Keep it organic

According to a Pitti Bimbo report, using sustainable, eco-friendly, organic materials is key this season. Yarn is obtained by recycling ocean plastics or PET bottles or made of 100% regenerated polyamide fibers. Then the garments are packaged in recycled paper and sugar cane. A few designers including Ecoco kids, La Ormiga kids and Martin Aranda kids showed playful ditsy prints on organic cotton grounds.
