Rivolta Carmignani gets OEKO-TEX Standard 1000 certificate

It has been synonymous with top quality since 1867 – Rivolta Carmignani S.p.A., a traditional manufacturer of luxury bed linen, table linen and bathroom textiles for hotels, restaurants and other commercial customers, in November 2010 became the first company in Italy to be certified under the OEKO-TEX Standard 1000 for its environmentally-friendly and socially responsible production conditions.

As a fully integrated producer, with 140 employees and an annual turnover of 18 million euros, Rivolta Carmignani combines all stages of production from weaving, treating and finishing the fabric to manufacturing and embroidering the finished products at its site in Macherio in northern Italy. Its ideas and designs for linen collections are created in the company's own Design and Style office, in close cooperation with customers. Then they are produced to meet individual specifications – which of course includes weaving in or embroidering the customer's logo or emblem if required.

All items go through strict quality control processes at every stage and before delivery, so as to ensure that they meet the high standards of the prestigious luxury hotels, spa and health establishments and elegant gourmet restaurants which belong to the company's extensive clientele of about 10,000 businesses in Italy, the United States of America, Europe, Mexico, Canada, the United Arab Emirates, the Far East and Japan. Rivolta Carmignani also supplies numerous commercial laundries, cruise companies and airlines with their linen.

Bed linen, table linen and towels from Rivolta Carmignani are made of the finest raw materials such as Egyptian cotton, flax or polyester/cotton blends, and, in addition to the outstanding quality of the materials and the classic designs, are distinguished by being very hardwearing and resistant to washing, therefore having a very long service life. "But," says managing director Dr. Aldo Rivolta, "our main aim is to offer our customers a product range that is as varied as possible, so that it will perfectly match the architecture and ambience of their particular establishment and contribute to the well-being of their guests."

Another very important quality characteristic in this context is that the products are entirely safe and healthy. In this respect, the company attaches great importance to the independent certification of its products under OEKO-TEX Standard 100. The wide-ranging criteria for the standard guarantee the requisite safety, particularly in sensitive product areas like bedding and bed linen.

"Innovation, quality and style have always been our hallmarks," insists Aldo Rivolta. "Now, with our certification under the OEKO-TEX Standard 1000, we are going a step further. We are not only offering our customers products which are sustainable in use because of their particular properties and the excellent value for money that they represent. Now customers can also be confident that the articles were produced in sustainable conditions. For many of them, this is most definitely an important additional quality feature and it is perfectly in keeping with their own corporate philosophy. We as a company benefit from certification because it enables us to make our production processes even more efficient than before."
