Denim producer Candiani has won the ITMA Sustainable Innovation Award for Candiani Re-Gen, a ‘circular denim’ fabric from regenerated and recycled raw materials. 50 per cent of the fabric comprises TencelxRefibra Lyocell made of pulp from cotton scraps and wood pulp using Lenzing’s closed-loop process, remaining is post-industrial recycled Candiani fibres.

Candiani’s fabrics are also dyed using green technologies, resulting in substantial reduction in the use of water and chemicals in the fabric production and jean washing process.

According to Alberto Candiani, president of Candiani, the fabric was created to commemorate Candiani’s 80th anniversary. “We are a strong believer in sustainability. In creating the Re-Gen fabric, we leveraged Lenzing’s Tencel Lyocell fibres with Refibra technology, and combined it with our in-house expertise to create an innovative product that is fashionable and environmentally friendly at the same time," explained Alberto.

Nominated for the award by ITMA 2019 exhibitor Lenzing Ag, Candiani received the trophy from The European Committee of Textile Machinery Manufacturers (CEMATEX) president Fritz P Mayer, at a presentation ceremony on the opening day of ITMA 2019. 

“We would like to congratulate both Candiani and Lenzing for their excellent collaboration. CEMATEX launched the ITMA Sustainable Innovation Award in 2015 as we would like to encourage greater industry collaboration and synergies, as well as spur more research and development efforts. Ultimately, we need innovation to drive our business and contribute to a more circular economy,” Fritz said.

The two other finalists of the ITMA Industry Excellence Award - Levi Strauss & Co, and Lee – were also praised for their efforts to introduce green innovations into their products and processes.

Winner of the first ITMA Sustainable Innovation Award in 2015, Levi Strauss & Co launched FLX Customisation Studio which revolutionalises in-store customisation by allowing customers to pick their denim finish and create a unique pair of jeans in less than two hours. The mobile studio uses sustainable garment finishing technologies and operates on 100 per cent recycled water. It leverages ITMA exhibitor Jeanologia’s water recycling system, H2Zero. (RR)
