At the beginning of 2019, Re.VerSo has been selected as one of the protagonists of the Sustainable Thinking project of the Museo Salvatore Ferragamo, thanks to the value it bears in the field of responsible innovation. Representing excellence as the result of a culture of Made in Italy traditions, combined with a new vision of smart innovation, Re.VerSo covers the woven textiles market through the unique offer of A. Stelloni Collection by Mapel.

For the next season, A.Stelloni Collection by Mapel offers even more Re.VerSo solutions with strong focus on noble fibres, such as Re.VerSo Baby Camel and Re.VerSo Cashmere for coats and jackets. It features new finishes, draps, streaks, velours and, mostly, Re.VerSo Baby Camel developments, as the company is becoming leader for the sustainable Camel market.

Sustainable collection

Through all the entire collection including Re.VerSo, shine Alpaca, Wool, Mohair, both pure and in blends, in weights that are addressed to a wide range of items, from very light jackets to heavy coats in double, diagonal, 3D structures. The finishing always remains a fundamental added value of the collection; from laminates to sables to the most extreme Casentino finishes, a modern and innovative feature that defines the A.Stelloni Collection by Mapel line.

“Characterised by great creativity, a consolidated know-how and a very detail-oriented culture in the textiles industry, A. Stelloni Collection by Mapel represents a competitive industrial reality, increasingly engaged in research and development, which Mapel has become a leader in,” the brand says.

Originally from Prato, in the mid-60s the company started moving its first steps in the industry of fur fabrics with Vi-Ma carding, manufacturing semi-finished materials as a sub-contractor and commercialising synthetic fibers. Later on it has become a truly internationally renowned group with a fully vertical productive cycle that has diversified into footwear, clothing, furniture and technical fabrics. Thanks to a capillary commercial network across all continents, the Mapel SpA group is characterized by a flexible structure able to adapt to the market’s requests and by a natural predisposition for research, which is the real strength to be able to fetch and be ready for changes, just like A. Stelloni Collection shows us.

Circular economy

Re.VerSo works with its Italian qualified partners, such as Green Line, Nuova Fratelli Boretti for the raw material, A. Stelloni Collection by Mapel for textile fashion, Filpucci for the hi-end knitting threads, and Filatura C4 for design contract textile and for woven fabrics in general. Through these partnerships, Re.VerSo offers smart yarns and fabrics solutions with high aesthetics and quality, collecting, selecting, transforming pre-consumer wool and cashmere.

Re.VerSo represents a system of circular economy, with the addition of a new generation of values and quality. It is a promoter of environmental savings (-92% of water, -82% of energy consumption and -97% of carbon dioxide emissions as witnessed by ICEA LCA study, compared to virgin wool), an artisanal approach that distinguishes the industrial supply chain.

Leftovers can be sourced directly by Re.VerSo supply chain, otherwise the Re.VerSo advanced technology process welcomes retailers and brands to supply their pre-consumer wool and cashmere woven and knitted off cuts, transforming them into high-quality yarns and fabrics integrated for a circular economy.
