Europa displays denim fabrics at Munich Fabric Start
Lanificio Europa, a leading fabric wholesaler from Italy, is displaying its innovative cotton stretch fabrics for denim at Munich Fabric Start, in hall 6 booth C06. The leading international textile trade show is being held from September 4-6, 2018, in Germany. Lanificio Europa creates collections backed by passion, commitment, and expertise in textiles.

Europa fabrics are produced upholding advanced ecological standards, as evidenced by OekoTex Standard 100 certification. Europa selects premium innovative smart raw materials to produce responsible stretch denim.

The company has a Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) membership, a not-for-profit organisation that exists to make global cotton production better for the people who produce it, better for the environment it grows in and better for the sector’s future. Through BCI and its partners, farmers receive training on how to use water efficiently, care for the health of the soil and natural habitats, reduce use of the most harmful chemicals and apply decent work principles, the company said in a press release.

Europa follows Newlife, a high-tech conversion model that transforms fully traceable post-consumer plastic bottles into a high-tech polymer using a mechanical process entirely made in Italy. Creating a GRS (Global Recycled Standard) certified quality yarn that performs and offers significant savings; 94 per cent reduction of water usage, 60 per cent energy reduction, 32 per cent reduction of carbon dioxide emissions in comparison to conventional polyester.

Europa’s premium stretch articles use the GRS (Global Recycled Standard) version 4 certified Roica yarn. Roica is a premium stretch fibre produced by Asahi Kasei. Europa internally prepares its own stretch yarn to combine sustainable Roica yarns with Newlife. Therefore, obtaining a smart yarn entirely made of GRS certified materials. Europa’s goal is to achieve 70-80 per cent of the collection with sustainable stretch yarn with Roica Eco-Smart family.

The company also uses Cupro by Asahi Kasei, a one-of-a-kind, new generation, natural smart material with elegant beauty and touch. Innovhub-SSI, a third-party lab test certifies Cupro as a fully biodegradable end of life option. This season, Europa has developed a beautiful stretch denim with 10 per cent cashmere. While some stretch denim contains at least 33 per cent of processed wool treated with an internally developed finishing that makes the denim stable in size. (GK)
