Everybody talks about sustainability.
We’re here to help you understand more about it.

Attention to the environment is a daily commitment for us, which translates into research and design of production processes with reduced impact on the environment and on people.

We pay the highest attention in the selection of raw materials, the use of recycled materials, the reduction of environmental impact and the safety of our teams. These are the eight international certifications that demonstrate our willingness and commitment.

Better Cotton Initiative

It is the world’s largest program for the sustainability of cotton production, aimed at reducing environmental stress and promoting the well-being of farming communities.

chemical management 4sustainability

The international protocol for the management of raw materials and the reduction of chemicals in production processes.

Global Recycled Standard

It certifies products made from recycled materials and production activities. It enhances the value of products made from recycled materials, respecting environmental and social principles extended to all stages of the production chain.


GOTS is acknowledged as the most important standard for the sustainable production of garments and textiles made from natural fibres from organic farming, such as organic cotton or organic wool.


The OCS requires the delivery of an environmental declaration that validates the content of organically grown natural fibres in textile products and ensures traceability throughout the production chain of raw materials, intermediate products and finished products.


With this standard, Textile Exchange intends to enhance the use of recycled materials to promote a sustainable production and consumption model that aims to reduce the consumption of resources (virgin raw materials, water and energy).


The goals of the RWS are to provide the industry with a tool to identify the farmers’ best practices, ensuring that wool comes from farms that have an innovative approach in managing their land, practicing holistic animal welfare and respecting the Five Freedoms of animal welfare.

European Flax

The EUROPEAN FLAX® paper, signed by all flax producers, guarantees local agriculture that respects the environment and is committed to: zero irrigation, zero GMOs and zero waste. The extraction of the fibres is 100% mechanical, which means that no chemicals are used in the process.

But Why?!

We firmly believe that without a healthy planet and without the dignity of the people who live on it, there is no possibility for the future, nor for development. That is why our commitment does not end with achieving certifications.


And How?!?

We have developed a path of integration between sustainability strategies and business needs, implementing a series of concrete actions and reliable projects.


The people who make our fabrics are at the very centre of our supply chain. We strive to ensure that every member of the team has the opportunity to be trained and to grow professionally. In a healthy and safe environment.


Clean Energy

We learned that using renewable energy is only a matter of will. We have succeeded in doing so in all our facilities: offices, finishing, warping and weaving are now 100% powered by clean energy, 30% of which is self-produced.

Clean Energy

Energy efficiency

We keep looking for new ways to improve water and energy savings. In finishing and dyeing we have implemented sophisticated sensors and control devices, which enable us to save around 30 million litres of water per year.

Energy efficiency

Chemical management

Thanks to rigorous management, testing and analysis methodologies, the products we use are more and more safe for the environment, for those who process our products and for those who use them. Since 2018, we have implemented the chemical management protocol (ZDHC compliant) 4Sustainability.

Chemical management

Thermal saving

Making the most out of resources is essential to reducing our impact. We are committed to optimizing the use of the thermal energy we produce by investing in machines that recover heat, enabling us to produce more while consuming less.

Thermal saving

Water conservation

We have acted on production methods to achieve water savings of around 8%. In 2020, we invested in the development of state-of-the-art technology to reduce water consumption in the dying process.

Water conservation


Energy saving

690 metric tons reduction of CO2 emissions which corresponds to:

CO2 Emissions from 79,6 homes’ energy use for one year.
Greenhouse gas emissions from 1,712,335 miles driven by an average passenger vehicle.
Greenhouse gas emissions avoided by 33,5 garbage trucks of waste recycled instead of landfilled.

Water saving

15.447 mc  hot water saved which corresponds to:

150.000 average hot showers.
217.000 washing machine cycles.
Water consumed by a family of 4 people over 40 years.

Gas saving

42 metric tons of reduction of CO2 emission which corresponds to:

Greenhouse gas emissions avoided by 1,788 trash bags of waste recycled instead of landfilled.
Greenhouse gas emissions from 104,290 miles driven by an average passenger vehicle.
CO2 Emissions from 5,360,037 number of smartphones charged.

Cangioli Impact Initiatives.

We are committed to sustainability in every possible way.
In addition to the strict protocols that enable us to achieve our 8 certifications, we are at the forefront of several sustainability projects.

ZDHC - Roadmap to zero

Our path to zero impact chemicals. For a cleaner planet. For a better future.
