In a world awakening to the urgency of sustainability, with images of the chili desert and other invasive textile waste problems, we at Infantium Victoria have been actively searching many options since our launch. Textile waste is a problem that has many faces. From the cutting waste when making clothing to the garment waste when garments go out of fashion, or become unwearable through tears, stains or other malfunctions.
Sustaining Beauty Through Reuse
At Infantium Victoria, we try to approach waste management not merely as a process; we look at it from our sustainable design philosophy. The brand's unwavering commitment to minimizing waste is embodied in our brand protection policy, a cornerstone that prevents the needless destruction of unsold products. Of course, we have had our share of wrongly produced garments, including one run of t-shirts where the print comes off by washing. But rather than destroying them, we re-designed them into better, functioning garments again, adding a patch of embroidery to give new graphic appeal to the T-shirt.
The Preloved section on our website serves as a testament to our dedication, enabling the reuse of gently worn items. All our customers are invited to add their used Infantium Victoria garments to our platform. This innovative approach breathes new life into preloved garments, championing sustainability without compromising on style.
From Waste to Wonder: Upcycling Redefined
Infantium Victoria's commitment to waste management extends to their atelier in Belgium, where cutting waste from our different European facilities is diligently collected until it can be transformed into something extraordinary. Through the art of upcycling, these discarded fragments are reimagined as intricate designs, breathing new life into what was once considered waste. This approach marries creativity with environmental consciousness, proving that beauty can arise from even the smallest remnants.
Recycling for a Greener Tomorrow
Infantium Victoria's quest for responsible waste management culminates in their dedication to recycling. A pivotal step is finding a recycler who aligns with the brand's ethos, utilizing mechanical recycling methods to transform waste into new yarn. The aim, creating a natural plant yarn born from materials that were once destined for disposal. This practice embodies the circular economy at its finest, turning the cycle of waste into a cycle of renewal.
Green Practices Beyond Fashion
Infantium Victoria's commitment to waste management extends beyond their fashion designs. Within their office and atelier, the brand practices what they preach, diligently recycling paper, metal, and plastic. The team's dedication to sustainability is also evident in their daily routines, with each member equipped with reusable lunchboxes, reducing the need for disposable containers. This holistic approach showcases Infantium Victoria's ethos as a way of life, not just a business strategy.
