Environmental sustainability

DESIGN TO PROTECT. DESIGN TO RESPECT.
There isn't a universally shared definition of what sustainability means. There are many different points of view on what it is and how it can be achieved. We believe this is one of the best definitions: Essentially, sustainable development involves some key principles such as: quality of life, fairness and correctness, care for our environment and respect for ecological constraints, recognising that there are "environmental limits". Our company is committed every day to respecting these principles, looking to the future and dedicating a lot of resources to innovation that allows us to use highly technical and performance materials that at the same time have less impact on the environment.
Quality of life
We create work clothes with highly technical natural and polymeric materials that improve the comfort and feeling of well-being of the wearer; a comfortable garment "makes you feel better". In creating our products we comply with the strictest quality regulations and every fabric, thread, button or zip is tested to be absolutely certain that it is suitable for contact with the skin and does not contain substances or colorants harmful to humans. Thanks to strict controls, our fabrics are certified OEKO-TEX Standard 100, a test and certification system that has requirements that go well beyond current national legislation and ensures the maximum safety of people who wear our clothes every day.
Fairness and honesty
We produce our fabrics and garments in Italy using skilled labour engaged under contracts which not only comply with current legislation but also with our moral responsibility and our respect for the individual. We abhor the use of child labour and the economic exploitation of people in need.
Care for our environment and respect for ecological constraints
We are certified by ISO9001 which is the standard for the management of the quality of business processes that are effective in improving operational efficiency. An efficient company is a company that can make better use of the resources at its disposal and therefore produce less waste. Looking to the future we also wanted to obtain ISO14001 certification which is the standard for environmental management that dictates the policies necessary to have better control over and saving of raw materials and energy used. This provides clarity in the management of our environmental impact so we can become more "green" and more respectful of the environment every year.
Since 2011 we have started organising ourselves so we can meet the criteria of the European GPP (Green Public Procurement) initiative. These criteria are aimed at helping public authorities ensure that textile products and services are conceived so they provide environmental improvements that contribute to European policy objectives on energy use, chemical management and resource efficiency. These objectives are designed to reduce the costs inherent to the life cycle of these resources, in other words, committing us to working closely with suppliers of raw materials who in turn must be certified and must respect the environmental criteria that we have already committed to respect. This is a commitment to using recyclable materials that must not be dispersed into the environment but which can be reused at the end of their life cycle.

Raw materials from eco-sustainable sources, eco-sustainable processes, energy saving, waste management and recycling all help us achieve a product of very high quality that lasts over time and gives a sense of well-being to the user, we believe in all this!
