The sustainable clothing does not only refer to the use of waste materials with juicers on the show, or the design of degradable paper clothing. Its general urgency does not stand in one link, nor is it limited to one aspect. It is not only a "highlight" in pursuit of low carbon emissions, but runs through the use of materials, design methods, production processes, operation management, and wearing functions. And then to convenient and low-consumption care, waste recycling and other aspects.
Each point must meet the requirements of ecological and environmental protection, and reduce the load on the environment as much as possible. In summary, "green and pollution-free, emission reduction, energy saving, comfort and safety, and recycling" are the most omni-directional, multi-faceted, and most essential concept of sustainable clothing.
From unsustainable manufacturing methods to plastic waste flooding the ocean, the fashion industry is the world's second largest environmental pollution producer after the petrochemical industry.
The textile industry emits 1.2 billion tons of greenhouse gases each year, accounting for 10% of the total global emissions. Textile fiber, yarn, and fabric manufacturers are the main emitters of greenhouse gases in the fashion industry. According to statistics, 34% of the microplastics found in the ocean come from the textile and clothing industries, most of which are made of polyester, polyethylene, acrylic and elastic fibers.
Best-known world class recycled fiber, made from plastic bottles. REPREVE balanced new petroleum, emitting less carbon and effectively use water and energy in the process. It’s traceable with authorized certification.
Aquafil took 4 years to recycle discarded fishing nets, fabric waste, carpets and industrial waste, or marine garbage and waste plastics from landfills. This new type of recycled nylon yarn has passed the LEED certification
Provides better comfort and better fit, the finished product is more flexible and better recovery, making people very comfortable to wear and prolonged the life espan of each piece of clothing.
No chemical fertilizers and pesticides are used in the organic cotton planting. It has its own color and does not need to be printed and dyed, which avoids printing and dyeing pollution. The content of toxic and harmful substances is controlled.
Tencel fabric is made of eucalyptus wood pulp in a closed physical production. It is dissolved and spun in ammonium oxide solvent, which can be recycled. There is no discharge of waste water and waste gas in process. Tencel and its products can be biodegraded.
There are 160,000 tons of oyster shells waste in Taiwan each year. Chengjia Kefang has nano-sized oyster shells into powder, combining natural calcium carbonate plus trace metal elements, and recycled PET to produce sea wool yarn, selling world widely.
SORONA® fiber core PDO is derived from plant starch glucose, not petroleum, and uses 37% plant-based raw materials. Compared with nylon 6, the production of SORONA® fiber reduces petroleum resources by 37% and reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 63%.
Coconut shells, shells, bamboo, and fruits are used as buttons. Multifunctional and practical accessories inject value into the clothing, and also add adaptability and joy. The natural coconut shell and bamboo have a healing effect on the senses, highlighting the original appearance and bringing comfort to consumers.
The sustainable pearl shell and recycled shell composite materials create a natural sense of irregularity. The materials, emphasizing sand deposition and sea baptism, have natural flaws and beauty.Soothing colors and tranquil touch are light accessories to trace and heal emotions, forming a natural structure of modern style.
Color is a key element of fashion fashion, but industrial printing and dyeing needs to consume a lot of chemical dyes, auxiliaries and water resources, resulting in the emission and residue of harmful substances, which affects the ecological environment and the health of clothing.
OEKO-TEX 100 mill
OEKO-TEX Standard 100 is now the most widely used textile eco-mark. The OEKO-TEX Standard 100 stipulates a standard based on the latest scientific knowledge to set limits on the content of harmful substances in yarns, fibers and various textiles. The test includes PH value, formaldehyde, extractable heavy metals, nickel, pesticides/herbicides, chlorinated phenols, cleavable aromatic amine dyes, allergenic dyes, organic chlorinated dyestuffs, organic tin compounds (TBT/DBT), PVC plasticizer, color fastness, organic volatile gas, smell.
Compared with the traditional printing process, digital printing shortens the production process and time by reducing the consumption of screen-making labor, space and printing screen. Meanwhile it greatly reduces the consumption of dyes and dyeing waste water. Moreover, the pattern design is not restricted by the printing process, and is very suitable for the needs of small batches, multiple changes, and fast fashion. In recent years, digital printing has also become one of the high-profile focal points on the runway.
In 1998, researchers found a plastic bag in the Mariana Trench, which was 10,898 meters deep. This was one of 3,000+ deep-sea garbage fragments discovered in the past 30 years. In 2017, JAMSTEC's global ocean data center opened the deep-sea garbage database to the public. Among the deep-sea garbage debris found so far, more than one-third are large pieces of plastic, and 89% are disposable product waste.
At a depth of 6,000 meters, more than half of the garbage debris is plastic, and almost all are disposable items. Diving in the deep ocean, plastic waste can exist for thousands of years. Reducing the generation of plastic waste is the only way to solve the problem of deep-sea plastic pollution.
Biodegradable Garment Bag
PBAT+PLA raw materials, NO PE, environmentally friendly ink printing. Passed American BPI certification and German DIN CERTCO certification. Tested under European EN 13432, American ASTM D 6400 and Australian AS4736 standard conditions.
Imported PLA raw materials, NO PE. It’s 100% compostable being buried in the ground through microbial degradation. Therefore reduce the negative impact on the environment. It completely degraded within 90 days in industrial compost. And in the natural environment it is completely degraded within 2-4 years. Certified by American BPI, Germany DIN CERTCO.
The concept of sustainable development is embodied in a series of processes of clothing production, which is to reduce the discharge of noise, waste water. We always strengthen scientific management in production, making the best use of materials, and guide green production. We aim to reduce blind production and truly achieve less and more precision.
In the process of clothing sales, publicity for clothing products is a must. Publicity spread mainly through various online media such as the web, platform, social media, very limited to newspapers and magazines. By doing so, we automatically save papers and heavy transportation energy waste.
