Mango has launched a line of sustainable denim.
The new collection that will be available in the UK includes various women’s garments in denim, such as jackets, gilets, trousers, skirts and jumpsuits in indigo and black. Some products will have dirty washes and be in line with silhouettes influenced by the 2000s.
The garments within the collection have been designed with a single type of 100 per cent cotton fiber, at least 20 per cent of which is recycled. Accessories such as rivets and jacron labels have been eliminated to help minimise waste during product development. The garments were designed using 3D digital design technology in order to reduce the number of samples produced.
Mango has manufactured the garments in this collection minimising its environmental impact in aspects such as the use of chemicals and water, and inside the garments there is a diagram explaining circular design to customers, thus reducing the production of paper labels. Founded in 1984, Mango is based in Spain. Mango has an international presence in over a hundred countries. Although the group is committed to directly controlling its online operations, in 2019 it began to franchise its platform in distant countries, where it does not have its own structure, with relevant local partners.
