IRIEDAILY sustainable Materials

SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS

For some time now, we have been using sustainable materials for the production of our collections. The majority of our T-shirts and sweaters is now made of organic cotton. We also increasingly use recycled materials such as recycled polyester and recycled nylon, especially in jackets and for some fleece styles. Furthermore, we have been relying on the natural material cork for the production of accessories like caps, wallets or belts for a long time. In the Spring/Summer 2021 collection we started using sustainable materials like hemp and LENZING™ ECOVERO™ viscose fibers. For the first time, we also use the natural fiber TENCEL™ from the Austrian company Lenzing for some styles. TENCEL™ is obtained from certified renewable wood sources and is completely biodegradable.

For quite some time we have been using vegan materials for almost all articles. Materials like artificial wool, fake leather or cork are great alternatives to animal materials. All vegan IRIEDAILY Items are now also certified by PETA.

In the upcoming collections, the focus will increasingly be on the use of sustainable materials. Our design team is always on the lookout for alternative and sustainable materials and explores how these can best be used in production. Stay tuned!

IRIEDAILY Organic Cotton

ORGANIC COTTON

Organic cotton is a basic material in the sustainable textile industry.
The cultivation of organic cotton is free from artificial pesticides and fertilisers!
The water consumption is enormously reduced and the farmland can be cultivated for several years.

RECYCLED POLYESTER

Recycled polyester can mean and contain many things. For example recycled beach/ocean plastics or recycled pet bottles. IRIEDAILY has decided to produce recycled polyester from waste products of the textile industry as well as from old clothes. The advantage of this is that the quality of the material is much better and the material can be recycled again and again in the textile industry.
The cradle-to-cradle principal!

IRIEDAILY Recycled Polyester

IRIEDAILY Recycled Nylon

RECYCLED NYLON

Recycled nylon comes from the remnants of the processing industry, which manufactures a wide variety of products from nylon. Nylon is a very robust fibre and is ideal for the production of jackets and accessories, for example. By using recycled nylon, scarce resources such as crude oil are sustainably conserved.

HEMP

The great masterpiece of nature! As a textile material burdened with many prejudices for a long time, hemp now seems to be the „salvation“ of the modern sustainable textile industry. In contrast to cotton, the hemp plant need less water, is higher yielding, needs no pesticides or artificial fertilizers for growth and grows much faster than cotton. In addition, hemp can be used to produce a wide range of fibre thicknesses, so that the „scratchy“ image of hemp material is obsolete. A new hemp era begins!

IRIEDAILY Hemp

IRIEDAILY Cork

CORK

IRIEDAILY has been using this natural material for a long time, especially in the accessories sector. Cork is also such a beautiful gift of nature! But what is cork or how is it won? It‘ quite simple, because cork is just the bark of the cork oak. The bark is extracted without cutting or damaging the tree. In addition, a peeled cork oak binds much more carbon dioxide than an unpeeled one.
The largest cork forests are in Portugal and Spain and are an important part of the local ecosystem!

LENZING™ ECOVERO™ VISKOSE

Some IRIEDAILY products are now made of the environmentally friendly and sustainable LENZING™ ECOVERO™ viscose fiber from the Austrian company Lenzing. For the extraction of LENZING™ ECOVERO™ viscose, the company processes wood and pulp from sustainable forestry. The production of conventional viscose, which is used as a vegan alternative to silk, however, is only possible with the use of a lot of chemicals and high water consumption. We are therefore very happy to have found an environmentally friendly alternative. The LENZING™ ECOVERO™ viscose has even been awarded the EU Ecolabel! This label is only awarded to products or services that are manufactured according to environmentally friendly aspects.

Lenzing Ecovero Viscose

TENCEL ™

The TENCEL™ fiber is produced from certified renewable wood sources by the Austrian company Lenzing and is therefore the most environmentally cellulose based natural fiber available on the market. Lenzing uses local beech woods as well as eucalyptus, which can be cultivated without artificial fertilizers or pesticides and is therefore free of chemical additives. TENCEL™ is completely biodegradable and compostable. In addition, this fabric has an exceptionally smooth texture with a silky touch, warms as well as sheep’s wool and cools as well as linen. Cheers to TENCEL™!
