Sustainable cotton and natural fibers

Materials

Our natural raw materials and natural blended fibers are sourced from certified producers. We use organic cotton, grown without the use of synthetic pesticides and regenerative cotton, which preserves soil health and biodiversity. For our luxury cotton collection, we use the finest Giza 94 Egyptian cotton. To further reduce water consumption, we have integrated natural fibers, such as tencel, modal and linen, along with certified organic hemp into the collections. Our fabrics are made with maximum care for the environment during the manufacturing process and the minimum use of chemicals.

Recycling process and sustainable production

RECYCLING

We constantly improve and update production facilities and practices to reduce energy consumption, waste and the impact of harmful chemicals on the environment. Our factories use recycled treated water and we also collect and reuse pre- and post- consumer yarns in production. We recycle caustic soda and have our own sewage treatment plant. We are proud of our fully-integrated recycling facility Tadweer, which became operational in 2003.

TADWEER - FULL CIRCLE

Originally established in Syria in 2003, and subsequently transferred to Egypt in 2016, our Tadweer (“recycle” in Arabic) recycling plant has been at the forefront of our commitment to preserving natural resources. Up to 40 tons of waste is collected and recycled every day for the production of 50 tons of recycled yarn.

Recycling Caustic Soda

Our Caustic Soda Recovery Plant enables the recovery of approximately 75% of the used caustic soda from the mercerizing wastewater. We save 100 tonnes of caustic soda and 1100 tonnes of sulphuric acid (98%) in a year.

Sewage Treatment Plant

We can treat and recycle sewage water for irrigation purposes, thus reducing the need to use fresh water. Our plant treats and recycles sewage, which is then used to irrigate fruitless trees. The plant’s present capacity is the processing and production of 171 m3 per day.

Water Treatment Recycle Plant

The new water treatment system encompasses our entire production water usage and results in recycling 70% of the total volume used. All discharged water from different factories is streamlined directly to our water treatment plant by gravity, thus eliminating the need for electric pumps.

Reducing waste and energy use

Reducing

Our team is constantly researching and developing technologies in order to reduce our production of waste and energy consumption. We strive for efficiency in every stage of production, be it weaving, dyeing or finishing processes. Almost a quarter of the energy required in our factories in Türkiye is provided by photovoltaic cells. We regularly update our processes with the most advanced technologies in order to minimize the use of resources.

Sahara

This innovative dyeing and over-dyeing process is designed to reduce water usage (40%), the use of chemicals (10-20%), electricity (20-40%).

Oasis

This process reduces the number of machines necessary in the denim finishing stage, thus reducing the use of resources: electricity (35%), gas (79%), steam (32%) and water (40%). The performance of super-stretch fabrics is also increased.

Delta

Our most advanced process, the Delta denim finishing process makes further savings in water (47%), gas (33%), electricity (32%) and steam (32%).

Selvedge Process

Our artisan selvedge stretch fabrics are produced with maximum consideration for sustainability. This includes the finishing process, during which we discharge zero water.

Photovoltaic System

We have invested in solar panels in Türkiye with current power reaching 5.6 MW, which covers 16-20% of our total energy consumption.

SAVING IN WEAVING

iSaver Itema technology enables us to make significant savings during the weaving phase of production, allowing us to save up to 900 kg of waste yarn per year, per loom.
