For winter 21-22 Save The Duck, an Italian brand that specialises in 100% animal-free and 100% cruelty-free outerwear, presents its new We Love Nature sustainable garment line made using Dust fabric – one of the brand’s exclusive products – involving the use of cutting-edge biodegradable 6.6 polyamide Amni Soul Eco yarn. 

Amni Soul Eco is based on research by the Solvay Group and is distributed exclusively in Europe by Fulgar – a Made in Italy leader in the high-tech and eco-sustainable yarn sectors. It offers truly revolutionary biodegradation performance, and if correctly disposed of in a special anaerobic tip, Amni Soul Eco biodegrades in around five years, Fulgar claims.

The garments in Save The Duck’s new We Love Nature line are made of 94% biodegradable materials, with full respect for nature and biodiversity, Fulgar says. The result is also enhanced by the choice of padding that is easily disposed of, like soya, it says.

In the words of Nicolas Bargi, founder of the Save the Duck brand: “We are delighted to have found in Amni Soul Eco the right yarn for making our garments even more sustainable, as it respects the environment and is also of extremely high quality. We believe that increasingly advanced research, innovation and production processes are the future of a fashion industry that operates with full respect for nature and biodiversity.”

“We are pleased that the Save The Duck brand has chosen Amni Soul Eco for its first biodegradable clothing collection. It’s an important acknowledgement of our long-standing commitment to research and development that leads to an increasingly green portfolio and an ethical, more sustainable supply chain,” says Fulgar Marketing Manager Daniela Antunes.

The We Love Nature clothing collection will be available from FW21-22.
