Eco-sustainable fabrics from Maglificio
Maglificio Ripa, a leading knitting company based in Italy, in cooperation with ROICA by Asahi Kasei, has developed a range of fabrics for the Autumn/Winter 2018 season, with the use of Asahi Kasei’s eco-sustainable yarn, reinstating its commitment to protecting the environment.
The company, which is involved in developing new, authentically eco-sustainable products in conformity with the Oeko-Tex and Reach protocols and more recently Greenpeace’s Detox programme, says it is contributing to the eco-sustainable future of the planet through its continuous investments in research and innovation.
From fashion, to sportswear, from underwear to beachwear, Maglificio Ripa’s mission is to interpret and anticipate the market’s now-growing demand for authentically eco-sustainable products. “This mission has been pursued with tenacity and transparency and can be seen throughout the four main collections Dress, Skin, Splash, Sport, which cover practically all areas of fashion,” the company explains.
The beauty of Maglificio Ripa’s sustainable fabrics is also guaranteed by the combination of two innovative high-tech fibres, a GRS-certified Q-Nova, made from regenerated nylon, and Evo, a high-tech 100 per cent bio-based yarn, both patented by the Italian company Fulgar.
