NCOT2404 Cotton

Organic cotton yarn, entirely obtained from organic cultivation in compliance with the latest regulations. It finds use in the manufacture of clothing and denim.

RGLA2403 Glass

Material made of 100% post-industrial and post-consumer recycled glass rejects from industrial production and bottle glass Through processes of crushing and classification, the scrap flat glass is transformed into glass granulates. Using a mixing process the glass granulates are shaped into panels and then sintered. Subsequently the sintered panels are placed into cooling hoods and cooled under controlled conditions.

Yarn made of 100% post-consumer recycled PET. It is high tenacity twisted, continuous filament with controlled elongation yarn. It is ideal for sewing denim, accessories, footwear and leather goods.

NWOO2399 Wood

Material made from 100% northern spruce and pine fluff pulp, sourced from sustainably managed forests. It is a soft absorbent material that is well suited for application in hygiene products such as baby diapers but is equally as suited for use in different air-laid nonwovens such as napkins, food pads and products used in the medical sector. It is available in two versions: bleached and unbleached. The bleached version uses elemental chlorine-free (ECF) and total chlorine-free (TCF) technologies, and meet the safety regulations for the food and hygiene industries. The unbleached version uses oxygen to remove the lignin. As a result, this fluff pulp is of a warm natural beige colour and has a roughly 30% lower carbon footprint in comparison to traditional fluff pulp, but its performance isn’t altered.

RWOO2398 Wood

Foam material made of up to 98% recycled wood fiber from sustainably managed forests. It is an expanded foam designed to replace polyurethane (PU) foams and polystyrene (EPS) soft yet resilient material with a memory foam like behavior and it fits various types of conversion methods like sawing, die-cutting and thermoforming. It is resilient and has great damping and insulation capacity, it is suitable for thermal packaging, for example in online grocery sales and medicine shipments The foam is recyclable in the paper and cardboard stream.

RPLA2397 Plastic

Yarn made of 100% recycled polyester from post-consumer packaging materials. It is recycled polyester continuous filament coated with spun polyester. It is characterised by excellent sewability and strength, combined with a natural appearance. It is used in the manufacture of clothing.

NOTH2396 Others

Biomaterial made by growing fermented bacterial nanocellulose and plants. Strands of natural fibers interlock to form textiles and composites with advanced performance and soft handfeel It is 100% plant-based that contains no plastics and petrochemicals, and is completely biodegradable. Produced in weeks rather than months or years, finds use as an alternative to animal leather, polyurethane, latex, vinyl and epoxy, in the production of fashion accessories or clothing.


Fabric made of 65% new wool worsted and 23% recycled wool. One of the coloured yarns are made of virgin wool, while the other is recycled wool dyed in darker tones. This approach ensures the textile’s dynamic colour palette, which is used in the manufacture of upholstery.

BPL2394 Bioplastics

Bio-plastic made of polylactic acid (PLA) obtained from plants like corn, cassava, sugar cane or beets. Thei are used to capture and sequester CO2 transforming it into long-chain sugar molecules. The resulting granules are used to replace traditional plastics for extrusion & thermoforming, for injection molding, for films & cards, for fibers & nonwovens, for foam and for 3D printing.

RBPLFRU2393 Fruits

Bio-based filament made of PLA with additives of about 20% of tomato peels from Sicily. It is marketed as a reel and can be used as a 3D print filament.

RPAPPLA2392 Paper, Plastic

Material consisting of a recycled cardboard core from sustainably managed forests and 100% recycled PMMA surface skins. The regeneration process allows to recover from waste of the surface panels, high quality raw material. It is mainly used for indoor applications.

RPLA2391 Plastic

Material made of 100% post-consumer recycled PET, obtained from soap and detergent bottles discarded by Autogrill. The bottles are washed, reduced to flakes and then transformed into panels using only heat and pressure. It is used in the realization of partition panels and surfaces.

RPLA2390 Plastic

Fabric made of 100% post-consumer recycled polyester, characterized by a particularly delicate and soft texture. Suitable for contract and private use, it is used in the realization of upholstery.

RFRU2389 Fruits

Material made through the use of waste from the real pineapple peel. It is a by-product that originates from agro-food industry, especially in the producing and processing countries. The pineapple peel, through a patental industrial production process, acquires the processing characteristics of a traditional fabric or leather while maintaining the initial aesthetic appearance. It finds application in the fashion and design sector.

RBUI2382 Inerts

Material composed of 85% recycled granite and 15% biocement. The calcium carbonate biocement consists of inorganic crystals formed by the bacteria at ambient temperatures. The bacteria typically create cemented materials over hundreds or thousands of years, but the process enables them to do the same work in a matter of days. Recycled aggregates are cleaned and mixed with bacteria and nutrients, before being pressed into prefabricated moulds. The tiles are fed with a patented nutrient mixture of cement-forming components. The resulting precast product has a low carbon footprint and exceed the physical properties of standard materials for compressive strength, absorption, freeze-thaw, adhesion, and dimensional tolerance. Available in brushed, honed and polished finishes, it is perfect for exterior and interior, vertical and horizontal use in commercial, institutional, and residential building projects.
