Treat yourself well. Treat our planet well.
Fantastic Enterprise (FANTERCO) announced ambitious goals for our products manufacturing in terms of sustainability and environmental impact, so to act coherently with our own beliefs. We set the deadline for 2020 for our projects.
As a sustainable / Circular Fashion Consultant and Owner at Green Strategy, Dr. Anna Brismar has identified sixteen key principles, twelve for industry and four for consumers, to support a more circular and sustainable fashion and textile industry.
The first five principles for designers,
Principle 1: Design with a Purpose,
Principle 2: Design for Longevity,
Principle 3: Design for Resource Efficiency,
Principle 4: Design for Biodegradability, and
Principle 5: Design for Recyclability,
each one fits into the #circulartextiles cycle:
Focusing on Principle 6 to 10 for supply chain sourcing, FANTERCO we provide manufacture solutions to fulfill designers' circular fashion requirements. For example, to meet designs for longevity, we have long-lasting fabrics such as 65% Polyester 35% Cotton which has natural hand feel but stays in shape after washes much longer than 100% Cotton garments do. To meet Principle 3 resource efficiency, we supply fabrics made by sustainable production, i.e. less production procedures and wastes, such as digital printing / finishing with saving more than 80% of water use. For Principle 4 & 5, we may adapt fabrics made of biodegradable and recycled materials.
Yes, it's easy to be green. Either you are a big brand or a fashion entrepreneur. Ride along the trend with us!
