Eco Facts (old)

Many of you may know that the fashion industry is one of the largest polluters of our planet. Yet, what you may not know, is that the problem is not just the endless piles of clothes. Rather, it starts at the very beginning of the manufacturing process of all garments - even underwear! This is the manufacturing process of a regular garment:

  • Harvest & manmade fibers

  • Spinning yarn

  • Weaving & knitting

  • Dyeing & finishing

  • Cut & sew

  • International haul & distribution

  • Consumer & end of use (landfills)

Major polluting steps in this process: Dyeing & Finishing Responsible for 25% of the world’s energy consumption and CO2 pollution (1% of energy consumption generates 1% of CO2 pollution!) Contributes to 20% of industrial freshwater pollution (1Kg of textiles requires 100 litre of fresh water!) Cut & Sew 20%-40% of cut fabrics are not even used, creating an enormous amount of waste

In contrast, this is the manufacturing process of Cosyflex® Knickers:

  • Bio-based finbers & polymers producers


  • Straight to your door

  • Biodegradable

In our process, the Dyeing and Cutting steps are avoided, leading to: A 99% reduction in water consumption. The use of dope-dyeing, a significantly more eco-friendly and efficient process, allows us to decrease our water consumption by 66% A 99% reduction in waste production Our unique 3D printing step creates the garment in its intended shape, replacing the Cut & Sew step All textile waste generated in one cycle is used in the consecutive cycle A 65% reduction in CO2 emission. All of our products are manufactured in the UK and are sold locally Cosyflex® manufactures finished products within seconds,consuming only a very small amount of energy
