Interlining specialist Chargeurs*PCC Fashion Technologies has launched two sustainable wool padding blends featuring blockchain-backed Nativa wool.

Chargeurs *PCC says the blends create solutions that retain loft, control odours, provide natural thermoregulation, and are moisture resistant—in addition to being traceable and sustainable.

The announcement was made at Milano Unica today (1 February) and sees Chargeurs *PCC introduce a blend with 85% sustainable Nativa wool and 15% environmentally friendly, plant-derived polylactic (PLA), which offers enhanced degradability, as well as a blend with 80% sustainable Nativa wool and 20% durable, recycled polyester certified by GRS for traceability. These high-quality products combine the best features of wool with sustainable fibres to create padding products that are sustainable and performant, Chargeurs *PCC says.

The company provides end-to-end solutions for the world’s leading fashion apparel brands by designing interlining, a technical fabric used to help garments retain their shape and structure.

It explains Nativa branded fibre was launched by its sister company Chargeurs Luxury Materials, under Chargeurs Textile. Along with following Textile Exchange’s Responsible Wool Standard, the farms that supply Nativa are also held to a second proprietary protocol that includes four pillars surrounding animal welfare, land management, social responsibility, and traceability via blockchain technology.

“By using Nativa wool fibres in Chargeurs *PCC padding, we have created new possibilities for supreme performance, comfort, warmth, and hand feel,” says Gianluca Tanzi, CEO of Chargeurs Textile. “Working together with Chargeurs Luxury Materials, we have been able to create unique products that combine the best features of wool together with sustainable fibers for performance and comfort.

“Nativa leads the way in terms of social, animal and environmental responsibility. We’re very proud to now incorporate Nativa wool into products for the customers of Chargeurs *PCC. By using Nativa, the world’s best brands get to prove their strong commitment to transparency, sustainability and responsibility and prove their respect for the new standards expected by consumers.”

Towards the end of last year, Chargeurs*PCC Fashion Technologies launched a partnership with Custom Wrkshop, an on-demand platform for customisation and made-to-order apparel, shoes and accessories.
