“Green” meeting with Italian army
Interest in Canepa’s environmentally-friendly patents
Canepa presented its own environmentally-friendly patents to the Italian army which showed significant interest in testing their new textiles. The high-quality of the materials and the environmentally-friendly conscience demonstrated by the company have given it more opportunities for working on uniforms and other materials regularly used in the military sector. This is thanks to Canepa’s SAVEtheWATER®/ Kitotex patent which has enormous potential. With the help of chitosan, a naturally-occurring substance obtained from chitin which is a protein found in the skeletons of crustaceans, the textile is made anti-bacterial, anti-mite and holds its dimensions. These are all properties which may interest many who are not necessarily directly involved in the fashion sector.
