The never-ending story of recycled wool, according to Manteco. While the fashion industry struggles to find solutions to lower its footprint, an Italian wool recycling enterprise has developed a way to reach a zero-waste system. One enterprise that is improving wool recycling techniques and strategies is Manteco, created in 1943 by Enzo Mantellassi under the name of Lanificio San Marco. The name was changed to Manteco (Mantellassi Compagnia Tessile) in 1983 by Enzo’s son Franco, while the enterprise was starting to gain recognition for the quality and variety of regenerated wool colors that it could offer. Since 2000, the heads of the company are the brothers Matteo and Marco, Enzo’s nephews. Under their direction, in 2014 the enterprise started to apply a zero-waste policy, an extremization of lower-waste policies carried forward by brands in the fashion industry [...]
