OLIVE: A NEW MATERIAL IS BORN FROM THE KERNELS OF OLIVES
THE VEGAN, CRUELTY FREE AND SUSTAINABLE ALTERNATIVE THAT COMES FROM OLIVE WASTE
We are always looking for sustainable, non-impacting, vegan and cruelty free materials. After Ribera, a material obtained from the waste of oranges, we have chosen another all-Italian typicality to give life to a new and high-performance material for Arkimedia straps.
AN IMPORTANT COMPONENT OF THE MEDITERRANEAN DIET, A PRECIOUS RESOURCE FOR HIGH QUALITY FABRICS
OLIVE is produced from the pits of Italian olives obtained from the production of EVO oil, of which Italy is a major producer. A totally vegan fabric, made with recycled materials, respectful of the environment and with a certified supply chain that comes from a symbolic product of our country, exported and known all over the world.
After the cold pressing that takes place for the production of oil, a large amount of waste (the kernels) accumulates in the mill, which is collected from Central and Southern Italy and then shredded.
After this process, the granules obtained are ground into a powder which is mixed with PU Bio (plant based polyurethane) to obtain the finished product.
