In these times when the topic of sustainable fabrics has become a central issue for the fashion industry, Ratti is aiming to operate its business in a more sustainable way in order to keep up with the expectations and demands of its customers. For these reasons, Ratti’s desire to improve its range of fine fabrics and sustainable Italian fabrics with new cutting-edge techniques and protocols has become more and more compelling.
NOT ONLY SUSTAINABLE FABRICS
The sustainable fabrics offering has expanded since the first Responsible Collection was launched in 2017 to such an extent that in 2020 the Responsible Collection was abolished with the announcement that all Ratti collections were now made of sustainable fabrics.
To date, Ratti has 200 articles among the different ecological and certified fibres including GOTS organic cotton and hemp, through to the most eco-sustainable of fabrics such as GOTS organic silk, fine Italian fabrics of the Lake Como basin, and linen.
There are two new additions to the corporate responsibility certifications: the Forest Stewardship Council FSC certification for viscose products made from sustainable forest materials and the GRS certification for high-quality polyester fabrics, nylon and recycled wool in accordance with the dictates of the Recycled Claim Standard RCS that have been extended to new compositions.
Among the new GOTS certifications, organic wool is carefully selected from non-intensive farms where the animals are sheared at the right times of the year and, above all, thanks to very strict standards, are fed natural feedstuffs.
FABRICS FOR ECO-FRIENDLY FASHION
As you can understand, the sustainable fabrics produced by Ratti move in step with the certifications that the group has obtained over the years to protect, not only the master craftsmens who work within the company, but also their experience and creativity, so that each season sees the creation of eco-friendly and sustainable fashion.
