RESPONSIBLE FIBERS The natural, recycled and high-tech fibers in our eco collection.
Recycled Nylon: Nylon is made from petroleum, a nonrenewable resource. Recycled nylon can repurpose many forms of post-industrial waste, notably fishing nets, which are hazardous to marine ecosystems.
Recycled Polyester: Since 2009 we have sourced recycled polyester made from water bottles, discarded garments and other forms of postconsumer waste. Recycled polyester requires far less energy than virgin polyester, which is a petroleum product. And it has a lower environmental impact than silk or chiffon, two natural fabrics it easily mimics.
Recycled and Reclaimed Cotton: Spun from garments or cutting room scraps, recycled and reclaimed cotton yarns have a speckly, mélanged effect. Their environmental advantage: They eliminate farming, harvesting and ginning, reducing both energy and transportation needs.
