ECOLOGICAL IMPACT OF FASHION
Do you know about the impact the textile industry causes to the environment? It is one of the most polluted industries in the world.The creation and process of the development of one single piece of cloth regards a lot of chemical processes impacting our environment.
For several years now the whole fashion industry has been trying to improve this process and with tiny changes but big consequences to “green up” the industry. A small change like the raw material obtaining, or the chemical process of dying a fabric can change the environmental footprint we are leaving into our planet.
Nowadays the offer of more sustainable and eco-friendly fashion products has increased, consumers are more informed and aware of the environmental effects this can have in our planet and the market has been introducing more and more eco-friendly materials that can be used as a replacement.
For example, Organic Cotton. Cotton is already a cellulose fabric made from natural resources but to improve their production, its quality and quantity it is used a lot of pesticides that are not good for our environment. Organic cotton is grown without any toxic or synthetic chemicals and usually presented in natural and raw colours avoiding also the dying chemical process.
Another common eco-friendly fabric is the Tencel, you can also find it under the name Lyocell; it is also a cellulose fabric, which means is also biodegradable and in addition is made within a closed loop process which do not include toxic chemicals, so almost 100% of the chemicals used in this process are recycled and sustainable. Creating an amazing sustainable and soft fabric with a texture similar to rayon.
In Analogias we work with the objective of creating something beautiful and harmless to the planet that mothers and daughters can share and enjoy. Taking this into account, we always select the best possible fabrics to work with,the ones that will give exclusivity, elegance and quality to all our pieces.On our FW 2017 collection we have declined to use Cupro fabric for the lining of all women outfits.We are pretty sure that "details matter" and to have a lining which is eco friendly with a silk touch will make that difference.
Cupro, comes from the cotton, most specifically the linter as it is the fiber that cover the cotton and its seeds; during the normal process of cotton obtaining this fiber is left behind and before was consider as disposable. Now the linter goes through a chemical and physical process that creates a powerful pure cellulose fiber. This is means that Cupro comes from a natural resource and is biodegradable, which means nature can easily transform it into soil that allows to grow more cotton and continue with the cycle.
