M.I.T.I. for Maloja: a successful partnership in the sign of green fabric

By 22 June 2018News

Among the latest creations by M.I.T.I., the GreenSoul line is an authentic innovation in the world of green fabric: the first warp knit stretch 100% sustainable fabrics made with recycled yarns high performance.

The results were not long in coming, involving some of the companies in the sportswear world that are focusing more on the issues of environmental sustainability.

This is demonstrated by the partnership between M.I.T.I. and the German outdoor clothing company Maloja, which has created most of the items in the 2019 collection (in particular for cycling and ski mountaineering) using the Thermal Green stretch raised fabric from the GreenSoul line. This choice was explained by Sven Köhler, textile engineer and head of production at Maloja:

“When developing products, we are always looking for environmentally friendly materials. Finding these materials is not always easy, especially for functional garments. Therefore it is increasingly important that textile manufacturers like our partner M.I.T.I. from Italy dedicate their production entirely to the development of environmentally friendly materials. Needless to say we were immediately impressed, when M.I.T.I. Tech showed us Thermal Stretch ECO from their new Green Soul collection. For the first time, Thermal Stretch ECO, which is a brushed, stretchy fabric, is made from 100% recycled materials, recycled nylon (83%) and recycled spandex (17%). Producing in this way meant that waste that was previously unusable was made usable and ultimately material that earlier on would have been waste has been transformed into a premium product”.
