Filpucci Group, a leading developer of high-end creative knitwear yarns, will launch its new ‘Responsive Innovation Collection’ at the Pitti Filati expo, to be held from June 27 to 29, 2018, in Italy. Filpucci has also announced its official partnership with C.L.A.S.S. (Creativity Lifestyle and Sustainable Synergy), a multi-platform HUB based in Milan.
The “Responsible Innovation Collection” represents a new level of smart innovation linked to responsible, eco-centric production. The collection uses the best high-tech, natural-based materials, combined with Filpucci’s dying & finishing expertise. This gives customer’s real access to a new, fashion-forward aesthetic, where quality and smart uniqueness in these new, more responsible yarns, deliver a new textile era of sustainable fashion solutions that are driven by ethical and natural values.
There are seven new yarn styles in the Responsible Innovation Collection with smart blends of only the best, certified, organic and natural materials (cottons & linens), new generation wool Re.Verso and sustainable hi-tech materials (Cupro and Q-Nova) for 5 to 18 gauge knitwear design; Cera, Grace, Bionyco, Sughero, Four Seasons, Planet, Bonton, and Kamut.
C.L.A.S.S. specialises in integrating a new generation of eco-values for fashion, home products and business strategies. These values speak to a new, smarter, contemporary consumer.
From this platform, Filpucci is also a key ambassador for the unique C.L.A.S.S. partner product, Re.Verso, for its luxury upcycled cashmere yarns. New additional steps on the Filpucci journey towards a more responsible approach to smart design and manufacture also include the signing of a new ‘Values Chart’ in conjunction with a joint consortium to guarantee sustainable production chains that are fully traceable with certified materials and measured environmental performances, such as reducing CO2, water use, and power consumption.
The company is also GRS accredited with dyeing facilities that are second to none, boasting a GOTS certification alongside recycling 70 per cent of water and also as part of the DETOX campaign for the last 3 years.
