NEW PRODUCTS, SERVICES, TECHNOLOGIES ARISING FROM THE REUSE AND RECYCLING OF MATERIALS
Our philosophy has always been built on a strong enhancement of artisanal and cultural resources, as well as on investments in sustainability, technology and research in order to be able to respond to the needs of a market from which more and more requests for clarity and transparency come. With this in mind, design investments and production choices have been guided in order to always seek sustainable solutions, making our headquarters in Guanzate an arena of real experimentation between innovation and product, in which the new Second Life project finds concreteness.
2ndLIFE FIBERS – NEW SUSTAINABLE WADDING
Formulated on the basis of specific application needs, this new sustainable wadding is created by reusing/recycling silk fibres, setting a new standard in the world of sports and casualwear. This is the perfect answer that enriches and diversifies the offer for a market that requires increasingly sustainable products, also ensuring a high level of customer satisfaction.
Designed by the Ratti and Freudenberg research and development team, 2ndLIFE FIBERS transforms reused/recycled silk into insulation with excellent technical performance while establishing a versatile connection to the outdoors, whether mountain peaks or the greenery of a city park.
This unique, light and breathable wadding is an innovative insulator capable of balancing thermal comfort inside the garment. 2ndLIFE FIBERS pushes the classic concept of outdoor clothing to create a sustainable, season-less product. By reusing and recycling noble fibres, Ratti and Freudenberg confirm their interest in sustainability and environmental issues, going beyond the most complete respect for the rules of circular economy, with the primary goal of minimising environmental impact.
