Leading Canadian apparel brand, Rachel, has launched two tights styles for the North American market, made using the innovative Q-Nova by Fulgar fibre. Fulgar, headquartered in Italy, is the international leader in the man-made fibre market with the production and distribution of polyamide 6.6 and covered elastomers in the textile and technical sector.

Created by Carolyne and Mélanie, Rachel is for all women who want to feel beautiful, comfortable and feminine every day, with an accessible and essential wardrobe accessory. Its entire tights collection featuring printed tights, colourful tights and more, are produced in Italy in factories that respect environmental and ethical work standards. The company’s encounter with Q-Nova by Fulgar, the innovative fibre made using regenerated raw materials, has resulted in two eco-friendly tights styles that are bound to become a modern must-have, according to Fulgar.

This month, Rachel launched the first release from its new eco tights collection featuring its classic polka dot tight and bestselling over-the-knee tights, taking on step forward for sustainability, as the first Canadian hosiery brand to add green products to its offer. It’s an important initiative, for which the brand chose the cutting-edge recycled yarn by Fulgar, a world-leading company at the forefront of Italy’s hosiery sector. Fulgar’s philosophy is based on developing new-concept man-made fibres, and the company has a long-standing commitment to research and innovation in its drive for sustainability.

Fulgar’s green portfolio is growing all the time, and Q-Nova fibre is the first speciality developed by the company in this field. This eco-sustainable fibre makes the company’s production processes more sustainable, leading to a reduction in CO2 emissions and water use. Q-Nova is made exclusively from raw materials regenerated through a mechanical process that takes place without the use of chemicals that could compromise the sustainability of the end product.

“We’re proud that more and more international brands are choosing our fibres to make eco- sustainable products. We believe it’s crucial to promote the value and importance of sustainability within the fashion industry so that companies become increasingly aware of this idea and begin to offer consumers affordable, high-quality products that respect the environment,” Alan Garosi, marketing manager of Fulgar said.
