Its performance is very similar to virgin nylon and can be used in combination with other textile fibres. After being harvested, the fishing nets are processed into granules and then into yarn, which is either woven into fabrics or knitted into a garment.

RBUI2545 Inerts

Material made from 90% recycled ceramic waste, consisting of a mixture of clay recovered from aggregate waste. The glazes are made with recycled biomass and fly ashes, and construction waste. It is used as a permeable tile in outdoor paving.

NFLA2544 Flax

Material made of a blend of 75% flax fibers and 25% viscose fibres, joined with petals of daisies, roses, cornflowers, heather, lavender, sunflowers and hay. The flower petals come from selected soils that are cultivated to maintain the biodiversity, following the seasonality of crops and the rules of climate neutral production. Treated at high temperatures, the flowers retain their fragrance and lose their allergen. It is used in the manufacture of cladding panels.

ROTHTEX2543 Others, Textile waste

Material made from recycled denim textile waste from second-hand clothing markets and the fashion industry, combined with a plant-based recycled resin. The resin is obtained from by-products of the agricultural sector, which cannot be reused in the food industry. The denim used, which is characterised by the presence of elastane, cannot be spun again. It is used in the production of objects and components.

RWOO2542 Wood

Foam material made of recycled wood from the secondary streams of the mechanical forestry industry, 100% recyclable and free of fossil-based substances. Due to the intrinsic characteristics of the shafts and the presence of air pockets within the material, it is used as an alternative to rock wool and glass wool for the construction of insulation pads in the building industry.

RPLA2541 Plastic

Material consisting of 84% post-consumer recycled polyester fibres from bottles, characterised by a suede-like appearance. Recycled PET flakes are processed into a polyester fabric. Characterised by a rough surface and a soft feel, it is used in the manufacture of displays and cases.

RWOLPLA2540 Wool, Plastic

Material made from the pre-consumer recycling of waste from the processing of fine wool fabrics and yarns. The collected and sorted waste is mechanically processed into a wool fibre and blended with recycled polyester to guarantee the same quality performance. The fibre is used as breathable and temperature-regulating padding in the manufacture of clothing.

RNOTHPAPPAP2539 Others, Paper

Thermoformed, plastic-free pulp material consisting of 20% sugar cane waste, 40% virgin pulp and 40% recycled cellulose fibres. Virgin fibres are certified and come from responsibly managed forests, recycled cellulose comes from post-consumer waste, collected mainly from corrugated cardboard, and sugar cane waste comes from post-industrial waste from agricultural residues not intended for food consumption. Characterised by a havana colouring, it is used as an alternative to traditional plastic-derived packaging materials.

NCOR2538 Cork

Composite material made of natural cork granulate from Portuguese productio and cool concrete. It is developed for interior design and architecture. It is used as a panel with a similar appearance to terrazzo but with 40% more lightness.

BPL2537 Bioplastics

Material obtained by the polycondensation of 1,6-hexamethylenediamine (HMDA) and sebacic acid derived from the seeds of the castor plant, from agricultural raw materials not competing with food chains. Solution-dyed, it is used in the manufacture of clothing, sports, furniture and automotive products.

NWOO2536 Wood

Textile fibre consisting of undried cellulose pulp obtained from pine and spruce wood from certified, sustainably managed Finnish forests. The wood shavings are processed into fibre flakes and later into yarns and fabrics. It is used as a textile material in the manufacture of clothing and upholstery.

NCOR2535 Cork

Material made of 100% natural expanded cork agglomerate, 100% natural, obtained exclusively from cork from branches. The production process consists of injecting water vapour through pellets that will expand and agglomerate with the cork resin itself The surfaces are processed through computational algorithms based on generative design, inspired by biology, mathematics and geometry, resulting in 3D tiles with excellent thermal, acoustic and vibration insulation.

RCER2534 Cereals

Material made from compressed grain and rice straw, a natural and annually renewable by-product of agricultural waste that would otherwise be incinerated after harvest. The manufacturing process combines heat and pressure to form a solid panel core. A natural polymer in the straw fibre is extracted during this process and acts as a natural binding agent. Finally coated with recycled kraft paper, it is used as an energy-efficient and sustainable wall and ceiling panel.

RNOTHPAP2533 Others, Paper

Material made of thermoformed, plastic-free pulp consisting of 40% sugar cane waste and 60% virgin pulp. Virgin fibres are certified and come from responsibly managed forests, while sugar cane waste comes from the post-industrial waste of agricultural residues not intended for food consumption. The coloured version contains water-based dyes. Recyclable within the paper recycling process, it is used as an alternative to traditional plastic-derived packaging materials.

RCOT2532 Cotton

Regenerated cotton fibre, produced by a process of fraying rags. It is a material free of dust and metal particles and is characterised by homogeneous colours. It is used in various industrial sectors such as textiles, automotive, construction and home furnishings.

Material composed of a mixture using more than 90% recycled mineral aggregates, derived from production waste from large quarries. It is combined with a wooden backing of MDF or plywood from sustainably managed forests. Designed for application in indoor contexts, it is used in the construction of counter walls and false ceilings without any structural function, and for the cladding of furnishing elements.

RCOTTEX2529 Cotton, Textile waste

Material obtained through a new technology that converts textile waste products into new engineered fibres. Cotton-rich used fabrics from manufacturing process waste and discarded fashion items are recovered by textile recyclers, brands and retailers. The textile waste is then shredded, liquified, purified, and transformed into new fiber, which looks and performs the same as virgin fiber. The regenerated fibre can be recycled again and again and is used in the manufacture of clothing and fashion accessories.

BPL2528 Bioplastics

Bio-plastic made of 25% to 100% bio-based content, made from waste streams of food production, mainly sugars and vegetable oils.
