The Parisian brand Gambettes Box has seen success with tights in a box sold by subscription and is now marketing two pairs of tights made from Fulgar's Evo yarns derived from sustainably cultivated castor oil plants.
Gambettes Box is widening its sustainable portfolio of Evo tights with stylised pois designs and mini-diamond shapes, inspired by the popularity of tights made from Fulgar's Q-Nova recycled polyamide.
Head of product for Gambettes Box, Sixtine Maroniez, said the global pandemic has increased consumer awareness, especially among younger customers, as well as creating changes in people's behaviour, shopping preferences, and lifestyles. As a result, they are giving more thought to their decisions and rewarding sustainability projects. They need to understand this cultural shift as well as fashion trends, which is why they've decided to broaden their green offering even further, enlisting the help of Fulgar once again.
Daniela Antunes, Fulgar marketing manager, said they're excited that a company with such an initial business concept has come to them to help build an ecological capsule. Fulgar has a long-standing contribution to sustainability at all levels of the manufacturing process and advocates for a more environmentally friendly clothing supply chain.
Fulgar is a global pioneer in synthetic fibres, manufacturing and exporting nylon 6.6 and coated elastomers for the garment and technical fibre industries. Fulgar, founded in the late 1970s in Castel Goffredo (Mantova), in Italy's hosiery area, has experienced consistent growth over the last ten years thanks to its investment in R&D and contribution to environmental issues.
The company's fibres and yarns are used in a wide range of clothing applications, including hosiery, circular knits, intimate apparel, beachwear, and sportswear, all while maintaining the Made in Italy textile heritage.
In Europe and Turkey, Fulgar is the sole distributor of the Lycra, Lycra T400, and Elaspan labels, and in 2012, it formed a relationship with the Solvay group to manufacture Emana, Amni Soul Eco and Q-Skin fibres.
