Another Kingpins New York show edition is gone, and we have all the scoop and insider information about the newest sustainability and innovation practices in the Denim industry, thanks to Sourcing Journal and Rivet and their amazing coverage stories.
Global Denim has the joy of communicating to you all, that once again they had the privilege to be among the important Denim mills mentioned in the article.
Global Denim talks innovation and sustainability through its newest design proposals and new ecological and sustainable concept of post consumer and recycled Denim waste called Ecoloop.
You can read the following excerpt of the text here;
“Fueled by brands’ demands for new recycled products, Mexico-based Global Denim is experimenting with recycled denim in the warp and weft. The Ecoloop collection, which will be ready for an official launch in October, uses scraps from the mill’s own floor as well as waste purchased from brand partners.
Global Denim creative director Anatt Finkler said the mill is testing fabrics made with 60 percent to 70 percent recycled denim. While there’s a maximum to the amount of recycled yarns that can be used, Finkler said the mill has found the right composition. “The key is how you recycle the yarn,” she said. “Clients still have expectations about resistance and shrinkage.”
Part of Ecoloop’s development is eliminating any reason a brand may snub the sustainable option. Brands won’t buy if the fabric’s performance and aesthetic doesn’t hold up to their standards—regardless of the positive affect it may have on their supply chain, Finkler said. They also won’t buy if the cost isn’t right, which is why Global Denim has worked to keep the cost of Ecoloop fabric remains comparable to other fabrics in its portfolio.
While, pre- and post-consumer recycled denim won’t replace regular cotton, the right communication to the end-user, Finkler said, can make it another viable option, and that’s what brands are searching for.
This season, Global Denim began design garments to help spark creativity among brands. The mill printed and washed fabrics and presented some backside printing to demonstrate the variety of results designers can achieve with a single fabric. “Clients sometimes look at fabrics with closed minds,” Finkler said. “The denim industry can do more to drive trends.”

Ecoloop stand for the new fabric group made with recycled cotton, made in house with post consumer waste and denim scraps.
Ecoloop stands for circularity and sustainability. Going a step forward towards a circular economy, a more eco friendly world and a future were consumption can become more sustainable and the reuse of garments and unwanted fabrics, instead of becoming waste, can become a new mine of gold for a new brighter cleaner future.
Global Denim will introduce this concept with a test fabric in the next edition of Kingpins in the beautiful city of New York, and plans to expand its collection to be debuted during Kingpins Amsterdam in October.
That time of the year when we get to go to the beautiful New York City and participate once again at the incredible Kingpins Show, where all the denim family come together to discuss the latest advances in the field, present its new technologies and collections is here at last!
Don´t forget to visit us at the show, that will take place once again at Basketball City, at Pier 36, 299 South Street NY, on July 6-7.
Sustainability, going green, circularity and Ecology, were the trending topics at the Kingpins Amsterdam Show.
We are living in a time where we have to be extremely careful of our natural resources. Because of the excess of usage, we are running out of them and by our lack of commitment and attention we are improving global warming and deteriorating our beloved world.
In the most recent times the denim industry is creating a lot of effort to put its grain of sand into the world and completely transforming the business into a cleaner and more ecofriendly one.

on Global we can read the following:
“Mexico-based Global Denim brought back an expanded B-Touch collection, a range of peached fabric with an ultra soft hand. The mill added indigo to the popular line, which launched last season with black, gray and PFD for garment dye. “Everyone asked for indigo, but it was tricky to get it right because the process scrapes indigo off. We had to find the right balance,” Jake Fraser, Global Denim director of U.S. sales and marketing, said.”
