Sustainability and quality are the keywords characterising the range being featured by Klopman, a leading European company in workwear fabrics, at TECHTEXTIL 2019 that opens today in Frankfurt.
To further emphasise its vocation as a sustainable company and to promote a virtuous attitude among its customers, Klopman will give its visitors flower seeds as part of the #Beethechange initiative. A symbolic gift to remind participants of the importance of protecting bees, whose number is drastically reduced from year to year. Without them, 60% of fruit and vegetables would disappear, as would about 25,000 kinds of flowering plants. Planting a flower is a small and symbolic contribution to safeguard species and the environment that surrounds us.
In a dramatic demonstration of production capacity and Klopman’s constant attention to 360-degree sustainability, Klopman sustainable fabrics combine respect for people and the environment with the highest standards of comfort and the quality and durability typical of the company’s products.
The production is based on raw materials that respect the environment and people: polyester made from recycled plastic bottles, wood pulp, cotton certified according to the Fairtrade and BCI standards (Better Cotton Initiative) which take into account the conditions of the producers in developing countries and organic cotton, cultivated in the absence of chemical substances. A very important feature, since cotton uses 2.5% of the world’s cultivated land but consumes 16% of pesticides. Using ecological polyester also means giving new life to a plastic bottle that would take over 1000 years to decompose, saving 45% of energy, 20% of water and 30% of emissions compared to normal polyester.
The K-Flame displays one of the highlights of Klopman’s fabrics, thanks to its performance and market success, and is designed to offer resistance to heat, flames and welds as well as antistatic and electric arc protection. The product is designed specifically for the needs of the petrochemical, chemical and metallurgical mining industry. The characteristics of the fabric: a special inherent flame-retardant fibre, guarantee prolonged resistance, without compromising on comfort and breathability even in the hottest climates.
The best way to respect the environment is to produce products that last over time. Klopman fabrics are designed to offer long durability, ensuring that the wearer always looks professional.
