Our Made in Brazil materials
On our Made in Brazil products we use fabrics made from Polyamide (not Polyester!) microfibers - texture to the air - soft and natural touch, resulting in more comfortable clothes. These fabrics are made from Rhodia's biodegradable nylon 6.6.
This technology has been enhanced to allow clothing to decompose rapidly after disposal in landfills (anaerobic environment). Decomposition that previously took decades to occur in nylon, now happens in less than 3 years.
We also make sure to get all fabrics from certified textile companies that care for their knits and fabrics to be made from the most environmentally friendly, traceable and raw materials.
In addition, these companies stamping and dying processes use industrial water allowing the use of reused water and avoiding the consumption of drinking water.
