Re.Verso is a new textile platform made of a group of three top Italian mills, Nuova Fratelli Boretti, Green Line and Lanificio Stelloni has collaborated with Italian spinning company Filatura C4. The first collection from the partnership will be showcased at Techtextil in Frankfurt next week.
The collection is combination of Re.Verso wool and polyamide blended with Filaturaâ€™s â€˜100 percent made in Italyâ€™ fabrics.
The Re.Verso supply chain platform incorporates pre-consumer waste yarns, mainly wool but not limited to it, is converted into fiber through a mechanical process, and then spin into yarns from which knitted, woven and knitwear fashion fabrics can be made, and then into finished garments in a fully traceable, transparent line of production that has garnered recognition as a best-practice model for eco-responsible manufacture.
Re.Verso initially launched in September 2014, after sustainable textiles platform CLASS (Creativity Lifestyle and Sustainable Synergy) teamed up with luxury fashion brand Gucci.
The joint venture began when Filatura C4 realised Re.Versoâ€™s added value. While Filatura C4 can still boast its â€˜made in Italyâ€™ tagline, Re.Verso yarns can replace the use of virgin yarns â€“ saving on raw materials, costs and environmental impacts, a statement from CLASS said.
Of the three companies involved in Re.Verso, Green Line is responsible for sourcing and sorting the pre-consumer waste yarns and fabrics, Nuova Fratelli Boretti mechanically transforms the waste textiles into fibres ready for spinning, and textile mill Lanificio Stelloni uses the materials to manufacture knitted and woven fabrics.
Filatura C4 established in 1962 in Pistoia, for three generations has been producing â€œMade in Italy â€œcarded yarns, combining the innovations of a young and dynamic Management team, with tradition, technical knowhow, and experience.
Filatura C4â€™s natural collection are manufactured from a combination of natural fibers, with viscose, and in conjunction with the so-called â€œgreen fibersâ€, which are ecological and environment friendly ones, like Soya and natural Bamboo.
Filatura C4â€™s â€˜Natural Collectionâ€™ of Re.Verso blended fabrics will be on show at Techtextil, Frankfurt on 4 â€“ 7 May, at booth H55, hall 3.1.
