Is more Responsible

True sustainability does not just mean respect for the environment, but also includes saving of raw materials nd economic resources, protection of the health and safety of workers and consumers, respect for human ights, rationalisation of production processes.

  • We believe in innovation and research based on safety, skills and a well-grounded and transparent choice of our suppliers.
  • We believe in closely interacting and cooperating with raw material suppliers in order to share and meet the social and environmental standards.
  • We believe in the quality of the work and in the qualification of employees. In the enhancement of skills. In non-discrimination.

Tessilbiella’s code of ethics is based on these principles.

Is more Eco-Friendly

Our daily activities are guided by the rational use of natural resources and the reduction of polluting emissions.

We focus on adopting new smart and sustainable production processes.

We know the importance of protecting the environment as a primary asset, that’s why we are committed to promoting a rational use of resources in our organisation, and to searching for innovative solutions to ensure energy savings through the use of two photovoltaic systems.

We have implemented a lighting system that uses the most advanced LED lamps with low energy consumption.

Is more Sustainable

Our collections largely meet the criteria of environmental sustainability and social responsibility required by the global textile industry, and contain fabrics made with certified materials that meet the environmental and social standards.

We are talking about our sustainable wool, in fixed and stretch versions, of various weights

  • fabrics with organic wool certified by GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard)
  • fabrics with ZQ merino wool (ethical merinos by the New Zealand Merino Company)
  • with ORGANIC fibre (by Chargeurs luxury materials)
  • mixed viscose yarns certified by FSC (Forests for all forever)

All our wool items can be made with these “eco-friendly” yarns.

We like to give our customers the opportunity to choose the type of yarn that best reflects their “sustainability values”.

Wool with these characteristics all come from “non-mulesed” wool production.

Our sustainable choices

The GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, and includes strict environmental and social criteria. The environmental criteria include all chemical inputs (e.g. pesticides, dyes, process chemicals), which must meet the basic requirements on toxicity and biodegradability.

The ZQ Certification identifies merino wool coming from farms located in New Zealand and selected by the New Zealand Merino Company. ZQ wool is defined as “ethical” because it is selected and produced through a sustainable production chain that protects the wellbeing of people and animals involved.

ORGANICA is a label created by Chargeurs Luxury Materials in 2017 to identify the quality and traceability of wool fibres which are produced responsibly, with care for people, animals and the environment.

FSC is an international certification specifically for the forest sector and products – wood and non-wood – sourced from forests. Fabrics made of fibres of vegetable origin such as viscose can be very environmentally friendly, but only if the cellulose fibres they are made of come from forests managed in a correct and sustainable manner. FSC has been involved to ensure their traceability.
