What is denim fabric and what are the benefits of buying it
Denim is a type of fabric made primarily from cotton, although it is also made from linen and hemp. The use of denim in manufacturing dates back to the early 19th century when the fabric originally made from linen fabrics was produced in France. Soon after, the first denim designs appeared in San Francisco after the gold rush and it quickly became a popular choice for farm workers looking for durable and sturdy clothing.
Today, denim fabric (also called denim) is famous for its use in making jeans, but it also has other uses, such as in jackets. Actually, denim fabric is white, but it is dyed blue to give it the look we all know. Apart from blue, we can find this fabric in an endless number of colors, so it presents a great versatility when it comes to combine it with other garments. In addition, we can find them in different types, such as skinny, flared, high or low waist, boyfriend, straight, etc., making them an iconic piece that can not miss in any capsule closet.
Why buy circular knit denim
Denim fabric, despite its great benefits, can be very harmful to the environment, due to the large amount of water needed to make it as it is composed of cotton. In addition, the dyes used to dye denim fabrics contain toxic chemicals that factories pour into the water of the rivers and lakes around them, so producing this type of fabric not only consumes natural resources, but also pollutes them.
Therefore, the ideal is to reuse existing fabrics to avoid making new ones, and even more important in cotton fabrics. In Recovo, you can buy, in addition to denim, all kinds of reusable fabrics in perfect condition, which derive from the excess production of fabric (1 meter of Recovo fabric can save about 293 liters of water).
In this way, by opting for a circular model to create your collections, you can build a sustainable and environmentally conscious brand.
