ORGANIC COTTON

Organic cotton is a natural fiber which is grown without the use of any synthetic agricultural chemicals such as fertilizers or pesticides. Its production also promotes and enhances biodiversity and biological cycles.

Our organic cotton textiles are certified by ECOCERT. This certification is recognised as the world’s leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres. It defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire organic textiles supply chain and requires compliance with social criteria as well.

Properties:
– Long-lasting textile
– Heating resistance
– Soft and comfortable texture
– Suitable for sensitive skins

How we use it:

TENCEL™

Tencel™ or lyocell is a sustainable fabric, regenerated from wood cellulose. Tencel™ is one of the most environmentally friendly regenerated fabrics, for several reasons. Tencel™ fibers are grown sustainably as they require less water and energy to produce than most of bio-fiber textiles. Moreover, it generates less poisonous chemicals.

Properties:
– Flowing, comfortable and light fiber
– Soft texture
– Easy to dye

How we use it:

MODAL®

Modal® fabric is a semi-synthetic fabric made from beech tree pulp.
It is a bio-based fabric that is made from spinning reconstituted beech tree cellulose.

Modal® is generally considered a more eco-friendly alternative to cotton because beech trees don’t require much water to grow and therefore the production process uses about 10-20 times less water.Modal® is considered a luxurious textile thanks to both its soft feel and high cost, as it is more expensive than either cotton or viscose

Properties :
– Softness & comfort
– Durability
– Flexibility
– Water saving process

How we use it :

CREORA®

Creora® is a textile made from spandex. It is meant to be worn during physical efforts. Moreover, Creora® fiber is easy to dye so it takes fewer chemicals to get vivid colour results.

Properties:
– Superior comfort and stretch
– Antibacterial
– Fast drying
– Fast sweat absorption
– Long-lasting sportive fabric

How we use it:

VELVET CREORA®

Velvet Creora® is a textile made from spandex. It is meant to be worn during physical efforts. Creora® fiber is easy to dye and it takes fewer chemicals to get vivid colour results.

Properties:
– Superior comfort and stretch
– Antibacterial
– Fast drying
– Fast sweat absorption
– Long-lasting sportive fabric

How we use it:

ECONYL®

ECONYL® yarn is a nylon regenerated yarn, made from old fishnets and other waste material! Aquafil regenerates fishnets and turns what is supposed to be a waste into a valuable resource. Therefore, this Italian company not only reduces the amount of waste but also creates a high quality ECONYL® yarn S M K can use to design lovely clothes!

How we use it:

JURASIL®

JURASIL® is a mixture of polyester and vegetable oil from plant extract.
The JURASIL® fiber uses plant-derived extracts natural and continuous antibacterial activity while having excellent staining

Properties :
– Natural friendly antibiotics without antibiotics
– Natural chemicals that are not coated with insulation
– Very good dye ability
– Excellent antistatic effect
– Soft touch
– Bulky and glossy good
– Texture and shine like silk
– Excellent price competition
– Non-irritating
– Excellent deodorising effect

How we use it :

RECYCLED POLYESTER

Recycled polyester is made from 100% post consumer plastic bottles. As an alternative from using non-renewable sources such as petroleum, it decreases waste, saves energy and reduces greenhouse gas emissions; a sustainable fabric that benefits the environment.

How we use it :

CUPRO

Cupro is a ‘regenerated cellulose’ fabric made from cotton waste. Much like Tencel and Modal, cupro is a plant-based material that is chemically processed.
Cupro is a by-product of cotton production, so it is technically a recycled textile.

Nevertheless, the textile is far from being perfect, there are no certification and no way of tracing its production.

How we use it :

ECO-FRIENDLY PU LEATHER (VEGAN)

“eco-friendly” PU leather is a water based polyurethane (with cotton backing) that has been treated to remove all harmful substances such as Colbalt, antimony, arsenic, lead, cadmium, chromium, copper, nickel, mercury, selenium, barium, cheomium VL , that are usually used in normal Polyurethane and are harmful to human health & environment (when use for fashion industry)

How we use it :

TRIMMING WASTE UPCYCLE

Because innovation in fashion is not all about new textiles, S M K upcycles the leftover materials from the previous productions in order to create our own 100% plastic free & zero waste packagings.
