“Also Deep by Ripa colours do not present any of those white or grey nuances caused by the untinted elastomer, a phenomenon which commonly occurs with polyamides, viscose, wool, cotton and silk,” it added.
The fabric uses special yarns made from Roica Colour Perfect family, which premiered for the first time at Interfilière Paris in July 2015.
“These are premium yarns, not only by virtue of their excellent elasticity, but also because of their particular characteristic, which enables them to be dyed in combination with all above mentioned fibres,” the company explained.
Deep by Ripa also uses an innovative technology; Onetone by Erca; specifically aimed at optimising the process of dyeing which in combination with cellulosic fibres, it offers great depth of colour and excellent colour-fastness.
Moreover, Erca is attested Bluesign along with the auxiliaries it employs for the Onetone process on the fabrics realised with premium stretch threads by Roica Colour Perfect.
“Maglificio Ripa is not only a guarantee in terms of fabric research and development but also of style through continuous monitoring of new trends and market requirements,” Maglificio Ripa observed.
