Garmon Studio by Kemin Industries, the application laboratory of Garmon Chemicals, the company’s textile auxiliaries business unit and the chemical solutions for the denim and fashion industry, has joined the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s Jeans Redesign project in July.
Garmon Studio joins 94 other garment manufacturers, fabric mills, retailers, and brands in Jeans Redesign, including GAP, Levi's, C&A, H&M, Lee, and Guess, in proving its commitment to sustainable chemicals for the garment-finishing industry.
The Jeans Redesign initiative offers a set of guidelines for the denim industry that are based on circular economy principles. Today, 95% of the brands and garment manufacturers that have adopted the rules have effectively banned the use of potassium permanganate, stone finishing, and sandblasting, all of which Garmon Chemicals removed years ago with its sustainable alternatives.
Jeans Redesign, which was launched in 2019, is a strong framework for scaling circular practices and propelling the denim sector ahead. Jeans Redesign, which is supported by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, encourages major brands, mills, and garment manufacturers to transform the way jeans are manufactured.
The Ellen MacArthur Foundation is a multi-industry charity dedicated to the establishment of a circular economy that addresses some of the world's most pressing issues, such as climate change and biodiversity loss.
Kemin Textile Auxiliaries confirms its position as a sustainability leader with Garmon Studio's acceptance into Jeans Redesign and Garmon Chemicals' participation in the Ellen MacArthur Foundation's Community Platform. The company has earned this position through a number of actions, including the development of safer chemicals for the finishing industry, adoption of the ZDHC program and Bluesign® certification, and recently, the creation of the water-savings-made-easy system, Smart Foam.
