ISKO continues to reaffirm its commitment towards circularity by participating as an Innovation Partner in the Circular Fashion Summit 2021 by lablaco. The summit will bring together leaders of change across design, technology and sustainability to share knowledge and take action towards creating a circular future for fashion. The event will be held in a VR version of the Grand Palais Éphémère in Paris and will take place on 9-12 December.

The leading denim ingredient brand joins lablaco’s virtual-reality (VR) Circular Fashion Summit 2021 as an Innovation Partner.

ISKO’s approach to circularity is built on creating a future where no virgin resources are needed to produce beautiful, durable and high performing woven fabrics. To achieve this, the leading denim ingredient brand is working to remove its reliance on fossil fuels and virgin materials by employing only renewable energy and by setting the challenging target of using 100% recycled or reused materials.

This impressive goal is possible thanks to the cutting-edge technologies ISKO is working with, such as a one-of-a-kind process which fully separates and recycles cotton and polyester blends at scale, and collaborative partnerships with MoRe Research that are aimed at discovering new possibilities for cellulose-based materials. ISKO’s new generation of R- TWOTM50+ fabrics are also playing a role in moving towards this goal. ‘Engineered for nature’, they use a minimum of 50% pre- and post-consumer recycled blend, reducing carbon and water footprints by 45% and 65% respectively, and are all GRS-certified.

ISKO also believes that the transition to a circular economy cannot happen without addressing the impact on biodiversity and our ecology. Tackling the over-sourcing of raw materials is key, as the extraction of new natural resources and the impact on carbon emissions in processing them contributes to more than 90% of biodiversity loss.




 

“ISKO is proud to be partnering with lablaco for the Circular Fashion Summit, taking place in virtual reality at the Grand Palais during Paris Fashion Week, December 9-12, 2021.” explained Fatih Konukog?lu, ISKO CEO. “This ground breaking event is aiming to accelerate the transition to a circular economy through digitization and technological advancement. At ISKO, we are strongly aligned with this vision: continuously innovating and improving our processes to help build a more transparent and connected industry. Investing in revolutionary technologies that can fully separate and recycle cotton and polyester blends at scale as well as partnering with advanced research labs and institutes that are pushing the boundaries of what is possible.”
