Two companies team up to create avant-garde collections
Aug '11
The Spanish company Jeanologia, developer of GFK laser and G2 technologies, and the brand Marithé + François Girbaud have joined to create a denim collection using these new technologies, a revolution in the jeans industry.

Both companies, widely-conscious about environment and workers conditions of the jeans industry, have created a jeans collection following principles of efficiency, ecology and ethics, which also have an authentic and edgy look.

The prestigious designer François Girbaud has expressed his excitement at being able to realize this collection: "It's amazing what we can do today with technology. I am very happy and proud to revolutionize the industry. It's great to have this possibility ".

Also, Enrique Silla Jeanologia President said that "6,000 million jeans are consumed per year. Today, 15% of these jeans are produced with our GFK laser and G2 technology. With these techniques, we can reproduce authentic vintage saving water, chemicals and energy".

The samples, which were presented at the fair Denim by PV de Paris, have raised great interest among the industry. Therefore, during the 22, 23 and August 24, Jeanologia and Marithé + Francois Girbaud will present their joint work in the Project show in Las Vegas showing the American public laser technology and G2 developed by Jeanologia.

François Girbaud, creator of the “stone wash” in the 60's, has been also the first adopting Jeanologia technologies.

Jeanologia, a company specialized in research and development of new technologies for the jeans industry, has developed innovative techniques that reduce environmental pollution, energy consumption and also promote health of workers and consumers.

Specifically, Jeanologia has developed the first textile laser in 1999. GFK laser reproduces authentic worn patterns on jeans, reducing production time and assuring reproducibility, reducing energy consumption and achieving true authentic look.

In addition, the company has also developed G2 technology, an eco-washing machine that works only with active oxygen and ozone, allowing wash jeans and shirts with vintage finish, without using water or chemicals. This machine transforms the atmosphere air in gases by two generators. It's a perfect cycle, once the washing is finished, the gas is converted back to breathable air, returning it to nature and without any harm to the environment.

G2 technology brings significant benefits to the environment by saving energy and causing no pollution. If the entire textile industry used this new technology would achieve a saving of 4,500 million kilo watts of power, 2.4 million tons of chemicals and 1,200 million cubic meters of water.
