Clothing production is the third largest manufacturing industry. It contributes more to climate change, than international aviation and shipping combined.
Nearly 70 million barrels of oil are used each year to create polyester fiber, which is now the most commonly used fiber in our clothing, but takes more than 200 years to decompose.
One in three young women, the biggest segment of consumers, consider garments worn once or twice, to be old. By thinking of the garments we wear as short term tools rather than long term investments, we contribute to wasteful consumption patterns that inevitably lead us towards drastic climate change.
The good news is, we can break this cycle.
Sustainable regenerated yarns such as Econyl® and Repreve® help us all get one step closer to reducing..
5 Billion Kgs of Plastic waste,
640 Tonnes of abandoned fishing nets in our oceans,
Reduce the global warming impact of nylon production by 90% compared with materials created from oil.
However, does this come at the cost of style or comfort?
On the contrary, our La Femme en Noir collection is crafted from Econyl® & Repreve® yarns to create luxuriously soft garments with timeless designs, that can be remoulded infinitely and with a little care, can stand the test of time.
We create our collection in small production runs to cut down on waste and minimise our environmental impact.This ensures there are only limited pieces of our collection available at any time, taking us all one step closer to sustainable fashion.
