Materials make the difference

Materials make the difference

Our materials are the driving force behind Future Humans. We strive to offer you the most cutting edge, recycled, organic and synthetic materials. We search the planet to find the best providers, the most innovative labs, and the revolutionary experiments that will change the future. We find inspiration in these materials. We look for new ways that you can impact the future wearing recycled material everyday.

Recycled fishing nets

Fishing nets are some of the most commonly found sea waste.

Every year hundreds of thousands of marine animals – such as sea turtles, seals, dolphins and whales – are harmed by ocean plastic pollution. Abandoned plastic fishing nets are a significant part of the problem. These nets can travel long distances from their points of origin and can remain in the ocean long after they are discarded, resulting in the entrapment and death of marine mammals, sea birds and fish. The result is an increasingly critical global threat to marine life.

In any case, incorporating as much recycled nylon as we can lessens our dependence on petroleum as a raw material source. It curbs discards, thereby prolonging landfill life and reducing toxic emissions from incinerators. It helps promote new recycling streams for nylon products that are no longer usable. And it causes less air, water, and soil contamination compared to using non-recycled nylon
 

Recycled Cork

The same reason cork keeps wine in the bottle, it keeps water out of your jacket. We recycle cork to make impermeable coating.

Cork is a natural and biodegradable material made from the bark of Cork Oak Trees. It can be recycled into a range of products such as cork boards, coasters, and flooring.

Partnering with the most advanced laboratories of research in new textiles we have developed the patented coating, B.Cork. B.Cork is a hi-tech lamination of a water based coating that is completely formaldehyde and solvent free polymer conferring a great look with a natural, supersoft touch that is breathable and waterproof. This unique coating makes our Vegan leather jackets completely impermeable.

Recycled PET Bottles

That plastic bottle you recycled last year? It might be in your new t-shirt!
we are using the equivalent of 1.5 planets worth of natural resources (WWF) .

Every year we continue to extract new raw materials to create products that most likely end up in landfill, where they take centuries to decompose.
We partner with the most advanced laboratories to research and develop techniques to turn waste into yarns and textiles. This way we can recycled and regenerated existing materials and give them a second life.

Plastic bottles can be recycled into a new nylon yarn that is exactly the same quality as virgin nylon. The bottles are grinded, melted and afterwards extruded into new fibers. This way we are able to make waste into new fabric and clothes, reducing CO2 emissions, water usage, and the most important, creating a positive impact by reducing existing waste and contamination. Since it is not possible to process this products in a chemical free process, the process of manufacturing we use it is in a closed loop where no chemicals are released into nature.
 

TENCEL®

Tencel is considered one of the most sustainable textiles on earth. An innovative and completely ecological fabric obtained from Eucalyptus trees.

Tencel it is obtained from eucalyptus trees that are grown on farms specially dedicated to this. They are never obtained from old growth forests, free from genetic manipulation, and with very little need of irrigation. No pesticides are used so for all these reasons Tencel fibers are obtained from one of the highest sustainable resources of raw material. These forests and the pulp produced for Tencel have earned the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification that the products come from socially and environmentally responsible forests.

On the other hand, the chemicals used to produce the fibers are nontoxic. In addition, the cellulose or ground pulp used for Tencel is treated in what is known as a closed loop process in which these solvents are recycled with a recovery rate of 99.5%. The tiny amount of remaining emissions is decomposed in biological purification plants. Because of the nature of the material, the processing never requires bleach. This overall method of manufacturing fabric was awarded with the “European Award for the Environment” by the European Union.

TENCEL® has a soft, smooth finish, drapes well and absorbs moisture.
