Founded by Billi Hardwick and Marie Bouhier, hosiery brand Billi London is showcasing new eco legwear range at Salon International de la Lingerie (SIL), from June 18-20 June at Porte de Versailles in Paris alongside brands such as Rejeanne and Sisters Republic. Each hosiery item in this range is made with innovative enhanced degradable yarns Amni Soul Eco® nylon and ROICA ™ V550 elastane. The Amni Soul Eco ® yarn degrades in twenty faster than the normal 40-100 timeframe. It degrades in five years, breaking down into biomass and biogas and creating renewable energy. The soft yet chic fabrics have pioneered a change across the fashion sector that goes beyond just using recyclable materials.
The brand also features in The Selection, a guide of the organizers’ must-haves of the year based on their innovation, creativity and quality. Sophie Billi-Hardwick from Billi London will be one of the panelists in a fire-side style discussion titled ‘Women who change women!’ paying tribute to those women who innovate and make an impact on the conditions of other women worldwide. The talk will take place on Monday, June 20, 2022.
