Ecoalf arose in 2009 from the founder’s frustration with the excessive use of the world’s natural resources and the amount of waste produced by industrialized countries. Ecoalf symbolizes what they believe the fabrics and products of the new generations should be, a new fashion/lifestyle brand that integrates breakthrough technology to create clothing and accessories made entirely from recycled materials with the same quality, design and technical properties as the best non-recycled products. The brand has collaborated with various companies and designers to create a range of beautiful conscious garments.

They use fabrics from recycled plastic bottles, recycled cotton, used tyres, recycled more than 60 tonnes discarded fishing nets, recycled wool and post consumer coffee grounds.
They use natural fibers like hemp and Tencel.
The brand is not using leather in its collections anymore, because they can not guarantee total traceability and to ensure the non use of crome in the chromium during the leather tanning process.
They are working in its own List of Restricted Substances. They has decided to stop using C6 in its water repellent finishing. Instead of C6 Ecoalf is using the C0, that means Ecoalf´s water repellent fabrics are PFC free (perfluorocarbons free).
They use organic cotton.
The Ecoalf Foundation has undertaken its most ambitious project to date: Upcycling the Oceans is an unprecedented global adventure that will help rid the oceans of rubbish through partnership with fishermen.
