BLEACH OR NO BLEACH? OBLEACH! AND WAKE, NATURALLY TONELLO NEWS/BLOG

By:

We thrive impossible challenges, lateral points of view, and even upside down ones.

Because without ideas ours would just be machines, while instead they are dreams that become reality, processes that constantly change and improve the way we work, insights that come from research that increasingly raises the bar of sustainability and responsibility.

That is who we are, “we are Tonello”, and that’s the way we work.

Tonello OBleach Wake

So, after finishing our obligations and celebrating our success at ITMA 2019, we are now already ready to share our two latest innovations at Kingpins 2019 in Amsterdam, scheduled for the 23rd and 24th of October. Wake and OBleach are two revolutionary, patent-pending processes, which can also be applied to the same garment, at the same time, to create incredible and totally sustainable effects.

We have already talked about Wake: it is the first totally natural dyeing system. In fact, it uses only plants, and vegetable waste, items such as flowers, berries, and roots, which are left to dry and infuse, without harmful chemical additives. Using it is as easy as making an herbal tea, and represents a real paradigm shift.

As a matter of fact:

  • It uses only 100% organic and compostable raw materials
  • It is a sustainable and circular process, with NO additives
  • It drastically reduces CO2 emissions
  • It allows for great water and energy savings
  • It guarantees the safety and healthiness of both the process and the garment in dyeing, for the operators as well as for the final consumer

We will be present in Amsterdam with the Wake Lab, a small laboratory for realizing eco dyes live, using only compostable raw materials.

Tonello OBleach Wake

OBLEACH is the new Tonello process which, by using only ozone, “returns to the future” with an authentic, sustainable and… decidedly cool BLEACH.

These are the main advantages:

  • Contrasting effects
  • Absolute respect for the fibers and the environment, thanks to a low-temperature process
  • Maximum reproducibility, allowed by the fixed recipe

In short, the real Bleach without Bleach has finally arrived. And this a whole year before the total permanganate ban slated to begin in 2020.

But it doesn’t end here.

The technical aspects, the plus points of these two new processes will be enhanced by an “inspiring concept” in typical Tonello style.

In fact, as a tribute to the fiftieth anniversary of the Woodstock Festival, our “Wake & OBleach” collection pay tribute to those 4 days that shook the youth of the world (and not only) with a unique happening, a fusion of music, flowers, peace, rain , mud, nature, love, freedom, and… of course, denim.

RESEARCH SUSTAINABILITY|20 JUNE 2019

Tonello’s signature Laundry (R)evolution is the sophisticated fruit of a radically new conception in garment finishing processes. It is, in effect, a revolution, based on 3 clear words: simple, digital and automatic. And with the All-in-One-System, Tonello is again a finalist at the ITMA Sustainable Innovation Awards.

Tonello Laundry (R)evolution

SIMPLE: THE AGILE INNOVATION

Two technologies centrally manage the entire finishing cycle both efficiently and flexibly, reducing waste and optimizing resources.

Fast, precise, and flexible, Laser Blaze replaces manual abrasion processes allowing the creation of authentic vintage effects as well as the creation of new projects with extreme ease.

Our All-in-One-System performs all washing operations by integrating 4 sustainable technologies into a single machine: ECOfree 2, which uses ozone in both the water and air; NoStone®+ for authentic and pumice-free stone-wash effects; UP, for washing processes with at least 50% less water; Core, a nebulizing system improving performance and reducing water consumption.

Our All-in-One-System has just been proclaimed a finalist at the ITMA Awards 2019: another success, which, 4 years after NoStone®, enriches and makes Tonello’s list of awards totally unique.

Tonello Crea Metro Engenious

DIGITAL: I.T. FOR HUMANS

Three completely new, innovative, and user-friendly software programs for managing and operating the entire laundry, optimizing the processes and ensuring unparalleled performance and flexibility.

Crea is the brand-new software of Laser Blaze, making every operation easy and instantaneous. It is more responsive, faster in performance, user-friendly and it has new, creative functions.

Engenious is the new Tonello washing and dyeing machine management software, designed with two objectives: simplicity and maximum performance. It allows organizing all your processes with intuitive gestures, and even controlling the cycle remotely. Towards a whole laundry digitization and the industry of the future.

Metro processes real data, in real time to check all laundry consumption, optimizing processing times, and improving performance. Metro gives concrete and useful information for improving productivity. It brings the entire laundry at your fingertips.

Tonello Mover

AUTOMATIC: WORK GETS SMART

Loading, unloading, and moving the garments from one machine to another are managed by Mover, our shuttle, which minimizes manual labor and therefore error, ensuring efficiency and safety at the highest levels. Mover reduces downtime, increases performance, and improves conditions and the working environment.

