That time of the year when we get to go to the beautiful New York City and participate once again at the incredible Kingpins Show, where all the denim family come together to discuss the latest advances in the field, present its new technologies and collections is here at last!
Don´t forget to visit us at the show, that will take place once again at Basketball City, at Pier 36, 299 South Street NY, on July 6-7.
Sustainability, going green, circularity and Ecology, were the trending topics at the Kingpins Amsterdam Show.
We are living in a time where we have to be extremely careful of our natural resources. Because of the excess of usage, we are running out of them and by our lack of commitment and attention we are improving global warming and deteriorating our beloved world.
In the most recent times the denim industry is creating a lot of effort to put its grain of sand into the world and completely transforming the business into a cleaner and more ecofriendly one.
If you want to know more about the green initiatives denim mills are making adding performance qualities don’t hesitate to click in the link below.
On Global Denim we can read the following excerpt;
“Global Denim also teased a new collection of closed loop denim slated to launch in Fall 2018. The fabric is made with recycled fabrics from its own facilities. The mill is testing fabrics made with up to 70 percent recycled fibers.”
Every time a trade show ends, we can always rely and read the best news and recap of it in the incredible Rivet /sourcing Journal portal.
This great article highlights how denim mills bring the innovation to the brands, providing trend, fit, color and creative directions.
on Global we can read the following:
“Mexico-based Global Denim brought back an expanded B-Touch collection, a range of peached fabric with an ultra soft hand. The mill added indigo to the popular line, which launched last season with black, gray and PFD for garment dye. “Everyone asked for indigo, but it was tricky to get it right because the process scrapes indigo off. We had to find the right balance,” Jake Fraser, Global Denim director of U.S. sales and marketing, said.”

Following a very good Trade show season this year and as sustainability moves forward, Rivet Magazine just released an article talking about water and measures the industry is taking in order to save it and protect it.
We are proud to have Global Denim in between those names wit its very important program called Ecolojean.
You can read the following excerpt: “….That’s also the goal of Mexico-based mill Global Denim, which recently launched a zero-discharge dyeing process called Ecolojean that uses less water and energy than conventional methods require to dye one pair of jeans.
“Instead of passing the denim or thread through water vats and dyeing vats, our Ecolojean process only puts them through dyeing vats and the dye bonds to the fabric without having to go in the water,” explained Anatt Finkler, Global Denim’s creative director. “When you dye conventionally, as much as 25 percent of the dye ends up in the water, but with Ecolojean, 100 percent of the dye that’s applied remains on the yarn.”

This time we featured our newly “into the Blue” Collection, which had great audience response.
You can see our beautiful artwork on the cover of this article as well read the following excerpt out of the article:
“Mexico’s Global Denim, meanwhile showed its eight product categories: Allways (four-way stretch), Warp’d (warp only stretch), RealSoft (Tencel fabrics), Powertek (Lycra fabrics), B-Touch (brushed fabrics), Stretch’d (stretch denims), Rigids and Ecolojean (waterless production). Company rep Anatt Finkler said that people’s interest in the Tencel group was a kind of “anti-trend” against being unable to feel sensory pleasure in an increasingly virtual and online world. “It’s all about the senses,” she noted.
