    What has been the growth story at Bossa in the last couple of years?

    What was the impact of the pandemic? What steps have you taken to tide over it?

    The pandemic slowed our acceleration. We got closer to our customers. Also Bossa has got a widespread sales organisation all over the world. Although it is banned to travel, our sales teams located in these offices and visited customers regularly to keep in touch.

    Denim continues to be popular in spite of the bad reputation it has earned for itself as a fabric that causes a lot of pollution. How does your manufacturing unit counter this?

    Among all textile production denim industry could be the most green and environmental conscious production.

    Where do you source your cotton from? How does Bossa educate its end customer -- the increasingly discerning and demanding B2C consumer - on why a denim product from Bossa meets all goals of fair trade?

    Our cotton is sourced from Turkey and US. Our aim is to consume 100 per cent Turkish cotton. Unfortunately we do not have enough cotton produced in Turkey.

    We have outstanding cotton programmes as follows:
    • Sagsalim - Bossa started this project with the brands. Our aim is to be Sedex of cotton production.
    • Organic cotton traceability - For the last 10 years Bossa is deeply involved in organic cotton production. We trace our farmers, land areas, plantation, harvesting, ginning… all details of organic cotton production.
    • R&D trails with the agricultural ministry of Turkey in order to produce less water consuming cotton seeds.??

    What are the innovations on denim that Bossa has come up with?

    Bossa has a lot of innovations. Here are few examples of our latest innovations:?

    Xupple Stretch?

    Bossa offers "Xupple Stretch" to the brands and markets all over the world. This is a responsive stretch technology with high elasticity satisfying consumer needs. A lot of body image stereotypes are being broken through fashion evolution in these days. Based on research "clothing size" is also the mental block for the consumers.?

    Xupple Stretch supports consumers to focus on confidence and happiness rather than measurements.?

    Besides stretch performances, Xupple Stretch fabrics have soft feel and natural touch without losing authentic real denim look. They are revolutionary fabrics for the future.?

    Dynamix

    Dynamix fabrics are bi-stretch, they have 4 way stretch performance and offer dynamic stretch performance with a mixture of sustainable fibres. Thanks to 4-way stretch performance, Dynamix acts like a second skin and features total freedom of movement. It cares about your comfort and the planet.?

    We also have some sustainable innovations especially using less water! We have Saveblue and Saveblue+ concepts.?

    When you talk about the environment, the first thing to come to mind is "water." Water is life. Bossa, carries out activities in water saving, has introduced the concepts of "Saveblue" and "Saveblue+". In Saveblue concept - 85 per cent water saving was achieved in proportion to the conventional dyeing, therefore the same amount of decrease in wastewater was realised. In Saveblue+ concept - 85 per cent water saving was achieved in proportion to the conventional dyeing and also 71 per cent water saving was achieved in the finishing process. Therefore same amount of decrease in wastewater was realised in both dyeing and finishing processes. Being sensitive to energy and water consumption, our company has taken a great step in sustainability by combining natural fibre use with these concepts.

    Eco3

    In order to use less water, energy and chemicals to reduce the environmental impact of garment finishing, Bossa and Strom collaborated to develop the Eco3 concept! This concept includes sustainable washing technology by Strom and fabrics by Bossa especially for this technology.? Fabrics for sustainable washing technology are ozone and laser friendly.? In sustainable washing technology - laser is used instead of dry processes (whiskering, sandpaper), ecological spray is used instead of pp spray, reusable ecological stone is used instead of pumice stone and ozone is used instead of hypochlorite. Less water, less chemical and less energy... Let's save the earth together!

    Towards zero waste - we are using pre-consumer recycled, post-consumer recycled and post industrial waste. We have also completed projects on producing zero cotton, zero dyestuff and zero water articles. We have many ongoing projects using new Lenzing indigo modal, naturally coloured cotton.
