Preserving Our Oceans And Biodiversity
Our dyes are all eco-certified & packaging 100% biodegradable, produced using cassava starch. We offer you a low carbon footprint production cycle allowing you to rightfully claim that your brand & products are both environmentally friendly & sustainable.
We use DyStar & Huntsman Dyes, both producing a broad range of Eco-Friendly colourants, all OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 Certified, providing maximum consumer safety.
We pack each article individually into 100% biodegradable cassava bags produced by Avani that decompose 24 hours in any landfill.
REPREVE®, is a global leading, branded performance fibre made from recycled materials such as post-consumer waste and discarded plastic bottles.
REPREVE® is one of the world’s most loved softest fabrics.
We work primarily with REPREVE® for plain dyed colours as well as prints in both Poly & Nylon. The results are stunning deep organic & ultra bright tones. REPREVE® Hawaii is our most popular fabric for print requests.
Carvico, is the world’s largest manufacturer of plain-dyed swimwear fabrics. We work with their Vita & Renew ranges using both Polyester & Nylon yarns obtained from ECONYL® in Italy. Xtra Life Lycra is added to give stretch and flexibility, offering a soft hand feel with great body-enhancing properties.
Since 2016, Carvico and Jersey Lomellina has been producing eco-friendly fabrics made from salvaged fishing nets & post-consumer waste.
Together with fishing communities, they work towards reducing pollution caused by plastic bottles & fishing nets, finding environmentally sustainable and financially feasible ways of disposal.
ECONYL® – regenerated nylon & Polyester was introduced in 2011 by Aquafil, made entirely from ocean plastic & Ghost nets.
Every year, eight million tons of waste and 640 thousand tons of fishing nets end up in our oceans. (data sourced from UNEP & FAO). If the current level of dumping is not addressed, by 2050, our oceans could contain more garbage than fish.
ECONYL is added to Vita & RENEW plain-dyed fabrics
A ghost net is an abandoned, lost, or discarded fishing net.
Once discarded, they catch, entangle, and kill marine life, creating a vicious cycle that could last up to 5,000 years before breaking down.
Approximately 10% of ocean waste is made up of fishing nets.
