Cifra, a leader in production of knitwear with WKS technology which is internationally patented, is investing in research and design thanks to the expansion of its design department and the addition of new eco-sustainable yarn offerings. Cifra is an Italian company known as warp knit centre of excellence that produces garments with an exclusive technology.

“Our work is customised at every stage so that we may offer a completely exclusive product, created with the most current, increasingly cutting-edge technology on the market. Our designing first starts within the design office, today equipped with ten CAD workstations (which adds up to a total of 80 hours of original drawings being made per day), and three specialised pattern makers; a tried and true laboratory of ideas and experimentation which represents the heart of the company. The new patents, whether for ornamental or functional purposes, are aimed at protecting a recognised uniqueness and our know-how, and they allow us to offer a guarantee at every stage of our creative and production process, from fibre selection to graphics, with the focus kept as always on an eco-responsible approach,” Cesare Citterio, CEO of Cifra said in a press release.

Econyl by Aquafil is a Nylon 6 fibre made 100 per cent with completely regenerated waste materials which would otherwise end up in landfills or in the sea. It has to do with a nylon thread to be exact, coming from recovered plastic materials: fishing nets, and more generally, scraps of fabrics used by the textile industry which are salvaged and regenerated through a complex process of decomposition; QNova by Fulgar, a pre-consumer Nylon 6.6 recycled and eco-sustainable fibre derived exclusively from regenerated raw materials, and produced by Fulgar according to the criteria and requirements of modern traceability.

Q-Nova consists of waste materials coming from the company’s main production cycle. Materials as such cannot be reused in any other way and should be disposed of externally as waste; the new project with Starlight by Radici yarn, derived from the post-consumption of PET bottles, offers a valid post-consumer alternative; there are new additions also in the area of merino wool, the polyamide component will be replaced with Amni Soul Eco by Fulgar that allows for garments to be created that can rapidly decompose once disposed of and placed in landfills. In favour of a circular model of sustainability, all these yarns will be combined with Eco Smart by Roica elastomer which lends a very high level of biodegradability to the fabrics. (GK)
