YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2022-02-03 10:33:59 – Italy

RadiciGroup, the leading producer of chemicals, engineering polymers, synthetic fibers, and nonwovens headquartered in Bergamo, Italy, is showcasing a ski suit made entirely of recycled yarns that is fully recyclable at the end of its life without sacrificing style, design, or technical performance at the 34th Milano Unica, which began (February 1st) at the Milan Rho Fairground in Italy.

The new RadiciGroup Ski Club outfit, which was displayed in the Innovation Area of TexClubTec, Sistema Moda Italia's technical and functional textiles section at the show, was designed by the firm in partnership with the Italian sportswear brand DKB.

Marco De Silvestri, sales and marketing manager at RadiciGroup, said that the ski outfit, which consists of a jacket and trousers, is constructed of Renycle, a yarn manufactured from mechanically recycled nylon. Polyamide is also used in the suit's padding and various accessories, like as zippers, Velcro, buttons, and thread. It was a challenging project, but they succeeded in achieving a clear goal: circularity in sportswear without sacrificing performance. This was accomplished by ongoing collaboration with other companies in the chain to develop chemically compatible materials that ensure the high technical performance required for this type of outdoor wear.

At Milano Unica, RadiciGroup will also be displaying clothes created from Repetable, a polyester yarn derived from post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, as well as products manufactured from Biofeel, which blends both nylon and polyester yarns derived from renewable sources.

De Silvestri added that the message they want to communicate to Milano Unicais is that those of them working at the upstream end of the supply chain can share their material knowledge and effectively support fashion firms in the design and implementation of creative, circular solutions. Ecodesign and recyclability, along with aesthetics and performance, have been major industry drivers and will continue to be so in the future.
