It guarantees a natural effect with unparalleled quality and accuracy, requiring less manpower and less rejection rate when compared to manual scraping.Officina+39’s technical achievements are constantly at the service of the fashion industry to develop Trustainable projects. Officina+39 and Tejidos Royo joined forces to create a denim line that drastically reduces water consumption – this is ‘The Sixth Sense’, a project concretely inspired by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and specifically by its SDG6, calling to action to ensure access to water and sanitation for all, the company said in a media release.Italian sustainable chemical developer Officina+39 is currently showcasing its latest technologies at the ongoing Denim Première Vision in Milan at booth F35 and sharing its concrete contribution to a more Trustainable denim. Under the spotlight at the event, among multiple innovations, is Officina+39’s brand-new Novascraper Indigo. The 2-day event will end Officina+39 personally accepts the global challenge by contributing to the realisation of The Sixth Sense with its Aqualess Mission. Featuring three cutting-edge laundry products for one innovative process, Aqualess Mission combines the application of Remover BC, Aqualess Aged – a waterless compound to give denim abrasion effects – and Oz-one Powder – an advanced product to give garments a bleached yet eco-friendly treatment in a dry application, for a worn and distressed look. Compatible with conventional washing and treatment machinery, it allows for water consumption savings up to 75 per cent.Focused on driving sustainability in the textile industry, Tejidos Royo on its side pioneered the use of low-impact fibres and yarns as a raw material and the implementation of foam-dyeing technology with its Dry Indigo, the first-ever technology to foam-dye denim with zero water use and no water discharge.Officina+39’s CircularKromia is a colourful path for preloved garments. It has collaborated with Atelier Riforma, an innovative startup born in Turin (Italy) with a social vocation. The company’s goal is to reduce the environmental impact of the fashion industry, promoting its transition towards a model that is as circular as possible. Atelier Riforma manages the collection of discarded clothing and, through a network of upcycling professionals spread throughout Italy, gives them new life through sartorial creativity.Through the contribution of Officina+39’s Recycrom, it has been possible to obtain new pigment and dyestuff pulverising discarded garments and pieces usually difficult to recover through tailoring transformation alone. All garments have been supplied and selected by Atelier Riforma and came to a new life thanks to Officina+39’s innovative technologies: the collection made it possible not to generate any waste, no new raw materials were required from Planet Earth to create CircularKromia.Additionally, Officina+39, Lenzing and Meidea under the ‘Act Together’ motto in 2020 gave life to The Circle Book, an initiative demonstrating how it is possible to create designs and projects related to responsible circular fashion. A collective project gathering a total of ten companies with common goals focused on transparency and circularity in denim design, The Circle Book is now in its second edition that culminated in CULTURE.IN, a circular capsule collection transparently made from recycled and degradable materials.The synergy of Officina+39 with Lenzing and Meidea led to an exclusive event. In the evening of October 13, the recently inaugurated brand-new headquarters of Officina+39 in Biella opened its doors to welcome denim personalities, brands, designers and partners to show where Officina+39’s innovative technologies are created, to network and celebrate while preparing new steps towards the design of a more circular and Trustainable fashion Industry.
