Rethink, reduce, reuse, propose again

“Nothing is created,
nothing is destroyed,
everything is transformed”

Antoine-Laurent de Lavoisier

Rethink

Rethinking our way of life; we exaggerated on consumption and, consequently, on waste. It can be no longer ignored that reducing environmental pollution is now an obligation. In order to reduce waste, in a perfect world, it would be enough not to create it.

 

Reduce

The environment in which we live is a primary resource and one of the fundamental rules to be able to safeguard it, in addition to non-essential consumption, there is the logic of reuse and recycling.

Recycle

Properly recycling waste means preserving the environment and recognizing its value.

 

Re:use

Refusal of today, resource of tomorrow.
If the linear economy moves on the take, make, dispose principles, with an approach based on the unlimited exploitation of natural resources and a massive production of waste, the circular economy is based on the ability to reuse, recover or recycle
waste materials, or even on preventing them.

It is an opportunity to be seized, now more than ever.

In this era of consumerism, we are slowly getting back to have
greater attention to the planet and start a more sustainable future.

re:use

project is based on the use of

completely recycled materials to obtain recycled and recyclable fabrics.

 

Basically, recycling means transforming post-consumer objects into materials that they can be reborn in a new production cycle.
It is therefore possible to reduce the quantities of waste sent to landfills, and therefore CO2 emissions, and conserve
natural resources such as water and minerals.

 

We are not talking about eco-sustainability just because it is fashionable.
Ours is a serious, transparent and tangible commitment.
For years we have been offering our customers fabrics made with 100% regenerated yarn from pre and waste materials post consumer such as used clothing, plastic bottles, fishing nets etc .: materials that have now reached the end of their life cycle which, instead of being disposed of in landfills, are recovered and regenerated through a complex physico-chemical decomposition process.

Can polyester be sustainable?

Yes, when it comes to recycled polyester.
Recycled polyester (R-PET), despite its synthetic origins, can be considered a textile yarn always sustainable due to the possibility of being recycled indefinitely.
This means that a plastic bottle can be recycled to be transformrd into a garment which in turn could be recycled again to be made into a plastic bottle … and so on.

The acronym PET refers to polyethylene terephthalate, which is a belonging thermoplastic resin to the family of polyesters, commonly used for the production of bottles and small bottles of beverages.
With R-pet (Recycled Pet), on the other hand, we refer to a new polymer obtained through recovery processes and recycling of the common Pet which include sorting, washing, crushing and melting of plastic materials.
Recycled Pet is commonly made in the form of filaments or flakes and lends itself to the creation of countless products, with important benefits for the environment and for us all.

MUMBLE

MUMBLE collection is made with 100% recycled PET yarn.

It is a very soft fabric to the touch that offers excellent toughness and resilience, high resistance to abrasion and creases,
high dimensional stability and minimal moisture recovery, as well as excellent resistance to chemical and physical agents.
With a contemporary design, it is a textile product aimed at those who, alongside high quality performance, seeks a high aesthetic content.
Soft and sagging, but sustained at the same time, it has a broad coloring with natural tones.
The collection is GRS certified. Global Recycle Standard (GRS) which certifies and enhances products made with recycled materials in compliance with environmental and social criteria extended to all stages of the production chain.

Recycled linen.

 

re:used

 

helps protect the planet, our only home.

Natural fibers are perfectly ecological, and since they are totally renewable raw material, they are also perfectly recyclable, biodegradable and compostable.
They are at the same time particularly resistant and very light.
Their environmental impact is limited.

Linen, like cotton, can be recycled through pre-consumer waste processing (scrap cutting) or post-consumer waste, more difficult to dispose of due to the blends of fabrics present in the garment.

In the latter case, the recycled yarn will therefore contain a maximum of 10% of other fibers.

DRIVE

We have produced Recycled Linen because, in addition to preserving all the properties of linen, it has added values;
it is in fact linen returned to new life with particular attention to the health of the Planet.
Obtained using selected manufacturing scraps in 100% linen, then processed through hydrolysis process, gives life to an eco-friendly fiber to which 15% of the highest quality linen is added. Drive is breathable, shiny and soft to the touch.
