For Fall/Winter 2019 Calzedonia is presenting a new line of eco-friendly tights made using Q-Nova, the innovative recycled yarn produced by Fulgar, a world leader in production of high-quality manmade fibres. Its exclusive portfolio of low environmental impact products has caught the interest of Calzedonia, a leader in legwear and beachwear sectors.

For its first line inspired by green concerns, Calzedonia has chosen Q-Nova, a 100 per cent Made in Italy eco-sustainable polyamide 6.6 yarn made from Global Recycled Standard (GRS 2015-005 certified by ICEA) and Ecolabel EU certified regenerated raw materials.

A special ingredient included in the polyamide, Q-Nova by Fulgar also offers an innovative traceability system identity, making it possible to verify the authenticity of the yarn’s recycled origins.

Available in 40, 60 and 80 denier models, the new tights are made from waste materials that could not be used in any other way within the textile production chain. The material selected is re-melted through a KM-zero mechanical regeneration process leading to lower CO2 emissions, reduced water consumption and the use of energy from renewable resources. This revolutionary green awareness has won Calzedonia Global Recycled Standard certification.
