In the new season of Katia Fabrics SS22, we could not miss our contribution of sustainable fabrics and continue betting on responsible consumption and production that is kinder to our planet. There are already more than 12 types of fabrics that have some of the environmentally and socially responsible textile certifications. Such as BCI (Better Cotton Initiative), EcoVero Lenzing, Lyocell or Global Recycled Standard (GRS). Organic cotton, Ecoviscose, Lyocell (Tencel), or recycled polyester from plastic bottles to create current, fresh, and breathable fabrics. Like the surprising Curled Cotton with a towel touch, the light Ice Cream Stripes Cotton, or the modern Jeans Recycled Canvas Print or Recycled Canvas Stripes.