RESPONSIBLE, AND “LEAN”, TRANSPARENT, SAFE, FLEXIBLE, EASY: IN A NUTSHELL, IT IS THE SIMPLE AND SOPHISTICATED REVOLUTION OF THE LAUNDRY ACCORDING TO TONELLO.

HERE AND NOW.

DYEING RESEARCH SUSTAINABILITY WAKE|21 JUNE 2019

WAKE: FROM EARTH TO HEART

100% sustainable, using only organic and fully compostable raw materials.

This is Wake, the first totally natural dyeing system, a result of Tonello research. Research that for years has made visionary, responsible, and ethical choices oriented towards sustainable processes and garment wholesomeness.

Tonello Wake

Wake is healthy both for us and for the environment because it uses only plants and vegetable waste, such as flowers, berries, and roots, dried and infused, with no chemical additives that are harmful to our skin. Using it is easy, almost like preparing an herbal tea: in fact, this is a real revolution, a radical change of paradigm.

Wake technology: smart, flexible, and for everyone

Wake can be installed on any Tonello dyeing or washing machine, and can be used together with all our other All-In-One System technologies to obtain unique and personalized effects.

In essence, Wake guarantees some exclusive benefits that already make it a potential market standard:

  • Uses only 100% organic and compostable raw materials
  • The process is sustainable and circular, with no additives
  • Dramatically reduces CO2 emissions
  • Gives great savings in water and energy
  • Guarantees that the dyeing process and the garment are safe and healthy for both the operator and the final consumer

Tonello Wake natural dyeing system

Our choice: visionary, responsible, and ethical

The use of plants and vegetable waste that are safe for our skin because they contain no harmful pigments. A circular process so natural that it allows discharging any solid, compostable, or biodegradable waste directly in nature, without the need for filters. Offers enormous saving in resources. The chance to respect and help the environment by cultivating the products necessary for the process. These are some of the advantages offered by a process that “awakens” the ecological awareness in all of us.

IN SHORT, ONLY WAKE IS LIKE WAKE.

TONELLO – THE LAUNDRY (R)EVOLUTION

KINGPINS 2019: IN AMSTERDAM TONELLO REVOLUTIONIZES THE LAUNDRY INDUSTRY

At Kingpins in Amsterdam, we will be presenting our Laundry (R)evolution, demonstrating how, with just three simple steps – and only three technologies – it is possible to obtain an incredible number of possibilities on the garment. And how a more efficient, simpler and more sustainable production cycle can be developed as a result. For-real.

Specifically, we will be replacing the processes of manual abrasion with Laser and all wet processes with our All-in-One system in order to achieve an infinity of unique and diversified finishes. This is a single machine that contains the most recent generation of finishing technologies: ECOfree 2NoStone®UP and Core. And, to further highlight the potential of the system, we will be using the same fabric and the same laser design for all the developments.

Finally, with Metro, our brand new software, we will be measuring, with complete transparency, all the real data relating to the consumption used for each individual garment and process as the machine itself will supply the data, guaranteeing the accuracy and truthfulness.

And as if all this were not enough, we will also be presenting a collection of eco-dyeing realized with the combination of our Nitrogen System technologies, that create dyes with very low environmental impact, Jet System, which reduces the consumption by 70% of water, additives, and energy during the process, and Core, by which special effects and performance can be created on the garment through controlled and automated spraying.

IN SHORT, IN AMSTERDAM WE WILL BE GIVING A LIVE PRESENTATION OF WHAT WE CALL THE LAUNDRY (R)EVOLUTION: SUSTAINABLE, SOPHISTICATED, SIMPLE.

 

TONELLO – TOWARDS A SUSTAINABLE GARMENT FINISHING

Tonello and Velocity Apparelz join forces to demonstrate that only through a greater awareness and sense of responsibility from those companies working “on garments” will we, all of us together, be able to plan a future where fashion, art, and design can continue to give us beauty, pleasure, and well-being.

PLANET REHAB, A CAPSULE COLLECTION DEDICATED TO SUSTAINABILITY

By:    

Basically we are always and only looking for beauty, in all its forms.
An outer beauty which corresponds harmoniously with the inner one.

A beauty that is not necessarily canonical and objective, but on the contrary, iridescent, surprising, perhaps unsettling. Like the one imagined and designed by Juan Carlos Gordillo for the “Capsule Collection” Planet REhab, being staged in Munich, from the 29th to the 31st of January 2019.

