Recycled doesn't mean disappear. The thrown away clothing that ends up in landfills take more than 200 years to decompose. As the waste decomposes, it emits meth- ane—a greenhouse gas more potent than carbon. It is time to consider some alternatives - biodegradable fabrics.
Plant-based functional fabrics for sportswear and swimsuit material that focus on the balance of functionality and biodegradability. A thoughtful fabric collection that meets today's sportswear trend.
VegeDry is cellulose-based fabrics with water-repellent property. The water-repellent property is incorporated in the fibre matrix during the spinning process, making water-repellent effect permanent. The water-repellent additive is derived from sustainable material, which is U.S. FDA and BfR approved. The fabric is economical in its use of energy and natural resources and is fully biodegradable.
VegeDry balances functionality with sustainability in several ways. First, it is a plant-based fabric which is comfortable, soft, and breathable, in compare to those that made of nylon or polyester, which are usually restrictive and uncomfortable. Secondly, VegeDry's functionalities are naturally incorporated into its structure, not blended with other synthetic fibers or chemical treatments as needed in other natural fabrics like cotton. This makes VegeDry a great sustainable option. With VegeDry's water-repellent property, it is ideal for period underwear, swimsuit, or base layer clothing for most of the sportswear.
It is becoming increasingly difficult to find a brand that is not incorporating some kind of sustainability effort into its operation. It starts with fast fashion, and we expect it be more of a standard in the sportswear industry.
