Canadian brand Rachel launches two tights styles for the North American market, made using the innovative Q-NOVA® by Fulgar fibre.
The tights of the future have a green soul. Feminine and elegant, they bear the name Rachel, a Canadian brand boasting thousands of North American customers, and are made using Q-NOVA® fibre by Fulgar, an Italian centre of excellence in the production of innovative, sustainable man-made fibres.
Created by Carolyne and Mélanie, Rachel is for all women who want to feel beautiful, comfortable and feminine every day, with an accessible and essential wardrobe accessory. But that’s not all – the Canadian brand’s philosophy combines style and elegance with the value and importance of sustainability. Its entire tights collection featuring printed tights, colourful tights and more, are produced in Italy in factories that respect environmental and ethical work standards. The company’s encounter with Q-NOVA® by Fulgar, the innovative fibre made using regenerated raw materials, has resulted in two eco-friendly tights styles that are bound to become a modern must-have.
This month, it launched the first release from its new eco tights collection featuring its classic Polka Dot Tight and bestselling Over-the-Knee Tights, taking on step forward for sustainability, as the first Canadian hosiery brand to add green products to its offer. It’s an important initiative, for which the brand chose the cutting-edge recycled yarn by Fulgar, a world-leading company at the forefront of Italy’s hosiery sector. Fulgar’s philosophy is based on developing new-concept man-made fibres, and the company has a long-standing commitment to research and innovation in its drive for sustainability.
“Our mission is to help women feel beautiful in what they’re wearing and develop their style by offering a unique selection of tights”, says Mélanie, one of the brand’s co-founders. “We’re very enthusiastic about the launch of these two products, especially because we’re the only Canadian company to offer the option of sustainable tights.”
“We’re proud that more and more international brands are choosing our fibres to make eco-sustainable products”, says Alan Garosi, marketing manager of Fulgar. “We believe it’s crucial to promote the value and importance of sustainability within the fashion industry so that companies become increasingly aware of this idea and begin to offer consumers affordable, high-quality products that respect the environment”.
