Polypropylene is one of those most versatile polymers available with applications
Stone Island, a market leader in fabric innovation and technology have designed a range of denim cloth that weaves a polypropylene yarn into an indigo dyed cotton warp. The result is an impeccable denim tela with a drastically reduced weight: it has the look of a 19 ounces material but weighs only 10.
This outstanding treatment gives a new look to the jumpsuit, the outerwear pieces, the trousers and backpack have undergone the dark treatment, a manual sanding and light stonewash as well as an enzyme wash.
The Indigo knit is also used in weaving yarns, an innovative technique from the knitwear industry. For this project a yarn was especially created from indigo dyed polypropylene and cotton yarn with chain construction.
