Radici to focus on eco-compatible products at Heimtextil
Dec '12
In addition to its Starlight and Radyarn flame-retardant, bacteriostatic and UV-stabilized polyester yarn lines, at Heimtextil 2013 RadiciGroup will shine the spotlight on its eco-compatible product lines: r-Starlight, r-Radyarn and CornLeaf.

r-Starlight and r-Radyarn

These radicigroup brands stand for high sustainability, safety, quality and performance. The yarns are made from 100% post-consumer recycled PET bottles and are the result of a multi-stage process – from post-consumer bottle collection and reprocessing to yarn production – all taking place in Europe and monitored at every step.

Available in a variety of counts, colours and lustres in textured, taslan and flat versions, they can also be made in various cross-section shapes, from standard ones (such as round and trilobal) to special ones (such as multilobal, multichannel and hollow trilobal). The main applications in the furnishings segment include curtains, linings, wall coverings/upholstery and trimmings.


A solution-dyed yarn produced from polylactic acid (PLA), a 100% natural biopolymer made from renewable vegetable resources. Its properties and production process make CornLeaf a product that fully meets eco-sustainability requirements, such as lower CO2 emissions and reduced water and energy consumption. The product is available in a wide palette of highly lightfast, wash resistant colours and combines the advantages of natural and synthetic fibres: lightness, tenacity, comfort, UV-resistance and safety.
