Isko displayed the Isko Earth Fit collection, with the future of responsible denim, during an event held at The Smith NoMad in Manhattan, US. The collection reflects the brand’s focus on responsibility, innovation, and citizenship. The company has a production capacity of 250 million metres of fabric per year with 1,700 high-tech automated looms.

During the event, guests experienced the complete Isko Earth Fit collection and interacted with Isko’s sales and marketing teams to gain an understanding of the mill’s approach to Responsible Innovation and its outstanding achievements in this field, Isko said in a press release.

Responsible Innovation is an inherent part of Isko’s DNA. Isko is the first denim manufacturer in the world to obtain pre-certified Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) for the Life Cycle Assessment (LCAs) of all its 25,000+ denim fabrics, making them transparent about the environmental impacts of all of the fabrics in the collection. These EPDs are being used to create independently developed Product Category Rules (PCRs), which will help form a way, for the first time ever, to have standardised assessments for denim across the industry.

Isko is also the only denim mill in the world to have achieved both the Nordic Swan Ecolabel and EU Ecolabel for the Isko Earth Fit collection, which is made with raw materials like organic cotton, recycled cotton, and recycled polyester from PET bottles.

Moreover, Isko is a signatory member of the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) programme, which tackles the issue of hazardous chemicals in the textiles industry, and manage the environmental impacts of their operations through the Environmental Management System certified to the international standard ISO 14001.
