Sustainable clothes will be the focus in 2021 and 2022. Many international brands now tend to use functional sustainable materials to make their clothing collection. Functional sustainable clothings are not only include the production process of fabrics or trims, and the use of water-saving and energy-saving technologies, but also have strict requirements for the cleanliness of the clothing production process. It need to be environmentally friendly and meet human needs, but the premise is that they must be sustainable.

In the textile industry, there are many questions and discussions on the topic of sustainable development. Everyone has their own opinions. Here are some of the ideas we've learned and endorsed online:


Although Primaloft has developed Primaloft Bio which can be degradable 100% from the fiber production process to finished fabrics, but 100% degradable recycled fabrics does not seem to be easy to be popularize. In the market, most of recycled fiber can't be biodegradable 100%. It still need time to develop this technology and reduce the cost.


There are many kinds of materials that can be recycled, not only the plastic or metal, such as, recycled cotton, recycled polyester, recycled nylon, recycled silk etc., which also include some fiber materials composed of plastic waste or fiber waste.


How to reduce pollution during the production process of fabrics, trims and clothings is the most important: by using conventional fibers or plant dyeing to reduce the harmful effects on the environment in the fabric production process, using advanced workmanship to reduce wastage during the apparel production process, etc.


How to save resources in production is perhaps the most worth considering point in our textile industry: the advanced technologies in saving water and energy has yet to be developed.


Use natural fibers to achieve sustainable goals in the production process, such as organic cotton (The organic cotton bras and underwear are the trend.), merino wool (which can naturally provide more comfortable performance and sustainability, merino wool clothing gets more and more popular these years).

Anyway, to advance with the times and do the right thing, the sustainable trend is overwhelming and require common efforts to develop.


As one of sustaninable clothing manufacturers, we listed the following:

Fabric with water-based coating technology, a finishing process based on textile chemicals with minimal environmental impact, is made of eco-friendly variegated fibers (similar to distant-dyeing and heather yarns). All waste fibers in the spinning mill can be reused. These fibers are mainly cotton, and also modal fibers, lyocell fibers, viscose fibers, wool, cashmere, linen, silk, etc.
