Manteco on THE INDUSTRY.FASHION
French fashion and lifestyle brand IKKS Paris joined forces with Italian textile house Manteco to produce a peacoat crafted from recycled MWool. With sustainability in mind, IKKS Paris’ AW22 collection offers an eco-conscious solution for winter dressing with its latest peacoat. The classic silhouette, which was originally worn by sailors, is rendered in MWool, which is a new generation of recycled wool made in Manteco’s studios in Italy. Similarly to natural virgin wool, the innovative and sustainable fibre is soft, breathable, and heat-regulating. It is the first-ever recycled wool to be certified by the Environmental Product Declaration and boasts fully circular zero-waste. This means its production is 99.2% less impacting on climate change and consumes 93.3% less energy compared to generic virgin wool fibres.
