Upcycling: we closeclose thethe loop
Pursuing a fully sustainable lifestyle is not always easy and more eco-friendly clothing options than those proposed by the fast fashion industry are becoming more necessary than ever.
This can be achieved with a production cycle based on a Circular Economy model and upcycling is a big step forward in this direction. Upcycling is a neologism that keeps together two concepts that not always go hand-in-hand: first, the idea of recycling; and, second, the idea of improvement and quality (even though you are using discarded materials), thus the prefix “up”.
CAMELUXE® and LUXEPAD® are created in three steps; firstly, recovered materials are gathered and sorted in Northern Italy; secondly, they are transformed through a mechanic process into very fine fibers; lastly, the fibers are blended with recycled polyester, creating a high performing insulating mix, ready to be processed to create the pad. This process, whose patent was filed, allowed us to create a product highly resilient, features extraordinary tensile and strength qualities and with consistent insulating capacity.

We patented a mechanical process to produce responsible insulations. "Made from the existing" means upcycling recovered scraps of high-quality fabrics, in our case camelhair and cashmere, from the production of coats (and not only). Our patented process is completely mechanical and does
We patented a mechanical production process to avoid water consumption and waste. The Textile Industry is an intensive water user and producer of wastewater. Sustainable production implies using less water by maximum wastewater and chemicals recovery. In our case, recovered scraps of fabrics
