ECOALF IS B CORP™ CERTIFIED
The concept of the brand came after the birth of Javier's son, Alfredo (the company is named after him), when he was reflecting upon the world we would leave to the next generation and his frustration with the excessive use of the world’s natural resources. ECOALF was born in 2009.
The idea was to create a fashion brand that is truly sustainable. By integrating breakthrough technology they create clothing and accessories made entirely from recycled materials…without actually looking like it.
ECOALF exclusively develops fabrics for future generations.

Both recycled fabric and organic fabric are sustainable raw materials.
In ECOALF, they prefer to use recycled fabrics because their negative environmental impact is much lower.
Sustainability is the future of fashion and ECOALF is thankful to the future generations of Millennials and Generation Z sharing their vision to educate communities, as well as demanding sustainability from the industry.
The brand is developing a service to collect ECOALF's used garments to recycle them and give them another use. Additionally, the team is internally investing in R&D to further extend the life cycle of the garments and urge consumers to recycle to close the loop.
