New in our stores is the label Under The Same Sun. After searching far and wide for yoga-, surf- and beach wear that combined their love for fashion with sustainability, the founders of Under the Same Sun decided to start their own brand. Taking matters into their own hands, they created a range of beautiful high end fashionable printed garments using sustainable fabrics, which are made for practice and living.
The collections have a minimum impact, by choosing for timeless cuts and offering good quality styles leaving as little waste as possible. Only low impact textiles such as recycled polyester are used. The collections are designed in Sweden and fairly produced in LA and Portugal.
Some interesting facts on the recycled fabrics Under The Same Sun uses:
Newlife™ premium polyester – made of recycled plastic bottles
Under The Same Sun’s custom made fabric is made of Newlife™ Premium Recycled Polyester. Recycled polyester is made from recycled water bottles and uses 53% less energy and water, and produces 54.6% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than regular polyester. Recycling polyester fabrics decrease environmental impact and less crude oil is taken from earth’s resources – which are already very limited. It also cuts down on energy use, chemical use, waste material and toxic emissions and makes less soil, water and air pollution. Each pair of Under the Same Sun leggings recycles approximately 25 plastic bottles.
Renew Prime is a ”green”, bi-elastic techno-fabric, made of Econyl, polyamide yarn made of 100% recycled material. The high percentage of LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ ensures a perfect fit and a higher shape retention over time, in addition to a correct muscular compression and an excellent power. Renew Prime is made in Italy and the composition is 65% Recycled polyamide and 35% Elastane. Benifits of the fabric: UV protection, pilling resistan, breathalbe, perfect fit and excellent coverage.
