Filpucci, an Italian leader in the manufacture of creative yarns for quality knitwear, will take part in the 83rd edition of Pitti Filati, which will be held from 27-29 June in Florence, presenting its innovative products, high-end knitwear and creative yarns – all resulting from the Smart Innovation strategy the company has been committed to.
The manufacturer, based in Tuscany, says research, style and fashion have been key in driving Filpucci’s responsible approach to innovation. The GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) and OCS (Organic Content Standard) certifications obtained by the Filpucci dyeing plant add to the Clear to Wear (CTW) standard developed by Inditex Group and achieved in 2014 and to the Detox commitment, which was signed in February 2016.
“Not only the best raw materials, but also an established know-how in the fields of dyeing and finishing have always been key to responsible innovation. This concept extends to every Filpucci collection and its ever-increasing offer, the roughly twenty innovative new items, the woolen line of carded yarns and the real spearhead of premium fashion, the Collection,” the company says.
“Among this season’s new offerings are Baby Camel Re.Verso, RWS- certified merino organic wool, Re.Verso cashmere, organic silks and FSC-certified viscose.”
The achievement of further certifications, such as the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) for viscose also demonstrates the care and respect towards the ecosystem, according to the manufacturer. The RWS (Responsible Wool Standard) finally guarantees the use of wool coming from livestock managed under rigorous criteria oriented towards the wellbeing of animals and the reduction of environmental impact.
“Filpucci Group is all about a constant vocation towards new generation values and a reliable, traceable and transparent manufacturing process, as shown by the Re.Verso circular economy supply chain, of which the group is a unique ambassador in the field of high-end/low-impact knitwear yarns,” the company explains.
“With quality always in mind, Filpucci Group represents a corporate model that has made of sustainability a real mission, embarking on complex paths that have brought great results with fashionable textile solutions led by ethnical and sustainable values.”
Filpucci’s products have become part of Patagonia collections, an important acknowledgement from the brand. “We are always on the hunt for the highest performing, lowest impact materials. We were thrilled to find Re.Verso (95/5 transformed) cashmere yarn from Filpucci. It allowed us to create a range of products with the insulative and soft properties of cashmere while adhering to our mission statement; build the best product, cause no unnecessary harm,” says Patagonia.
