+ And also: Alsoft® Amazontex
This natural, ecological and sustainable finish is derived from Cupuaçu, a fruit obtained directly from cooperatives in the Brazilian Amazon. Silicon-free, hypoallergenic and biodegradable, the finish produces a softening effect and improves comfort by absorbing moisture and solar radiation.
Royo’s key concept for next season

Neovintage by ISKO
ISKO™ (Turkey) presented at Denim by Première Vision the special “Neo Vintage concept“. Neovintage reflects the combination of vintage story with high-tech finishes. The effect of usage throughout the years are given to the fabrics with the help of unique treatments: Turbotech™ patented by ISKO™.
With the special weave and indigo dyeing process, the garments made with Turbotech™ quickly take on a vintage, stone-washed effect look that’s always changing. After a few washes the garments fade.
Neovintage is one of the most important concept which ISKO™ really keen on. Fabrics are constructed by old yarn characters and latest ISKO™ finish techniques applications and they offer a dirty, shadowy look that meets a techno touch and natural brightness with vintage construction.
ISKO™ focused combining old and new hot aspects in denim to re-interpret the vintage soul in a modern and update way offering a neo-vintage concept.
Orta Blu: a network to promote sustainability
Orta Blu, the sustainability division of Orta Anadolu(Turkey) , aims to communicate Orta’s efforts to save energy in their processes, and to develop an extensive global community dedicated to social and sustainability issues. One of its operations is launching a hands-on global ‘Social Missions’ using Orta products in collaboration with NGOs around the world. One example is the creation of school uniforms for children in Sierra Leone. Since 2005, Orta has been pursuing a number of “Best Practices” in energy and water conservation. The most visible result is a notable decrease in energy consumption per unit of production. A review of energy records shows a roughly 20% reduction in electricity and gas per metre of denim produced.
US Denim Mills: a forerunner in the field of sustainable denims
US denim mills is a denim company from Pakistan with great products.The company has been working hard to optimize the idea of recycling denim. The first ideas of recycling old jeans proved to be impractical for various reasons, mainly consistency. The use of waste from the denim cutting tables proved to be more controllable and more consistent. This reprocessed fibre is used to spin yarn that is reworked into denim. The recycled yarn also requires new dyeing techniques, resulting in unique denim with a unique cast.
