Press Release FW 2020 - 2021
FALL WINTER 2020/2021
The thread of creativity shows us the way of art.
Reveals our atitudes and beauty.
Art weaves a subtle texture of emotions, expands our limits, makes us more
human; a source of inspirations that continually regenerates our ideas.
The artist who inspired us are united by a yarn:
their powerful expressive language
Mohair, alpaca, mohair / alpaca blend, wool. The yarns range from bouclé to gauzes, to the effects of boiled wool, sporty tweeds, brushed yarns even stretch and comfort, to the extra light, bulky yarns of AIRY family.
Inevitable the proposals of lurex, in mix with viscose or cotton, in neps or small plates twisted with soft alpaca. Games of light and shadows for both day and evening.
The yarns become sophisticated and precious in the wide range of sequins, which have always been the excellence of our company: mini and macro sequins, metallic or transparent, in classic tones or in more eccentric and flashy combinations.
There is a strong desire for color, decisive and without half tones.
A wide range of mélange colours which always convey a sense of well-being, especially in more traditional yarns; some shade cards are developed with chanteclair colors. Color is also prints: from degradé to a mix of multiple colors which always coexist in harmony even in the brighter tones.
WE LOVE THE WORLD AROUND US AND WE WANT TO RESPECT IT EVERYDAY
As entrepreneurs, but first of all as human beings we have a duty to be aware and to work towards safeguarding the environment and man. We have been doing this for years, committing ourselves to reducing harmful chemicals in the production processes of all the yarns we produce. Our MRSL (Manufacturing Restricted Substances List) is in line with the ZDHC (Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals) program. We are part of the 4sustainability project, the first Italian network structured to accompany companies in the textile chain on a path to sustainability. We are signatories of the Greenpeace Detox campaign.
With the need to give a name to those yarns, in particular, which use materials with low social and environmental impact, the new Ecollection line is born; it is the result of years of commitment on the path towards eco-sustainability of our production. We want to best express the future green lines, respecting our most precious heritage: the environment. The 5 yarns that we propose for this season are made with Alpaca and recycled Pet: Alpaca: only natural colors, from a selection of the different shades of the Peruvian alpaca fleece which are being only washed: 8 colors, from cream to almost black brown. The Pet used is completely recycled from post-consumer plastic bottles collected and processed in Italy through a mechanical and non-chemical process (up to 20 plastic bottles per 1 kg of yarn).
We are about to get the GRS (Global Recycle Standard) certification for recycled yarns which will allow us to have the mark on all recycled yarns, and will allow us to issue the certification to our customers.
FEEL THE YARN CONTEST turns 10 years old. Great steps have been taken since the first edition. The young aspiring designers from the best fashion and design schools in the world who participate in the competition present increasingly innovative and creative knitwear outfits. We are pleased to be competing this year in conjunction with the student Viktorija Mineikyte of the NCAD - National College of Art and Design in Dublin.
