Very interesting canvas, with an evident weft characterized by the interweaving of yarns of different compositions. Depending
on colours, his look goes from casual to more elegant. It differs from E. C. O. Aurora for their particular design structure, leaving
to personal taste the preference.
50% AMNI SOUL ECO® - 50% Cotton
o Amni Soul Eco® by Solvay. It is the world’s first polyamide yarn to degrade in just five years, after which it is disposed of
under controlled conditions, as demonstrated by laboratory biodegradation tests in compliance with ASTM D5511. Actually,
it is a polyamide with a formulation of additives that ensure a higher degree of biodegradability. These additives facilitate the
access of bacteria to the microscopic structure of the fiber, in the sense that they “swell” the fiber when exposed to high levels
of humidity and trigger the biofilm formation process. Once the biodegradation process has started, polyamide, with its carbonand
hydrogen-based chemical structure, is intrinsically food for bacteria. The product is OEKO-TEX® certified. Amni Soul Eco®
is produced by using sustainable processes that involve, in particular, the recycling of process water and the treatment of greenhouse
gases before they are released into the environment. In addition to degrading about ten times faster than conventional
polyamides, Amni Soul Eco® is also 100% recyclable and convertible into a new product.
o Cotton: STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certified yarn.
STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certified fabric.
STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is a worldwide consistent, independent testing and certification system for raw, semi-finished,
and finished textile products at all processing levels, as well as accessory materials used. Since its introduction in 1992, the
central focus of the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® has been the development of test criteria, limit values and scientific test
methods. On the basis of its comprehensive and strict list of requirements, comprising several hundreds of regulated individual
substances, the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® takes account of:
o Important legal regulations regarding azo colourants, formaldehyde, pentachlorophenol, cadmium, nickel, etc;
o Numerous harmful chemicals, dangerous for health, even if they are not yet regulated by law;
o The requirements of Annexes XVII and XIV of the European Chemicals Regulation REACH as well as of the ECHA
SVHC Candidate List insofar as they are assessed by the OEKO-TEX® Expert Group to be relevant for fabrics, textiles,
garments or accessories.
Following discussions and developments that are considered relevant, the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® requirements are
updated as quickly and effectively as possible;
o Requirements of the US Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) for lead;
o Numerous classes of substances that are also relevant for the environment.
