Rifra and the 100% natural ribbonsEco Rifra, the sustainable collection proposed by Rifra Nastri, is a range of 100% natural products
In the last few years environmental topics have been converting into critical points for the success of companies. A phenomenon that forces manufacturers to adjust to international standards on health and environmental respect. Rifra Nastri – an established company with over thirty years of experience in the manufacturing of elastic and rigid ribbons in the footwear, clothing, leather goods and industry sectors – has long been aware of it and, therefore, it has launched the Eco Rifra line.
Eco Rifra is a range of 100% sustainable products, made with natural fibres and natural rubber latex through a manufacturing process that uses water without adding any chemicals.
“All the approximately 15 items of the line are OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified – underlines Roberto Riva, owner of Rifra. The project, which started 4 years ago, meets a specific need of the market, above all clothing, which wants sustainable products. Of course, it is still a niche within the entire production, but it is a growing niche”.
Rifra shows to deeply interpret the “environmental sustainability” theme, which entails an effective system for the monitoring of the value chain and the global production system, knowing that the correct usage of the natural capital offers the companies new opportunities for the creation of products and services aimed at eliminating any kind of waste, associated with the application of ‘eco-friendly’ materials and technologies. And that this sustainable added value can be used as a great competitive weapon.
