This is a blog post for all the questions that we got from you! Please let us know if you have any other questions about our product or Kickstarter. We will update all of our FAQs on this page.
Why do you choose Evanana as the name of your brand?
The Latinate counterpart of English “Eva” derived from a Hebrew name meaning “life” or "the living one”. It also means full of life and mother of life. The name “Nana” is widely used in lots of cultures, delivering our message of internationality and no judgement. It can be used as “grace” in Hebrew, “spring greens” in Japanese and “Lady” in Swahili.
Evanana represents the journeys of powerful women, who are well travelled, appreciate all the different cultures, believe in themselves and actively live their lives with love and grace. Now, we are asking for your help to bring this project to life.
How do you make activewear out of fishnets?
We partnered with an Italian fabric suppliers who help with Healthy Sea initiatives to recover fishnets and ocean waste. The recovered fishnets, together with some other materials ( carpet fluff, tulle etc. ) are delivered to Aquafil SpA regeneration plant where, thanks to a sophisticated and complex process, the above mentioned materials are turned into ECONYL®, a new polyamide yarn boasting the same features as virgin nylon in terms of performance and quality, but with the plus of not having been produced with the use of non-renewable fossil raw materials. ECONYL® Regeneration System!
ECONYL® is a type of recycled nylon yarn, as a premium ingredient for the production of some of their high-end fabrics, guaranteeing the same performance of those made of standard polyamide.
What are the features of Evanana Activewear?
Evanana activewear is made by Econyl recycled yarn. Features of the fabrics include:
- Ultra-chlorine resistant
- Shape retention
- Muscle control
- UV protection (UPF 50+)
- Pilling resistant
- Two-way stretch
- Resistance sun cream and oil
We have also designed our pieces in a more functional way, this is why we added details like adjustable clips for different intensity of workout and meshed panels for increased breathability.
As an ethical and sustainable business, does your business partners have environmental related qualifications?
Our suppliers hold certificates like HIGG index, Certificate ISO 14001, OEKO-TEX and so on. All of our manufacturing facilities are fair-wage certified workplaces that take pride in providing the highest quality of workmanship available. We also expect each of our manufacturing partners to uphold the highest quality standards through continuous QC checks and best practices.
What is Kickstarter?
Kickstarter is a funding platform for creative projects. Everything from film, games, and music to art, design, and technology. Kickstarter is full of ambitious, innovative, and imaginative projects that are brought to life through the direct support of others.
How does Kickstarter work?
Every project creator sets their project's funding goal and deadline. If people like the project, they can pledge money to make it happen. If the project succeeds in reaching its funding goal, all backers' credit cards are charged when the time expires. Funding on Kickstarter is all-or-nothing. If the project falls short of its funding goal, no one is charged.
