For the Fall Winter 2022/2023 season, ECOSENSOR by Asahi Kasei Advance is turning to recycling technology to create fashion, underwear and sports fabrics charachterized 100% quality design and 0% waste of natural resources.
The new ECOSENSOR references meet the practical and functional needs of the contemporary consumer, including durability, wellness, versatility and comfort. At the same time, they respond to the demand for new sustainable values thanks to repurposed ingredients, which were strongly desired and researched by the brand since its first collection.
Nothing is destroyed, everything is transformed in the traceable and transparent supply chain and production process of ECOSENSOR by Asahi Kasei Advance. Thanks to its unique value chain based on premium recycling technology, most of its yarns are GRS (Global Recycled Standard) certified, confirming the company’s commitment to a more circular textile and fashion industry. Even the dyeing and finishing phases – key moments in performance wear – are certified by international labels such as Bluesign and Oeko-tex Standard 100.
When it comes to fabric compositions, the recycling economy always dominates. Repurposed polyamide and polyester yarns account respectively for 58 and 39 percent of the collection. The stretch component found in 22 items in the collection is based on ROICA EF from Asahi Kasei – the high-quality, sustainable recycled stretch yarn made from pre-consumer waste. Completing the AW 22/23 offer is Bemberg by Asahi Kasei, the high-tech yarn created by the transformation of cotton linters through a circular, transparent and traceable process that is declined in fabrics with a silky and sensual feel. In terms of environmental sustainability, Bemberg boasts the GRS certification and an end-of-life that guarantees its biodegradability.
