Tribe Australia | Eco-Friendly Fabrics
640 thousand tons of fishing nets are abandoned at the bottom of the ocean. (data sourced from FAO and UNEP).
Tribe Australia are proud users of Carvico and Jersey Lomellina Eco-Friendly Fabrics.
For years now, we have been offering our customers a selection of high end recycled fabrics made of ECONYL® yarn, a 100% regenerated nylon yarn derived from pre and post industrial waste such as discarded fishing nets, carpet fluff (the top part of Nylon carpets which have got to the end of their useful life).
All such materials, once they have reached the end of their useful life, instead of being disposed of in the landfill, are recovered and regenerated by means of a complex chemical-physical process.
For several years now, both Carvico and Jersey Lomellina have been using ECONYL® as a premium ingredient for the production of some of their high end fabrics, guaranteeing the same performance of those made of standard polyamide.
Therefore, designers are not asked to make compromises when developing their collections using sustainable fabrics by Carvico and Jersey Lomellina, so you can be assured that when you're buying your mens swimwear from Tribe Australia you are buying from a environmentally friendly source.
