The respect for environment is for Etique a cornerstone of our company philosophy. With this goal in mind, we chose to add to our collection an increasing number of sustainable articles plain and jacquard, creating fabrics that, while respecting the environment, can maintain our trademark's simple elegance.
We care about the environment, therefore we have decided to introduce fabrics made with the Newlife® yarn, obtained by mechanical process, from the PET bottles. This process guarantees itself a low environmental impact without compromizing the technical performances of the fabric.
Newlife® is not a certification. It is the guarantee that the fabric made by recycled pet has been fully produced in Italy by a mechanical process that, by heating, eliminates the chemical substances during the spinning process.
Moreover, Newlife® is a quality guarantee because it is one of the best recycled PET actually available in the market.
