Prym, a leader in the supply of fasteners and accessories, is set to launch L.I.F.E certified fastners, which significantly lower the process and environmental footprint of Prym Fashion products compared to conventional manufacturing processes, at Premiere Vision Paris, in hall 4, stand D37. The global fashion event will be held from February 12-14, 2019.

L.I.F.E stands for Low Impact Fastener Ensemble and are available in dozens of finishes based on brass, copper, and stainless-steel base materials.

The initial collection of L.I.F.E. certified metal fasteners will be produced by Prym Fashion Italia, a recognised leader in the snap fastener and rivet industry, in their plant in Lecco, Italy. Prym Fashion Italia has spent several years perfecting the finishing processes used in the L.I.F.E. certified fasteners to minimise the environmental impact while also ensuring the quality and longevity of the finish, the company said in a press release.

“The production of metal fasteners for apparel and leather goods involves a broad spectrum of processes and finishes, including electroplating, chemical colouring and coating – all of which require a substantial amount of resources and materials. Our goal for our L.I.F.E. certified programme is to produce a wide range of finishes through more environmentally friendly processes, allowing customers to use Prym fasteners that contribute to their overall sustainability objectives,” Brian Moore, chief executive officer of Prym said.

“There are four primary principles to produce fasteners with a lower environmental footprint, which are fewer harmful substances, fewer chemical inputs, the elimination of heavy metals, and less energy. Any Prym fastener that is L.I.F.E. certified will adhere to one or more of these principles, regardless of where they are produced, and we look forward to introducing additional products in the months ahead,” Philipp Osthaus, manager of sustainable products for Prym said.

The environmental impact of nine metal L.I.F.E. certified fasteners compared to conventional processes, which were validated by Made-By, a recognised not-for-profit organisation with a mission to make sustainability common practice in the fashion industry, include water reduction of 65 per cent, electricity reduction of 16 per cent, chemicals reduced by 98 per cent, and hazardous waste reduced by 85 per cent.
