The textile and clothing industry is launching a plethora of initiatives to find ways to transform current practices. In doing so, led by a necessary and strongly-felt change of mindset, many companies have rediscovered their creative soul. One that enhances the generative capacity to turn constraints into opportunities for emancipation. This is how the hyper-industrial epoch (in the words of philosopher Bernard Stiegler) is using a sustainable approach to heal itself.
This is also true for Eurojersey, founded in 1960 and ever since a leader in warp-knit fabrics patented with the trademark Sensitive Fabrics. The company stands out among textile businesses in having chosen to keep its entire production process in Italy: from weaving to dyeing through finishing and printing – everything is done at the company’s sole large-scale production plant at Caronno Pertusella.
In addition to this localised approach, which enables precise territorial policies, in coordination with a commitment to process, environmental, social and economic sustainability, in 2007 the company launched its ambitious SensitivEcosystem project, an inclusive and integrated programme that is today outlined in its clear and transparent Footprint Report.
As Eurojersey Spa CEO Andrea Crespi points out, “the results achieved by the SensitivEcosystem programme and set out in our Footprint Report are an invitation and a stimulus for our stakeholders to maintain open dialogue on these topics to create collective value”.
Value is obviously also to be found in the S/S 2023 collection, which features fabrics that are able to simplify lifestyles and increase the wearer’s comfort.
Easy to machine wash, they are fast-drying and do not need ironing. From #vibrantvacation to #craftcore, through #opticgraphics, #neoprimitive and #unrealjungle, the various themes in the collection explore all the possibilities of breathable fabrics ideal for creating outfits fit for any occasion – in the city, travelling or on vacation – whilst retaining a concept of contemporary elegance.
The SensitivEcoSystem approach is the ideal combination for developing a sustainability strategy that involves the entire supply chain. The principle of materiality that guided the company in drafting its Footprint Report presents all the information required to understand the impact of company activities on the sustainability areas that most affect its ability to create value over time. In the area of sustainable governance, we find an analysis of the business’s ethics and integrity and its responsible procurement – the ticket to sustainable research and development. When it comes to environmental criteria, we find an analysis of the circular economy, traceability and management of materials, energy consumption and emissions, and management of waste and water resources. The key subject of social sustainability covers all the analysis on health, safety and investment in employees.
In the knowledge that the path towards sustainability involves the need to track and measure its footprint, the SensitivEcoSystem project, designed as a set of good practices and technologies for reducing the environmental impact of company processes, has evolved into an
