AFTER 12 YEARS OF R&D IN RECYCLED FABRICS, ECOALF HAS DECIDED TO LAUNCH A TIMELESS, SUSTAINABLE, PREMIUM LINE: ECOALF 1.0. THE LINE MERGES MINIMALIST FORMS AND NEUTRAL COLORS WITH TECHNICAL, FILAMENTS THAT HAVE THE LOWEST ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ON THE MARKET.
The line only includes the most essential items to curate a selective wardrobe that an individual can add a piece to each season which is unique to that collection but cohesive with the garments from previous collections due to their clean and timeless design. Every step in the process is done consciously and deliberately to maximize our resources.
1.0 IS UNLIMITED WHEN IT COMES TO THE LATEST INNOVATION.
Each season we want to support our Upcycling the Oceans project; that is why one of the primary materials of this line is our Ocean Yarn, made from plastic bottles recovered from the bottom of the ocean through the one-of-a-kind project.
Other innovative materials in this line include our vegan leather, combining grape waste and vegetable oil for a sleek, slip-on shoe, and organic Kapok, a natural cellulose fiber found in the dried fruit of the kapok tree to provide a soft, silky fiber that saves 375 liters of water per shirt. As an alternative to conventional synthetic yarns, the line incorporates biopolymer yarns such as Sorona® which utilize corn crops’ waste to use less fossil fuels and give the garment a technical look.
THE LATEST SUSTAINABLE FABRIC INNOVATIONS
This sustainable, premium line is not only about fashion, it’s about a lifestyle, the brand’s conviction and core vision. It is born to reshape not only our way of dressing, but also our way of living by merging the latest innovations in sustainability with neutral colors and minimalist forms that you can wear today, tomorrow and for the many years to come.
Our Ocean Yarn is spun from recycled plastic bottles collected from the bottom of the ocean through the Upcycling the Oceans project which unites more than 3,000 fishermen across Spain, Greece, and Italy, and has collected more than 700 tonnes of waste.
This material, which has the look and feel of leather, is composed of a layer of grape skin merged with natural oils to a layer of recycled polyester for a sleek vegan leather.
Sorona® is made with 37% corn waste (plant-based materials) to maximize our resources and provide a technical, water-resistant fabric with a two-way stretch.
Kapok is a type of fruit, and the organic fiber we use in our fabrics comes from both the fruit and the tree itself. It is a soft, silky fiber that is mixed with organic cotton to save roughly 375 liters of water per T-shirt.
