Sustainability and Performance: high quality fashion yarn
In the new book "NEO-MATERIALS IN THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY – FASHION" RadiciGroup presents its reduced environmental impact product range
Solution-dyed polyester, recycled polymer polyester and bio-based polyamide are some of the kinds of low environmental impact yarns produced by RadiciGroup specifically for the fashion industry. The fashion world is finally addressing sustainability and looking for materials that are not only beautiful and strong, but also sustainable.
The RadiciGroup product portfolio meeting these new market requirements is described in the recently published book Neo-materials in the Circular Economy – Fashion, available now in bookshops in both Italian and English versions. The book is edited by Marco Ricchetti in collaboration with Blumine Srl and the Italian sustainable fashion social network Sustainability-lab.
The section about the Group, “RadiciGroup and the Future of Synthetic Fibres”, written by Aurora Magni, appears in the first chapter of the book and can also be read on the RadiciGroup website (click here). Moreover, the book as a whole offers numerous in-depth articles to provide an overall picture of the direction of the fashion industry.
“RadiciGroup can play a leading role in the fashion value chain as the ideal upstream supplier,” said Oscar Novali, business area manager of RadiciGroup Comfort Fibres. “RadiciGroup has long been well-equipped to satisfy the most diverse market needs for the supply of both small and large quantities of materials, including reduced environmental impact products. Over the years, our competence has expanded and we’ve invested in new technologies and up-to-date production plants, which set us apart from our competitors and make sustainability a competitive advantage. Our over 75 years of experience in the fibres industry and our vertically integrated polyamide production allow us to claim that we’re one of the best-qualified producers on the market.”
