Marchi & Fildi is an international spinning Group with the brands Marchi & Fildi and Filidea. The production of yarns is wide and meant for several end uses: from hosiery, weaving, circular knitting to furnishing and technical yarns for protective wear and automotive.
During the last 20 years, the company has developed ECOTEC®, a trademark technology that allows the creation of new upcycled yarns using pre-consumer waste from knitting and weaving companies, used clothes and plastic bottles. ECOTEC® has been a pioneer example of circular economy. Its products guarantee the highest standards combined with the added value of sustainability. The process is totally certified and traceable.
All the yarns produced through the ECOTEC® process developed by Marchi & Fildi – Filidea Group reduce the impact on the environment in a meaningful and quantifiable way:
• Energy savings up to 46,9%
• Reduction on greenhouse effect up to 46,6%
• Water consumption throughout the complete process up to 61,6%
These records are based on the LCA Study (Life Cycle Assessment) made in 2020 by ICEA comparing our ECOTEC® item to a similar product made with virgin materials.
