Italian textile company, Centro Seta, introduced its first collection of sustainable silk fabrics for Autumn/Winter 2015-2016. The collection, called Bacx, was developed through extensive technological research to ensure high quality silk fabrics were also sustainable and responsible, and the new range offers complete transparency across all production processes.
Roberto Bacci of Centro Seta said, “The transparent traceability of Bacx begins at the source – the raw materials – and crosses all the production process all the way to the finished product. Everything is Made in Italy with the character, appeal and style that distinguishes Italian culture and Centro Seta’s quest for beauty with style.”
Centro Seta’s new eco-friendly silks are offered in two ranges, GreenFiber and Newlife. The GreenFiber range fabrics are created using a new silk yarn derived from recycled production wastes. The Newlife range of high-tech, eco-silk fabrics combines traditional silk with Newlife threads, which are made from recycled bottles. The bottles are transformed into a polymer and then worked into a thread through a mechanical process.
The Bacx collection is certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and is available in a wide variety of colors.
“Centro Seta’s 30 year history and the feedback of our satisfied clients from around the world are the best testimony of our investments in quality, product innovation, creativity and customer service. Innovating today means being able to do so responsibly without giving up anything. In fact, the key word here is ‘integration,’” Bacci added.
