SUSTAINABILITY


BE GENTLE WITH THE PLANET

Our constant commitment to sustainability is key to our work giving us inspiration.
The raw materials we use are carefully selected from the best Italian manufacturers of top-quality natural textiles, which are traceable and safe, recyclable and biodegradable. 
Production cycles respect man and the environment conforming to the provisions in force. 
Our products are ORGANIC. In line with our principles, the search for innovative materials plays a key role in our work: we use natural fabrics (flax, nettle, hemp and others) that are traceable, safe, eco-friendly, biodegradable, pesticide- and chemical-free in both the growing and production stage.

Natural fibers respect the environment and guarantee the combination of well-being, economy and ethics that characterize the entire production chain. Natural fabrics are produced using yarns from fibers existing in nature, through mechanical processes without undergoing chemical processes that modify their structure.

FLAX:
The flax we use is grown in Normandy and spun in Italy by Linificio Nazionale, which pro-duces high-quality products certified according to painstaking European-manufacturing controls.

The prestigious “Master of linen” stamp guarantees 100% traceability of European-made flax and the professional skills of the parties involved.

/NO PESTICIDES/
/REGENERATES THE SOIL SOILS/
/PRODUCES OXIGEN/
/REPELS INSECTS NATURALLY/
/NO POLLUTION OF SOIL AND WATER/
/ZERO IRRIOGATION/
/ZERO WASTE/
/CARBON SINK/

Properties:
The garment, made with flax fibres (100% Euro-pean ), improves children’s skin health. It is a heat regulator, anti-stress, non allergic, excellent dye affinity, absorbent and curative material.

NETTLE:

Wild-growing, giant Himalayan stinging nettle is a perfectly sustainable rhizome, with shoots annually reaching over three meters in height. Harvesting the vertical stalks clears out one year’s growth, making room for new leafy and healthy shoots in the next year to better absorb CO2. 
It also promotes root growth for soil stabilization in landslide prone mountains.

Climate in the Himalayas affects the entire world. Forestry professionals believe the collection of raw material – the removal of dead stalks – could very well have a net positive impact on this mountain environment.

ETHICAL MISSION:
Harvesting the plant also has an ethical mission,
close to Nepali families: it helps women earn money to meet the basic needs of the family.

/ABSORB CO2/
/SOIL STABILIZATION/

Properties: 
The Himalayan Nettle fiber is HYPOALLERGENIC and THERMOREGULATING, extremely resistant and its length makes it shiny like silk and therefore a precious and extremely refined fiber.
As a natural fiber it is completely biodegradable.

HEMP:

Hemp plantations do not need aggressive treatments with pesticides, herbicides or other chemicals. The plant can grow up to 4 meters, has robust roots that induce oxygenation of the soil and is capable of reclaiming polluted soils and enriching them (increasing their productivity) thanks to a strong supply of nitrogen. Hemp is also one of the most efficient plants in converting carbon dioxide into oxygen.

/NO PESTICIDES OR HERBICIDES/
/ENRICHING SOILS/
/CONVERT CARBON DIOXIDE INTO OXIGEN/

Properties: 
The fabrics obtained from the hemp plant are also equipped with other very interesting properties: they reflect ultraviolet rays, shield from electrostatic fields, do not conduct electricity, do not irritate the skin because they are hypoallergenic and keep bacteria away from the surface of our body, because they are antiseptics.

EUCALYPTUS:

Eucalyptus grows very quickly and is grown on long lasting forest plantations without the need for artificial irrigation or genetic manipulation. Unlike traditional cotton, therefore, it is produced without the use of water and pesticides.
From eucalyptus wood comes this fabric, whose production is considered revolutionary: ecological and economic and paves the way for the concept of circular economy within the textile industry.

/SUSTAINABLE AND CERTIFIED FORESTRY/
/NO PESTICIDES/
/ZERO IRRIOGATION/ /BIODEGRADABLE/
/MINIMIZED ENERGY/
/ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION/
/CONSERVATION OF RESOURCES/

Properties: 
The wicking abilities of Eucalyptus materials keep the skin dry and the smooth fiber surface feels soft and supple against the skin. This makes this fabric great for sensitive skin. Eucalyptus is said to be anti-bacterial because of its moisture management property.

This fabric has greater moisture absorption than cotton and natural breathability. This makes Eucalyptus fabric a perfect choice for people with sweating issues, or for people with sensitive skin aggravated by moisture.

______________________________

Each production step fully complies with the strictest environmental standards, from growing up to spinning: the eco-friendly processes reduce the impact on the planet while providing eco-friendly and organic items.

Weaving is entrusted to an Italian firm, an historical company which we are proud to call partner, and that has always valued man and the environment as the core of its business.

The Bianca&Noè project is designed to minimize environmental impact. The packaging is completely recyclable and biodegradable as well, from the boxes to the cards and tags of each product. 

The culture of aware fashion starts right from children.
