In a Circular Economy the aim is to create less waste by making the most out of every possible material and fabric involved in the production process. In our case, recovered scraps of camelhair and silk faux fur are Upcyled from the production of coats in order to create a warm insulation.
This padding is capable of maintaining equal insulating properties as virgin fibers, without requiring additional consumption.
Luxepad Camel Silk Blend Edition is created in three step:
- firstly, recovered materials are gathered and sorted in Northern Italy
- secondly, they are transformed through a mechanic process into very fine fibre
- lastly, the fibres are blended with recycled polyester, creating a high performing insulating mix, ready to be processed to create the padding.
This process, whose patent was filed, allowed us to create a highly resilient product, which features extraordinary tensile and strength qualities and with consistent insulating capacity.
Made through a process that is less impactful in terms of energy consumption, waste production, water usage, CO2 emissions, Luxepad Camel Silk Blend Edition is a new frontier for ecologically-responsible fashion, giving new purpose to otherwise discarded precious materials.
