Officina39 shares its plus at Bangladesh Denim Expo

“Positivity” is the core theme of the 13th Bangladesh Denim Expo where the Italian company brings its unique vision, technologies and collaborations.

November 15-16, 2022 – The mathematical sign “plus” has always been part of Officina39’s philosophy: chemistry plus creativity, fashion plus sustainability, tradition plus innovation. The Italy-based company has made of its positive approach a compass to get through the evolution of the industry in the name of circularity and responsibility. This perfectly meets the core theme of the 13th edition of Bangladesh Denim Expo, “Positivity”.

The Multicolor Denim Dreaming collection

The SS 24 collection is a powerful combination of several Officina39 sustainable key technologies aimed to find the sweet spot between “plus” and “minus”: less water use through the evolution of the Aqualess Mission, more circularity by transforming textile fibers from used clothing and manufacturing waste for Recycrom™’s dyeing and printing applications, less waste of energy and time, unifying several processes in the Just One Step Process, and much more plus.

Circularity: The Challenge of a Positive Change

Officina39 over the years has worked hard to shift to a more sustainable model, where circularity represents the new sustainability, where young designers and technicians are involved to develop products based on a circular approach, where boundless imagination sets out to redesign the world. To share this vision Andrea Venier, Managing Director at Officina39, contributes to Session 1 of the seminar “Circularity: The Challenge of a Positive Change“, discussing how challenges can push people to think, re-think in a positive way. Because “circularity” means “positivity” in the textile industry.

Denim Then and Now

In occasion of the 20+ year’ celebration of bluesign® SYSTEM, Officina39 and Prosperity as system partners have joined forces with bluesign taking part in the “Denim Then and Now” project. At Bangladesh Denim Expo an installation presents this project which focuses on the implementation of clean production processes and clean chemistry. Officina39 contributes to it with its Aqualess Mission, featuring two bluesign® APPROVED products for one innovative process: Aqualess Aged, to replace the old Pumice Stone treatment, and Remover IND/J-N, to replace the use of Potassium Permanganate (PP) on denim and obtain a worn and distressed vintage look.
