Il cielo in una stanza

Silk for future

Silk is an intrinsically natural material, relying only on silkworms and their nutrients, mulberry leaves. Growing mulberry trees does not require watering nor pesticides, and the manufacturing processes of silk have a very low environmental impact. Silk fibre, being the combination of two natural proteins, leaves no residues in the environment at the end of the product’s life. It is also very suitable for recycling since it maintains its qualities over time.

Moreover, silk has the uncommon ability to be a thermal, acoustic and electrical insulator at the same time, while its fibrous protein (fibroin) in particular is responsible for the well-being sensation silk gives to our skin and body.

For more than one hundred and twenty years Cosetex has been working in the context of silk. The founders started collecting discontinuous silk materials from local reeling mills in northern Brianza, Bergamo, and in the Milan area. Led by a third generation family leader, Cosetex now aims at encouraging the use of discontinuous silk fiber in many different fields through the creation of networks and structures for studying, providing information about and promoting the outstanding features of this wonderful fibre.
