Reviva is Your Sustainable Alternative to Dry Cleaning
You want to take care of that special garment that means so much to you so you take it to the dry cleaners. Unknown to you, it is immersed in a harmful dry cleaning chemical called Perchloroethylene, commonly called Perc. You get the dry cleaned garment, and the traces of Perc are home with you. Little by little, Perc is evaporated into our air and we breathe it in. It touches our skins. It is thrown into our rivers.
With this looming environment and health concerns, fashion designers, stylists, and enthusiasts have realized it is time to take a step forward towards sustainability in fashion and garment care.
Reviva Luxury Garment Care is wet cleaning. It cleans even the most sensitive dry clean only fabrics using only water and biodegradable cleaners to delicately protect your special clothes while protecting the environment.
Reviva brings Wet Cleaning Technology, invented by Kreussler Textile Care of Germany, to the Philippines and was officially launched during the event dubbed as “The Clean Launch” on January 28, 2020 in The Podium, Ortigas.
Over the years, studies have shown evidence of hazards brought by Perc-driven dry cleaning. Perc leads to health risks such as dizziness, drowsiness, headaches, loss of consciousness, limited memory loss, skin blistering, and visual and coordination issues. Prolonged exposure increases the risk of cancer. Improper disposal of Perc also poses environmental risks. While USA and Europe has seen the dangers of using Perc, in the Philippines, most dry cleaners still use it.
Reviva’s wet cleaning technology uses water and a cleaning agent called Lanadol to bring life to every fiber of the garment. Unlike laundry, wet cleaning uses special equipment that precisely controls the process.
Reviva allows processing all kinds of fabrics with different construction and trimmings so the most delicate and elaborate garments are taken care of. This includes haute couture, bespoke suits and tuxedos, dresses and baby garments, evening wear, bridal and ball gowns, wool, cashmere and garments with linings, beadwork and sequins. And yes, it cleans even leather and silk.
The fashion industry now shifts towards sustainability without sacrificing creativity and quality. In the Philippines, Reviva helps the industry and you to be at the frontline of this movement.
