Today we will learn Incredible technology applied to clothing industry to achieve the “wasteless” target in a circular fashion movement. Well, Swiss-based Dimpora has developed a membrane which can integrate with any outdoor clothes through painting, spraying, coating, or printing. Different from other traditional types of membrane, Dimpora membrane is mineral-based, biodegradable, fluorine-free, waterproof, winterproof, breathable, and seamless. That means you will enjoy nature comfortably without causing any harm to the surroundings. With a zero-waste philosophy in mind, Hallotex – based in Barcelona, Spain, with a production station in Morocco – creates clothes from recycled raw materials. One of the company’s special projects is The Loop, a fascinating way of reusing fabric to recreate new garments. In Asia, Japan-based Synflux has developed a wonderful innovation to help clothing makers reduce waste in the cut procedure. Algorithm Couture allows the production of garments with minimal waste of material and energy. When it comes to a cruelty-free and sustainable way to produce stylish clothes, perhaps the first person who comes to mind is the award-winning and world-famous fashion designer Stella McCartney. A vegetarian and animal rights activist, Ms. McCartney does not use animal fur or skin in her creations, while she is also concerned with the final destination of what we wear as she knows the fashion industry is currently one of the most polluting industries globally. Bolt Threads is a state-of-the-art technological material company located in California, USA, and makes renewable and biodegradable fabrics in laboratories. One of their innovations is Microsilk, a vegan silk inspired by spider silk, but made by humans without harming any spiders. With Bolt Threads, Stella has designed incredibly modern and nature-respecting dresses using Microsilk. Those were just a few of many examples on how clothing manufacturing can go on without damaging nature and innocent creatures, while adopting concepts of “zero-waste” and “from cradle to cradle” with cooperation of consumers and material sorters. We would like to convey our sincere gratitude to all involved in the circular, planet-friendly, and animal life-sparing fashion industry.
