KAFTANO “OBAMA” DRESS
The Gattinoni Haute Couture collection is oriented towards the search for a new equilibrium between man and nature. Guillermo Mariotto’s nature-loving credo is “I chose the environment and nature over a fashion that is increasingly aware of business and not particularly oriented towards the future”. His latest creation is the kaftano “Obama”. His face is completely hand painted on a dress made with Ingeo, plant based fibre.

Fashion Helmet offers a new capsule collection of products covered in Ingeo calendered cloth which, being plant based, is an environmentally friendly fibre, together with models covered in vegetable dyed and tanned leather produced by Conceria Tre Effe.
Designer and brand manager of the line of ladies’ footwear that bears his name, Riccardo Rizieri Broglia is specialised in the field of industrial design. A brand new addition to his latest collection is characterised by innovative ‘zero impact’ models, made in calendered Ingeo, plant based fabric that has all the delicacy of silk to the touch. This collection reveals at its heart a balance between glamour and innovative materials that is as rare as it is precious.
SAINT MACLOU ECOLOGICAL CARPET
Saint Maclou has been the first one to sell this ecological carpet in its shops which the final uses are garden and residential. As a real ecological alternative to traditional carpets made from oil, these new eco-carpets show similar performance and qualities such as comfort, aspect, hand, maintenance, and sound isolation... They are made of Ingeo fibres which come from 100% annually renewable resources (plants), and not oil. These Ingeo fibres are then extruded, transformed into a textile web, and back coated. The finished product, is thus environmental-friendly and recyclable.
TANDUS FLOORING PIETRA CARPET
Pietra is the first commercial modular carpet made with Ingeo polymer, an innovative core and sheath fibre system. Utilising the first 100% recycled content backing, Pietra contains 45-59% recycled content and 10% post consumer content by total product weight. Pietra is 100% closed loop recyclable and warranted for 15 years in a commercial application. Pietra was chosen as the first Tandus Flooring style with the Ingeo technology because of its design influence that allows it to play well in all market segments.
TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION FLOOR MAT
By adopting the Ingeo mat products, Toyota benefits from the unique environmental advantages of a fibre made
from plants, not oil. This adoption of new floor mats exemplifies Toyota’s belief that the use of environmentally friendly materials is equally important as design and product performance. Now, the new Prius adds to biobased materials by offering optional floor mats (deluxe type) using an advanced Ingeo fibre system.
