Apparel interlinings manufacturer Chargeurs PCC has introduced the Zero-Water Rainbow Collection of sustainable knitted interlinings.
The collection of ultralight inner components is available in 15 colors, in addition to white, natural and off-white, all dyed through a proprietary waterless process that minimizes environmental impact. The Zero-Water Rainbow Collection offers the lightest interlinings for designers and luxury brands that employ luxurious, lightweight fabrics.
Delicate and sheer items require silky, soft interlinings that provide flexible structure, durability and adhesion, while remaining nearly invisible, Charguers noted. The collection is available in a large range of sustainable colors to ensure designers’ creations drape perfectly and wear well, with no perceptible difference in the color of materials used to construct different layers of garments.
“We’ve leveraged our expertise to create a revolutionary dyeing process that uses absolutely no water as part of our commitment to sustainability through innovation,” said Gianluca Tanzi, CEO of Chargeurs Textile. “The Zero-Water Rainbow Collection of sustainable interlinings offer the flexibility and improved adhesion the world’s top couturiers demand in a wide range of colors to match nearly any fabric.”
The company said the traditional dyeing process is one of the most water-intensive and polluting parts of fashion production. To address this issue, Chargeurs PCC designed and engineered a proprietary waterless dyeing process that involves dyeing the adhesive material used in interlinings rather than the fabric itself.
The Zero-Water Rainbow Collection is available in small order quantities with fast delivery, eliminating overproduction and the need for fashion brands to purchase more material than they actually need just to meet minimum order requirements.
The Zero-Water Rainbow Collection is manufactured at Chargeurs’ century-old, fully integrated Lainière de Picardie factory outside Paris, under the supervision of the company’s textile and chemical experts.
Chargeurs PCC provides end-to-end solutions for fashion apparel brands by designing and manufacturing interlining, a technical fabric used to help garments retain their shape and structure. Its parent company, Chargeurs, is based in France and employs more than 2,500 people across five continents to serve its clients in more than 90 countries.
