Fibres rPet et tissus éco-responsables

RPet fibers and eco-responsible fabrics

Small object a bit insignificant which may not tell you much but which is very representative of the mission we have given ourselves. A biodegradable "tag" clip. Not another plastic that will end up "again" in the water! Yay!

We consider that every little gesture counts and in the development of Couture & Violette Textiles we put great effort into it. It is time to give ourselves the means to respect our environment a little more. From fabrics to packaging, we favor recycled and recyclable materials, and even biodegradable when possible.

This is why we chose fibers that are only environmentally responsible and reasonable.

Oeko-tex 100 certified fabrics and fabrics made from rPet fibers. The designs of our exclusive collection fabrics are made with a process that allows us to make you the most beautiful designs from creations made by us and other talented artists. Images, creations, designs, arts printed on quality fabrics and all, respecting the rights of authors and creation. We can also offer you to print your own creations according to your needs.

We also have in stock a range of matching fabrics for your confections which are carefully chosen. Fabrics made of ecological, organic fibers like bamboo, hemp, cotton, tencel, lyocell and modal. Oeko-tex 100 certified and registered fabrics

To learn more about rPet:

rPet is the term for a material made from recycled particles of the super common plastic that is PET. PET is in everything, everything, everything, but especially in all disposable plastic items such as plastic bottles as well as many types of food and pharmaceutical packaging for example. This therefore makes PET the most widely used plastic.

The recycling of this material is almost endless and, when done right, can recreate items of equal quality.

 We now know that using plastic in our lives is not the most environmentally friendly way to take care of our environment but since it is already present we must learn to produce less of it (ideally not at all) and reclaim it. already existing.

This is where rPet fibers come into play. Finding new life for this already manufactured product is definitely a step in the right direction. We have therefore chosen to use these fibers for the production of our exclusive fabric collections. Fabrics made from rPet fibers are available in different finishes, textures, thicknesses and mostly stretch or even very stretch and are therefore perfect for beautiful and comfortable (soft) clothing but also for specialized athletic and competitive sports clothing.

To find out more about ecological spokes:

You have to start by understanding that there is no fabric that can be considered to have zero borrowing in terms of the ecological cost of production. NO. What to find are the most environmentally responsible options. Bamboo, hemp, fair-sourced organic cotton, tencel, lyocell and modal are such options.

There is a lot of misinformation circulating in online discussion groups regarding the manufacturing processes of eco-friendly fibers like bamboo, hemp, cotton, tencel, lyocell, and modal. Oeko-tex 100 certified and TENCEL ™ registered fabrics. Many believe, wrongly, that these are fabrics that are not ecological by their mechanical and "chemical" process. Yet new technologies have been developed to help the textile industry and reduce the impact on the environment.

 It may seem less complex to cultivate and harvest cotton, thresh it, spin it and weave it and then dye it, however these processes are not more ecological and also have a high human cost in less privileged countries. The new fibers are produced with supervised processes, cost much less water in plant production, and in the creation of the fiber but above all in the human cost of harvesting. They are therefore globally standardized under certain certifications such as Oeko-tex 100 among others.

What is TENCEL ™:

TENCEL ™ has earned an enviable reputation for its environmentally friendly closed-loop production process, which transforms wood pulp into celluloses with a process of high resource efficiency and low environmental impact. Their solvent spinning process recycles all the water used and reuses the solvent at a recovery rate greater than 99%. Consumers can therefore be assured that their choices are not contributing to a negative impact on the environment.
