TWO LEADING COMPANIES WITH AN INTERNATIONALL REPUTATION FOR INNOVATION PRESENT AT ITMA ‘DENIM ADDICTED’: A SEAMLESS ECO-FRIENDLY CAPSULE COLLECTION
"Sustainable technology" is the main theme for ITMA 2015, one of the most important global events in the textile sector. And against this backdrop, Fulgar and Santoni - two high-profile Italy textile producers - make their presence felt with an innovative project that reflects their care for the environment.
A UNIQUE COLLECTION WITH A GREEN HEART DEVELOPED
IN COLLABORATION WITH STUDENTS AT THE
ITS MACHINA LONATI COLLEGE
On the one hand latest generation machinery with reduced environmental impact - Santoni's SM8/TOP2V - and on the other a 100% biobased fibre, Evo® by Fulgar, a cutting edge product in the field of hi-tech bio-based materials and textiles. This prestigious combination has become the inspiration for a special project with the vocational training college "ITS Machina Lonati’. Santoni and Fulgar have brought in students from the ‘Fashion technologist Designers’ course to create a new, original interpretation of seamless products. This initiative will for the first time involve the use of Fulgar's bio-based EVO® fibre.
The creativity of talented young people – Alessio Bonetta and Valeria Dallan – is combined with the most recent technological innovations in the textile sector - also supporting environmental sustainability - to create an 'eco-friendly' Seamless collection. A series of denim-inspired garments that, thanks to Fulgar's EVO® fibre - combines a green heart with a gutsy, high-performance personality for a modern urban look with even higher levels of comfort.
