New fibers to reduce the impact of fashion

17 March 2019 By 12 Comments

Which is the impact of the clothing industry on our environment? We live in an era of fast fashion in which production and maintenance of our dress it requires a huge amount of water, energy and non-renewable resources.

Non-renewable fibers

Most of the common garments are now made of synthetic, especially polyester, nylon, acrylic and elastam which are a plastic compound: every times you wash these products, they release a large amount of tiny fibers, practically indestructible, that sooner or later will end up in the sea.

Sustainable fabrics

Cotton, linen, jute, hemp, agave, coconut, pineapple, broom, wool and silk are within the material derived from renewable sources, among these, also acetate, triacetate and viscose.  All of those are produced artificially starting from the cellulose of trees or its production’s waste.

Cotton and other natural fibers are degradable, but this doesn’t mean that are a greener choice especially if you consider the entire supply chain. Cotton production, for example, uses around 2.5% of the world’s arable land and a huge quantity of pesticides, fertilizers and water. Furthermore, cotton requires more energy than synthetic fibers to be processed.

Innovation in depth: the new fibers

DERMASILK

Particular “therapeutic” fabric in pure silk fibroin, microbiologically tested. Ideal for sensitive and reactive skin, with properties validated by clinical studies.

NEWCELL FIBER

Newcell Fiber is a pulp deriving from the transformation of fabrics with a high content of cellulose. This pulp can be reintroduced into the process without the addition of any chemical substances.

ECONYL

Econyl is an ecological fiber derived from the fabrics at the end of their life  such as carpets, clothes, nets and construction materials. After being separated from the other materials, the fiber has been sent to the depolymerization plant, after that is ready to be processed again. Econyl with its characteristics is perfect for textile flooring, swimwear or clothing in general.

BIONIC YARN

This yarn is  ecological and very resistant. It comes from recycled plastic wrapped around a polyester fiber. The bottles, after being collected are fuse together and reduced in tiny fibers. The fibers are then spun together to be finally wrapped up with a protective layer.

ORANGE FIBER CELLULOSE

Another bright idea to reuse the waste of the factories. After the production of juice and profumes the fiber can be extracted and transformed into spools of thread. For quality and expertise the Italian orangefiber is leading the luxury’s oriented market of this new product. Here, an explanation in depth of the process.

CORN FIBER

The PLA (poliattic acid) is a polymer obtained from a particular processing of the sugar released from corn and legumes. It’s an ecological material with high moisture absorption, breathability and gloss. The fabric made from corn fiber is easy to care for, cheap and very comfortable to wear. Moreover, it is stain-resistant and UV resistant.

BAMBOO FIBER

Bamboo is an inexhaustible source of raw material for a wide range of uses. The fiber is completely non-toxic, antibacterial and biodegradable. Cultivation of Bamboo is also eco-friendly because requires no chemicals and very little water to grow, releasing  in the meantime a huge amount of oxygen into the environment.

All the industries are taking actions in order to reduce the pollution involved in the production process. A promotion of a slow fashion and a support to who really takes care of the environment are the keys to reduce the impact. Keep yourself informed and try to buy from transparent companies with an ethical behavior. Do you think ecology is for older people? Not at all, read our article about it, Streetwear 4.0: A sustainable revolution, to discover fresh brands for a younger public.

    An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I believe that you should publish more about this subject, it might not be a taboo subject but typically people do not discuss such issues. To the next! Best wishes!! http://buyviews.website2.me/
