From the Product Environmental Footprint to the first collection with Sensitive® Fabrics, to respect the environment
In 2016, Herno presented its first PEF study of a men’s jacket, mapping the environmental impact of the textile chain from the production of RadiciGroup nylon thread to Eurojersey’s patented Sensitive® Fabrics to the packaging of the final garment.
PEF acronym for Product Environmental Footprint is a common and unique method to measure the environmental impact of a product along its life cycle in a multi-criteria manner.
After three years this study is validated by an independent certification body: for Spring Summer 2019 Herno presents FIRST ACT, the first collection of outerwear for men and women with PEF certificate and made with Sensitive® Fabrics.
An exclusive primacy in the international textile sector that attests to the environmental performance of a Herno garment by transparently promoting the traceability of the entire production process.
The technical characteristics of the new Herno FIRST ACT collection in use make it possible to impact less on the environment, achieving good environmental performance by using the garment daily.
All this translates into benefits also for the consumer: they are washed in a washing machine at low temperature and do not make a crease without needing to iron. They are non-deformable, with quality manufacturing and therefore durable over time for a more sustainable wardrobe.
