ASSM/LATION collection fabrics
MAIN FABRIC / 100% RECYCLED WOOL AND CASHMERE CLOTH
The main material of our coats is a recycled wool and cashmere cloth. We chose wool because it is a natural animal material with proven functional properties, it insulates and regulates humidity and temperature naturally. It is a hypoallergenic and hygienic material that is easy to take care of. This weaving enhances waterproofing, robustness and longevity of the wool. We opted for a wool blend with cashmere, for a sensual, comfortable touch and a finer appearance. Mechanical recycling has been perfected for years and today we have opted for a fully recycled woolen cloth, in accordance with our values to avoid the production of waste and new wool.
> GRS certified spinning mill.
> REACH certified woolen cloth.
LINING / SUSTAINABLY SOURCED VISCOSE TWILL
Viscose is an artificial material made from natural component chemically transformed. Viscose is created from wood pulp and keeps the properties of natural fabrics, it is breathable but it is also silky, fluid and soft. Perfect properties for the lining of our coats. The moiré reflections of viscose bring a luminous contrast to our creations. The twill weave is characterized by oblique ribs. In addition to referring directly to our brand, it is a more resistant weave than satin or plain weave, more adapted to the repeated friction that the linings undergo. Our viscose is FSC certified to ensure the traceability and good management of the forests from which the raw materials are coming from.
Our lining is woven in Italy by Manifattura Pezzetti.
> FCS certified raw materials.
> OEKO-TEX 100 certified fabric.
INTERLINING / 100% RECYCLED POLYESTER COATED WITH 60% BIO-BASED POLYAMIDE
Our coats are covered with interlining to stiffen the fabric and accentuate the structured effect, an invisible fundamental aspect that is even more important with our artistic line. The interlining also strengthens the fabric and increases the longevity of the piece. We chose polyester for its highly circular properties, being aware that our coat was not machine washable, accepting very little opportunity for polyester to degrade into micro-plastic.
Our interlining is made in France par Chargeurs*PCC.
BOUTONS / 4 TROUS EN CHANVRE RECYCLÉ À 80%
The buttons of our coats are a detail coherent with the rest of our choices. They are made from 60% recycled hemp, 20% recycled binder and 20% other binders and dye. We have chosen buttons with four holes, for a better hold, with matte finishes for more sobriety and to not attract the eye, which must above all appreciate the sculptural silhouette of our creations. Our buttons have a soft touch consistent with our main fabric, extending the sensitive experience that our coats are embodying.
Our buttons are made in Italy by Bottonificio Piemontese.
ZIP / 100% RECYCLED POLYESTER TAPE WITH GALVANIZED ZAMAK SLIDER
Mizar is the only one of our coats to have a zipper. We have chosen a polyester tape that is resistant to traction and friction, it is 100% recycled. The slider is made of zamak, an alloy of zinc, aluminum, magnesium and copper, particularly popular for casting thin and complex parts. It is also galvanized, a mechanical anti-corrosion treatment. The set is black, to remain discreet..
Our zip are made in Italy by ZIP Goffredo.
