Riachuelo introduced sustainable Fitness Fashion Collection made with LYCRA® EcoMade fiber, which is produced using 20% pre-consumption recycled spandex, and Rhodia’s Amni Soul Eco® biodegradable polyamide.
Using sustainable textile technologies, the collection was made with LYCRA® EcoMade fiber, which is produced using 20% pre-consumption recycled spandex, and Rhodia’s Amni Soul Eco® biodegradable polyamide, which decomposes in about three years after disposal in landfills. The collection includes ten options of comfortable sets with Berlan Têxtil’s Eco Print stamping, which reduces water consumption by 90% and energy consumption by 30% throughout the process when compared to the rotary process.
“Our focus is to increasingly offer sustainable products to our customers and, with this collection, we have opened yet another door for the retail sector. Riachuelo has shown itself to be progressively active, and we are especially committed to contributing to more sustainable fashion”, said Valesca Magalhães, Sustainability Manager, Riachuelo.
The functionality and elasticity of the pieces are strong benefits the collection offers, also, to easily shape the body. The pieces were made especially for leisure and sports use and bring versatility. The prints vary between floral, plain, with or without textures, and canvases in black, blue, green, and pink.
