The Renewed Cashmere
The renewed cashmere is obtained by regenerating the fiber.
This allows to give new life to the precious fibers in a virtuous circle without end. The processing follows the principles of the circular economy, born and developed in Prato for about 100 years.
A circular world
The renewed cashmere is made with post-consumer yarns intended for disposal that are recovered and carefully divided by color, creating new shades and minimizing dyeing processes.
The selected material is frayed until you get a mix of small threads and pieces of cashmere that create the desired color.
The carding reduces everything to a kind of soft felt that is then spun, giving rise to the real renewed thread. The result does not give up the elegance and timeless craftsmanship of Malo garments.
The yarn is GRS certified. The Global Recycle Standard is promoted by Textile Exchange, one of the most important international non-profit organizations for responsible and sustainable development in the textile sector. The standard recognizes the importance of recycling for the growth of a sustainable production and consumption model, with the aim of promoting the reduction of resource consumption (virgin raw materials, water and energy) and increase the quality of recycled products.
The saving of primary resources compared to a garment in cashmere not renewed is evident if you look at the numbers: - 90% of water, - 80% of electricity and - 95% of CO2 emitted.
Wash and care
Malo garments made of renewed cashmere are elegant and comfortable made to last over time, their care is essential for the fiber to keep up with the passing of years.
The most appreciated characteristics of the yarn are the remarkable resistance to use and time, which indeed increases its softness.
