Bamboo Thread

The fact that Prato textile industry continues its intensive research is evidenced by the recent launch of a bamboo thread. The new product was created in the group's Cotonificio Ferrari laboratories.

''We wanted a revolutionary thread that would last for years, be ecologically sound and respect the environment,'' explained Lineapiu' vice president Lola Coppini. ''Obtained from a unique working of the bamboo's chemical makeup, the new thread is 100% natural, it does not crease, and is able to constantly breathe, which gives a fresh and delicate feel to the garment''.

The bamboo fiber has a micro-cavity structure that favours breathing and is resistant to humidity. Cultivated without pesticides, the fiber is antibacterial and free of pollutants, in addition to being 100% biodegradable.
