Ventile has developed a new fabric named Ventile Eco 400 RCO, the brand’s first high performance fabric made entirely from recycled cotton.
The fabric has been designed to achieve a balance of performance, comfort and sustainability in a bid to reduce overall textile waste and to create a durable and environmentally friendly resource for designers and fashion brands.
Ventile Eco 400 RCO all-weather fabric is not coated or laminated therefore it breathes naturally and far more effectively than other all-weather fabrics, says the firm.
Ventile’s Product Manager, Daniel Odermatt, commented: “In response to customer demand and a shift towards sustainability and recycled materials in the textile industry as a whole, it seemed the perfect time to test the ability of recycled cotton and develop a new environmentally-friendly performance fabric to be part of Ventile’s extensive range.
“Ventile Eco 400 RCO has a natural synergy with Ventile Organic Cotton Fabric, which is another major component of our brand. Both ranges are committed to connecting social and environmental awareness with beautiful, well-made and performance-driven clothing and we only expect demand for fabrics like these to continue to rise over the coming years.”
In order to ensure 100 per cent transparency the team manages the full production process from the collection of the raw components of cotton, which would have otherwise been destined for landfill, to recycling technologies, manufacturing and the design of Ventile Eco 400 RCO.
The new fabric is currently available to order in three colourways; charcoal, olive and white stone. Over the upcoming months, the brand has plans to develop and release a larger selection of colour options.
