New York-headquartered interlinings manufacturer Chargeurs PCC is launching a collection of inner components made with sustainable, traceable, blockchain-backed Nativa wool.

The new collection includes an assortment of interlinings, garment padding/insulation, shoulder pads, felts and chest canvas for suiting that combine long-lasting performance with washable, moisture-resistant comfort and softness.

It is made with certified, natural Merino wool fibres that are traceable across the entire value chain, from the farms where the sheep are bred and shorn to the factories where the fibres are spun, to the end garment. The label guarantees that products have been created with respect for the environment and animal welfare and brands incorporating the components can communicate their sustainability credentials to customers by leveraging the Nativa story of certified traceability.

“Sustainability has become a crucial priority for the global fashion industry and we are thrilled to launch this first-of-its-kind collection of green interlining solutions made with Nativa wool,” said Gianluca Tanzi, CEO of Chargeurs Textile. “This collection enables brands to prove their commitment to transparency, sustainability and social responsibility.”

Chargeurs Luxury Materials, a leader in luxury combed wool and sister company to Chargeurs PCC, developed the Nativa branded fibre concept. The farms that supply the wool follow the Textile Exchange’s Responsible Wool voluntary standard that addresses the welfare of sheep and the land they graze on. Suppliers must also adhere to the Nativa protocol that covers animal welfare, land management, corporate social responsibility and traceability via blockchain technology. Current brand partners include Stella McCartney, Vivienne Westwood, Madewell, Napapijri, Reformation and more.
