ISKO's green approach for Fall/Winter fabric trends
May '11
Attention to details, quality materials and cutting-edge production methods have always been ISKO's priorities. The new fall-winter 2012 / 2013 fabrics trends will be keep on following those key values, emphasizing also more attention to towards eco friendly dyeing, finishing and fibres such as linen, hemp, bamboo that represent the new future trend.

Jeans are an icon of freedom, living life to the full and a love of everything natural. ISKO has drawn on this spirit to develop a “green” approach embracing every aspect of manufacture.

This intense environmental commitment is backed by sustainable production.

As example, the new proxy colours and constructions will give a great versatility during the extremely basic laundry finishes and most of them do not need washing. Using just handscraping or local bleach gives fantastic results. Sustainable, soft, eco friendly, versatile fabrics will be the future.

For the next winter season ISKO will present a lot of new ideas and new versions of past season greatest success, all introducing some important fashion trend and innovations into the denim universe:

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.

WAXXY: this new coating technology gives extremely saturated colours with shiny waxy light reflex. As this is a very innovative technique, ISKO strongly believes that this may be the look for future denim.

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.

WORKWEAR: it will be getting stronger. ISKO will offer a wide range of workwear fabrics in a much more modern versions with great shine effects and softness touch. Designed for men, Rigid and OldSkool fabrics offer a more casual style with a blend of simplicity, practicality and technology, perfect for a modern Workwear. Fabrics offer an outstanding fit and a total comfort, thanks also to the exclusive ISKO patented RECALL spinning technology. This revolutionary production process enables much faster recovery than conventional fabrics, limiting loss of shape and ensuring minimum restriction with high stretch performance ranging from 30% to 50%.
