The Process

The mission is to reduce apparel waste

Normal performance apparel

Made from traditional polyamides they take decades and even centuries to decompose. Adding to the accumulation of apparel waste and pollution.

DULO performance apparel

The fabric used to create the DULO Sustainable Performance Dress Shirts and Polos is 100% naturally biodegradable. It decomposes within only 3 years and becomes food for bacteria, once disposed of in a landfill. We also use natural materials, such as corozo wood for the buttons, recycled sewing threads for the stitching, and a recycled 100% plastic-free paper packaging to complete the product experience.

We strongly believe that by leveraging modern fabric technology we can substantially reduce the negative impact on the environment and the amount of waste which is passed on to future generations.

The manufacturing process

It all begins with the creation of the fabric. Our manufacturing partners reuse water and treat greenhouse gases before they are released into the environment in order to protect the ozone layer and nature.

Durability to wear more and buy less

All the key performance features have been preserved in order to ensure you look sharp, perform well, and feel good while doing good for the planet. 4-way stretch offers natural free movement while aquamove technology is incorporated for sweat-wicking and quick-drying. Silver ions coating is applied for antibacterial properties and odor-resistance so you don’t have to worry about armpit stains or unpleasant smells. The properties of the shirt make it durable and long-lasting so you don’t have to buy new as often, enabling you to reduce waste.

The afterlife

Biodegrading is the real solution to true long-term sustainability, yet it’s not enough to create apparel that’s only 100% biodegradable. We want to take it a step further. We aim to create a network of environmentally conscious partners that we can rely on for the afterlife of the products, such as recycling the product for a reusable thread or anything else that might be useful in producing new products without the need for new production.
