The ECODESIGN concept, which has appeared since the early 1960s, plays a fundamental role in the life cycle of a fashion product, from design, production, service life to recycling. The main vectors of ECODESIGN are guided in several directions: the selection of materials and their impact on production - non-toxic natural fiber materials will be used, recyclable rubber, all obtained with low energy consumption; designing models and making samples - these will be produced from material obtained by recycling used textile fibers with a high durability and low weight; production - the aim is to optimize the production process, replacing toxic auxiliary materials with natural ones (natural rubber, water-based adhesives), identification and elimination of toxic emissions, as well as the use of unconventional, solar and wind energy; packaging - it will be made of recycled vegetable fibers and will be designed in such a way as to protect the product as well as possible without damaging it. All these vectors will contribute to extending the “life” of the product, offering comfort, durability and eco-efficiency.
