MARCHI & FILDI gamble on circular economy with ECOTEC® and broaden the range with Phoenix
A two-level evolution for Marchi & Fidi, who will attend Premiere Vision’s September edition with a strategic positioning and a broader offer, always striving for smart excellence.
Marchi & Fildi make a strategic choice and undergo an authentic evolution, aiming straight at the circular economy and therefore focusing solely on ECOTEC® with its portfolio of products transformed into excellence. ECOTEC® smart cotton by Marchi & Fildi is, in fact, the first Made in Italy material obtained through an exclusive, fully traceable and certified production process that transforms 100%-cotton yarn already-dyed textile cuts with remarkable efficiency in terms of water, energy and CO2 savings. As confirmed by the LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) study, these figures highlight up to 56.3% of CO2 emissions, 56.6% in the consumption of energy resources and 77.9% in water consumption along the whole production process. Such efficiency reaches back to raw materials, where savings are guaranteed thanks to a process of pure evaluation that allows the transformation of quality pre-consumer cuts into excellence, resulting in a yarn that contains up to 80% of the transformed material, a result with no equals in the textile world.
As a result of the union of two certified raw materials for a 100% GRS (Global Recycle Standard) yarn in line with the focus of ECOTEC® by Marchi & Fildi, the company exclusively presents the new PHOENIX yarn (50% ECOTEC®, 50% recycled polyester, NM1/50 GRS-certified) available in a wide choice of trendy colors that don’t need additional dyes, once again underlining the company’s smart-oriented vision.
An addition to ECOTEC®’s wide range which claims the TESSILE E SALUTE certification promoted by ITALY’S MINISTRY OF HEALTH together with others like Oeko-Tex 100, Certified Quality System Company ISO 9001:2015 and TF (Traceability and Fashion).
