POZZI ELECTA: the production of yarn for Orange Fiber
The Orange Fiber yarn, created in collaboration with Pozzi Electa, is a high quality product that can be used by itself or together with other materials – such as silk or cotton – to create fabrics with different characteristics and weights.
What we want to tell you about is the story of Pozzi Electa company, by which we have entrusted the task of transforming the innovative TENCEL™ brand lyocell fiber composed of orange cellulose and wood cellulose into a precious yarn. Carding, coupling, twisting and winding are necessary steps to obtain Orange Fiber yarn which must be taken care of by expert hands.
How is Orange Fiber yarn born?
Pozzi Electa, a spinning company of excellence in the textile sector since 1889, combines innovation, sustainability and Made in Italy manufacturing tradition and is our partner for the creation of yarn cones at the base of each of our products.
Starting from the TENCEL™ branded lyocell fiber composed of orange cellulose and wood cellulose, developed in partnership with the Lenzing Group, world leader in the production of special textile fibers starting from wood, today we offer two yarns composed of 100% this fiber, with counts 40/1 and 40/2 N.E.
Pozzi Electa: an Italian story of tradition and eco-sustainable yarn
Pozzi Electa company was founded in 1889 in the Bergamo area, by the entrepreneur from Busto Arsizio Pasquale Pozzi, who in 1858 inherited the factories of his father-in-law’s company, Ottolini & Ferrario, located in Olgiate Olona and Busto Arsizio. He changed the name of the company, renaming it Pasquale Pozzi spinning and weaving.
In 1890 the current spinning plant was built in Ponte Selva and the first plant of the Fratelli Pozzi which today has 6,300 ring spindles and 130 workers, 35 men and 95 women.
Today, Pozzi Electa holds numerous company certifications issued by the International Association for Research and Testing in the field of textile and leather ecology.
The adoption of sustainability policies by Pozzi Electa also goes through the choice to use self-produced renewable energy, coming from the installation of a photovoltaic park from hydroelectric plants for a total of 850 kW.
The biocompatibility of the production process proves to be twofold, both in the spinning phase and in that of energy, hydroelectric and photovoltaic production.
Every year Pozzi Electa invests in eco-sustainability through massive interventions in the production chain, useful for reducing energy consumption and, consequently, limiting the impact on the environment
The result of this partnership are yarns developed for the creation of excellent textile products, from clothing and fashion accessories to home furnishings, which can be printed and dyed like traditional fabrics.
Versatile, innovative and no season, they are the perfect ingredients for brands and designers in the fashion sector who care about sustainability and intend to create products made to last over time.
