THE MOODIE DAVITT – For a world beyond next season: Wolford focuses on biodegradable and recyclable garments
By Colleen Morgan
Austrian skinwear specialist Wolford has reinforced its backing of sustainability in the fashion industry. The brand has claimed a world’s first in the apparel and textile sector as the holder of two Cradle to Cradle Gold certificates, which recognise its efforts to minimise waste caused by the fashion industry.
On a technical level, the brand has started to use nylon. The Econyl yarn is regenerated from fishnets and other nylon wastes and, according to the brand, can be used in a wide range of garments. New legwear styles featuring this process fibre will be launched in 2020.
