Baykan Moda on Driving Responsible Denim Production

Baykan Moda’s creative director Aylin Erel shares with Carved in Blue how to create a more sustainable denim supply chain.

The Turkey-based denim garment maker, which produces apparel for giants like Arcadia Group and Inditex, is working to reduce the industry’s carbon footprint with eco-responsible materials and manufacturing equipment. Baykan Moda uses sustainable fibers, including TENCEL™ and TENCEL™ x Refibra™ branded lyocell fibers, in its jeans, while ozone technology machines enable it to use up to 90 percent less water in its denim production process.
