Innovative green fabrics are playing an ever-greater role in the runway shows. A commitment to sustainability is now a must for fashion designers and brands.

Fulgar, an international leader in the production of new-concept man-made fibres, once again has a significant presence on the catwalks with its innovative fabrics made using its eco-friendly fibres. Daniele Niboli has chosen Fulgar yarns for his new Spring/Summer 2020 collection. 

“Eclectic garments that celebrate the evocative atmosphere of southern Spain, a mix of fabrics and combinations that pay tribute to sustainability in a perfect balance of creativity and quality. These key values have shaped the development of a collection for which Niboli has chosen Fulgar among others as a partner to provide exclusive, sustainable Made in Italy products,” the company reports.

“This encounter with Fulgar and the brand’s green portfolio has led to the development of some of the fabrics made with innovative fibres recovered from low environmental impact yarns like the ultralight black Jersey made with Q-Nova by Fulgar recycled yarn and used in the production of stockings and tights with devore satin pattern.

Q-Nova is the eco-friendly fibre by Fulgar that makes the company’s production processes possible because it is obtained from regenerated raw materials through a mechanical, not chemical, process.

This innovative yarn has already obtained a series of green certifications, including Global Recycled Standard and Ecolabel EU. It is now also listed on the HIGG INDEX, which was developed by the SAC (Sustainable Apparel Coalition) to assess the environmental impact of a garment’s entire lifecycle.
