Gramicci’s booth will also brim with new product enhancements across the board that are sure to wake shoppers from their slumber. Check out advanced developments in organic performance fabric technologies from Gramicci’s Greenicci line, one of the fastest growing segments of the business.
The already successful Urban Biking offering includes organic bike commuting apparel that carry into every day work wear. In addition, there is new innovative lightweight insulation in all recycled or organic outer layer options.
For high energy activities Gramicci has developed Evo-Tek, a dual color-plated single jersey made from 55% organic cotton and 45% recycled polyester. The fabric is being used in both men’s and women’s products for Fall 2009. The product features store away pockets for commuting and comfort technology for body moisture management.
Responding to consumer demand for the combination of performance and environmentally-friendly outerwear Gramicci offers three revolutionary fabric solutions for Fall 2009: Re-Gen Twill, Pitch Performance Fleece and the silky Lux Eco Weave.
Re-Gen Twill represents the ultimate in recycling. Re-Gen is comprised of recycled hemp and organic cotton that is swept up from the sample room floor once yarn has been spun. The material is actually picked apart, sorted and recast as a durable twill used in a men’s work wear blazer and a woman’s sculpted jacket. Re-Gen’s recycled fibers give the fabric a rich tweed look. The end result is 35% recycled hemp, 35% recycled cotton and 30% organic cotton. Products are sphere-washed for extraordinary softness. Each design is timeless â€“ that piece that will be in the wardrobe for years to come.
Gramicci’s exclusive Pitch Performance Fleece is lofty, warm, breathable Knotted Loop Knit in 55% organic cotton and 45% recycled polyester. Pitch Performance is used for multi-function Hoodies that can be layered or worn as outer-garments. These pieces are modern in their design with all the right zippers, as well as media, phone and stash pockets.
Organic Lux-Eco Weave is a satin hoodie extraordinaire. Called the Gretta Hoodie, it is made of Gramicci Lux Eco Weave, a unique make up of 77% hemp and 23% silk fiber finished with a soft Bastian dye and Sphere wash.
The Greenicci collection has become an integral component of Gramicci’s portfolio, accounting for more than 40% of the company’s total sales. EVO-TEK, Re-Gen Twill, Pitch Performance and Lux Eco-Weave are representative of just a few of the Never The Norm innovations that have helped Gramicci enjoy consistent double-digit growth for the past three years.
