Zara recently announced that it will use only sustainable fabrics in all collections by 2025. The first collection to be released after this announcement is the Zara Edited series. In an effort to reduce waste and energy usage, the clothes are made from either recycled cotton that gives fabric a second life, naturally grown organic cotton in order to preserve biodiversity or produced with water saving processes to converse energy.
The 28-piece range includes items for women, men and kids. Denim pieces for women include a boyfriend-fit jacket, a cropped jacket, ripped shorts, a zip-up hoodie, a structured tote bag, a crewneck sweater and a series of jeans ranging from skinny to wide leg in black, blue and white-washes. Not only are the pieces sustainably made, but they’re customizable. Shoppers can choose to embroider one word up to nine letters long in various fonts, thread colors and locations on the piece.
The Zara Edited collection is available starting today online in the U.S., Spain, China, UK, the Netherlands and Italy and in select Zara retail stores.
