Eco-denims make hot debut

Nov '09
A recent report states that, one pair of jeans consumes around 3,480 liters of water and 32 kilograms of carbon dioxide during the course of its lifecycle. 15-20 chemicals are involved in the manufacturing process of one single jean. More than its manufacturing process, much environmental impact is caused by the consumption of water and energy during the laundering of jeans at homes.

Eco denim is the new generation for denim apparels. These are made from 100% organic cotton, spinning dyeing and finishing. In the processing of these apparels only natural products are used. Potato starch is used in place of other chemical substances. Even for its trims recycled buttons, zippers and other materials are used. For the dyeing part natural indigo is used for blue colors.

Global demand for denim is estimated to increase by 5% on an average. With the increasing concern of environmentally friendly lifestyle, there is a potential market for eco denims. International brands such as Kuyichi, Levi's, Serfontaine, Del Forte, Arne & Carlos, Linda Loudermilk, and Loomstate offer renowned eco denims.
