The synergy with Vibram, protagonist of a presentation during the last edition of Lineapelle, within the project A New Point of Materials. Now the synergy with SCARPA, joining forces with an Italian outdoor excellence. Evolo, Sciarada’s suede produced with high standards of sustainability and circularity, has attracted the attention of the fashion world. And, with its participation in the A New Point of Materials event in Paris on December 7, it continues to attract international attention.
Synergies of excellence
The latest prestigious collaboration is with SCARPA. The Asolo-based company, world leader in the production of footwear for outdoor activities, is particularly attentive to the natural environment. This is why it chose Sciarada suede for the Spirit Evo. A model “distinguished by the first green suede, patented and certified, and by an unmistakable outdoor style that contaminates urban fashion”. Vibram had previously selected Evolo for Component. It is a shoe inspired by sustainability and, above all, by the Do It Your Self philosophy. Here is the video of the presentation at Lineapelle (September 22-24, 2021).
Evolo, the suede by Sciarada
Evolo is the result of eight years of trials, tests and technological innovation by Sciarada’s R&D department. With the new material, the company, a tannery founded in 1977 and leader in suede, recovers and regenerates suede processing waste. The process, patented and certified, eliminates six steps out of sixteen compared to Sciarada’s standard wet blue process. Evolo’s processing reduces water consumption by around 66%, and chemical consumption by 36%, without the need to add extra chromium: CO2 emissions drop by up to 50%. Now, the next appointment is on December 7 at the Italian Embassy in Paris, where Lineapelle is organising a stage of A New Point of Materials.
