A collection inspired by the classic denim colours - dark blue, deep indigo and all shades of black and grey. But above all this collection prioritises nature and the search for the right balance between fashion, performance and sustainability. Kipas, the Turkish global leader in denim production is deeply committed to this, and chooses Fulgar yarns to provide the quality and performance of its most innovative items, launched at the Denim Première Vision fair in Barcelona.
Fulgar, the international leader in the manmade yarn sector aims to provide its partners with ever more advanced - and increasingly "green" - products and solutions. This commitment has been acknowledged by the accolades and certification obtained by its state-of-the-art products and processes, including GLOBAL RECYCLED STANDARD (GRS) – EU ECOLABEL and OEKO-TEX® STD 100. This strategy has enabled the Italian company to play a front line role in social responsibility, making it an increasingly attractive partner for Kipas, also committed to the concept of sustainable denim.
Two exciting items from the KIPAS AW1718 collection offered in 10-12 ounce weight for women and 11-13 ounce for men.
denim fabric manufactured using Q-Nova® by Fulgar, the new 6.6 Nylon microfibre, entirely developed by Fulgar and made from 99% regenerated raw materials. It has a reduction of CO2 emissions, water consumption and use of energy by recycling nylon. This product is entirely eco-sustainable in both composition and processes.
The entire lifecycle of Q-NOVA®, from composition to production process, is subject to strict quality control and traceability procedures. With great sensitivity to environmental issues Q-NOVA® makes the new Denim PETA by Kipas extremely soft and light, making it wonderfully comfortable against the skin.
uses the new EVO® yarn designed by Fulgar and OEKO-TEX® STD 100 certified. EVO® by Fulgar is derived 100% from natural sources, and derived from castor oil seeds that grow in arid areas not given over to agriculture, so the basic biopolymer in EVO® has no repercussions on the human food chain.
The hi-tech yarn, which combines a natural heart and high-performance personality, enriches the new Lana by Kipas denim with significant benefits of outstanding breathability and wick-away moisture control. This means they are cool and comfortable, the perfect solution for denim garments that can be worn every day and for Athleisure items.
