Continuing evolution that aims to smart growth with the launch of the super light SuperLampo T2
"Every day we produce 50 km of zippers and we do it not only by paying close attention to the functionality and aesthetics of our products, but also to the environmental impact of our industrial processes. All of our company and its production cycle are geared towards reducing waste and enhancing its subsequent use. A commitment that has not escaped to the Environment Edition that has proposed to participate in an important editorial project, the drafting of the book ” Neo Materials in the Circular Economy. Fashion ", explains Gaetano Lanfranchi, CEO Lanfranchi Spa. The book, edited in Italian and English, was prepared by Marco Ricchetti in co-operation with Blumine srl and with the sustainable fashion social network Sustainability-Lab and presented at the last edition of Pitti Uomo.
A text that highlights how business events engage with history, but above all with scientific discoveries, cultural changes and costumes, new feelings. Sustainability as an industrial choice in Lanfranchi's experience results in technology investment, especially regarding metal galvanizing and attention to raw materials used in processes. It is a natural evolution that has led to URAGO's plant ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001:2007 certifications, products have been certified Oeko-Tex for over 10 years and now meet the requirements of Class I of Standard 100, the most restrictive and related to children's products, and dyed organic cotton tapes through a GOTS certified process. An ingenious innovation search that led the company to incorporate a 3D printer into the company that allows the creation of unique prototypes in very short time to create exclusive and customized products.
The production of Lanfranchi zippers is totally integrated: weaving, sewing, dyeing, cutting, molding, galvanizing, assembly. Even the machines are made in Italy, with the guarantee of compliance with all Italian and European regulations related to environmental conservation, work safety and respect for workers themselves.
For the A/W 2018-2019 collection, Lanfranchi Spa premieres at MilanoUnica, the new Superlampo T2 zip that pushes miniaturization, reducing a small-sized object without compromising its functionality. Following the dominant paradigm of contemporary age, the technological limits have been challenged: T2, the size and lightness of this new zipper make it perfect for silk or light fabrics, shirts and fine knitwear, inner pockets and small leather goods.
Along with Milano Unica, Lanfranchi has created an exclusive partnership with ROICA™ Premium Stretch Fibre and the precious CUPRO, unique materials by Asahi Kasei. The collaboration created a unique lace clutch bag by Iluna Group, which contains ROICA™ Eco Smart, the only GRS certified stretch yarn, coupled with a precious fabric in CUPRO by Gianni Crespi for a super-soft touch inside. Lanfranchi has chosen their zip with NewLife™ tape for this exclusive gift. Newlife™ is the result of the High Tech Conversion Model that transforms only post-consumer plastic bottles whose origin is fully traceable in a high-tech, high-quality polymer through a mechanical, non-chemical process. Everything Made in Italy. Newlife ™ uses -94% water, -60% energy consumption, -32% carbon dioxide emissions as stated by ICEA's LCA study, and has GRS and Oeko-Tex certifications. An exclusive gift that combines a sophisticated aesthetic, quality premium materials and values such as innovation and accountability.
