Last week I’ve been to Brussels for a very fun and interesting project with ISKO™. For the ones who never heard of this company, ISKO™ is the world’s most innovative denim manufacturer and its fabrics awarded the Nordic Swan and EU Ecolabel.
Nowadays we put so much attention on the origin of the products we eat and drink, on the testing of our beauty products.. but what about the items we wear?.. the denim we wear every day in this case, is it sustainable?
As a big denim lover, getting to know better how denim is normally produced made me change the way I wear and understand my jeans, this thanks to ISKO™, championing an awareness in conscious production in the denim industry. They produce jeans fabric for most of the denim brands I love and normally wear. Knowing that behind my denim and fashion addiction there is a company committed to helping the environment, makes me feel so much better and actually loving my jeans even more!
So, are you curious to know what we did in Brussels?
When I arrived in Brussels I met the loveliest girls who were on board on the project with me, Ella Grace Denton and her right hand, Jemma. First things first, we had lunch in one of the prettiest spots in Brussels, the CHYL, a healthy cafe and sustainable shop, before the kick off of our day with the ISKO™ team. The main focus of the day was the question ‘Is our denim sustainable?’.. Together with the girls, we shopped in the prettiest jeans stores of Brussels city centre exploring if the jeans we wear is not only the latest trend, but also good for the environment!”
If a denim brand selects ISKO™ as a supplier, it means that is sustainable at all means. They decide to work with the only denim mill producer in the world to hold an EU certified label, awarded for their level of sustainable practice.
I hope you guys enjoyed to know a little more about ISKO™ and what this company is doing to help our planet earth. Also, I hope you agree with me that fashion, and in this case denim, is even better when we know it’s coming from a safe source for our environment!
