About the fabrics used in the Spring/Summer 2021 collection:
Since over 30 years, linen is Elemente Clemente's "core competence".
Elemente Clemente's linen comes from a traditional weaving mill in Ireland, where the manufacturing of linen is a tradition since the 12th century, and where flax is one of the oldest cultivated plants.
Clothing made of linen is comfortable and breathable. Linen is naturally hygienic and acts antibacterial. Compared to cotton, linen saves up to 90% water in prodcution.
Elemente Clemente's organic cotton is GOTS-certificated and comes from controlled, biological farming in Izmir/Turkey or Uganda. The brand's cotton supplier in Uganda is funding many projects that support small farmers.
Elemente Clemente's nylon is made of recycled materials, like used fishnets. Not only is this helping to save our oceans, and animals like dolphins, turtles, and whales as they often get caught in those nets, but finding a purpose for used materials is also saving energy and raw materials.
Whenever possible, Elemente Clemente chooses dyes that are plant based. Among others, plants that are used for this process are Bougainvillea Glabra Choisy, Calendula Arvensis, Hypericum Triquetrifolium Turra or Scabiosa Atropurpurea.
