How can we make sustainability in fashion more accessible? What are you doing to help facilitate that?

We are quite aware of this issue, having been amongst the first ones to offer GOTS-certified fabrics many years ago. Today, we also provide Global Recycled Standard (GRS) articles featuring recycled yarns from pre- and post-consumer.

What new research is going on to bring around more sustainable shirting fabrics?

We are constantly searching for new yarns and researching production innovations that can allow us to reach a lower environmental impact compared to the traditional modus operandi.

Are you involved in any futuristic projects or tie-ups at present?

We are deeply involved in circular economy processes, having joined the 'Circular Fashion' platform. We are offering our customers sustainable products to help create a new culture, while boosting a new way of entrepreneurship. We think this represents the only way to achieve a significant and positive change for our whole society.

What kind of investments are you planning in your company? Will you be adding more manufacturing facilities?

In our current and future investments, we are always looking for new solutions in terms of productions that will be able to implement systems and machineries to achieve a new way to work and produce in a more and more sustainable manner. We are truly aware of the importance of realising a constant update of our plants.

What upgradations in machinery has your manufacturing unit been witness to? Kindly share at length.

Every season we invest, research and implement both raw materials research and consequent manufacturing activities to offer a quality product that is characterised by a great amount of creativity and yet able to be truly sustainable. This approach has allowed us to obtain significant achievements, especially on certifications such as GOTS, GRS and BCI.

What was the turnover in the last fiscal and what more can we expect from you in the next few years?

The turnover in the last fiscal was €43 million. I think you can definitely expect a constant growth, both in Italy and abroad, linked to a more detailed and mixed product offer, along with an implemented service closer than ever to customers. Impeccable quality will continue to be our trademark, and we also foresee an even greater step into the world of sustainability as a leader of this important change. (PC)
