MATERIALS: WHY…YES!

100% RECYCLED POLYESTER Obtained from common plastic bottles, recycled polyester has been used for many years in theclothing sector with enormous benefits to the environment: it allows for not wasting non-renewable resources, such as oil, and reduces the amount of plastic that is disposed of in landfills. Moreover,thanks to new manufacturing processes that have significantly reduced energy use during recycling, polyester has further improved its environmental performance and is available on the market at affordable prices. This is a very important step forward if you take into consideration that, up to a fewyears ago, it could hardly compete with what was obtained from cheaper virgin fibres. Quagga uses only recycled polyester produced in Italy, in the province of Como, obtained from 100% recycled fibres with a tracking …

Quagga project: the group

If the obtuse drag us to the bottom of the earth It must be that, day after day, I have been dreaming for too long. Ivano Fossati, from “I Dreamt a Road” Each of us has worked for many years with some of the leading international clothing brands, contributing to their success and their achievements. Designingclothing collections is a great job and also a very creative one. Designing garments, and then seeing them created ​​and displayed in the window of some shop,generates priceless emotions, as it is also rewarding to see it worn, around the world, by people who have tried it on, chosen it, and then purchased it. Especiallywinter clothes: they protect us from …
