Lace specialist Iluna Group will show a brand new naturally dyed Yoga Capsule Collection for the first time at the upcoming Milano Unica (4-6 February 2020, Hall 12 booth E06).

“Iluna Group is ready to attend the main trade show dedicated to all fashion professionals oriented to high quality and innovation, reference point for the textile and accessories sector attended by the largest and most significant Italian and European producers,” the company says enthusiastically.

“A combination of design and advanced sustainable features, a range of developments that mix innovation, aesthetics and quality, with ‘ethical’ lace and stockings, where qualitative standards go hand in hand with fashion content: this is Iluna, showing in Milano its responsible offer and a unique Yoga capsule collection, part of the Green Label collection.”

A smart approach, accurately selected materials, know-how in processes and a watchful eye on the ecosystem are the key elements that the Cuggiono-based company says characterize it and make it truly a leader in its own sector.

“The Yoga Capsule collection itself, being part of Green Label collection, is also characterized by the inclusion of responsible premium ingredients such as GRS certified Q-NOVA from Fulgar, made for more than half by pre-consumption waste, and the GRS certified premium stretch yarn ROICA™ EF made by more than 50% pre-consumer recycled content,” Iluna explains.

“Produced by Asahi Kasei, this yarn belongs to the ROICA Eco-Smart family, a range of the world’s first responsibly made premium stretch fibers including ROICA smart yarns and its impressive certifications. The capsule is also enriched by natural based GOTS certified dyestuffs, a safe alternative to the chemical ones. Its ten shades colour characterized by durability respond to the OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certification.”

“Also on show during the Milanese fair will be the exclusive Bioline, the biodegradable collection made with biodegradable polyamide 6.6 yarn Amni Soul Eco by Fulgar and premium stretch fibre Roica V550 - belonging to the Roica Eco-Smart family - and matching the need for elasticity and comfort and offering additional and relevant circular economy advantages linked to material health as proved by a Gold Level Material Health Certificate by the Cradle to Cradle Product Innovation Institute for a safe and biological end of life cycle.”

“A continuous commitment to responsible solutions made Iluna Group the only manufacturer of lace that since 2017 using recycled stretch throughout all the range of its elastic lace. Among the novelties flounces Jacquardtronic and multicolour all-over Raschel as well as jacquardtronic galoons with the same premium ingredients mentioned above,” Iluna says.

“The excellence of Iluna Group is 100% built on responsible innovation, granted by the most important certifications. The creation of Smart lace, rigorously Made in Italy, is today certified Global Recycled Standard (GRS).  Today Iluna represents a reference point for the international markets and boasts products with OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certification, a Smart Oriented example to show the widespread public of the Sustainable Thinking Exhibition that will be held at Salvatore Ferragamo Museum until 12 April 12 2020,” Iluna concludes.
