At Première Vision (PV) Paris to be held from September 17-19, Italian Converter, a manufacturer of fabrics for footwear, leather goods, clothing, etc, will celebrate its 25th anniversary and present ECO Kosmos, a cross-collection, a brand-new 'green line range' shining a light on the company's responsible path and unique 'blend' for fashion of tomorrow.

'The soul of sustainable fashion is an alchemy, a combined commitment and an act of responsibility' –will be the motto embossed in the collections and the values of Italian Converter, according to a press release by the company. The acronym ECO stands for Ecologic, Conversion, Optimisation; three unique concepts and values that truly embody Italian Converter DNA namely sustainability, transformative process and quality improvement.

For over 25 years, Italian Converter has created high-quality materials for some of the leading fashion and accessories brands. "Made in Italy and sustainability are part of our DNA," said Costantino Karazissis, founder of Italian Converter. "We believe that responsible sourcing and processes as well as a deep research into new technology pathways and a market-savvy taste for material design must be the starting point."

"We proudly collaborate with 120 skilled employees producing new hybrid material innovations daily, attracting partnerships from the best high-end brands both in Italy and abroad," said Karazissis.

ECO Kosmos is entirely traceable, transparent, 100 per cent made in Italy. The collection walks through a complete and balanced range of sustainable materials – from natural to eco high tech ones that are transformed, enriched and valued in 10 high-tech cutting-edge innovations by Italian Converter.

The natural line starts from bases of cotton bonded with Amni Soul Eco, an enhanced polyamide 6.6 that degrades within 5 years instead of decades, as other conventional ones do. The stretch innovations starts from bases in GRS-certified Newlife, a cutting-edge premium recycled polyester created using a high-tech conversion model. Through a mechanical process, used plastic bottles are turned into a top-quality polymer and yarn which is 100 per cent traceable and 100 per cent Made in Italy. The whole process takes place within a 100 square kilometre area in Piedmont in Northern Italy.

All the references make use only of water-based resins and Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex certified dyeing. The result is resistant and transpiring solutions which come with bold and high-performing features, with a soft touch or even with a silky, yet strong, and enveloping feel. The designs range from rustic to contemporary and nod to jacquard, 'authentic look' and 'drill' hints. The solutions are ideal for footwear, apparel and leather goods.

"But this is just the beginning," added Karazissis. "The next step we are going to implement in the ECO Kosmos cross-collection is a progressive integration of our triple-expertise, processes and R&D." (PC)
