Captain Denim at the Costume Museum by Slow Fashion Next
On the occasion of the celebration of the VIII Conference on Sustainable Fashion, organized jointly by Slow Fashion Next and the Museo del Traje , the Albacete denim brand Capitan Denim has participated, together with the eco-efficient machinery company Care Applications, in an exhibition of garments organic and recycled cotton jeans in the same museum.
Specifically, Captain Denim has donated 3 organic and recycled cotton pants certified with the Global Organic Textile Standard -GOTS-, Global Recycled Standard and Oeko-Tex Standard 100 seals, to test different washing and dyeing processes on them that are more sustainable than those traditional methods.
In this sense, one of the pants will have an enzyme wash, which leads to a saving of 64% water, 78% energy, 28% time and 25% silicone. Another of the jeans will have an ECO Bleach wash, which means 75% less water, 54% less energy, 5% less time, 100% less stone and 25% less silicone. And, lastly, direct-to-garment dyeing jeans, which saves 59% water, 81% energy, 18% time, 98% salt and 25% silicone.
Likewise, on April 5 and 6, the Sustainable Fashion Day will take place for the eighth consecutive year, a pioneering event within the textile sector that brings together important national and international professionals in each edition around its great pillar: sustainability.
In this way, the first day will be dedicated to resources and how to regenerate the system by protecting biodiversity, and the second day, to the value chain, as it is much more than a supply chain.
