Talking about sustainability
with Besani

The green work in progress

Besani makes high quality knit fabrics using premium natural fibres, such as yarn-dyed and mercerized Filo di Scozia cotton. In addition to company certifications such as Oeko-Tex STeP and Ethic-Et by Tessile e Salute Association, it has also obtained the product certifications Oeko-Tex Standard 100, GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) and GRS (Global Recycle Standard).

It joined the Greenpeace Detox campaign in September 2014 to eliminate harmful chemicals from its in-house processes and its supply chain. The project was completed in 2019 with the participation of all suppliers. It has worked with Milan Polytechnic, Blumine and other companies on the F-Susy project for safer textile chemicals. The company has also implemented full traceability by inserting a QR code into its hang tags, thanks to which clients can verify where the cotton was sourced, and where the fabric was spun, dyed, mercerized, manufactured and finished. 

In 2020, in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, Besani joined the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI), the association aiming to improve the standard of living of cotton growers whilst improving the environment by providing education on water management and pesticide use. 

In the social and ethical field, in 2021 it partnered with Humana People to People Italia and Occhio del Riciclone Coop. Sociale Onlus to begin reusing excess textiles.