Tonello Planet REhab

The eclectic collection, with  an unmistakable Latin touch, includes 15 female garments that essentially speak to us of nature – the power of the ocean, the warmth of the sun, the magic and the fickleness of the wind – and that in Juan Carlos Gordillo thin and swollen sketches seem to recall, more or less consciously, even the mysterious and elusive charm of Hugo Pratt’s Corto Maltese.

Above all, these 15 garments tell a story: of respect and collaboration, of shared values, of a common commitment to the detoxification of the planet we live on from the wasted resources, from the invasion of chemical treatments, and aggressive processes with strong impacts.

It is a story to which 4 main characters give their essential contributions:

  • Lenzing, first of all, with its Tencel™ and Tencel™ x Refibra™ fibers, which increase the sustainability of fabrics: made through a low-impact and highly energy efficient process, these decidedly “smart” fibers give softness, stability, and chromatic intensity to fabrics;
  • Tejidos Royo, from Spain, with its valuable and integrally traceable fabrics, produced with a highly sustainable processing cycle;
  • Officina+39, with natural Recycrom dyes, made from recycled clothing and textile scraps.

And then, yes, we are here too, with our All-In-One System that combine Tonello’s star technologies – NoStone®UpCoreECOfree 2 – to drastically reduce the water, energy, and chemical consumption that used to be necessary for denim finishing.

Tonello Planet REhab

The All-in-One System was first conceived from the experimentation carried out in our Research Center, then perfected using the additional suggestions from and collaboration with our clients who wanted to revolutionize with us the concept of laundry, to make it a privileged place for work and experimentation.

“Environmental sustainability, energy saving, and garment wholesomeness have been at the center of our vision, our research, and our production for many years”, says Alice Tonello, Tonello’s R&D director. “We are therefore proud to participate, along with other prestigious companies, at Planet REhab because that work “on the garments” can, all together, plan a future in which fashion, art and design continue to inspire beauty, pleasure and well-being.”

JOIN US AT MUNICH FABRIC START (JANUARY 29-31) AND DISCOVER OUR ALL-IN-ONE SYSTEM AND THE PLANET REHAB COLLECTION.
YOU CAN FIND TONELLO AT THE KEYHOUSE, BOOTH #21 AND THE PLANET REHAB PROJECT AT THE BOOTH #33.

 

 

REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE. AND REINVENT! TONELLO – BLOG

19 OCTOBER 2018  By:

At the next edition of the Kingpins Show in Amsterdam, Tonello will be presenting an exclusive collection of denim garments made in collaboration with Amy Leverton. Created under the banner of sustainability and memory.

Tonello Re-invented in Italy

We’re calling it Re-invented in Italy, the “inspiring” event Tonello has imagined for the next edition of the Kingpins Show in Amsterdam (24-25 October). This is going to be a fascinating journey through time to rediscover the origins of “Made in Italy”, the origins of that “golden age” where a magical and propitious mix of talent and craftsmanship, style and know-how, genius and production capacity irreversibly changed the history of jeans, transforming them from “commodity-garments” into extraordinary interpreters of the contemporary.

Tonello has launched a tempting and difficult challenge to Amy Leverton, author of Denim Dudes: a challenge to create a denim collection inspired by the triple imperative of “Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle”. Reduce energy consumption as well as water and chemical products; reuse, to give new life to vintage garments; recycle fibers and materials.

A unique collection has been created from this encounter between Tonello’s sustainable technologies and Amy Leverton’s creativity – a collection consisting of jeans, shorts, jackets, dungarees, and t-shirts… – all produced using recycled denim fabrics from Candiani DenimTejidos RoyoBossaOrta Anadolu and Arvind. Details and elements from vintage items of Italian brands (Diesel, Replay, Benetton, Versace, Fiorucci, Iceberg, Ellesse, Enrico Coveri, Trussardi Jeans) have been applied to the garments; the labels, also made of recycled materials, are by Panama Trimmings.

The strength of this collection lies, above all, in its re-proposing fragments of collective memory, familiar elements, and deja-vu, in new and surprising ways and contexts. It does so thanks to the progressively evolved technologies that are increasingly able to combine the ethics of sustainability with the infinite options of creativity without limits.

Cheerful and surprising combinations, with an affectionately retro flavor; material compositions and 3D effects; a mix of fibers and carefree accessories; extra large sizes and improbable colors, perfectly integrated in the context: all this to reproduce the knowledge and taste of a highly energetic and primordial fashion, where every path was still open and every style was still allowed, where everything was, and still is, possible.

IN SHORT, A PLUNGE INTO THE PAST THAT WILL GIVE US “FEEL” OF WHERE THE FUTURE IS HEADING.
