Ecoalf. Environmentally Compatible, Fashionable, and Fair.
The Spaniard Javier Goyeneche was appalled by the waste of raw materials in our throw-away society. He had an idea. In 2009 the designer established his own label, Ecoalf, to produce clothing and accessories from recycled materials. Fishing nets, PET bottles and old automobile tyres are transformed into polyamide thread and processed into sturdy fabrics for the Ecoalf ocean project. It took Goyeneche a whole year to find companies that could perform the costly mechanical processes. A small patch on every Ecoalf product informs the wearer about the resource consumtion for its manufacture and documents the ecological balance.
