Sustainable clothes, a great alternative for ecologic fashion

Environment is a delicate topic, as there is more consciousness now about the importance of taking care of the resources, and the sustainable clothes are now a great alternative to decrease contamination. The traditional textile production has been evolving to generate less environmental impact, using sustainable textiles, recycling water and using fewer chemicals, which are great news for the world.

Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim, a manufacturer company in Mexico said the following about this topic: “It is very important that we take actions that will help us taking care of the world, only by this, we will be able to reverse a bit of environment damage”.

What are the benefits of wearing sustainable clothes?:

  • Good for the Earth, as the textiles come from crops with no pesticides.
  • Good for people worried by the fair trade.
  • Good for animals, sustainable fashion tries to avoid using animal products.
  • It is easy to take care of, which makes it more economic as you only have to wash them with detergents that would not damage the environment, which is an extra help to the environment care.
  • Sustainable clothes are not only made of products from organic crops, but also from products that are recovered or recycled.

Some of the most recognized brands are now proposing new alternatives on their fashion parades with sustainable or recycled textiles, some fashion trends are also going to the vintage garments, by modifying those old garments on the wardrobes or turning them into different articles. And denim is a great alternative to recycle.

“Sustainable fashion tries to send a message to everyone to create a bigger and better ecologic consciousness, which is a great concept that can establish and unbreakable link between fashion and environment care”, added Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal about this topic.

We all can achieve knowledge

Knowledge

We all can achieve knowledge, in an easy way

The world gets more connected each day, and information is on everybody’s hands, any place, and any time, to maintain and to achieve knowledge is very important in order to accomplish goals on every profession or work.

We need to be open to new ways of thinking, to keep on learning on an innovated way, to think and to able to enter into unknown territories, leaving behind our comfort and our weakness.

Do not be limited to just one topic

Let’s start with a question, when you think of Leonardo da Vinci, which word comes to your mind? Painter? Writer? Architect? He was all that; therefore, the first rule is not to limit your knowledge to a just one topic. Steve Jobs explained that the Apple products were so perfectly designed because he attended to a calligraphy course; he wanted to perform this artistic work to the products of his company.

To exercise knowledge, we must try to eat food that we cannot pronounce, learn 50 words of a foreign language, socialize, learn how to read music, watch a movie on mute mode and try to understand the body language. Bottom line, get out of the comfort area and destroy the general way of thinking.

Failure is needed to success

The main key of the success is failure, if we learn from it, of course. We live a lot of failures during our live but if we learn the lessons we learn to avoid the same mistakes from happening again. Richard Branson, Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg had a lot of failures before they were successful.

Sometimes getting out of the comfort area means to suffer before having the great ideas but hard work really pays off.

Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim, thinks that if you want to be rich you just will need to work for it, for him, hard work does not mean working all day long but to feed our mind and to do different things if we want different results. “Some people think that money is bad, but we can do great things with it, we can help people, we can help our family”, expressed Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal.

Type of threads and their characteristics

If you want to start a sewing project, there are many different types of threads that you can use, to know the different ones, continue reading this article.

“Only threads of great quality can guarantee a good manufactured garment, that is why Grupo Denim works with vendors compromised with the quality of their products, to make sure we only deliver garments that will strictly meet our customer’s specifications”, said Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of this company.

Here are the different threads that you can find:

  • Cotton– This is the most popular thread, as it is easier to find and buy and it is manufactured in different weights, if you are getting this thread, we recommend you the mercerized one, as it is softer and the color is more consistent.
  • Polyester – Covered with cotton, the polyester thread is also known as multipurpose, it has a center made of thread which makes it stronger and elastic and it is perfect to sew natural fibers and weaves.
  • Silk – The 100% silk thread is made in a variety of colors and weights, it has a characteristic brightness that can enhance any look, it is strong and elastic and it is perfect to sew silk and wool.
  • Nylon – This is a very resistant and invisible thread, it is mainly made in two colors: transparent and smoke, and it is great for light fabrics.
  • Metallic – Metallic threads are bright colors, if you have decided to use them, keep in mind you have to take the necessary cautions with your sewing machines as these threads tend to accumulate static electricity.

“Although there are many different types of threads, it is important to only wear those of the highest quality, as this will ensure resistant seams”, added Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal about this topic.

Manufacturer businesses helping Mexico’s growth

Manufacturer businesses are a great opportunity for Mexico’s growth

China has been increasing surprisingly slowly, this country is known as the “manufacturer of the world”, and this is a great opportunity for Mexico to increase its manufacturer base, but this country still has many things to work in first, such as low salaries or infrastructure.

Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim, a manufacturer company in Mexico gave us his thoughts about this topic:

Interivewer: Do you think 2016 would be good for the manufacturer businesses in Mexico?

Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal: Yes, I actually believe 2016 would be the key, it is the perfect opportunity to advance and grow on these type of businesses, and the Government is aware of this and has taken the necessary steps to support this sector.

I: How can Mexico be more competitive in front of China?

SJMV: With better infrastructure, low manufacturing costs used to be China’s main advantage but this has changed over the last years as the costs are higher than Mexico’s.

Germany and the United States are moving their manufacturing services off China to other countries offering lower costs, and Mexico is being benefited by this.

Mexico has the necessary environment to capture many of the manufacturing work once the United States starts getting back their work from Asia, but they will only get this working smartly.

An economy who depends of manufacturing, such as Mexico, cannot only develop and increase by keeping low salaries, society is a whole and it cannot let itself base its competitive by having low manufacturing costs only.

“Mexico has taken the necessary steps to change reforms that would benefit Mexicans, and the manufacturing sector would see the benefits of those changes by keeping low energy, communication and logistic costs, which would make us capable to keep low costs to our customers”, added Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal.
