Cone Denim, a global leader in denim authenticity and sustainable innovation based in the US, has announced its collaboration with Intrinsic Advanced Materials as the first denim mill to offer the revolutionary CiCLO technology. Cone Denim is also introducing its newest denim capsule collection of CiCLO Stretch Denim, the latest in sustainable solutions.
Cone Denim is known for its signature S Gene stretch denims which incorporate polyester components into the stretch. Products made with CiCLO fibres reduce the persistence of plastic microfibers in our oceans and plastic accumulation in landfills and allow synthetic plastic-based fibres to behave more like natural fibres. This patent-pending technology provides the platform for making Cone’s CiCLO Stretch Denim eco-friendly and a more sustainable stretch solution, according to Cone Denim.
“We are excited to partner with CiCLO as the first denim mill to apply this unique technology to create a kinder stretch denim for the planet. There is no compromise on stretch performance, hand, or aesthetics and CiCLO stretch denims are also offered in Cone’s distilled indigo shades, for an even more sustainable denim. The flexibility of the technology opens many opportunities to innovate new denim constructions, creating denim you love to wear with a reduced impact on the environment,” Pierette Scavuzzo, director product design for Cone Denim said.
“We would like to congratulate Cone Denim for being the first denim mill to offer a product line with CiCLO technology. Cone’s passion and leadership to offer sustainable denim fabrics is making a difference in the efforts to reduce synthetic microfibre pollution in our oceans and decrease the accumulation in landfills,” Andrea Ferris, CEO of Intrinsic Advanced Materials said.
