For the S/S 20 season, we have further developed articles that have sustainable or ecological origins: as a further step we are approaching FSC certification. The increasing importance of these themes related to respect and preservation of the environment for future generations and the concept of social sustainability have driven us to create new knitted fabrics; the first step has been the research of raw materials, not only certified but also married to the concept of "beautiful" which is a feature that always can be found in our production. .Among others, there are fabrics made of pure or blended compositions with the following raw materials.
Organic cotton (GOATS certificate): from organic crops in India and Turkey, yarn with the highest quality standards.
Continuous viscose produced in Europe, with very low emission cycle into the environment.
Viscose obtained from Cotton Linter (instead of cellulose pulp - plants): yarns in cellulosic artificial fibers eco-friendly originating from cotton linters, or short fibers that cover cotton seeds. Cotton linter is a waste product of cotton processing that is collected after the separation between cotton wool (which will be used for cotton yarns) and seeds. The cotton linter is then worked (like wood pulp) to obtain cellulose pulp with which the artificial fibers of Viscose will be spun.
Continuous recycled polyester yarns obtained 100% from post-consumer plastic bottles. The polymer is obtained through a mechanical and non-chemical process and the whole production, thanks to a consolidated know-how and a complete and patented project, is managed under the banner of responsible innovation. The yarn has the same performance and quality levels as those of virgin polyester yarns, but with significant savings in terms of resources and costs for the environment.
Eco-sustainable yarns obtained exclusively from recycled and traceable raw materials. Raw materials are made up of pre-consumer residual materials, or rather coming from the spinning production cycle, through a mechanical and non-chemical regeneration process (which is responsible for the sustainability of the final product). The production of this yarn makes it possible to reduce by about 80% the CO2 emissions and by 90% the use of water per kg produced compared to a yarn made from virgin polymer.
