All our non-cotton garments are either made from fabrics woven with Econyl yarns, or fibers made from industrial waste.
Econyl rescue waste that is otherwise polluting the Earth, and then they sort and clean this waste in order to recover as much viable nylon as possible. Through a radical regeneration and purification process, the nylon waste is recycled right back to its original properties. This regenerated nylon is then processed into textile yarn and sourced by sustainable fabric weavers. These fabrics are of supreme quality and clothing manufacturers can make high end garments (like ours) from them. In this way, we subtract from pollution and create recycled and endlessly recyclable garments that people can enjoy and rely on for years. The most exciting fact is, that when you have worn out your Diamond Day garment (in several years), this garment can go right back into the regenerative loop and there will be no need to make new plastic from heavily polluting and non-renewable crude oil. Econyl’s regenerative processes have thus rendered the nylon infinitely renewable and the vicious cycle of fast fashion is broken.
Our non-cotton fabric mill partners hold among them the following sustainability certificates: ISO14001, OEKO-TEX, GRS & GOTS.
Our cotton garments are all made from GOTS certified 100% organic cotton. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent third-party certification of the entire textile supply chain. Organic fibres are natural fibres grown without the use of synthetic pesticides, insecticides, or herbicides and GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) according to the principles of organic agriculture. Organic agriculture is a production process that sustains the health of ecosystems, soils and people. GOTS evaluates the processing and manufacturing of textiles on the basis of both, environmental and social criteria. This means assessing everything from the chemical inputs being used to the ethical treatment of workers. To become GOTS certified, it is mandatory to meet all of these criteria. On-site inspection and certification of processors, manufacturers and traders is performed by independent Third-Party GOTS accredited Certification Bodies and forms the basis of the GOTS monitoring system. It serves to provide a credible assurance for the integrity of GOTS certified textiles.
