The Futura range is based on the recovery of textile waste from the Albini brand.

“This second-life project allows us to reduce the amount of virgin pulp in production by recovering textile by-products destined for disposal, while optimizing the energy and emissions of each production process,” explains Céline Bertuzzi, Marketing Director Fedrigoni Special Papers. “Its manufacture posed a number of challenges, not least that of achieving high technical and aesthetic properties. We deployed all our know-how in paper process management, investing heavily in research and development and carrying out multiple tests. Futura production begins with the sorting of off-cuts, either from the weaving process or from the sampling and quality control department, which are frayed and then dusted. The cotton is then added to the cellulose mixture to produce a cardboard used to create a variety of communication media. Recovering mercerized cotton waste, which is very difficult to process with traditional industrial equipment, required a great deal of innovation to produce a rigid tissue paper that is both soft and durable.”
