ECONYL®

Materials A high-tech and high-performance material made from nylon waste, such as discarded fishnets and textile leftovers.

ECONYL® is an innovative nylon yarn made in Slovenia by supplier Aquafil. Designed exclusively from waste materials such as discarded fishnets and textile scraps, our regenerated nylon has a much lower impact on the environment than virgin nylon and helps divert waste from landfills and oceans. The production process starts by recovering textile leftovers, industrial plastic components, carpeting and fishnets from the world’s oceans. The fishnets are retrieved from all parts of the world – from the North Sea to South Asia – and include so-called ghost nets which have been lost and left at sea and pose a serious threat to marine life. The waste is collected through different initiatives and projects such as The Healthy Seas, where volunteer divers recover nets from the bottom of the European seas, and Net-Works™ which encourages coastal communities in the Philippines and Cameroon to collect and sell discarded fishing nets. Through an advanced regeneration process, the nylon waste is melted and broken down to its original building blocks (monomers). From here, it is possible to rebuild a new nylon fibre with the exact same purity and performance as virgin nylon – but without the use of raw fossil materials. Regeneration means that the material is recycled with perfect quality, retaining the inherent strength, durability and lightness of nylon, and that our products can potentially be recycled infinitely. The ECONYL® regeneration process helps saving crude oil, avoiding CO2 emissions, as well as reclaiming waste materials from the environment. Excess energy from the plant in Ljubljana is used to heat the pools of the neighbouring water park Atlantis.

ARCHIVE Materials

Responsible Wool Standard (RWS)

Responsible wool guarantees animal welfare and promotes environmental care on the farms, as well as a progressive and more sustainable use of the land.

Recycled polyester

Recycled polyester is made from post-consumer PET derived from plastic bottles. Strong, durable and moisture-resistant, it holds the same properties as conventional polyester.

 

Recycled cashmere

Our cashmere products are made using a special blend of recycled cashmere and responsible merino wool, which has a considerably lower environmental impact compared with conventional cashmere.

Upcycled Down

Our collection of lightweight down-padded outerwear and accessories, offering superior natural warmth from reclaimed materials.

Yak

Yak is a superfine luxury fibre that is warmer and softer than merino wool and more breathable than cashmere.

Econyl

A high-tech and high-performance material made from nylon waste, such as discarded fishnets and textile leftovers.

Alpaca

Alpaca is an airy and lightweight fibre with surprising strength and elasticity. It is especially suited to sensitive skin due to its smooth surface and lack of lanolin oil.

Tencel® Lyocell

TENCEL® is a semi-synthetic material made using sustainably sourced wood pulp. Cool and silky soft, it is used in a wide range of products from blouses to activewear and children’s clothes.

The grid is an essential element of our visual identity. It represents the notion of the archive and is used to organise and display information ranging from the names of plants to fabric weights and different types of materials used in our collections. These nine squares symbolise the separate parts that together form our world, and they are also the areas where we strive to make a difference.
