoid unsold items becoming textile waste.
We are creative with our fabric scraps.
We keep our fabric cuttings, samples
and defected items and turn them into trims and accessories for our next creations.
For those small parts that we cannot make with recycled or biodegradable materials yet, we search for good quality deadstock fabrics.
