Chemical and health

Chemistry 4sustainability® protocol

For what concerns the correct approach to the chemical substances in the production process finalized to the gradual elimination of the toxic and harmful substances for humans’ health and the environment, Lanificio Luigi Ricceri applies the 4sustainability® protocol for the implementation of MRSL and ZDHC. The ZDHC MRSL is a list of chemical substances subject to a usage ban. The MRSL applies to chemicals used in facilities that process textile materials and trim parts for use in apparel.

Sustainability and environment

Fundamental certifications in the environmental area

Our choice to achieve the goal of sustainability is divided into some fundamental steps, represented by the acquisition of fundamental certifications in the environmental area. Global Organic Textile Standard guarantees the application throughout the supply chain of an identification and traceability system in order to verify the origin of the material, as well as stringent environmental and social responsibility requirements. Global Recycled Standard certified fabrics are made from recycled material (e.g. nylon, cashmere, etc...) and have been made in compliance with stringent environmental and social criteria. Forest Stewardship Council certification for our fabrics guarantees the origin of the cellulose used for the production of viscose, from traced forests and therefore not subject to the indiscriminate exploitation of world forestry resources. Lanificio Luigi Ricceri also respects the Nativa Protocol which certifies every step pf the supply chain, from farm to brand, to certifies the animal welfare.

Animal Welfare

origin and cure of the animals

We have always developed our own research regarding raw materials paying attention to the animals well-being: on particular requests we can ensure certification of the origin and cure of the animals. Our wool is actually certified to the RWS standard, coming from responsibly managed farms, in compliance with stringent requirements for animal welfare and reduced environmental impact. We also respect the Nativa Protocol which certifies every step pf the supply chain, from farm to brand, to certifies the animal welfare.
