Mango’s Denim Collection Utilising Circular Criteria in Production
Mango is set to take one step further in its journey towards sustainability by launching its denim collection, which incorporates a set of circularity criteria to facilitate the reuse and recycling of garments. Notably, the capsule collection is part of its new sustainable strategy, ‘Sustainable Vision 2030’.
The garments are designed using 100 per cent cotton, 20 per cent of which is recycled, without rivets and jacron labels. Additionally, Mango stated in the press release that the designs are created using 3D digital design technology in an attempt to reduce product samples and, therefore, waste.
It has manufactured garments in such a way that there is minimum use of water and chemicals, additionally, inside the garments, there is a diagram explaining the circular design to its customers, reducing the use of paper labels.
Mango is working in a steadfast way to increase the amount of circular design in its products, whether by creating clothing that is simpler to recycle (bearing in mind their composition or construction), focusing on durability, or using designs that produce less textile waste.
The company is also committed to following the three rules of the circular design strategy: Give it back to the loop targets by creating garments with a simpler design, with a single type of fabric or fewer accessories, to achieve greater recyclability. Extended life believes in designing more long-lasting garments by selecting materials with physical properties certified by AITEX, reinforced garment construction, and using timeless design. No Waste focuses on optimising the materials used and the reincorporation of textile waste.
