Fulgar, an Italian leader in the production of man-made, eco-sustainable fabrics, presents the most innovative new products at the Première Vision event in Paris this week, with its hi-tech and sustainable yarns Evo, Q-Nova and Amni Soul Eco – the “key ingredients in creating the finest collections of cutting-edge fabrics”.

Among the producers presenting their latest collections made using innovative green yarns by Fulgar are Alto Milanese, Borgini, Clerici Tessuti, Eusebio, Fantasie Tricot, Fieratex, Fiveol, Gipitex, Iluna, Jackytex, Luxury Jersey, Maglificio Brugnoli, Maglificio Ripa, Olmetex, Pontetorto, Serates, Sofileta, Tessitura Colombo, and Tessitura Corti.

Evo by Fulgar is the innovative, organic-origin Din Certco certified yarn. It is made from castor oil, a renewable resource that does not require large amounts of water or take up land that can be used for growing food crops. Evo is ultra-light, super stretch and highly breathable. It is also quick-drying, non-iron and offers natural thermal and bacteriostatic properties. “These features give it exceptional versatility, a perfect solution for the clothing industry. Its most distinctive benefits also provide maximum comfort, unique performance and respect for nature,” the company reports.

Q-Nova by Fulgar is a 100% Italian made 6.6 eco-sustainable polyamide obtained exclusively from regenerated raw materials. A mechanical process is used to regenerate and upgrade selected production waste in the form of polymers, which are then used for further processing. The company has obtained a number of green certifications – Global Recycled Standard, Ecolabel EU and inclusion on the Higg Index, developed by the SAC (Sustainable Apparel Coalition) – which assesses a garment’s environmental impact over its entire lifecycle.

“Now Q-Nova by Fulgar offers even more – a special ingredient included in the polyamide has enabled the development of an innovative traceability system called ID (short for Identity). This makes it possible for consumer organisations and government bodies to check the authenticity of the fibre’s recycled origins at all times,” the manufacturer explains. “A further improvement of ID is already being developed – within a few years it will be possible to inform consumers by using a special scanner and garment label to identify the eco-sustainable origins of yarns directly at the sales point.”

Amni Soul Eco is a 6.6 biodegradable polyamide that makes it possible to produce garments that can decompose rapidly at the end of their lifecycle. In conditions of anaerobic disposal their special composition enables bacteria to access and digest the waste material, speeding up the bio-degradation process. Amni Soul Eco is eliminated by the eco-system in around five years, while other fibres take decades to decompose. Softness, comfort, dyeing quality, breathability and exclusive Easy Care characteristics are just some of the benefits offered by this innovative eco-friendly fibre.
