ISKO Closes the Loop on Denim
The denim world continues to transform how jeans are made, and re-made, in an effort to create a circular economy for clothing, from fiber to finished goods and around again. ISKO is keeping pace with this goal by participating in The Jeans Redesign – a project, established by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s Make Fashion Circular initiative, to encourage and guide the industry to close the loop on the denim supply chain.
ISKO reports that it meets the requirements for participation set by The Jeans Redesign guidelines and has made a commitment that 85 percent of its entire fabric production will consist of recycled material content made from pre-consumer and post-consumer recycled materials. This production will be independently verified by Textile Exchange audit bodies.
The company explains that this achievement is made possible using ISKO’s R-TWO technology which is created through a patented and exclusive yarn spinning technique that retains the unique properties and benefits found in ISKO’s statement fabrics.
