RadiciGroup: sustainable wearables

The first Oroblù-branded tights made in Italy from recycled plastic bottles are the result of a collaboration between the manufacturer of synthetic fibers and yarns, RadiciGroup, Gandino/Italy, and CSP International Fashion Group SpA, Ceresara/Italy.
The 2 companies, both of which are innovation and sustainability-oriented, decided to combine their know-how to create a high-performance, eco-friendly product. “Oroblù Save the Oceans” are black, 50-denier tights made of Repetable, a new polyester yarn derived from post-consumer recycled PET bottles. This process reduces CO2 emissions, as well as the consumption of water and energy.
Repetable yarn uses no virgin material and is colored by solution-dyeing, a method that saves water and electricity during production.
