The fabrics are made with a minimum of 50% pre- and post-consumer recycled blend that is entirely Global Recycled Standard (GRS) certified. This results in less use of natural resources and a reduced carbon and water footprint of up to 45% and 65% respectively.
Held at main Stage, the panel was a chance to delve into the great strides that the industry has taken to dramatically reduce its carbon footprint through ground-breaking technology, with the speakers stating that “sustainability strategies are essential for the health not only of the planet but also of the industry itself.”

ISKO™ signs Dutch Denim Deal

ISKO has signed the Dutch Denim Deal for circular denim. The Denim Deal, a public-private initiative, was launched by the Dutch government following the EU Green Deal and the Circular Action Plan and includes agreements to make the denim textile chain more circular. In the deal, more than 40 parties, such as Scotch & Soda, PVH and Soorty, are working together to improve post-consumer textiles in the denim industry and make fiber recycling the new norm. The signatories cover a wide range of manufacturing companies, brands and stores, collectors, sorters, cutters, and weavers.

The main objective is to collectively produce a total of 3 million jeans with (a minimum of 20%) post-consumer recycled cotton (PCR) by the end of 2023. In addition, all parties have agreed that they will work together towards the standard of at least 5% recycled textiles in all denim garments as quickly as possible. The Denim Deal is also an opportunity to set up a 'reverse supply chain' for recycled cotton and create a systemic change to close the denim cycle.

Although the denim industry still has a negative image due to its high carbon footprint, in recent years many good steps have been taken in the field of recycling. But these steps are on a small scale, limiting the overall impact.
"The Dutch Denim Deal fits perfectly into ISKO's circular strategy," says Marc Lensen, ISKO Head of Global Communication. "Our scale and knowledge of sustainable technological solutions will increase the overall impact and accelerate circularity in the denim chain.”

Branche zeigt sich zu den Düsseldorf Fashion Days optimistisch

In Düsseldorf konnte Ende Januar unter strengen Corona-Reglementierungen die Kollektionssichtung der Herbst-/Wintermode 2023 im Rahmen der Düsseldorf Fashion Days stattfinden. Dank zuverlässiger Impfnachweiskontrolle und Schnelltests vor Ort, konnten Einkäufer:innen in über 600 Showrooms ihre Order platzierten. Dominiert wurden viele Gespräche von moderaten Preiserhöhungen und steigenden Personalkosten. Die Stimmen der Branche war jedoch einheitlich optimistisch: „Sobald die 2G-Regel einheitlich entfällt, kommt das Geschäft zurück", ließen Händler:innen einheitlich verlauten.

Dank zuverlässiger Impfnachweiskontrolle und Schnelltests vor Ort, konnten Einkäufer:innen in über 600 Showrooms ihre Order platzierten. Dominiert wurden viele Gespräche von moderaten Preiserhöhungen und steigenden Personalkosten. Die Stimmen der Branche war jedoch einheitlich optimistisch: „Sobald die 2G-Regel einheitlich entfällt, kommt das Geschäft zurück", ließen Händler:innen einheitlich verlauten.

„Dass die Düsseldorf Fashion Days stattfinden konnten, ist ein wichtiges Signal für die gesamte Branche und unterstreicht die Relevanz des Modestandortes. Die Zusammenarbeit mit der Stadt Düsseldorf sowie die Bereitstellung eines Hygienekonzeptes haben allen Akteuren Sicherheit gegeben. Die Einkäufer:innen waren dankbar für eine Kollektionssichtung am Standort und den persönlichen Kontakt. Wir freuen uns jetzt auf den Sommer 2022 und hoffen, dass die geplanten DFD-Aktivitäten sowie neue Formate stattfinden können, um an den Erfolg des letzten Jahres anknüpfen zu können“, so Angelika Firnrohr, Geschäftsführerin des Fashion Net Düsseldorf.

„Das Vertrauen zu unserem Standort ist hier“, sagt Ulrike Kähler, Geschäftsführerin der Igedo Company und Veranstalterin der FASHN Rooms auf dem Areal Böhler. Zu den DFD verzeichnete sie im Januar 2022 einen Markenzuwachs von 80 neuen, internationalen Brands. „Agenturen und Marken fühlen sich bei uns gut aufgehoben und schätzen die Verlässlichkeit des Orderstandortes Düsseldorf. Auch wenn die Messe in Pandemiezeiten einen großen Mehraufwand und erhöhte Personalkosten bedeutet, sind wir dankbar FASHN Rooms als Präsenzveranstaltung anbieten zu können. Das Feedback auf die bevorstehende SHOES Düsseldorf ist ebenfalls ausschließlich positiv: Vor Corona haben 500 Marken ausgestellt, jetzt sind es bereits wieder 400 – somit sind wir nach 1,5 Jahren wieder auf Kurs.“

