95% of all fabrics we incorporate into our production chain are recycled from Italy & US. We use ECONYL® regenerated Nylon in the fabrics we import from Carvico. These fabrics are repurposed from reclaimed fishing nets & other post-consumer waste. We add REPREVE regenerated Nylon into our plain & digital prints from the US. No waste. No new resources. Just endless possibilities.
For every 10.000 tons of ECONYL® Raw material used, we can save 70.000 barrels of crude oil and avoid 65.100 tons of C2 eq. emissions. UPF 50+: A UPF of 50 means that approximately 98% of UVA radiation is blocked.
