YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2021-08-10 14:11:56 – USA

Kindly, a new sustainable intimates line, debuts today with the world's first plant-based bra cup made from Brazilian sugarcane. Kindly, which is only available at Walmart, is on a mission to make sustainability accessible to everyone. Its product line includes a variety of eco-friendly bras and underwear manufactured from recycled materials, as well as a pledge to never force customers to pick between function, planet, or price. The collection will be available in 3,300 Walmart stores as well as on Walmart.com.

Yossi Nasser, the CEO, said that they're thrilled to bring the world's first plant-based bra cup to market, and humbled by the opportunity to speak to Walmart's wide and diverse audience. When it came to selecting a retail partner, Walmart was a no-brainer for them. They're thrilled to bring the world's first plant-based bra cup to market, and humbled by the opportunity to speak to Walmart's wide and diverse audience. It's essential to them that Kindly is renowned not simply for high-quality products, but also for fostering a movement toward a more environmentally conscious and accessible lifestyle for everyone.

Kindly seeks to bring the worlds of sustainability, accessibility, and innovation together by creating breakthrough goods using a proprietary combination of recycled nylon, spandex, elastic, and sugarcane. The collection has gone through over 30 versions of trials, testing, moulding, and wear tests over the course of three years.

Eve Bastug, Chief Product Officer, said that this was the hardest project he’ve worked on in his 40+ years in the business - and it definitely feels the most gratifying. It took them three years to work towards a cup that is over 80% plant-based" Although there is still much work to be done, their team is working to build a more sustainable future with beautifully crafted products that people can feel good about wearing.

Kindly will debut two kinds of bras (in sizes 34A-40DD), three styles of bralettes (in sizes S-3XL), and thongs, hipsters, and boyshorts (in sizes XS-3XL) in both seamless and micro construction. The price range for the line will be $11-$14 USD.

Denise Incandela, Walmart's Executive Vice President of Apparel and Private Brands, said that at Walmart, they're always looking for new ways to produce goods that are committed to sustainability. Their goal was to create an exclusive bra that was built with the environment in mind, and Gelmart worked diligently to build a game-changing invention for the intimates sector that gives their clients a breakthrough sugarcane bra cup.

The silhouettes were created with the idea of a post-pandemic existence in mind. Consumer demand for all-day wearability and hybrid designs is increasing; non-wire, seamless styles, and circular knitting were significant features in this collection. Color palettes and patterns were inspired by Earth's components of air, water, and fire, providing customers with a multisensory experience ranging from animal and palm prints to hues identifiable in marbled seas and ombré sunsets.

Caroline Limpert, Chief Marketing Officer, said that they pay attention to market trends, and in this post-pandemic era, people demand comfort and care far more about our planet than ever before. Gelmart has taken a significant step ahead in democratic sustainability thanks to the kindly collection. They’ve launched kindly with the goal of creating and cultivating a deep relationship with like-minded consumers who are enthusiastic about helping the world.
