ISKO® Denim became an official partner of The Green Carpet Fashion Awards, Italia. In order to help nurture and support emerging talent, ISKO will offer the winner of “The Franca Sozzani GCC Award For Best Emerging Designer”, one of the prestigious awards which has been revealed on September 24 at La Scala during The Green Carpet Fashion Awards, Italia, the opportunity to collaborate on a denim collection to be presented during Milan Fashion Week, February 2018.
ISKO® has been working with and continuously developing new technologies to create ground-breaking denim fabrics that demand less water, chemicals and electricity and to offer innovative products that are designed to last longer. This strategy made ISKO an ideal partner for the inaugural Green Carpet Fashion Awards, Italia, which is an event founded on sustainable values and innovation.
ISKO also has two special divisions based in Italy: one is ISKOTECA™, a center of research and experimentation, in San Benedetto del Tronto, and the other is CREATIVE ROOM™, a product design center, in Castelfranco Veneto.
On the matter, ISKO® CEO Fatih Konukoglu remarked, “The world is wearing denim, and as the world-leading premium denim mill, we know that our choices can make a difference for the environment, for sustainability and social responsibility. This is exactly why we choose to partner with projects and thought-leaders who put sustainability and social justice at the heart of what they do. We can’t wait to see the positive impact that The Green Carpet Fashion Awards, Italia will have on the industry and are so proud to be part of this special event”
Recently, being recognized as the only denim mill in the world to be honored with the Nordic Swan Ecolabel, was also very important for the organization. Six articles of the ISKO EARTH FIT™ platform received this important certification. ISKO EARTH FIT™, a revolutionary 360-degree, responsible innovation platform, was created precisely to actively promote this crucial contemporary revolution born out of respect for the environment. This environmental commitment was commended recently as ISKO®’s ISKO EARTH FIT™ platform received the Nordic Swan Ecolabel, marking a first for the denim industry.
The Nordic Swan Ecolabel is the official Ecolabel in the Nordic countries. Established in 1989 by the Nordic Council of Ministers, it was created with the goal of providing an environmental labeling scheme that would contribute to sustainable consumption.
In addition, ISKO® also became the first and the only denim mill in the world to receive the prestigious EU Ecolabel certification. After the Nordic Swan Ecolabel certification, this is considered to be yet another great achievement for the company and its responsibly innovative approach. ISKO® remains the first and the only denim mill in the world to have received these renowned recognitions, once again distinguishing itself in the industry.
