Before starting a new collection we first source our fabrics. At the start of each new fashion season, designer Audrey Wyckmans and the design team start looking for unique, high quality fabrics with a luxurious feel. The fabrics typically used by Gigue also play a key role as part of our sustainability commitment.
For the Fall-Winter 2023 season, we went one step further in our focus on materials, with our sustainability approach in mind. The result? This season, 27% of Gigue designs contain at least 30% of certified sustainable fibres. You will recognise these garments in the Gigue boutiques and our online shop thanks to a unique logo.
The recycled cotton in the Gigue collection is made with pima cotton left over from luxury home linen production that's re-spun into yarns. This pure, top-quality source material guarantees a premium end product. You'll find it this season in knitted jumpers and elegant patterned tops.
Recycled polyester is made from PET, such as plastic bottles. Those fibres are spun into new yarns. Recycled polyester retains its unique properties as a raw material. It resists shrinkage and holds colours well, an exquisite material for a flowing blouse in a rich colour.
The certified recycled nylon in our collection is made from 'pre-consumer waste' – scrap from textile production, that’s collected and reprocessed first into fibres, then textile yarns and finally high-quality nylon fabrics. This high-tech material takes on a soft, feminine feel in our collection.
The more sustainable viscose variant in our blouses, dresses and tops is made from wood pulp that is sourced from sustainable European forests. This wood pulp is converted into viscose fibre using chemicals in a closed-loop-process.
The production of this more sustainable variant uses up to 50% less energy and water compared to conventional viscose. It also uses purified water to ensure a process that considers the well-being of employees and the environment.
Organic cotton has the same qualities as conventional cotton but with a smaller environmental impact. Organic cotton is grown from non-GM seed without the use of pesticides, insecticides or chemical fertilisers.
Organic cotton farmers use authentic agricultural methods such as crop rotation and mixed farming methods which are better for the soil. These natural growing methods protect the environment and the organic farmers from exposure to harmful substances.
