ISKO™ has embarked on an exciting new ‘Jeans Redesign’ project with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s Make Fashion Circular initiative. The project will encourage and guide the denim industry to transform the way jeans are made and move towards a circular economy for fashion As part of ISKO™’s commitment to sustainability, the company is moving to help accelerate the transition to a circular economy for fashion. The company has made a commitment that 85% of our 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.
ISKO™’s participation in The Jeans Redesign project 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. ISKO’s R-TWO™ is the embodiment of its Responsible Innovation™ mindset and aligns with the principles of a circular economy at the center of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation: to ensure durability, material health, recyclability, and traceability.
“Through our Responsible Innovation™ approach and R-TWO™ platform, we consistently work towards creating ways to make denim more circular. Our participation in The Jeans Redesign brings us one step closer to creating a fully circular fashion industry,” says ISKO’s Head of Sustainability, Ebru Özküçük.
A circular economy eliminates waste and pollution. Driven by design, it keeps products and materials in use, and regenerates natural systems, creating benefits for society, the environment, and the economy. Both the company’s joint vision for the circular fashion industry is simple: for products to be used more, designed to be made again and to be created from safe and recyclable or renewable raw materials.
