BCI Cotton, rPET
We upcycle plastic bottles (freshly fished from the ocean) into delicate fabric and combine it with Better Cotton. The resulting new fabric is dyed with our eco-melange™ technology which uses no water at all.
Our shirts are made stronger and more durable - as the fabric goes through much less chemical processes now, both the tensile and tearing strength is enhanced.
Fashion plays many roles in our society. For most of us, it is a sort of practical art of our own composition; It helps us tell the world who we are or who we aspire to be. On the other hand, carefully tucked away from the billboards and runways, Fashion is one of the ‘dirtiest’ industries in the world. It consumes immense resources, as well as puts millions of people in danger.
The linear economy of Fashion which involves “taking (the natural resources), making (the product) and disposing (the product)” has spun way out of hand and is in desperate need of reinvention.
We need to rethink our connection between ourselves, our clothes and our environment.
Making a single t-shirt requires as much as 4 years’ worth of your drinking water. In some places, almost 70% of that water returns to rivers polluted with highly toxic chemicals. Is this the price we want to pay?
Our main mission at Cosmos Studio is to contribute to the Fashion revolution, particularly focusing on one of the most overlooked, yet one of the most polluting parts of production - dyeing & finishing."
We are here to show that Fashion doesn’t have to be a tradeoff between personal expression and the health of our environment. It can beautiful both on the outside and within.
