Greensboro, NC – Cone Denim®, a global leader in denim authenticity and sustainable innovation, is excited to announce its collaboration with Intrinsic Advanced Materials as the first denim mill to offer the revolutionary CiCLO® technology. Cone Denim is introducing its newest denim capsule collection of CiCLO Stretch Denim, the latest in sustainable solutions.
Cone Denim is known for its signature S Gene® stretch denims which incorporate polyester components into the stretch. Products made with CiCLO fibers reduce the persistence of plastic microfibers in our oceans and plastic accumulation in landfills and allow synthetic plastic-based fibers to behave more like natural fibers. This patent-pending technology provides the platform for making Cone’s CiCLO Stretch Denim eco-friendly and a more sustainable stretch solution.
“We are excited to partner with CiCLO as the first denim mill to apply this unique technology to create a kinder stretch denim for the planet,” says Pierette Scavuzzo, Director Product Design for Cone Denim. “There is no compromise on stretch performance, hand, or aesthetics and CiCLO stretch denims are also offered in Cone’s Distilled Indigo shades, for an even more sustainable denim. The flexibility of the technology opens many opportunities to innovate new denim constructions, creating denim you love to wear with a reduced impact on the environment.”
“We would like to congratulate Cone Denim for being the first denim mill to offer a product line with CiCLO® technology,” says Andrea Ferris, CEO Intrinsic Advanced Materials. “Cone’s passion and leadership to offer sustainable denim fabrics is making a difference in the efforts to reduce synthetic microfiber pollution in our oceans and decrease the accumulation in landfills.”
Visit Cone Denim at the Kingpins Amsterdam Show October 23-24 to see the CiCLO denim collection.
