The rapid increase in population growth and the high demand for diversity in textile production significantly increase consumption. This suffices to pollute the environment. In addition the waste textile products, the fact that resources are being consumed rapidly in the production process is among the top threats to the environment. For example, around 20 thousand liters of water are used to produce a T-shirt and jeans.

Solutions to wash a pair of pants with a glass of water is currently available. Now, the company has added a new one to its sustainability efforts. A collaboration is made with Lenzing Group, which develops patented technologies such as Tencel, Modal and Refibra, and produces high quality fibers from raw wood using eco-friendly and innovative technologies.
As a result of this collaboration, a collection called “ECOllection” which represents 100% sustainability by using fiber based fabrics obtained by Lenzing from raw woods. Organic fabrics were used in the production of the collection. In addition, all yarns and accessories were selected from recycled materials. The collection consisting of women, men and unisex models was developed with a washing technique called “zero wash” which consumes little to no water.
