Kinetech® Lab, the sport lab by Tessitura Taiana Virgilio, chooses ISPO Munich to present its new woven quad-stretch fabric empowered by graphene

Kinetech®, the sport Lab by Tessitura Taiana Virgilio, presents its new collection of fabrics dedicated to the competitive sports world and to extreme performances at ISPO Munich (February 3rd – 6th, 2019). Kinetech®, as part of the most important European event in the sector, proves once again to be one of the most advanced and innovative outposts at the service of those brands and fashion houses that really mean business when it comes to trusting a partner with over 85 years of history, all the while projecting itself totally into the future and into research. Among what's new and unmissable in innovation, special mention certainly goes to the flagship product of the collection, that is a Woven jacquard fabric with a graphene polyurethane membrane which guarantees exceptional performance as well as thermal comfort. Thanks to the bi-elastic fabric of the RELYFE project, the product is therefore considered eco-friendly and responsible, and in line with R.R.R. company policy.


What is RELYFE?

Taiana fully believes that eco-sustainability is an essential element for doing business in an ethical and conscious way, not only for today but for years to come.

Beyond it being an important ethical/social commitment, this is also a competitiveness factor today which will be in effect for years to come.

This is why TAIANA has created an integrated eco-sustainability process called R.R.R. (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) which bases its foundation on ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 9001:2015 standards, and sees environmental management as the predominant element of each phase of its production cycle with a Holistic approach.

This means that issues like these are focused on at every stage of the production process, thereby raising awareness on them among employees while going downstream and upstream through cooperation with Suppliers and Customers, thus subjects as such become an element of shared culture.

TAIANA has always sought for the development of sustainable fabrics in order to reach the challenging goal of a more eco-friendly future, and to fulfill their strong commitment to the environment, all the while moving away from marketing gimmicks.

The new project by TAIANA called RELYFE is the result of this philosophy and is truly a further step towards the circular economy.

RELYFE is not only a range of new generation fabrics, it is also a pioneering project that paves the way for a revolutionary idea for the recycling of a product of excellence.

In short, RELYFE recounts the story of an Italian excellence that has been operating out of respect for the environment since 1933. It tells the story of a company which sprung up in one of the most beautiful areas in the world, which is well aware of being eco-friendly. It is a story that dates back to an ancient passion for the environment which the Lake Como region has always been renowned for.
