Familitex, the weaving company based in Barcelos, presented new knitting made with cork fabricated on a circular loom. The mesh is a part of the ‘Green Line’ distinguished by eco-friendly raw materials use.
This knitting – presented on October 27 by Familitex through social networks – is produced using cork, a 100% natural, recyclable raw material and a sustainable, biodegradable, and renewable resource. This new approach is, therefore, revolutionary and allows modifying the intrinsic structure in the production of the knit, allied to the company’s sustainable and circular commitment.
The ‘Green Line’ is a range of GOTS and OCS-certified products that use only recycled and certified organic materials, ensuring traceability of the production process and the seal that guarantees all standards to minimize harmful environmental impact.
In the same sense of saving resources and reducing waste, Familitex is one of the Portuguese textiles that installed the Smartex V1 on its circular looms in January 2021. The innovative system created by Portuguese technology uses artificial intelligence to inspect the knittings and detect defects.
