ECOALF FALL/WINTER 2014-15 COEUR NEW YORK
ECOALF born in 2009.
The idea was to create a truly sustainable fashion company. The concept grew out of my frustration by overuse of natural resources in the world and the amount of waste produced by industrialized countries.
I found that the most sustainable was no longer use natural resources of the planet in an indiscriminate manner (all studies stress that are currently using 5 times more natural resources than the planet can autogenerate).
Recycling could be the solution!
The problem was that when we go to the market for recycled materials we found a very limited supply and very low quality. The small amount of existing tissues were recycled only a very small percentage (15-20%).
ECOALF was the need to start making alliances through investment in innovation processes develop sophisticated fabrics, linings, ribbons, tags, lanyards recycled materials.
Investing in R & D and traveling the world to identify ideal manufacturing resources, we have carefully built the foundation would become ECOALF.
Through the integration of cutting-edge technology we create clothes and accessories made from recycled materials … without appearing recycled.
The company currently has 11 active partnerships all over the world (TAIWAN, KOREA, PORTUGAL, MEXICO, JAPAN, SPAIN … etc.) That allow us to continually develop all the necessary elements to manufacture recycled origin.
ECOALF for carbon footprint issue always tries to build where does the recycling process. That complicates our production systems but is consistent with our brand values.
ECOALF The name comes from the initials of my son ALFREDO.
I consider ECOALF tissues represents the new generation.
