Cadini’s Sustainability Plan: First Step
At Cadini, we are fully aware of how important it is to implement a solid Sustainability Plan.
As a first step in our sustainability journey, we committed to providing a range of sustainable fabrics of the highest quality. When animals and land do not suffer, but rather thrive from human interaction, the final result is undeniably higher in quality. For this reason, we source our fabrics from top Italian suppliers which made sustainability a pillar of their journey.
All together we strive for a more sustainable future, showcasing how sustainable fabrics bring undeniable pros and underline how conventional fabrics are a thing of the past.
But which are our suppliers and how are they sustainable?
LORO PIANA. Loro Piana sustainable offer lays on Pecora Nera. This fabric is obtained from New Zealand Merino wool naturally dark in colour. The result is a mélange brown to black yarn that does not require any additional dying, therefore is 100% organic. The company has also installed a wastewater treatment plant that has been in operation since 1987, while in 2012 has built Mongolia’s very first wastewater treatment plant.
VITALE BARBERIS CANONICO 1663. VBC offers some the highest quality wool fabrics in the world. It is certified Sustaina Wool, ISO 14001 and ISO 9001, among others. Moreover, their wool is mulesing free, they use no cruelty silk (Red Eri and Eri), and 100% of electric energy comes from renewable sources. The company provides transparency and traceability of their wool fabrics from sheep to final product. Recycling is another pillar of their sustainability commitment, using recycled bi-stretch (produced using pre-consumer recycled materials) and recycled membrane.
REDA. Reda is the first Italian textile company and one of the first worldwide to receive the B Corporation certification, the most advanced international standard designed to measure the economic, environmental and social impact of participating companies. The Merino wool fabrics offered by the company are certified Woolmark, Sustaina Wool, Responsible Wool Standard and ZQUE, among others. The company offers a high level of transparency and traceability, listing all their farms and their detailed specificities. Moreover, the Reda Active line offers performant fabrics in sustainable Merino wool that do not require dry cleaning, a washing method known to be an air pollutant.
We know we have a long way to go but the direction of our Sutainability Plan is clear and our commitment is strong.
