“Drink it, wear it”
Schijvens has an ISO 14001 certificate and from the start she has been in a partnership with a textile yarn producer from Taiwan: Singtex. It produces substances from coffee grounds (S-Cafe) and recycled plastic bottles. With the philosophy that waste does not exist, ‘trash to cash’. Singtex has a designated ‘Bluesign’, which means that the articles are made in an environmentally responsible way (with good dye materials and water management).
S’Cafe’s yarns have the following properties:
- Odour control
- Fast drying (much faster than normal polyester)
- UV protective
- Environmental friendly
This makes S’Cafe a sustainable substance.
