DETAILS ABOUT IRIEDAILY’S SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS

Tencel

TENCEL ™ by LENZING™

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, cools as well as linen and is more absorbent than cotton. TENCEL™ is simply an all-rounder! 🙂

OrganicCotton_2

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.
For organic cotton, trustworthy certificates should be considered.

recycledcotton

RECYCLED COTTON

Recycled cotton consists leftovers from cotton processing as well as pre- and post-consumer textiles. The use of recycled cotton requires less water, no pesticides and as well as an enormous saving of CO2!

RecycledPolyester

RECYCLED POLYESTER


Recycled polyester can mean and contain many things. For example recycled beach/ocean palstics 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!

recycledNylon

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

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 more productive, 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! You can find all our hemp products in the collection section
IRIE by Nature

Cork_2

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!

NaturalDyeing

NATURAL DYEING

Nature is beautiful and colorful! It offers us a number of plants with which we can dye woven materials. For the Spring/Summer 2021 collection we have put some t-shirts in the bath of natural colors and we are very excited about the result. But we already know that these items have unique properties and need special treatments: Because a fixation of the natural colors is not possible, the garment has to be washed separately in any case. In addition, a natural detergent should be used so that the color does not wash out. But let’s give nature a chance!

 SPOKEN WORDS ABOUT IRIEDAILY’S RECYCLED POLYESTER PROGRAM

Our recycled polyester originates from the cradle-to-cradle production principle! NEW: The lining of our recycling jackets are now also made of recycled polyester!

IRIEDAILY IS A PROUD LEADER MEMBER OF THE FAIR WEAR FOUNDATION

IRIEDAILY Brand Performance Check Fair Wear Foundation

Brand Performance Check – IRIEDAILY receives Leader Status again

 

We got some great news: After the Fair Wear Foundation (FWF) has carried out this year’s Brand Perfomance Check (BPC) for IRIEDAILY, we have again received the Leader status! We are very proud of this and look forward to continuing our cooperation with the FWF.

Due to the company’s philosophy, we joined the FWF in the summer of 2016 with the aim of improving the working conditions for workers in our production facilities in Portugal and China. Since 2018 we have been holding the highest award of the FWF – the Leader status, which we received again this year. This is mainly a result of the long-lasting relationships with our partners and factories, as well as the high transparency in our supply chain.

The status is granted anew each year by the FWF after they have carried out a comprehensive Brand Performance Check (BPC). This has the advantage that member companies cannot simply rest on awards or seals they have already received, but instead a continuous process and honest efforts are required. Based on the BPC, the FWF then assigns a score, which is the basis of assessment for the three different ratings “Needs Improvement”, “Good” or “Leader”. By the way, the review always covers the previous year from January to December, in this case the year 2019.
In 2019, we were even able to increase our benchmarking score by a few more points which enabled us to secure our Leader status.
You are very welcome to read through the current BRAND PERFORMANCE CHECK in a moment of silence:

Fashion Revolution Week

The Fashion Revolution Week will take place again from 20 – 26 April 2020.
The Fashion Revolution Day was introduced as a global day of action after one of the largest textile factories, named Rana Plaza, collapsed in Bangladesh on 24 April 2013, killing 1138 people. The day of action now takes place annually, has been expanded to a whole week of action and is intended to provide more transparency and more “fair fashion” in the fashion industry. Now we want to introduce to you some workers from our factories!
