Saitex opens facility in the US
Saitex, known as the cleanest denim factory in the world, has opened its first facility outside its Vietnam birthplace in the US to offer responsible denim manufacturing in Los Angeles.

Saitex USA has been positioned in what the company calls the “heart of the American denim industry” and features state-of-the-art manufacturing technology with energy and resource-efficient machinery.

The move Saitex explains allows it to expand its “vision and capabilities globally,” as well as produce locally in the US.

During the pandemic, Saitex invested heavily in building the first-of-its-kind facility with the latest innovative laser cutting, semi-automated sewing, robotic spraying, 3D laser detailing and futuristic one-step wash machines connected to a state-of-the-art water recycling system.

The manufacturing technology implemented allows for an automated supply chain ecosystem at speed using interconnected ordering and costing with shorter lead times, giving the Los Angeles facility a “competitive advantage,” added Saitex.

The facility also utilises Saitex’s ‘Speed to Market’ system, which can provide a conscious approach to inventory management and “made to order” capabilities by offering online garment design, collaboration, and manufacturing custom styles at scale, sustainably, and fast.

Sanjeev Bahl, chief executive and founder of Saitex, said in a statement: “Saitex USA is another step in our journey, providing an opportunity to bring sustainable manufacturing and jobs to the United States, a first step in reevaluating and reinventing global supply chains.”

The Saitex USA team will be led by industry veteran Kathy Kweon, as USA president.

Sportswear label Fila has unveiled a collaboration with birdwatching initiative Flock Together in the form of an apparel and footwear capsule, to be exclusively sold through LN-CC.

In a range of hike-wear gear made for urban exploring, the collection intends to bring people into nature and engage with their community. The selection includes a reinvented version of the Fila Trailblazer hiking shoe and two shearling fleece designs.

The colourways of the line are inspired by the Kingfisher bird, with a scannable near field communication (NFC) tag present in the hiking shoe that takes buyers to a dedicated page outlining the best places in the UK to spot a Kingfisher.

15 percent of all sales of the collection will go towards the Flock Together community fund.

Buying and creative director at LN-CC, Reece Crisp, expressed his enthusiasm over the collaboration in a release, stating: “We’re super excited for LN-CC to be part of this project.

“Flock Together encompasses everything that’s great about community and wellness, two driving forces that are integral to LN-CC too.

“Flock Together’s growth has been both a reaction to, and antidote from, a difficult eighteen months by bringing people together and encouraging outdoor consciousness, so we are honoured to share our platform in amplifying its much-needed positivity while working with Fila in creating this tribute to the Kingfisher.”

Flock Together, founded back in the 2020 covid-19 lockdowns, brings BIPOC together to engage in birdwatching and other nature-oriented activities.

It has previously partnered on an event with Timberland, hosting a range of spoken word presentations at the nature reserve, Woodbury Wetlands. Sponsored by the apparel label, the event aimed to promote the voices in its growing community adjacent to guiding guests through the nature reserve.
