Thirteen sustainability efforts by the fashion industry in November 2021

Dec 3, 2021

December 2, 2021 Every month, FashionUnited selects a number of sustainability efforts from the fashion industry from home and abroad. Thirteen news from November in a row. Scotch & Soda brings a Dutch wool cardigan together with The Knitwit Stable The Dutch fashion brand, together with the farm and knitting studio The Knitwit Stable, created a Dutch wool cardigan. The unisex cardigan is made entirely from natural, undyed yarns and approximately two kilograms of raw wool has been used per item. The composition consists of 80 percent wool from the white Texel (sheep) and 20 percent alpaca. The animals graze in the Netherlands. The vest is available in limited edition since November 1 at selected Scotch & Soda stores in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, France, the UK and the US, and via the webshop. Earlier, in 2019, Joe Merino and The Knitwit Stable launched a ‘Dutch’ wool sweater on the market. Investment for innovative biomaterial MycoTEX Photo: Tombstone presentation by the Soestse alderman Liesa van Aalst, property of ROM Textile innovator MycoTex from Soest receives an investment from the Ifund Foundation and the Regional Development Agency (ROM) in Utrecht. MycoTex, the company of Aniela Hoitink, develops 100 percent degradable textiles from mycelium, the root of mushrooms. In 2018, Hoitink won the Global Change Award from the H&M Foundation and in 2020 Mycotex reached the semi-finals of the European Social Innovation Awards. The unique production technology that is used enables the start-up to produce accessories and clothing based on biomaterials. These products are manufactured directly in 3D, without stitching, without waste and, if desired, even tailor-made (the usual steps such as spinning yarn, cutting fabrics and sewing the garments are skipped). With the new investment, MycoTex can further develop materials and production methods. The company wants to develop a pilot collection that will probably be released next year. Pangaia and Unspun introduce Panhemp denim For its second denim release, Pangaia has introduced the new material Panhemp in its line of eco-friendly jeans and jackets. Made from rainforest hemp and organic cotton, the plant-based fabric is available in four genderless styles through the brand’s website. The collection includes two jeans styles, a straight-leg and a wide-leg fashion, and two denim jackets, a cropped jacket and a shearling model lined with recycled wool and Tencel. In addition, Panhemp will be available on the made-to-order denim platform Unspun. Denim is just a recent addition to the Pangaia portfolio. In October, the eco-conscious brand launched its new category, Pangaia Denim, in an extension beyond its typical loungewear offering. Puma tests biodegradable sneakers in collaboration with Dutch Ortessa Group Image:: Puma Sportswear giant Puma has begun experimenting with sustainable production methods around its signature sneaker model Suede. Named Re:Suede, the experimental version of the shoe uses a number of new technological methods in its design, including tanned suede from Zeology, biodegradable thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) and hemp fibres. This is a pilot project in collaboration with the Dutch waste specialist Ortessa Groep. The Netherlands-based waste company will help Puma determine through a series of tests whether the shoe’s A-compost can be managed in an agricultural environment. The results will be used to shape the future of Puma’s sustainable use of footwear. Stella McCartney opens ‘Future of Fashion’ exhibition during COP26 During the UN climate summit in Glasgow in November, attention was paid to making the fashion industry more sustainable, including the exhibition ‘Future of Fashion: An innovation conversation with Stella McCartney’. The exhibition showcased the innovative materials used by British designer Stella McCartney in her collections. McCartney himself has been working for decades with vegetable and synthetic alternatives to fur and leather. In many cases, the production of these products involves serious animal suffering. She is also a champion of technological innovation in materials. The exhibition includes items of clothing made from mycelium, a leather alternative derived from fungi. Insight is also provided into NuCycl, a technology that makes it possible to recycle natural and synthetic materials indefinitely. The exhibition at the Kelvingrove Museum in Glasgow ran from November 3-9. Stella McCartney launches sustainable sourcing platform in partnership with Google Google has launched its Global Fiber Impact Explorer (GFIE), a tool designed to help provide businesses with the data they need to make responsible purchasing decisions. The program was developed in collaboration with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and a number of fashion retailers and organizations to increase its relevance to the industry. The main goal of the platform is to help brands identify high-risk used fibers so they understand the potential impact and risks of specific sourcing decisions. The program is built on the Google Earth system and uses Google Cloud technology. The program assesses the environmental risk of different fibers in different regions and shows information on air pollution, biodiversity, climate and greenhouse gases, forestry and water use. The risk assessment is available for more than 20 different fiber types, including natural and synthetic materials. Ecco Leather launches new technical leather Image: Ecco Leather Ecco Leather, a division of Danish footwear