Nobody wants to feel guilty wearing something that harms the planet

all 100% cotton (50% recycled, 50% organic)

SS23 Iqoniq collection is only using a blend of recycled and organic cotton.

Why a blend?

Because fibres, generated from the recycling process of cotton waste are too short and not strong enough. Therefore we mix the recycled cotton fibers with high quality organic cotton fibres to enhance the yarn strength and thus ensure a better fabric quality. This is valid for our 100 % cotton fabrics in single jersey and pique, that are available in a blend of 50% recycled cotton and 50% organic cotton.

Our sweatshirts and joggers are made with in a 3-thread sweat fabric with soft brushing on inside, where all 3 threads (yarns) are also a blend of 50% recycled cotton and 50% organic cotton. This is a unique fabric available on our market !

With our recycled/organic blend we take the chance to use up the textile waste, that otherwise would have to be destroyed in an unsustainable way. And in the same time we leave a bit more field free to grow other crops than an organic cotton.

Aware™ makes data public to track and validate the end-to-end impact of sustainable textiles from origin to consumer. The Aware™ process begins with embedding a physical tracer in the sustainable textile at source. Scanning, using the Aware™ hand scanner, enables instant verification along the entire value chain. Production data logged on public blockchain by every supplier creates a digital twin and virtual flow that follows the physical material flow forward. Every step is validated by Aware™’s digital tokens – the world’s first crypto TCs. This innovative platform transforms a system hidden behind private databases into a democratic, open and user friendly platform. With a quick scan of a QR code on the label of a product, shoppers can access the Aware™ Virtual ID, which is a digital product passport (DPP) showing all data and making choosing better easier.


The raw materials we used are certified

Our recycled cotton is certified to the Global Recycled Standard.
Certified by Control Union 116221.

Our organic cotton is certified to the Organic Content Standard.

OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 is one of the world’s best-known labels for textiles tested for harmful substances.

Every Iqoniq article is OEKO-TEX® certified, so you can be certain that every component (every thread and accessory) has been tested for harmful substances and that the article therefore is harmless for human health.

The nature of recycled cotton – impurities and colour variation

Our recycled cotton is made from cutting waste supplied from local markets close by to where our factories are located. This waste is collected from different factories, different fabrics, different productions.

Cutting waste is separated by colour and then manually cleaned from any foreign materials. However, some impurities may still remain inside the waste and may show up in limited extend later on in the final fabric appearance. For example a bit darker or a bit thicker yarn. These impurities enhance the nature of the recycled product and should be seen as an asset, not as a defect.

The final shade of recycled cotton fabric depends on the initial colour assortments of the waste.
Especially our undyed heather colours and the natural raw colour are made with completely water free processes, and therefore may have some slight colour variations between different pieces.

We believe that both, impurities and colour shading,
prove the true story of our recycled process.
