“The entire process takes place in Tunisia, from the denim converted at Ksar Helal to the Tunisian seamstresses who do the sewing” for Outa, said Montresor.

However, production costs are 20 percent higher than denim without the marine plastic content.

Despite this, Montresor believes he can “bring other entrepreneurs together and inspire designers to create eco-responsible collections”.

He called on renowned French designer Maud Beneteau, who previously belonged to Hedi Slimane, to design Outa’s first haute couture collection.

“We chose the high-value collection because the production cost for making denim fabric is higher than for normal yarn,” said Montessor.

Outa Creations first graced the catwalk during Tunis Fashion Week in June. Beneteau saw the first Outa collection as “a challenge, a human dimension to this amazing project that aligns with the idea of ​​saving the planet”.
