The New Jeans Redesign Collection by Crystal Denim

Hong Kong – Crystal International Group Limited (“Crystal International”) officially unveiled the new Jeans Redesign Collection on the market and is committed to continuing the positive steps with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and more than 90 industry leaders to scale up denim circularity in the foundation’s Jeans Redesign project. As Crystal’s commitment to driving circular economy, the new Jeans Redesign Collection aligns with the Jeans Redesign Guidelines developed by 80 denim experts, an industry-wide effort to provide minimum requirements on garment durability, material health, recyclability, and traceability.

The jeans in this collection are made with 98% organic cotton, mushroom-derived finishing, and no rivets, which means they are 100% recyclable. In accordance with the Jeans Redesign Guidelines, the fabrics are sourced from organic and responsible methods, in which the organic materials are certified with the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). Using advanced laser technology and Wet G2 (oxidation) with alternative environmentally friendly chemicals, the eco production process can save as much water as possible when compared with the conventional eco wash method and can reduce chemical footprints during overall bleaching process. The chemicals used are complied with Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) Manufacturing Restricted Substance List (MRSL). Traditional finishing processes, such as conventional electroplating, potassium permanganate (PP), stone finishing, and sand blasting are also prohibited to reduce environmental impacts and protect workers’ health.

The new circular products with high quality and “low environmental impact” can withstand a minimum of 30 home laundries while retaining the test standard of durability. In addition, with the components designed to be disassembled for reuse and recycling and correct labelling, it enables easy identification of jeans to facilitate effective collection, sorting, and recycling processes.

Commenting on this collection, Mr Miles Lam, Assistant General Manager of Product Development of Crystal Denim, stated, “We have been working continuously with the manufacturing partners and customers to rethink the denim design and production to create fully circular products, while demonstrating our ongoing commitment to eliminate wastes and reduce harmful chemicals and pollution. In 2021, we worked with a customer to introduce more than 40 styles, over 230,000 pairs of Jeans Redesign jeans to protect the planet together”.

As a signatory of the Jeans Redesign project, Crystal International remains ambitious and is committed to ensuring jeans are designed to be used more, made to be made again, and made from safe and recycled materials, and better for the environment and the health of garment workers. The Jeans Redesign Report published this year shared the successes of the industry players to improve jeans production, barriers, solutions, and innovation gaps faced by other participants in creating circular jeans since the launch of this project in 2019, all these enable Crystal International to learn from the stories of other participants.

Crystal International will keep redesigning jeans to the market and build on this growing momentum to fashion circularity.
