Herno Globe, the new green label, launched with SS20, which includes the brand’s eco-sustainable projects, will feature four new proposals for next winter. Two bombers and two men’s and two women’s down padded coats in FAST5DEGRADABLE fabric made by Dyntex – a Herno exclusive 20-denier nylon – that boasts the use of Amni Soul Eco®, a biodegradable polyamide 6.6 yarn.
The fabric’s name describes the benefits of the yarn it is made from. The result of research by the Solvay Group - in collaboration with Fulgar, a hallmark of Made in Italy excellence and leader in the innovative and eco-sustainable man-made fibre sector - Amni Soul Eco® features revolutionary bio-degradation times. If correctly disposed of in special anaerobic tips, Amni Soul Eco® biodegrades in about five years.
So the use of FAST5DEGRADABLE fabric with Amni Soul Eco® means that the four new proposals from Herno Globe biodegrade rapidly and totally, a performance that is further boosted by choosing easily biodegradable down accessories and padding.
By choosing Amni Soul Eco®, Herno has found the right partner in in Fulgar, as Herno president Claudio Marenzi emphasises: “Fulgar’s green portfolio means that we at HERNO have found the perfect partner, and this enables us to achieve a twofold objective – to take the value of sustainability to the highest possible level in the context of a circular economy and fulfil the demands of a rapidly growing market that is increasingly focused on the use of eco-compatible fabrics”.
Fulgar’s Marketing Manager Alan Garosi says, “We’re extremely pleased and honoured that HERNO has chosen us not only as a supplier of eco-sustainable products but also a partner company. It’s an important recognition of our now decade-long commitment to eco-sustainable research and development with the aim of creating an increasingly sustainable and ethical supply chain”.
