We've been developing high end faux fur for more than 300 top fashion brands which have stopped using the real fur.
No brand, no company, no institution can argue against the fact that faux fur should replace all animal furs.
Everybody is instinctively attached to the sweet feeling of animal fur and its natural beauty. However many are appalled by the way animal fur is produced in factory farms. Thanksfully today, technologies and innovations allow us to have new ways to design amazing and ethical alternatives to fur.
Long an advocate for innovation, and committed to environmental protection and corporate social responsibility, ECOPEL aims to make a difference in the textile and apparel industry and wants to add its positive contribution to the way fashion is created.
ECOPEL is a global faux fur textile and apparel manufacturer with a vertically integrated supply chain that straddles from fabric to garments, and a workforce of 950 people, with manufacturing facilities in China and sales offices servicing markets all around the world.
For more than 15 years ECOPEL's engineers have been looking for innovative solutions for ease of maintenance, cleaning and all aspects regarding the softness, warmth and durability of faux fur.
Created exclusively by Ecopel in collaboration with Stella McCartney, KOBA® is the first bio-based fur available on the market. It is a new generation of fur incorporating fibers from corn waste and the beginning of a journey towards new ways to create faux fur.
Ecopel is a GRS certified company. GRS is an international, voluntary standard that establishes third-party certification criteria for recycled content, chain of custody, social and environmental practices, and chemical composition restrictions.
PETA focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: in the food industry, in the clothing trade, in laboratories, and in the entertainment industry.
Since 1957, Kaneka Corporation has been committed to the on-going development and production of a range of modacrylic fibers, named Kanecaron. Natural handle, real-fur touch and appearance combined to high levels of safety and versatility are the most essentials elements that have made Kanecaron a pioneer in the field of fake-fur, and their products continues to cross new frontiers.
Our recycled faux fur is Oeko Tex certified standard 100.
The raw material we source for our Modacrylic options or our KOBA® bio-based options come from OekoTex certified suppliers. It is the insurance of the respect of highest environmental standards regarding the substances used for these options.
ECOPEL is proud to be a licence holder of the SEAQUAL INITIATIVE, a unique collaborative community helping to fight marine plastic pollution.
Taking recycling to a new level, we are unveiling soon our first ever line of recycled faux fur made using the SEAQUAL yarn resulting from the cleaning of the oceans.
This initiative is a part of Make A Change, our environmental strategy launched in 2020.
