Cone Denim said today that it has unveiled its Organic Cotton Capsule collection of denims. As part of Cone’s Sustainblue offerings, its capsule collection offers Cone Denim constructions made with 100 percent organically grown cotton, the company said.
Cotton used in the collection is organically grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides or synthetic fertilizers and was grown “using methods and materials that have a lower impact on the environment,” Cone Denim explained. And its organic cotton fabrics were awarded with the Organic Cotton Standards (OCS) certification by Ecocert Greenlife SAS, which verifies that the company met requisite standards for materials and production processes, the firm said.
Cone Denim is consistently at the forefront of sustainability with its denims: Earlier this month, the company created a salt-free, “Distilled Indigo” denim collection that integrates Cadira, a sustainable dyeing process by DyStar.
Pierette Scavuzzo, director of product design at Cone Denim, said that the collection “features true denim heritage meets sustainability,” and that the firm is “excited to launch these fabrics as part of Cone Denim’s latest Modern Retro capsule, building sustainable components in our most authentic expressions as we continue our commitment to furthering sustainability.”
The Organic Cotton Capsule collection debuted last week at Kingpins Amsterdam, with the intention to be in advance of this week’s Earth Day, the company said. At the show, “special” sample garments were designed using 100 percent organic cotton denim, biodegradable trim, wooden buttons and cotton sewing thread to provide “inspiration for a fully nature-friendly design,” all according to the firm.
