Riley Studio, a British brand that uses recycled waste materials and responsibly-produced natural fibres to create gender-neutral garments for environmentally-aware consumers, has chosen Fulgar eco-yarns for its new collection.

The company’s clothing is designed to last, and is intended to be worn for life, not just a single season. Riley Studio has used Q-Nova by Fulgar for eight of its designs, sporty yet elegant pants and track suits with a refined, minimal look.

Fulgar, the Italian brand and a leading international textile company in the manufacture of man-made fibres, has a long-standing commitment to sustainability in both product and corporate context. Launched five years ago, Q-Nova is an eco-friendly fibre that makes a company’s production process more sustainable because it is made exclusively from regenerated raw materials using a mechanical, non-chemical process.

The product has obtained European Ecolabel EU and international Global Recycled Standard certifications. In 2017 it was included on the Higg Index, developed by the SAC (Sustainable Apparel Coalition), which measures and scores the environmental impact of the garment’s entire life cycle.
