Re.Verso spins preconsumer wool waste into fashion fabrics

Feb '15
Re.Verso is a new textile platform, which recycles preconsumer textile waste, mainly, but not only, wool based and then is converted back into fibre using a mechanical process, then spun into yarns from which knitted and woven fashion fabrics are produced.

The fabrics are then made into finished garments in a traceable, transparent line of production that has garnered recognition as a best-practice model for eco-responsible manufacture. Iconic label, Gucci has incorporated Re.Verso cashmere in its A/W 15-16 line.

The Re.Verso program is the result of a collaboration between three top Italian mills, Nuova Fratelli Boretti, Green Line and Lanificio Stelloni, who together produce a fully integrated, 100 per cent ‘Made in Italy’ textile collection.

Alongside Re.Verso, Stelloni is also introducing a new collection of fabrics based on blends of Newlife with cotton which enhance the key characteristics of cotton, such as freshness, softness and breathability.

They also add to these, the technical performance qualities of Newlife such as easy care, easy wear, resilience, and crease resistance, in order to get a denim-inspired fashion look that also offers the best in terms of environmental impact!

Lanificio Stelloni, Nuova Fratelli Boretti and Green Line with Re.Verso are also C.L.A.S.S. eco-hub enterprise partners. Their collection will be showcased in the World Class Tour to the trend-setting fashion centres across the world.

For the Re.Verso program, Green Line is responsible for sourcing and sorting all the pre-consumer waste yarn and fabrics, while Nuova Fratelli Boretti converts the textile waste into into high quality, wool-centric fibre.

Lanificio Stelloni Andrea S.r.l. converts this fibre in to yarns and then high quality stylish, performing knitted and woven fabrics for the global fashion market. (AR)
