AFTER SPORTSWEAR AND CASUALWEAR, THE HIGH-END FASHION TEXTILES SECTOR IS PLACING AN INCREASING EMPHASIS ON SUSTAINABILITY.
Already showing more awareness when purchasing, consumers are now also asking how their acquisitions are made, demanding ethical, sustainable products. In this context, two examples of Made in Italy excellence, Luxury Jersey and Fulgar, have shown how this can be made possible through a strategic collaboration aimed at providing products that are well made from every point of view.
Luxury Jersey draws on the textile culture of the Boselli family, and every season develops unique fabrics with a high creative and technical content, supplying stylists and fashion houses in the luxury and design sector. Its products are based on cutting edge trends and its clients' specific requirements. In order to promote consumer well-being, Luxury Jersey bases its creative and manufacturing processes around the concept of sustainability, using an all-Italian, entirely traceable supply chain, from raw materials to weaving, dyeing and finishing.
This is especially evident for the Spring-Summer 2018 collection, as Luxury Jersey has chosen to draw on its long-established partnership with Fulgar, the Italian leader in the manufacture of man-made yarns, for the creation of its most recent product, NAL0064 made with EVO®, the innovative Bio-based yarn developed by Fulgar after years of research into the highest manufacturing, environmental and social engineering standards. EVO® by Fulgar is made from castor oil derived from non-food plants that grow spontaneously. This totally renewable resource does not require large amounts of water or take up land that can otherwise be used for cultivating foodstuffs.
Presented at Premiére Vision, the new Luxury Jersey NAL0064 fabric fully reflects the product's ethical philosophy, and its weight and finish make it the ideal solution for the outerwear sector.
“We base our production on reliability and cutting edge partners", says Federico Boselli, General Manager of Luxury Jersey. “Today's great challenge is finding a partner that can work with us during the production stage, an ally that helps identify the best solution for meeting client needs.
This is what distinguishes our long-standing collaboration with Fulgar, an Italian company known for investing in research and innovation, an organisation that is now boasts the most advanced product in the field of materials and hi-tech fabrics derived from organic sources, the bio-based EVO® yarn by Fulgar, which is both green and high-performance.”
