    What makes Arcane’s fabric so special?

We only use high quality materials that are OEKO TEX 100 Certified!

Solid colors with CO2control®, a production concept towards more environmentally friendly products and offering UV protection 50+

The OEKO-TEX® tests for harmful substances are fundamentally based on the respective purpose of the textiles and materials. The more intensive the skin contact of a product and the more sensitive the skin, the stricter the human-ecological requirements that need to be complied with Plain colors are also sustainable, with CO2 control certified and 50+ UV protection.

The Light - (CO2)® was the first circular knitted fabric produced with biodegradable nylon 6.6, a Brazilian pioneered technology, in the world. The formulation of this yarn has been enhanced to allow clothing made from it quickly decompose after disposal in landfills. The breakdown that took decades to occur in nylon (polyamide generic name) now 50% already happens in the first year and less than three years is already fully decomposed. This biodegradable nylon named AMNI Soul Eco® was researched and developed by Rhodia®, a company of Solvay® group. The Light -(CO2)® is an article of CO2control® family, a production concept of Santaconstancia towards more environmentally friendly products. Visually smoothly textured and elasticized structure is a knitted fabric of extreme comfort next to skin and pleasant in everyday use, offering UV protection 50+ and being free from toxic to human skin according international standard Oeko-Tex 100 Class I.
