2017 Eco-Initiatives

Credited from our in-house labs and several major denim brands, Our new concentrated Liquid Indigo and Eco-Finishing–alternative to mercerization —have proven themselves to be the most advanced for sustainable denim production in the current marketplace. Over 1 year, Liquid Indigo would eliminate 700,000 lbs of Sodium Hydrosulphate from being dumped in the environment. Eco-Finishing would save up to 40 million gallons of water!

Eco-Fibers

More importantly than ever, with denim prevailing as the go-to bottom weight fabric, Twin Dragon has a great desire to leave a positive footprint on the planet. Given there is a marketable opportunity , as the demand grows for fashion goods to emulate sustainable and eco-friendly properties, so does that desire trickle down to our roots of development. Realizing we have a responsibility to future generations, we have developed fabrics using fibers made from trees of sustainable forests and polyester from recycled plastic.

From Austrian based, Lenzing, Tencel® is utilized in many of our premium denim development processes because of its soft and smooth hand and higher absorbency rates than cotton. Additionally, Tencel® has main ecological advantages, being less toxic to cultivate than cotton or polyester has on water and soil in the environment.  Additionally, Tencel® is made from raw material wood, stems from forest plantations which practice sustainability.

Polyester is a viable fiber specifically utilized in high stretch denims and twills to provide strength for recovery support.  Manufactured in USA, by Unifi, Repreve® is made from 100% recycled polyester harvested from plastic bottles.  In comparison to virgin polyester, Repreve® conserves resources and offsets the need to use newly refined crude oil, reducing energy consumption by over 66%.  7 plastic water bottles = The amount of recycled polyester in one of our womens core stretch denims.

Our FOREVER denims are made possibly by special sustainable cellulose Modal® COLOR fibers, dyed in the solvent stage, to create the most supreme colorfastness. These eco-friendly specialty denims FOREVER BLACK ® and FOREVER WHITE® therefore need no additional dying, saving water, eliminating unnecessary pollutants in addition to saving the customer money in the laundering process.

Latest Stretch Innovations

the stretch denim standard for years has been a blend of cotton and Lycra® – provided great stretch but did not maintain the jean’s shape, with our dual core blends with Lycra® T400® – it solves that issue. Since 2012, Twin Dragon had fully invested in the capabilities of dual-core technology that has revolutionized stretch jeans by providing the recovery needed to prevent sagging and bagging in stress prone areas.

Specialty Performance Fibers

Comfort has been increasingly important in the denim sector. Specialty fibers that can cool or provide warmth, popular in athletic wear, now are being utilized in capsule denim collections.

Performance Fibers

Cooling properties have been in athleisure and sportswear for some years now. Only makes sense that when surveyed recently, consumers would like to see these properties in their jeans-wear as well.
Our performance denim uniquely blends Sorbtek® and Repreve®-poly fibers-both come from our Affiliate, Unifi, an American manufacturer– that ingeniously unites temperature regulation functionality and eco-conscious sustainability. This combination creates strong denim that provides cooling and does the Earth some good.
