The Italian textile research and development center, Canepa Evolution, presented its results on developing a sustainable method of weaving high quality textiles with minimal consumption of water named ‘Kitotex’ at the recent textile trade show Milano Unica.
 
At the presentation under the theme ‘Savethewater, Technological innovation and reduction of environmental impact in the textile industry: the progress of Canepa’, Carlotta Saibene Canepa of the Canepa Group said the company had been collaborating with various Italian research centers, including the National Research Council-Milan-ISMAC Biella and CNR-Itia Milan-Bari, to work closely with suppliers and customers, for whom a road show in Milan would be organized to discuss the application of the technology.
 
The research center developed the project under the campaign named ‘SavetheWater’ six months ago, and unveiled its latest findings regarding the application of ‘Kitotex’ in textile manufacturing processes at the trade show.
 
The Kitotex process provides a new preparation method for weaving yarns of superfine valuable fibers such as cashmere, camel, merino wool, silk, etc by means of a new technique called ‘sizing’ with the use of chitosan, a polymer that is made from food waste.
 
The technology allows a 60 percent reduction in water consumption in manufacturing thin natural fibers, with the use of chitosan, and also allows improving the dye affinities of the fabric by correcting the quality of the colors.
