The reputation of a textile firm is built not only upon the quality of its products and services, but also upon its commitment to socially responsible production choices that respect the environment and humanity.  Tessitura Attilio Imperiali is the prime example of a success story when it comes to merging all these elements, with products that starting from the beginning of the supply chain can contribute to realising sustainable fashion garments.

It is not by chance that the case history of Attilio Imperiali was chosen as the protagonist of the workshop “Fabrics and accessories without the use of dangerous chemical substances. (Also) this is sustainable fashion”, promoted by F-susy – the Fashion Sustainability System at the last edition of Lineapelle. The speech of Alessandra Imperiali, CEO of the textile brand, “From Detox to monitoring the supply chain. The sustainable pathway of Tessitura Attilio Imperiali”, confirmed the company’s total commitment to a sustainable textile and fashion supply chain, which started with their signing of the Greenpeace Detox protocol and went on to include the collaboration with Rete Clima®.

An advocate of Greenpeace Detox since 2014, Attilio Imperiali shares in the vision of eliminating all PFC and other chemical substances that are harmful to the environment and humankind from the fashion supply chain by 2020. In addition to eliminating these harmful elements from the textile production cycle, Attilio Imperiali also aims to encourage the companies and workshops it works with to adopt the same programme.

Always in 2014, Attilio Imperiali in collaboration with Rete Clima® undertook a path to calculate and compensate for the carbon dioxide emitted by the company’s activities. Instead of planting trees in a tropical forest or in distant countries, compensation is promoted through urban forestry, thus guaranteeing greater traceability in the territory in addition to representing a visible and tangible activity.

Thanks to these two operations, Attilio Imperiali is capable of creating a highly sustainable product, which also maintains a high quality standard and level of sophistication. A perfect example of this was the collection presented at Lineapelle and realised under the creative direction of Antonella Bertagnin, with her juxtaposition between classic and modern, and rigor and simplicity alternated with emotional and surprising elements.