Über einen deutlichen Zuwachs ausländische Einkäufer:innen freut sich Julius Brinkmann, Geschäftsführer der bugatti Holding Brinkmann GmbH & Co. KG. „Wir haben als Unternehmensgruppe in den letzten zwei Jahren aufgrund der Pandemie stark gelitten, weil in der gesamten Branche die Geschäftsgrundlage weggefallen ist. Warenverfügbarkeit war nicht immer gegeben, Preisanpassungen oft die Folge. Die bugatti Holding ist jedoch wieder auf Wachstum ausgerichtet. Ich hoffe, dass sich diese Prognose in den nächsten Wochen auch bestätigt, bin aber sehr zuversichtlich. Aufgrund der gegenwärtigen Situation sind wir seit dieser Orderrunde außerdem digital präsent, sodass die gesamte Orderabwicklung über einen Screen laufen kann. Unser Wirkungskreis ist dadurch flexibler geworden. Für den Sommer wünsche ich mir jedoch, dass wir all unsere ausländischen Partner wieder nach Düsseldorf einladen zu können.“

Mirjam Dietz, Direktorin für Markenkommunikation und –entwicklung der The Supreme Group fasst zusammen: „Wir waren mit der Besucherfrequenz und der Qualität der Einkäufer:innen sehr zufrieden. Gerade Einzelhändler:innen sind es gewohnt, die geltenden Corona-Regeln zu befolgen und kommen motiviert zur Order. Sehr positiv ist außerdem, dass wir trotz verschärfter Corona-Reglementierungen keine großen Schwankungen als Showroom-Vermieter feststellen konnten. Die Supreme Women&Men ist in Düsseldorf und München ausgebucht, die Qualität der Einkäufer:innen stimmt und die Stimmung ist positiv. Aktuell planen wir auf dem Niveau von 2019.“

ISKO™ creates a fully sustainable Fabric Collection (c) ISKO

ISKO™ creates a fully sustainable Fabric Collection

ISKO’s 2023 Collection Vol. 1 is designed to meet the varied needs of today’s consumer by providing fashion, comfort, versatility and responsibility in each of its innovative fabrics. The entire collection is “engineered for nature” using ISKO’s recently launched R-TWO™50+ technology – a process which creates high-quality denim that is less harmful to the natural world.

R-TWO™50+ is the driving force behind ISKO’s efforts to reduce the industry’s impact on the planet. The fabrics are made with a minimum of 50% pre- and post-consumer recycled blend that is entirely Global Recycled Standard (GRS) certified. This results in less use of natural resources and a reduced carbon and water footprint of up to 45% and 65% respectively.

ISKO has also incorporated hemp into the collection as a sustainably viable alternative to cotton. Hemp requires much less water, no pesticides and grows quickly in almost any type of soil. New spinning techniques give the fiber a softer hand feel and make hemp a genuinely enticing option to cotton.

2023 Collection Vol. 1 includes ISKO Blue Skin™, Jeggings™, ISKO™ Rigid, ISKO Rigidflex™, ISKO EFD™, Summer Colors, Catwalk, ISKO Reform™, ISKO™ Black, ISKO™ Comfort, ISKO Pop™ – and five macro trends (Denim Nation, New Origin, Isko Reborn, Isko Motion, Chill Zone). These trends incorporate some of ISKO’s key denim technologies to create a versatile collection that complements any style, vibe and mood.

ISKO Reform™, ISKO Blue Skin™ and Jeggings™ are the groups used to create fabrics that are trans-seasonal and one-size-fits-all – subscribing to a philosophy of inclusivity that is valued by Gen Z.

The collection also gives prominence to color groups. ISKO™ Black delivers various shades of black with different elasticity and aspect options. This part of the collection fulfils the perennial need for this timeless color. ISKO EFD™, or ‘Eco For Dye’, is a sustainable approach to producing ecru fabric. This technology shortens the production process and saves on water usage. The result is an ecru-colored base that can be used as is for a natural look or can also be dyed to any color.

New this season are the Summer Colors and Catwalk groups. Summer Colors is inspired by an eclectic mix of influences including natural earth tones, workwear looks or bright colors with authentic, open-end denim constructions. Catwalk is a bold and bright addition to the collection that offers on-trend styles in ISKO finishes including ISKO Urban Jeather™, Pearl Coat and Flashy Finish.

