ECOALF is born to prove that a truly sustainable fashion brand is possible without sacrificing aesthetics. Where others see trash, the brand sees potential luxury goods. Thanks to the most advanced technologies in recycling, ECOALF transforms wasted materials like fishing nets, plastic bottles, tires and even coffee leftovers into high quality fabrics and then into designer clothes.
Their goal is to create the first generation of 100% recycled plastic fashion products with the same quality, design, and technical properties as the non-recycled ones. Through their clothing, they are showing the world that there is no need to use our planet’s natural resources carelessly.
ECOALF started in Spain; the proximity to the Mediterranean Sea made them think about giving a second opportunity to these materials that instead would stay in our oceans for over 400 years. The brand uses all the plastic materials and fishing nets hiding on the seabed as the primary material.
The recycling process couldn’t be possible without the help of the fishing men, who carefully separate the plastic rubbish from the fishes. To date ECOALF is present in 54 ports, counts with 3,000 fishermen and has recovered 700 tonnes of waste (data 2021).
