OUR REGENERATED NYLON FABRIC:

IT IS IMPORTANT THAT WE ADDRESS ENERGY EFFICIENCY AND WASTE, WE HAVE MADE FURTHER STEPS TO DOING THIS BY USING RENEWABLE FABRIC FOR OUR NEXT COLLECTION DECO (AS WELL AS CONTRIBUTING 20% OF PROFITS FROM THIS TO SAVE THE SHARKS AROUND THE WORLD). TO MAKE THIS REGENERATED NYLON EXISITING WASTE (FISHING NETS AND PLASTIC WATER BOTTLES) ARE PHYSICALLY SOUGHT AND REMOVED FROM THE OCEAN. THERE ARE 640,000 TONS OF FISHING NETS THAT FLOAT AROUND THE OPEN SEAS (CALLED GHOST NETS), CAUSING THE CAPTURE AND NEEDLESS DEATH TO MARINE MAMMALS SUCH AS WHALES, TURTLES AND BIRDS. THE COMPANY THAT WE USE TO SOURCE REGENERATED NYLON FROM ALSO SPONSOR AND HOLD PROGRAMMES TO RAISE AWARENESS IN FISHING VILLAGES AND COMMUNITIES ABOUT GHOST NETS AND THE DAMAGES THAT THEY CAUSE.
