Fulgar, the Italian brand that is the leading international textile company in the manufacture of man-made fibres, has a long-standing commitment to sustainability in both product and corporate context. This has led Fulgar eco-yarns to be chosen by northern European brands that are known for the dedication to ecological issues, also in the textile and clothing sectors.
Riley Studio is a British brand that uses recycled waste materials and responsibly-produced natural fibres to create gender-neutral garments for environmentally-aware consumers. The clothing is designed to last, and is intended to be worn for life, not just a single season.
In its latest collection Riley Studio has used Q-NOVA® by Fulgar for eight of its designs, sporty yet elegant pants and track suits with a refined, minimal look.
Launched five years ago, Q-NOVA® is an eco-friendly fibre that makes a company’s production process more sustainable because it is made exclusively from regenerated raw materials using a mechanical, non-chemical process.
This product is of great value and significance and has obtained European Ecolabel EU and international Global Recycled Standard certifications. In 2017 it was included on the Higg Index, developed by the SAC (Sustainable Apparel Coalition), which measures and scores the environmental impact of the garment’s entire life cycle.
