“Eurojersey represents the distinctive style and creativity of the Made in Italy label, interpreted by its Sensitive Fabrics, with a singular and virtuous industrial model which promotes resource-saving values by applying them to all manufacturing processes,” the company explains. “Attentive to environmental issues thanks to an all-vertical production chain, the company manages to control the entire manufacturing process to the benefit of the local economy and the environment.”

The company’s successful partnership with WWF Italia continues through a new three-year collaboration with a focus on water as a planetary resource. The collaboration takes form of multiple activities, such as the calculation of the water footprint of Sensitive Fabrics, the problem of plastic in seawater and a campaign to increase the awareness of sustainable fishing and the protection of sharks with the #SafeSharks Project.

Eurojersey has also promoted a scientific study in collaboration with the CNR – National Research Council of Biella, aimed at conducting a comparative analysis between Sensitive Fabrics and other man-made fabrics of different blends to identify any release of micro plastic particles after washing and drying garments.

“Bearing in mind that a garment made up in Sensitive Fabrics requires very little maintenance and water consumption, as well being quick to dry, it ensures that it has an above average lifecycle and a lower environmental impact,” the company reports. “This research has led the company to seriously address the issue of micro plastics and to invest future resources to supply increasingly innovative solutions to continue to improve the quality and lifecycle of its fabrics.”

Eurojersey has also adhered to the ZDHC – Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals programme, an international organisation which studies the issue of hazardous substances in the global textiles industry. By joining the ZDHC programme, the company says it set out to address the issue of hazardous chemicals and their associated risks in a systemic manner, by integrating special measures and controls in the manufacturing cycles of Sensitive Fabrics, in order to reduce the presence of such substances in the processing phases.
