Chinese denim producer Prosperity Textile has partnered up with Italian weaving machinery supplier Itema to cut down on waste in its production line.
Prosperity Textile will now be using Itema’s iSAVERTM technology in its new factory in Vietnam, which is able to completely eliminate the left-hand ‘weft’ waste usually produced during weaving.
Itema estimates that iSAVERTM will save 1,000 kilograms of cotton per machine per year (3 percent of the total raw materials), avoiding the waste of 20 million litres of water.
The new partnership will be showcased at the denim fair Kingpins in Amsterdam between 24-25 October.
