Les matières recyclées chez Balzac Paris

Le saviez-vous ? Nous achetons aujourd'hui 60% d'habits en plus qu'il y a quinze ans ! Face aux enjeux environnementaux actuels, l’industrie textile se met au diapason et développe de plus en plus de matières novatrices. À partir de fibres naturelles ou biosourcées, mais aussi… recyclées  !


Chez Balzac Paris, tous les moyens sont bons pour limiter notre impact sur l’environnement. Avant de consommer de nouvelles ressources, nous préférons nous tourner dès que possible vers ce qui existe déjà. Les matières recyclées sont donc au cœur de notre démarche T.P.R (Toujours Plus Responsable). Qu’est-ce que ça change ? On vous en dit plus !

1 - The recycled polyester

Made of Plastic bottles or industrial production falls, he produces 32% less CO2 that the classic polyester and requires much less water than the latter. You can find it in our Adriatic skirt (certifiedGRS (Global Recycled Standard) andOEKO-TEX®) or in the fishnet of our White Fédor sneakers (from plastic bottles). Another detail: our pimples are also also recycled polyester as on our clare or our flood shirt !

2 - The Seaqual™ (recycled polyester)

Another recycled polyester, but particular since this fiber imagined by a Spanish company even has a clean name! Seaqual ™ is a Polyester designed from plastic waste collected in the oceans: It has allowed today to clean600 tonnes of waste ! You can find it in our Penelope t-shirt (50% organic cotton, 50% Seaqual ™) or our flamboyant blouse (certified OEKO-TEX®)

3 - recycled polyamide (Q-Nova®)

Made from nylon waste, the Q-Nova® fiber allowsSave 25 liters of oil and 159 liters of water Compared to virgin nylon! And big advantage: it is as robust as the virgin fiber. Chez Balzac Paris, Our tights are 95% made of OEKO-TEX® recycled polyamide.

4 - recycled leather fiber

It is designed from cutting From our Spanish tannery which is recovered, crushed and mixed with a natural latex. She allows to considerably reduce CO2 emissions linked to the production of virgin leather. You can find recycled leather fiber in our AMIME belt (Camel and Bordeaux version) or our Ziggy wallet (Camel and Bordeaux version).

5 - recycled cotton

It's necessary 11,000 liters of water to produce 1 kilo of cotton : cotton recycling sometimes reduces Up to 98% this water consumption, and does not use No pesticides ! You can find recycled cotton in the composition of our Freedom shirt Rose stripedor that of our Sally skirt Pink striped, made from organic cotton, recycled cotton and recycled polyester, OEKO-TEX® certified.

6 - recycled apple skin

It looks like leather, and yet this material is good vegan ! It is made from Industrial apple waste (Fruit juice industry), mixed with recycled/GRS certified polyester and water -based polyurethane. Our Jimmy jackets and our New black vegan Caesar bagare in recycled apple skin!
