WHAT ARE THEY? WHAT USE CAN YOU HAVE?
Over time, the rhythms of life take on more and more incessant tones. Everything is synonymous with speed, those who fall behind are lost. This happens in the private sphere as well as in the world economic and commercial sectors.
In the fashion sector, for example, which is what interests us most, many brands set their own production and sales strategy on always proposing, in record time, continuous answers to customers’ growing demand for purchases.
This rapid and non-stop production cycle causes products to be launched on the market, at low cost, but not always of quality and unfortunately decidedly impacting on the environment, making the fashion sector one of the main causes of global pollution.
In this sense, the many associations for the protection of the environment have aimed at raising awareness about customers and brands, at relaunching ethical fashion and have understood that all this can be followed up also thanks to the applications of technological innovations in fashion.
Innovative yarns for an ethical and compatible fashion
Starting from the assumption that not all fabrics are always ecological, many experts in the sector and therefore many brands have exploited a series of totally biodegradable yarns to give life to equally natural fabrics.
Orange Fiber, of which we have already spoken also in other articles, from 2014 produces fabrics starting from the waste of the processing of oranges.
Soybean Protein Farm, on the other hand, thanks to a polymerization process, is able to transform post-oiling soy into a quality fabric that is soft, shiny and very versatile. Furthermore, the wastes of these fabrics will not be wasted but, being 100% natural, they will be used as feed.
Crabyon, in turn, exploits the scraps of crustaceans that, mixed with wool or cotton, give life to an ecological fabric, permeable to air but not to humidity. This fiber does not allow dehydration and protects from allergies and for these reasons it is also used for the production of underwear, mattresses or medical fabrics.
Corn Fiber instead uses the sugars of the corn and from that point starts with the formation of a shiny, soft fabric, resistant to heat and UV rays even if a little delicate.
Newcell Fiber, for its part, exploits the pulp of fabrics with a lot of cellulose to make as many tissues without chemical substances, resistant and with a high rate of color absorbency. The first dress designed with a fabric of this type showed in 2014 at the Fashion Festival in Sweden.
Finally, Bionic Yarn starts from a fiber of recycled plastic, then wrapped in layers of polyester, to form an ecological and resistant fabric. The versatility and robustness of this yarn makes it highly appreciated by many brands in the sector, which use it to become part of the sphere of an ethical fashion that, embracing technological fashion innovation, is aimed at protecting the environment .
Remember: to reduce the environmental impact to zero it is not enough just to choose natural raw materials but also use them during the production process in an environmentally friendly manner.
Choose the products of the brands that adopt these working methods and the planet will be grateful to you!
