Designer couple Pankaj and Nidhi Ahuja have used fabric made with 100 percent recycled plastic PET bottles for their latest collection ‘Talisman which was showcased on Day 2 of the ongoing digital edition of the Lakme Fashion Week (LFW).

The designers collaborated with R|Elan to source the “fabrics of the future” like GreenGold which feels like silk and allows breathability, freshness, and flexibility; FeelFresh that has anti-microbial properties; and KoolTex which absorbs perspiration.

Commenting on the collection and Pankaj and Nidhi said: “As designers, we realize that 90 percent of an outfit is the fabric that it is made of. R|Elan provided us with the means to work with sustainable fabrics and to make clothes that would not only look good on the outside but also feel great on the inside, giving the wearer a sense of comfort and well-being.”
