Iluna Group's smart laces have been chosen by Intimissimi for its new Green Collection. “Smart because beautiful, innovative and responsible and totally made with recycled yarns even in the stretch part,” Iluna says.

The premium ingredients are recycled polyamide yarn Q-NOVA by Fulgar, a fibre made with regenerated raw materials that is Global Recycled Standard (GRS) certified, and GRS certified premium stretch fiber ROICA EF by Asahi Kasei that gives superior comfort and performance fit. The laces are also combined with Bluesign certified silk, to ensure a fibre production chain aimed at improving environmental performance, Iluna says.

Iluna Group started out in 1969 from an idea spawned by founder Luigi Annovazzi - the production of pre-shaped bra cups. In 1985 Iluna acquired the Ondoli di Cuggiono plant, specialized in the production of stretch lace, which was challenging the French Leavers lace.

The products which constitute the core business of the group are elastic and hard lace for underwear, corsetry, hosiery, beachwear and apparel, seamless items using Karl Mayer technology as well as microfibre fabric and tulle. Recently Iluna Lab was added, a hub of technological and stylistic innovations. Iluna’s spearheads are the Black Label series, enriched by ultrathin lace and the GRS certified Green Label line.

ROICA Advanced fit for living, is a premium stretch fibre with an innovative range of smart functions to suit the modern wardrobe. ROICA shapes comfort with high quality, performance and fit, adding value to everyday living for sport, activewear, intimates, fashion and career wear. ROICA is made by Asahi Kasei offering also a range of yarns, marketed as Bemberg, designed to confer a cool, supple drape with a sensual silk-like touch.
