QR code on the washlist makes upcycling transparent for customers

Each part of the current upcycling collection has a QR code that leads interested parties to a website. All details of the manufacturing process and the materials are listed there. The fashion label founded in Italy in 1978 makes the upcycling process of its new collection extremely transparent. The manufacturing process is meticulously documented. The buyer can then trace it back from A to Z using the QR code on the washing slip. The upcycling of denim, polyester and spandex reduces the consumption of raw materials. It also reduces air and water pollution, greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption.

BRAND GUIDE

The Diesel Upcycling Collection includes hooded jackets, T-shirts, bags and sports jackets

Highlights of the upcycling collection include, for example, a hooded jacket made from recycled denim and cotton sweatshirt fabric. The hood and cuffs come from a sweater made of cotton sweatshirt fabric. D-MESO & MESO, a recycled T-shirt with the “55DSL” logo, also offers a very special look. This is where the classic "55DSL" logo meets the Iroquois logo in the middle.
