Some of the most established excellences of the textile sector like Cifra, Iluna group, Rosti, and Sitip used Roica, the premium stretch fibre by Asahi Kasei, to launch face masks. Roica is the smart premium ingredient chosen by these companies to guarantee even more comfort, thanks to an elasticity provided by the fibre for perfect adherence to the skin.

Cifra presents the eco-sustainable version of the mask, the Ecomask, which combines the high performance of Cifra knitting technology with the sustainability of the materials used. The 100 per cent regenerated yarns create a 100 per cent sustainable mask with 83 per cent Econyl, and 17 per cent Roica V550 elastomer, the stretch fibre certified Cradle to Cradle Gold Health Level which allows excellent and lasting printability, as well as advantages regarding the circular economy as it does not release harmful substances into the test environment according to the Hohenstein Environmental Compatibility certification, Asahi Kasei said in a media statement.

Iluna, the European leader in the production of lace, has recently donated 400 protective ‘smart’ made with Roica EF, the world first GRS, Global Recycled Standard, certified elastomer and which uses 58 per cent of pre-consumer recycled content, mixed with Q-Nova by Fulgar. Multi-use, washable, bacteriostatic, breathable, and water-repellent prevention masks were given to San Gerardo Hospital in Monza to answer to the recently launched Call to action, by the green journalist Diana De Marsanich, with the responsible and innovative materials expert Giusy Bettoni of C.L.A.S.S. Eco Hub, the fashion designer Marina Spadafora of Fashion Revolution Italia, and the entrepreneur Simona Roveda of LifeGate.

Iluna has also launched its website dedicated to the direct sale of the different kind of masks all made with three layers, antibacterial and anti-drip treatment and washable up to ten times. Iluna has also created the ‘smart’ masks made with Roica EF, the world first GRS, Global Recycled Standard, certified elastomer and which uses 58 per cent of pre-consumer recycled content, mixed with Q-Nova by Fulgar. In addition to the ‘smart’ masks, available for women, men, and children, Iluna has created two special versions of lace masks, covered with refined lace. One embroidered on a cotton base and one with soft micro-fibre.

Rosti, historic knitwear factory based in Brembate and specialised in the design and production of cycling clothing with the best technical fabrics and the most advanced technologies, has put its experience at the service of the production of protective masks washable up to 20 times, made with Sitip fabric and with the anti-drop treatment Ecoacquazero. Fascinating and protective like a second skin, the masks are sold in a pack of ten pieces with captivating, colourful, geometric and original graphics, designed for every personality. Rosti masks contain the premium stretch fibre, Roica Resistance, a family of premium stretch yarn with particular performances of resistance and durability.
