Pomelo Brings Together the Best of Sustainability, Tech and Design Through Purpose
Following the successful debut of Pomelo’s sustainable line, Purpose in 2018, the brand will launch three new collections this year making it part of Pomelo’s permanent product offering. Every Purpose collection is designed to address a particular sustainability issue, thus adopting a different eco-friendly practice each time. Launched on 3rd April 2019 at POMELOFASHION.COM, Purpose’s upcoming collection brings together the best of sustainability, tech, and design.
Inspired by elements of the sea, the 35-piece collection ranges from flowing bohemian dresses to minimalistic tops, and practical bottoms. Hues of aquamarine, beige, white, and coral, Pantone colour of the year, dominate the collection’s tone. Crafted entirely of organically-sourced fabrics including linen, organic BCI (Better Cotton Initiative) cotton, vegan suede, and natural colour dyes, it aims to reduce the fashion industry’s impact on natural resources.
To round out its sustainable offerings, Pomelo will also provide a free monthly pickup service of clothing donations that customers can access by scanning the QR codes stitched into their Purpose products with the Pomelo app on iOS and Android. Clothes can also be dropped off at collection boxes in Pomelo’s offline stores in Thailand and soon Singapore. All collected clothes are then redistributed to underprivileged partner communities in Thailand, Singapore, and Indonesia.
“Pomelo's Purpose collection is called Purpose as it presents us with an opportunity to lead the way in terms of bringing sustainable materials and processes to the fashion industry in the region. Purpose is a collection that brings the best of tech, sustainability, and design together to form a beautiful collection of minimal but fashionable pieces. We're very excited to continue to bring innovation to this very important topic,” said David Jou, Pomelo’s CEO.
Starting at SGD 24, Purpose is conveniently available to shop at POMELOFASHION.COM, or on the Pomelo iOS and Android Apps.
