    Over the past few years, thanks to structural measures and investments such as the supply of electricity entirely from renewable sources, Cifra, Italy’s warp knit manufacturing company, has significantly reduced its CO2 emissions and still forecasts a further and growing reduction. Cifra is a manufacturing company that produces garments for private brands.

    Cifra’s strong commitment towards a sustainable production process is guaranteed by STeP by Oeko-Tex certification. The strict standard aims to verify and assess ethics, protection and the health of both environment and workers as well as product safety in all areas of the company. Thanks to Cifra’s warp knit seamless technology, operating directly from the yarn to the final garment, manufacturing waste is reduced by 30 per cent compared to traditional cut and sewn methods. Still on the process front, on demand manufacturing plays a key role to reduce stocks and in case goods to be disposed of, the company said in a press release.

    Cifra’s knitting system allows it to rapidly shift to different shapes and patterns during the production process and customers can adjust order request to sales in real time. As for the products, more than 30 percent of Cifra’s production currently comes from eco-sustainable, natural and recycled yarns and demand is further increasing. Econyl yarn is a 100 per cent regenerated nylon 6 yarn from pre- and post-consumer waste otherwise polluting the Earth, like fishing nets, fabric scraps, carpet flooring and industrial plastic rescued from all over the world.
