SUSTAINABILITY CULTURE IN FASHION
“We are proud to make our portfolio of yarns and innovative eco-sustainable available for projects like this”, said Alan Garosi, Marketing Manager at Fulgar. “We think it’s crucial to implement a green programme, and we’re happy that our commitment has been acknowledged by such a company of excellence as Serates, which has chosen to promote quality and the sustainability culture in fashion, too”.
Serates, a textile company from the Como area, takes the opportunity provided by the Performance Days event to present its new eco-sustainable fabrics made with two innovative green yarns by Fulgar.
The bio-based yarn EVO® by Fulgar, used in combination with a selection of prestigious linens, has inspired the Bio-original fabric, and AMNI SOUL ECO® provides a biodegradable DNA for the Degrì fabric used in rope-dyed articles to enhance the natural and cotton-like super-matt nylon
“It is vital for us to have access to resources that are in line with our corporate choices, and it’s a pleasure to collaborate with companies like Fulgar, which is helping us to develop eco-sustainable collections that are also designed for sportswear, providing us with fibres and yarns that are certified as having a low environmental impact. Sustainability is a fundamental issue and we must all act on it. I believe the textile/fashion sector has a duty to offer the public eco-friendly, high-performance products”.
EVO® by Fulgar yarn is obtained from castor oil. The castor oil plant grows spontaneously and is not a foodstuff – it is a totally renewable resource that does not require large amounts of water or take up land that can be used to cultivate food crops.
Suitable for all textile applications and the ideal solution for the sportswear world, EVO® by Fulgar is ultralight, super stretch and extremely breathable. It is also quick-drying and non-iron, with natural thermal and anti-bacterial properties ; it offers a whole series of distinctive values and benefits that ensure maximum comfort and exclusive performance against a background of total respect for nature.
AMNI SOUL ECO® is a formula enhanced by polyamide 6.6 developed by the Rhodia-Solvay group. It enables manufacturers to create garments that decompose quickly at the end of their lifecycle by making it easier for bacteria to access and digest the waste material, speeding up the bio-degradation process.
Amni Soul Eco® is eliminated by the Earth’s natural processes in around five years, while other fabrics remain in the environment for decades before decomposing fully. The many benefits offered by Amni Soul Eco® include softness, comfort, dyeing quality, breathability and Easy-Care performance.