ISKO champions circularity and biodiversity at the Circular Fashion Summit 2021

  • The leading denim ingredient brand joins lablaco’s virtual reality Circular Fashion Summit 2021 as an Innovation Partner

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 TWO™50+ fabrics are also playing a role in moving towards this goal. E ngineered 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.

Er trägt auch dazu bei, dass enorme Mengen an Abfällen entweder in Europa oder nach dem Export im Ausland auf Deponien und in Verbrennungsanlagen landen. Wir werden nun mit Kelheim zusammenarbeiten, um Abfälle zu vermeiden und den Bedarf an neuen Ressourcen zu verringern, während wir gleichzeitig eine vollständig regionale Versorgung mit umweltfreundlichen Kreislauffasern für Textilien ermöglichen", kommentiert Patrik Lundström, CEO von Renewcell. "Wir freuen uns sehr über d ie Möglichkeit, eng mit einem Partner wie Kelheim zusammenzuarbeiten, der in dieser Branche in Sachen Innovation und Nachhaltigkeit führend ist", fügt er hinzu.

Craig Barker, CEO von Kelheim Fibres: "Mit Renewcell haben wir einen hochprofessionellen Partner gefunden, der unsere Vision von zukunftsweisenden Technologien teilt, die eine vollständige Kreislaufwirtschaft in der textilen Kette ermöglichen. Die Antworten auf die Herausforderungen unserer Zeit zu finden, treibt uns jeden Tag an. Unsere Lösung aus recycelten Zellulosefasern, die aus der Circulose® von Renewcell besteht und in unserem Werk in Kelheim in umweltverträglichen Verfahren hergestellt wird, ist eine Antwort auf den Bedarf der Modeindustrie an nachh altigen, ressourcen und abfallreduzierenden Lösungen und einer regionaleren und zuverlässigeren Lieferkette."

Available exclusively to ISKO’s trade partners, ISKO RHEACT is extremely versatile and suitable for use in a variety of consumer sectors, from lifestyle, to fitness and workwear.

ISKO RHEACT stands out for its woven, gradual compression technology that helps boost the energy of the wearer through improved blood flow. It also provides a micro massaging effect by varying pressure in different areas of a garment. ISKO RHEACT is superior to knit compression as it works for up to 12 hours (compared to 3 hours) for any type of lifestyle – whether it’s taking a long-haul flight, lounging at home or during or after a workout where it helps with warming up before exercise and improves post-workout recovery. From a consumer standpoint, this translates to a garment that wears like a second skin, is durable, works to focus the mind, sharpens the senses, and energizes the body.

ISKO RHEACT products are certified by the independent Hohenstein Institute (Bönnigheim, Germany) and have received the endorsement of many physicians for their health and wellbeing benefits. They are also acknowledged by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as general wellness products as per section 513(g) of the FD&C Act.

ISKO and MoRe Research: New possibilities for cellulose-based materials

As one of the driving forces helping to create a fully circular fashion industry, ISKO has partnered with Swedish research and development company MoRe Research, a part of RISE Research Institutes of Sweden, to investigate and develop new, sustainable technologies made from cellulosic-based materials, derived from waste textiles, for the company’s 25,000+ range of products. It is hoped that this research will also help make the production of cellulose-based materials more sustainable.

The work with MoRe Research feeds into ISKO’s Responsible Innovation™ strategy and will link with various sustainability projects the company is working on. For example, ISKO recently signed an agreement with HKRITA to license its Green Machine – a unique technology that fully separates and recycles cotton and polyester blends at scale.

For example, ISKO recently signed an agreement with HKRITA to license its Green Machine – a unique technology that fully separates and recycles cotton and polyester blends at scale.

ISKO will leverage MoRe Research!s expertise and resources to find ways of repurposing the clean and toxic-free cellulose powders that are created from the decomposed cotton, as well as the recycled polyester and reintegrate this back into fabric production. By using all of the outputs from the recycling of textiles back into textiles, the prospect of a closed-loop system becomes more feasible.

The investment in this new technology is the latest in ISKO’s ongoing drive for advancements in sustainability. As part of the company’s R-TWO™ program ISKO is also working to develop fabrics with a guaranteed minimum +50% GRS (Global Recycle Standard) recycled content blend. This will significantly reduce the carbon and water footprint of a fabric, as well as make it easy to trace a garment’s sustainable journey step-by-step from the beginning of the supply chain through to the end product.
