Introducing our More Sustainable Collection!
We're introducing our More Sustainable Collection - new vintage inspired styles made with a more sustainable and eco-responsible fabric!
The fabric we've chosen has a lower impact on the environment than the generic viscose, which can use heavy chemical processes and contribute to deforestation.
It’s a small start but it’s an important step for us. We are working towards expanding the range and widening the techniques used to create more sustainable products. We are not a fully sustainable brand but we care about the impact that fashion has on the planet. The aim is to evolve and be able to offer our lovely customers the same Collectif designs, with a more sustainable story.
The new print comes on a black base with small rainbow polka dots and it has a slightly heavier feel than the standard light viscose. This heavier fabric also makes it wearable all year round to maximise the usability of these styles. You have plenty to choose from, so if you’re a jumpsuit person the Thelma Rainbow Polka Dot Jumpsuit is for you. For a vintage look try the Margot Rainbow Polka Dot Swing Dress, perfect for day time parties or events. For gorgeous separates we have the Stevie Rainbow Polka Dot Top, which can be worn with the matching Megan Rainbow Polka Dot Swing Skirt or with your favourite jeans or wide leg trousers.
What is the new Rainbow Polka range made from?
For these styles we are using LENZING™ ECOVERO™. This viscose is derived from renewable wood sources using an eco-responsible production process. ECOVERO™ offers up to 50% lower emissions and water impact than generic viscose and 100% supply chain transparency.
Why is this good?
- Made from sustainable Wood Source
- Uses eco responsible fibres
- Has lower water impact
Collectif Designer and Sustainability Officer Eleanor says: “it's not just clothing that we are looking at. All areas of production and operations are under review. From warehouse to stores to head office and everything in between. Watch this space for more updates soon!”
