In a world that is increasingly aware of the importance of preserving our planet, we are actively engaged in the production of responsible textiles. This means that we not only offer high quality products, but we do so with respect for the environment and for the resources of our Earth.
Our offer of recycled fabrics
We now have a wide range of fabrics made of viscose, polyester and recycled cotton. We boast certificates such as GRS, which guarantees that at least 20% of the raw materials are recycled and that all processes comply with specific ecological and social-ethical requirements. RCS, on the other hand, guarantees that a product consists of at least 5% pre and post-consumer recycled materials, regardless of subsequent processing.
The value of recycling for Cervotessile
Recycling cotton, viscose and polyester allows us to limit the use of virgin resources, reduce waste, energy and water consumption and transform waste into genuine textile masterpieces. It is not only an ethical choice, but a crucial step towards a circular and sustainable economy.
NINFEA, ANEMONE, CERVINO AND MADESIMO: Polyester from plastic bottles
Plastic bottles, post-consumer waste, can be processed and used to produce recycled yarn. Our process involves recovering the bottles, shredding and transforming them into polyester chips to produce the yarn as the normal spinning process. This innovative practice not only reduces the amount of polluting plastic and waste but it also allows us to offer you high quality products with a reduced environmental impact.
Our recycled viscose
Viscose, also known as artificial silk, is obtained through the dissolution of plant cellulose. Its process is long and complicated and involves a series of steps to achieve the desired result. Cervotessile’s sustainable option comes from pre-consumer recycling of cotton linter.
Recycled cotton: a sustainable option
Through production waste from spinning mills, we obtain rought yarns with still good characteristics, useful for the creation of some of our articles. The re-emission of this waste into the production cycle leads to a lower consumption of raw material, which translates into savings in soil, CO2, water and energy.
With this in mind, we have two important certifications to date:
