Gregal EcoDesign is a sustainable fashion project that has the Mediterranean Sea as the axis of all its collections . Since 2018, it has been researching indigenous fabrics from the Mediterranean basin and modernizing original garments from the region.
In Gregal EcoDesign we value exclusivity , avoiding having stock and betting on tailor-made clothing . Each piece is handmade on demand, following the processes of creating artisan patterns.
For the summer of 2021 we have launched the Bona Mar collection where sustainable fabric is joined by sublimation printing, one of the most ecological techniques that exist today. And, although the summer has not passed, we are already thinking about the 2022 campaign and we are considering expanding the market in order to reach more people and raise awareness of the great problem that exists on the seabed . For this we need your help to continue with the expansion process and create a more sustainable and conscious future.
Description of the project. Main features, strengths and differentials.
Made with fabric that comes from nets and plastics extracted from the seabed to raise awareness of the problems that exist with the excessive use of plastics and nets abandoned at the bottom of the sea.
Work together with NGOs to recover the seabed and its fauna and flora . We are concerned not only with what the sea kills, but with what remains alive. That is why we collaborate with NGOs that take care of the fauna and flora of the Mediterranean Sea.
Recover artisanal sewing techniques . We are contemporary artisans and our work follows the thread of the first weavers that existed.
Recover autochthonous tissues from the Mediterranean basin. The Mediterranean, as the cradle of civilization, has always been rich in cottons, silks, linens ... an industry that has been disappearing until it is almost residual and at Gregal Ecodesign we want to give these fabrics the place they deserve and that they should never have. stop occupying.
Promote employment and the economy in rural areas.
Why this is important
The project is aimed at people who care about what they wear , about the fabrics that touch their skin . Who have a special sensitivity to environmental problems and want to do their bit to help improve the environment in which they live.
The project is established in Artana , a town in the Sierra de Espadán, in Castellón. The commitment to rural development of the Gregal EcoDesign project and the concern to recover Mediterranean artisan techniques made it the optimal place to develop it.
In addition, Gregal EcoDesign collaborates with the NGO Xaloc by donating € 1 for each sale for its seahorse hospital located in Valencia.
