Over the last few decades, the textile industry has undergone a dramatic facelift. Although the original machines and their processes are still being used, mills have evolved into more technologically-advanced versions of the originals.
Most important, manufactures started to look for "greener" options, introducing yarns made with recycled materials such as PET from plastic bottles or wool from post industrial waste. More and more we see fabrics created using organic cottons, natural fibers and coating compounds containing corn and other plants rather than the god old petroleum.
The industry has evolved and is now regulating itself with LCI reports and certifications. In this journey we choose to partner only with companies that are on the forefront of this effort.
After more than 50 years of activity in the world of synthetic leather, Coronet is now an international group with a modern, green and increasingly digital soul, capable of working alongside the great fashion maisons towards a sustainable and cruelty-free future.
The soul and beating heart of the company is in Milan, but its field of action extends well beyond Italy with production plants in China and Vietnam.
The great interest in the international market has led the company to focus on the Asian world, without forgetting the sustainability goals that are the flagship of the Italian plants.
