Firstly announced in June, the FUTURE/Lab project has now taken off. This special sustainable supply chain initiative, developed and supported by Fulgar in collaboration with NABA, Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti is implemented by ten talented students of the third year of the Academy’s BA in Fashion Design.
Fulgar aims at creating a crucible of new 4.0 designers, all with a deep commitment to green issues and who can express their ethical creativity through a more sustainable approach involving experimentation with new fabrics and production processes with reduced environmental impact.
For more than ten years now, Fulgar has been working towards greater sustainability through a green corporate programme and an entire portfolio of ecological products. The company has asked young designers to create their designs using only fabrics produced by Italian companies part of the sustainable supply chain, made from some of the ecological yarns in Fulgar’s green portfolio: EVO® by Fulgar, the bio-based yarn obtained from castor oil, Q-NOVA®, the eco-friendly fibre obtained from regenerated raw materials and the biodegradable Amni Soul Eco® yarn.
