A New Milestone That Shakes The Industry
Two global denim players Soorty and ISKO have joined forces to transform the industry and introduce new, exciting ways of working and doing business. They developed a business model that is a first in the denim industry with a potential to change working practices for the better, while unlocking value for the entire market by scaling up responsible innovations.
A Unique Collaboration That Opens New Business Doors
Soorty and ISKO signed a landmark technology licensing agreement which sees the two companies working in partnership on the production of fabric and garment collections. The collaboration combines ISKO’s renowned expertise in creating best-in-class, patented technologies with Soorty’s extensive vertical production network, which will be utilized to produce the collections. The outcome is a unique collaboration that opens the door to significant new business opportunities for both companies and will enable them to meet customers’ needs on a greater scale.
Soorty and ISKO are two players that are at the forefront of sustainability, inclusivity, technology, and education in the industry and are driven by a shared approach that prioritizes synergy, cross-fertilization, and a quest for constant improvement.
ISKO was the first company to create an ingredient brand that offered its customers the added value of intellectual property protection, as well as its pioneering Responsible Innovation™ approach.
Soorty is a denim manufacturing powerhouse with a global, vertical integrated setup and a focus on design, innovation and sustainability, believing responsible denim should be produced at scale, and for all.

The First Collaboration
The first collaborative effort between the parties is the launch of the ISKO Future Face™ by Soorty collection. With this collaboration they’re using ISKO’s innovative ISKO Future Face™ technology, produced by Soorty specifically for the US market. ISKO Future Face™ is a patented woven fabric that looks like a knit. It combines a soft, silky finish with comfort, enhanced shape retention and a flattering drape, while maintaining all the properties of true denim.
