Marchi & Fildi presents new range of Ecotec smart cotton yarns at Filo

Marchi & Fildi, the manufacturer of natural, artificial and synthetic fibre yarns, is presenting its Ecotec by Marchi & Fildi smart cotton at the Filo exhibition for fibres and yarns that is taking place in Milan, Italy, this week.

Ecotec by Marchi & Fildi officially debuted at Première Vision in Paris last February, featured in the Yarns section. Now, at Filo, it presents the first Innovations collection for the next A/W 2017-2018, created by its dedicated international team.

Now, a smarter yarn is available in a fashion-savvy colour range for customers to choose from, the company reports.

Certified manufacturing process

Ecotec by Marchi & Fildi is made in Italy from a traceable and certified manufacturing process that turns 100% pre-dyed cotton textile clippings into colourful Ecotec yarns.

Thanks to the process, the inevitable, left over inventories generated during the production of clothing are gathered and transformed into Ecotec yarns, naturally reducing waste and of course minimizing the use of raw resources, while at the same time maintaining the highest quality and efficiency standards.

According to the manufacturer, through this process the company saves in terms of water, CO2 and energy, as attested by the LCA study conducted by ICEA. According to the results, there are improvements up to 56.3% for greenhouse gases, up to 56,6% in energy consumption and up to 77.9% in terms of water usage, when using the company’s exclusive manufacturing process.


Ecotec, a new generation of cotton yarns, is said to be a refined, high performance and versatile yarn that can be used creatively in the production of new fashion fabric collections for knitwear, circular knits, wovens, jersey and hosiery, interior design applications, and home textiles in both the retail and contract sectors.

Ecotec is available as a stock service in a wide range of bright colours. There is also the possibility to supply “customized” colours and yarns in partnership projects thanks to the Marchi & Fildi R&D centre.

The benefits of the new yarn are ensured by its adherence to the main certifications that drive the market. Ecotec certifications include Oeko-Tex 100, GRS (Global Recycled Standard), Certified Quality System Company Iso, 9000:2008 ( Marchi & Fildi ), and TF (Traceability & Fashion).

Marchi & Fildi

Marchi & Fildi is a company based in Biella, Piedmont, Italy, that produces cotton yarns for the textile industry, providing a vast and specialized colour supply for a wide range of types and styles of yarn.

The attention to the new colours is a key element of the company’s innovation strategy. Research and quality control in fibres and brightly coloured, dyed yarns are an important part of the lab provided to the company clients in order to let them customize their purchase, the company reports.
