Zegna Baruffa launches Organic Wool Line for Fall/Winter 2009/2010. This ecological line of yarns for woolen knitwear is created by Zegna Baruffa's extensive Research'. The raw material used is certified and guaranteed, for each individual batch, in accordance with stringent legislative standards of their country of origin.

The production areas, breeding techniques and collection methods (shearing) guarantee the preservation and safeguarding of the soil, the water and the air so as to maintain the alternation and natural qualities of the biological cycles, and the correct supply of the nutritional substances used for plant and animal life.

With regard to the raw material, the following conditions are also guaranteed: No use of pesticides. No use of chemical additives. No use of substances (even only potentially) harmful for the health of man or animals. No use of invasive techniques for looking after the animals.

The transformation of the raw material into finished yarn is performed by means of processes, biological/biodegradable systems completely free of chlorine and chlorine derivatives. The dyeing process respects the rules of the Oeko Tex 2 standard and, on request (for colours for which it is technically feasible), the Oeko Tex 1 standard.

The finishing phase is executed with natural products (natural fats, aloe, etc.), in full respect of bioecological practices. The product/process is currently subject to testing by an international organization (institut fur marktokologie-weinfelden-ch) with a view to obtaining GOTS (global organic textile standard) ecological certification. For its plant in borgosesia, the company has started the environmental management system certification procedure in accordance with the ISO 14001 standard.

Zegna Baruffa Lane Borgosesia's production is characterised by a totally vertically integrated system: in its two main manufacturing plants, located in Vallemosso and Borgosesia, and in the two ultra-modern plants of Roasio and Panital KFT in Hungary, the company runs internally all the processes that make it possible to transform a raw material into yarn.