manufacturer Ecco, has unveiled a new innovative material through its platform EL3 that redefines leather “as a material capable of breathing, reacting and performing”. The collection, called ‘Motion 2.0’, combines the finest lightweight leathers with innovative technical performance to offer a material suitable for functional clothing in sportswear, but also for ready-to-wear. To create a lightweight and strong leather that can withstand a lot of wear and tear, Ecco has fused lightweight leather with a lightweight ripstop to produce an FSDX washed ripstop ultra matte with an “uncompromising durability”. Mulberry launches most low-carbon collection British luxury brand Mulberry, in partnership with Muirhead, part of the Scottish Leather Group, has unveiled a new collection of bags made from the world’s least polluting leather. Described by the brand as the “lowest carbon” collection to date, the limited-edition capsule includes the tiny Amberley Satchel, which has been “updated with a holistic approach to sustainability”. Founded in 1840, Muirhead is one of Europe’s oldest tanneries and produces the least carbon-intensive leather in the world at 1.1 kilos of CO2 per hide. This is made possible by the close links with local farmers, the use of the pioneering thermal energy plant that generates heat from waste and by maximizing water consumption by filtering and recycling 40 percent of the wastewater for leather production. Pangaia pop-up store with a focus on the climate opened in Paris Image: Pangaia pop-up store in Galeries Lafayette, Paris. Pangaia recently announced the opening of a sustainable pop-up store in collaboration with Galeries Lafayette in Paris. For the temporary exhibition at the luxury department store in Paris, the label has developed an immersive experience, inspired by its pursuit of ‘high-tech naturalism’. The label collaborated with Galeries Lafayette to create a climate-conscious environment, offsetting the space’s carbon footprint. The circular store is a reference to Pangaia’s story and aims to inform visitors about the material innovations developed by the brand. As part of the shop-in-store, Pangaia has curated a range of products that, according to the brand, emphasizes the key concept of the brand, innovation through science. Three new colorways of some of the designs the brand is known for are also available at the venue. Skechers launches recycled Our Planet Matters collection Skechers has launched its recycled collection, Our Planet Matters, and announced its partnership with the global nonprofit environmental organization The Nature Conservancy. The collection includes a range of men’s, women’s and children’s products. The collection uses materials such as recycled cotton, polyester, rubber, EVA and TPU. In addition to the sustainable and washable technologies included in the project to extend its life, the product packaging will list the recycled content of each item. Skechers has seen a 99 percent reduction in plastic use since 2016, using recyclable cardboard boxes and eco-friendly packaging materials. Skechers has also regularly made sure that its materials are FSC certified, recycled or sourced in an ethical manner. Hugo Boss receives ‘green’ loan of 600 million euros, making company more sustainable determines interest rate Hugo Boss headquarters in Metzingen, Germany. Image: Hugo Boss At the end of November, fashion brand Hugo Boss announced that it had received a syndicated loan from nine international banks, worth 600 million euros. The interest that Hugo Boss pays on the loan is determined annually based on Hugo Boss’ sustainability performance. This can be read in a press release from the German fashion company. The syndicated loan should provide Hugo Boss with the financial space to successfully implement its growth strategy. It also sets sustainability goals: for example, the company aims to be climate neutral itself by 2030 and to have a fully climate neutral supply chain by 2045. Moreover, by 2030, eight out of ten products produced by Hugo Boss must be circular. The syndicated loan is a financial instrument that gives Hugo Boss a boost. Amsterdam introduces circular textile teaching package in primary schools The municipality of Amsterdam has made a teaching kit about circular textiles available at primary schools in the city. The teaching material with the name ‘On the way to Circular Textile’ was developed in collaboration with Daniëlle Schouten, the author of the book The world of clothes and is aimed at students from groups 6 to 8. The sustainable lesson case contains stories and books such as The world of clothing and the Bosatlas of Sustainability, as well as raw materials used in industry to make clothing. In addition, specially designed teaching materials can be found for children from groups 6 to 8. In this way children learn to “re)value clothing in a playful way and they become aware of waste. With the circular initiative, the municipality of Amsterdam wants to reduce textile waste and contribute to sustainability. Burberry Announces Biodiversity Strategy at COP26 Burberry has said it will take action to “protect, restore and regenerate nature.” This was pledged at COP26, the climate summit in Glasgow, where the brand announced a new biodiversity strategy. The UK brand will fund a range of regenerative projects in areas where it has the greatest environmental impact, as well as areas outside its own supply chain that have been most affected. In addition, Burberry will also reduce its own impact on biodiversity by sourcing more sustainable raw materials and ensuring key materials are traceable, certified or recycled by 2025.
