Spinnova collaborates with Hyères-awarded Finnish designer Sofia Ilmonen

Spinnova and Sofia Ilmonen presented a collaborative collection made with innovative, wood-based SPINNOVA® fibre.

Innovative fashion with sustainable fibres

The collection was presented at Woodspin’s factory opening, the first commercial-scale facility producing SPINNOVA®. The fabric in all garments is 20% SPINNOVA® and 80% cotton, including the shoes. The navy-colored fabric has been woven in Finland and dyed with reactive dyeing and treated with enzyme treatment.

Sofia Ilmonen, Designer

”This collection demonstrates how a circular, wood-based fibre can be woven into something delicate and elegant. Working with Spinnova’s sustainable fibre is a dream collaboration for me.”

Diana Balanescu, Global Brand Director at Spinnova

”The design enables longevity for garments, which is a shared value between the designer Sofia Ilmonen and Spinnova. In addition to being created from sustainable fibres, future garments can also be adjusted to create different silhouettes.”

Transformable garments

The garments are designed from 6-16 modules, creating three different silhouettes. The collection is transformable, meaning that multiple garments can be created from the same modules. The mini collection was inspired by the material itself enhanced with Sofia’s feminine aesthetics. The modular structure enables the clothes to be sizeless and the concept also follows a zero waste pattern cutting method.
