ETHERIQUE

The future becomes reality through the project entitled “Etherique”, the first sustainable luxury line presented by the style office of Drago Lanificio in Biella, created, and crafted using Kapok, a precious natural fiber considered the lightest in the world. Kapok is totally organic: it develops spontaneously in nature, it is extracted by hand from the pods, 10/15 cm long, of the Ciba plant, it has a density of 0.35 g/cm³ (21.85 lb/ft³) and a hollow structure 2 to 4 cm long, with the incorporated air being equal to 80%. For a long time, this characteristic led to the belief that it was impossible to spin this material, but thanks to the constant research and related studies carried out within the spinning department, the Drago Group has developed a correct manufacturing process which has led to the creation of “Etherique”. “Etherique” revolutionizes the luxury market by subverting the rules through the fundamental principles of sustainability, combining classic with modern, history with evolution, all through the union of cotton threads and Kapok strengthened and embellished with Washi filaments, the ancient Japanese paper made using the vegetable fibers of the paper mulberry tree.
