Clerici Tessuto and Parley for the Oceans, the leading environmental organisation addressing major threats towards oceans, has announced that it has sealed an agreement to produce luxury fabrics using a GRS (Global Recycle Standard) polyester yarn, crafted using  upcycled marine plastic debris intercepted from beaches, islands and coastal communities.
This agreement links high-end fabric production with Parley’s upcycled Ocean Plastic, aligning fashion and eco-innovation to help drive the Material Revolution needed to end marine plastic pollution. This approach follows and supports the Parley AIR Strategy to Avoid, Intercept, Redesign.
“We often see the fashion industry as a reflection of society, that purpose is the new luxury. Clerici Tessuto is  one of the most important textiles manufacturers in the world for the luxury sector this partnership strengthens the Parley mission to end the ‘Toxic Age’ and drive forward the ‘Material Revolution’ on a Global scale. Together we invite consumers to join the movement which defines our future on this planet one of creativity, collaboration and eco-innovation,” Cyrill Gutsch, Parley founder and CEO, said in a press release.
Clerici Tessuto worked to fine tune the production and finishing process to reach the quality requested by the luxury segment and obtain the best features for this polyester based cloth.
“We are really delighted to collaborate with Parley, sharing similar values on protecting our ecosystems and contributing to save our planet for future generations by both daily behaviour and our products. Clerici Tessuto is able to produce high quality and lasting luxury fabrics by mixing deep knowledge of the industry, top level creativity and sustainable value chain,” Stefano Bernasconi CEO at Clerici Tessuto said. 
“Parley is an amazing and inspiring movement able to design and realise initiatives focused on changing the perspective and mindset of consumers. By this agreement Clerici Tessuto will transform the Parley GRS yarns into high end fabrics dedicated to top worldwide brands for both beachwear and womenswear. Working together allows the two companies to contribute to the changes required by the fashion industry, enabling a transition toward a circular economy and create a better future by outstanding and impressive initiatives and fabrics,” Bernasconi said.
