Our Fabrics - State of Matter™
Our fabrics are the heart of our collection, In fact, we think of ourselves more as a fabric company than a menswear company. Much like a house must first have a foundation and a frame before it becomes a home, our shirts, pants and blazers must first have a killer fabric before they become your favorite men's clothing..
So let's meet the fabric innovations.
First up, RENU circular fibers. With the waste in the apparel industry RENU decided to make like-new polyester from a process of recycling old garments and textiles that used to be thrown away. We knew there were fabrics out there using recycled materials, but RENU was the only one who aligned with our vision to push beyond the status quo. To learn more go to Renu-project.com. Our RENU fibers are Bluesign (https://www.bluesign.com/en) and OEKO-TEX (https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/) certified.
Next up, LYCRA® EcoMade elastane. We love this stuff. The makers of LYCRA® fiber realized they had materials from their production process that could be recycled and blended with new materials to create LYCRA® EcoMade elastane. This innovative fiber has 20% recycled content, keeping materials in use while maintaining the great performance of the original product. We mix some of this into our State of Matter collection to give you the movement you want in everything you wear. Brilliant. LYCRA® EcoMade elastane is also GRS certified (Global Recycled Standard (GRS).
LYCRA® is a registered trademark of The LYCRA Company.
The magic in ECONYL® is that it's a regenerated nylon that would otherwise pollute the Earth. This waste is transformed back into raw material that performs exactly the same as brand new nylon. When you can reuse materials without sacrificing performance, consider yourself a wizard. ECONYL® is also GRS certified (Recycled Claim Standard (RCS) + Global Recycled Standard (GRS).
REPREVE® makes recycling plastic bottles into an art form. They are redirecting as many plastic bottles as possible that were otherwise headed to the landfill and our oceans, chopping them into tiny chips, then spinning them into fibers. Fibers = threads = what we can use to make amazing apparel. REPREVE® is SCS Global certified as 100% post consumer recycled material. https://www.scsglobalservices.com/certified-green-products-guide?pd_pid=22584
