CARBON COATING: this new coating technique may be used without wash, and it is showing its exclusive properties as soon as the consumer starts wearing the garment. The key-concept is that the coal seems in its natural state, looking very dull and matt at first, but getting very shiny when cracked. In this way, every jeans will have a customized shiny dull appeareance.
Moreover when jeans are washed, the garment go back to the original dull look, regaining their polished look after a couple of days of wearing.

RECYCLE: new recycle jeggings made with recycled cotton and polyester for a new concept of denim with recycled cotton and other sustainable ingredients. In the production of new fabrics, ISKO doesn't use water, dye or chemical substances: only recycled materials are involved and collected to be transformed into denim just using natural starch.
PERFORMANCE: moisture management fibres are mostly used. This season ISKO will present highly breathable jeggings that will be able to transfer all moisture from the body in order to keep it cool. But this is not just about denim: garments will also cotton tencel, rayon, polyester and nylon compositions.
