0 means: 0% of waste as well 0% of gender and 0% of vulgarity
100 means: we promote a brand that ais to be 100% sustainable in factual terms. This means being 100% factual, 100% clean, 100% inclusive.
Zerobarracento is a gender-neutral outerwear emerging brand engaged in promoting sustainability. Our statement is made using lines which are clean, essential and Italian.
CLEAN: We are using materials coming from certified suppliers and a production chain that is circular and not linear (as well as our shapes).
ESSENTIAL: a look that has no need for needless accessories. Designing outwears means also thinking about the life-cycle of a product. This is why we decided to have no wastes (we have included also the selvedges as an aesthetic plus) and no accessories (no buttons, no zippers, no hooks and eyes), just a few seams.
ITALIAN: we are proudly designed and made in a sustainable Italy. We have used only top-class materials coming from a sustainable production chain developing a full traceability for our products.
The patterns: are developed based on a zero-waste technique that eliminates textile waste at the design stage, an approach that contributes to reduce the use of natural resources. Usually, around 15% of textiles go wasted in the production process of fashion clothes.
