Marchi & Fildi launches yarn made from fabric clippings

Italian yarn producer Marchi & Fildi has developed Ecotec yarn, through a manufacturing process that turns pre-dyed textile clippings into 100 per cent cotton yarns, with huge water and energy savings and is completely traceable.

Ecotec will be launched for the fall-winter 2016/2017 season, and will be exclusively presented during the World C.L.A.S.S. Tour and at C.L.A.S.S. showrooms and the Marchi & Fildi headquarters.

The fully 'Made in Italy' yarn reduces greenhouse effect by up to 56.3 per cent, saves energy consumption up to 56.6 per cent and also use of water by up to 77.9 per cent,” a C.L.A.S.S press release said.

Ecotec is derived from left over fabrics pieces generated during production of clothing and which are usually discarded, generating an expense for their disposal and are also a waste of high quality fabrics.

“Thanks to the excellence of this exclusive process developed by Marchi & Fildi, these clippings are salvaged and transformed into Ecotec yarns,” C.L.A.S.S explained.

The features of the yarn allow to drastically reduce use of water and energy in the production process, so it is not necessary to use chemical products for dyeing.

A study carried out by Istituto per la Certificazione Etica e Ambientale (ICEA) showed that the impact on the greenhouse effect, on energy and water use is halved compared to that of traditional cotton.

Compared to the traditional process of producing cotton yarns, transforming fabric clippings is a process that requires the use of far less resources and so becomes a product with an exceptionally low environmental impact.

According to C.L.A.S.S, the Ecotec production process makes it possible to counterbalance the impact of the production of traditionally produced raw cotton and cotton yarn.

The raw material and the innovative process employed in the production of Ecotec carry the 'Made in Italy' certification and are completely traceable throughout the whole supply chain.

Ecotec has been able to bag the Oeko-Tex 100 certificate, Global Recycled Standard (GRS) certificate, ISO 9000:2008 certificate, Traceability & Fashion (T&F) certificate and Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) certificate.

The company further added that the Ecotec yarn can be used for the production of new collection fashion fabrics in wovens, knit, circular knits, home textiles, jersey and hosiery. (AR)
