Candiani launches at Kingpins its new eco-smart denim range in partnership with Roica from Asahi Kasei.
Both companies can claim their separate leading roles in textile innovation. Candiani, ‘the Greenest Mill in The Blue World’, is always at the cutting edge of new developments, and Roica with its various premium stretch functions. Now they join forces through a unique synergy and an exclusive, custom-made premium stretch sustainable Roica yarn developed by Asahi Kasei especially for Candiani.
ReLAST is a range of market fresh responsible denim products, designed by Candiani that tick every smart box: from new ways in coloration, to better, more sustainable raw materials, new finishing and fade-tech that minimizes water waste, and now with a key responsible stretch ingredient in a specially produced GRS certified Roica yarn that perfectly completes this range making better, more sustainable, sharp fashions for customers looking to live and wear better with better values.
New Coloration values in the K-Seal range come from indigo applied with a water-saving Indigo Juice system. Or in the KN-Cotton range from cotton scraps recycled and dyed with Archroma earth colors. Both are sized with the Kitotex Vegetal size derived from plants and natural renewables.
KN-Blue and Regen ranges use Sulfur dye and conventional Indigo dye using N-Denim tech and water-saving Indigo Juice respectively. The Regen range also uses Tencel and Refbra materials from Lenzing to add softness and a luxe touch to denims of the future.
All ranges in the ReLAST collection deploy customized Roica advanced sustainable stretch yarns.
With the ReLAST collection from Candiani and Roica rewrite the rules for responsible denim stretch manufacture, designing fashion forward denims that are now guaranteed completely 100% sustainable.
The evidence for excellence is underpinned by a qualified list of certifications that include GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) and GRS(Global Recycled Standard), Recycled Cotton Certification as well as registered affiliated processing methods for saving water (Kitotex and Indigo Juice).
Branded raw materials with confirmed responsible status include Tencel and Refibra from Lenzing, Q-Nova recycled polyamide and of course the newly developed Roica advanced fit, premium stretch yarn with full GRS certification.
