ecoviscosa
In recent years, developed new sustainable viscose such as ECOVERO™, more respectful of the planet than normal viscose. Wood and cellulose from certified and controlled forests are used, which are treated with chemical products that are later reused (to avoid discarding them) or non-toxic solvents. This process reduces up to 50% the environmental impact of its emissions and the use of water during its manufacture thanks to the fact that the forests are next to the factories and the reuse of the products used.

Now that you know a little more about the textiles used, we encourage you to look at the composition of the product before buying it . At Kyklikós, we put all the information in the Sustainability and Materials section of each product.
