‘Future in the origins’: 120 years of history are the foundations and the springboard on which to build the future. With this awareness, Tollegno 1900 celebrates an important birthday, making it the beginning of a new phase of its journey centred on tradition, innovation, sustainability, and projected toward new challenges. The A/W 2021/22 collection is among these. The ‘Luxury’, ‘Classic’, and ‘Performance’ collections give way to a new organization and presentation of the yarns grouped in 9 family cards representing as many universes focused on Merino Wool. With ‘Collection Box’, this is the name of the collection, the cards, representative of the world that they interpret already from the name of the families – ‘The Harmony and Free’, ‘The Greens’, ‘Just Felted’, ‘The 4.0 Area’, ‘The Ultra Wool’, ‘The Bulky Wool’, ‘So Comfy’, ‘The Fancy’, and ‘The Blends’ – have been grouped together in a sustainable box made of entirely recycled cardboard. Tollegno 1900 thus confirms to be eco-friendly not only by vocation, but also by the coherence of its image. ‘We focused on a new way of presenting our products that, in addition to highlighting their individual value, would contextualize them within a project of a wider scope. Each yarn is part of a cosmos defined by characteristic features which in turn are an expression of the principles in which the company believes’, Tollegno 1900 explained.
Finally, completing the ‘Collection Box’ is ‘GZ! – Green Zone’, a sustainability project that entrusts to non-toxic products the dyeing of the Tollegno 1900 yarns, certified to be naturally habitat-friendly and subjected to processes that preserve the ecosystem.
‘All our items in 100% Wool or natural blends also certified RWS or Nativa Precious fiber,’ Tollegno 1900 explained, ‘can be dyed on request following the GZ! – Green Zone formula, which, in natural dyeing, uses dyes of vegetable or mineral origin. It is important to underline that, due to the particular sensitivity to the different characteristics of the dye itself and of the components of the water and the material, the dye bath could have different characteristics, shades, and solidity values.’ The ‘colour’ chapter, in addition to GZ! – Green Zone, also includes a renewed ‘Harmony colours’ chart made up of 150 shades in stock service and 20 mouliné ones.
