HERNO CHOOSES AMNI SOUL ECO® A BIO-DEGRADABLE NYLON YARN MADE IN ITALY BY FULGAR
2020, January 07
Florence – Herno Globe, the green capsule collection within the brand’s menswear collection for Fall/Winter 2020/2021, is enhanced by a new eco-sustainable project – two garments in FAST5DEGRADABLE fabric, a 20-denier nylon made using Amni Soul Eco® bio-degradable polyamide 6.6 yarn.
The fabric’s name reflects the benefits offered by the yarns used in its composition. The result of research by the Solvay Group - in collaboration with Fulgar, a centre of Made in Italy excellence and leader in the production of innovative, eco-sustainable man-made fibres - Amni Soul Eco® offers revolutionary bio-degrading times. If correctly disposed of in special anaerobic tips Amni Soul Eco® biodegrades in around five years, compared to the fifty-year period required by a normal polyamide.
The presence of Amni Soul Eco® in the Herno Globe bomber and coat in FAST5DEGRADABLE fabric means they are rapidly bio-degradable. The use of accessories and down padding that is easy to dispose of also means the garments are fully sustainable.
By choosing Amni Soul Eco®, HERNO has found in Fulgar the right partner for achieving a dual objective – to take the values of sustainability to their highest levels in the context of the circular economy, and to fulfil the requirements of clients who are becoming increasingly aware of environmental issues, and are showing growing interest in where and how the clothes they buy are made.
