There is a gas that has been used for over 100 years to disinfect, sterilize, render non-toxic water, air, and surfaces in the fields of food, medicine, pharmaceutical, etc.
This gas is lethal for various pathogens and for most viruses because it alters their RNA and DNA, and, at high concentrations, it also undermines the capsid, or external protein shell. Several authoritative scientific studies show, it is effective in 99% of cases.
We’re talking about Ozone.
Since 2010 we at Tonello have been producing technologies that use ozone reliably and safely. These technologies are also used to sanitize and disinfect garments, accessories, and equipment.
Today, in the midst of the global emergency caused by the COVID-19 virus, we are particularly happy to present the complete Tonello sanitizing range, from production to the shop: in fact, the disinfecting technology can be installed on all of our washing and dyeing machines, while a specific software upgrade will allow conversion of the ozone technologies already in use for the treatment of denim (Ofree, ECOfree or ECOfree 2) to also allow sanitizing and disinfecting.
And for those who are not yet using Tonello washing and dyeing machines?
The upcoming reopening of clothing stores brings with it two fundamental questions: how to make garment try-ons safe for the customers?
And how to give shopkeepers the certainty that they are following a protocol which, beyond the now normal “format” (social distancing – staggered entrance – gloves – masks – sanitizing gel), is actually virus-proof and allows them to go back to work with relative serenity?
In this case, the definitive solution is SaniCare, a new range of static cabinets for sanitizing, and disinfecting garments, accessories, and protective devices. The SaniCare cabinets allow garments to be re-readied for try-on or sale in just minutes.
SaniCare cabinets are safe, easy-to-use, and available in different sizes, in order to meet the needs of various types and sizes of commercial environments: from large spaces in shopping centers to city boutiques, today they can offer their clients an even more salient service. In addition, a more industrial size has been designed for disinfecting during the last phase of garment production, before shipping.
In fact, SaniCare neutralizes most known pathogens: the customer in a shop can thus try on garments with complete confidence that there are no dangerous viruses, fungi, dermatitis, or other annoying dermatological contamination, etc. lurking on the garments.
One day, hopefully very soon, the COVID-19 will be defeated, but something has already changed forever, even, and above all in the habits of consumers and the increasingly attentive and aware requests from the final customer.
That is something that for us at Tonello has been our “mantra” forever.
We are living in a time of epochal changes that are imposing essential questions on our way of living, working, and producing: questions that we are all asking ourselves, all over the world, all at the same time.
In fact, it has never been so evident that we are all interdependent: we are increasingly aware of this and we cannot pretend that nothing is happening.
“Suddenly everything seems older”, a sensational BMW campaign claimed several years ago .
“Suddenly everything has changed”, we’re saying today, and that is why we must reflect on this long and hard, in order to find innovative answers and solutions.
At Tonello we’re asking ourselves in particular what “doing business” is going to look like from now on. We are convinced that we’re facing something that is going to accelerate and reorganize the mental processes that were already in progress and that the most forward-looking companies have already been considering.
Perhaps we have a unique, unrepeatable (hopefully), and precious opportunity: to rethink our job in terms of respect, responsibility, and “reliability”.
Reliability is a wonderful word, because it encompasses credibility, loyalty, ethics, as well as reliability.
Reliability, understood as trust, as commitment: it means being there, for ourselves, for the people who work with us, for our customers, collaborators, and suppliers. In short, for everyone we work with.
Being a point of reference means a lot to us, reliable people for others: human to human.
In our opinion, Reliability is a value that derives its importance from knowing how to go beyond simple business, and returning to what the company has always been: an organization that provides for people’s well-being, and their economic, cultural, and social growth.
This is an essential asset for the community and for the territory it operates in.
For some time we have already been carrying out an internal process involving and giving value to our people and the time has now come to share this fundamental value with all of you.
Thus we are inaugurating a “Made by People” section of our blog dedicated to our extended family, to everyone, who face the toughest challenges along with us, with commitment, talent, team spirit, and courage, and with the strength and determination of those who knows they are doing something important and essential: from marketing to production, from administration to “service”, from “sales” to management.
The faces, the stories, the testimonies of our people with become an integral part of our communication because they are Tonello’s “soul”, and day after day they are the ones who literally, “make” the Tonello Brand.
So today we’re happy not to be talking to you about our “machines” (we’ll get back to that subject as soon as possible, obviously), but we’re introducing our “souls” to you: from marketing to production, from administration to “service”, from sales to management.
|Dear customers and friends,|
You may be aware about the current situation in Italy in relation to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Since there are many, conflicting reports about it, we’d like to give your our side of the story.
The situation is changing continuously and positively. Here in Tonello everyone is well, healthy, and we’re all continuing our everyday lives.
We are monitoring the situation regularly and we are guaranteeing normal working activities and follow up from our headquarters in Sarcedo (VI).
This means that our production is not in any way delayed, and will continue to run as usual. The same goes for our Research Center for the developments of samples and collections.
On the other hand, some activities in foreign Countries, like visits and workshops, might be postponed due to possible restrictive policies that go beyond our decision-making power.
We are sorry for any inconvenience caused, but we are sure about your understanding and confident that the situation will go back to normal soon.
5 episodes that tell the story of a true evolutionary leap in the world of garment finishing, in the name of practicality, transparency, responsibility.
5 videos that introduce you to the protagonists, the stars of an authentic revolution that represents a radical paradigm change and represents our contribution to helping the planet.
Soon to be aired on all Tonello’s channels.
Episode One: The Beginning.
We’ll discover the starting point of an ambitious project that began last year: reducing waste in the amount of energy and environmental resources used. Since there were no convincing solutions on the market, we decided to take up the challenge ourselves, and at ITMA 2019 we presented our trump card.
We called it “The Laundry (R)evolution”.
Episode Two: The Concreteness.
The revolution comes alive: improving performance while at the same time, reducing consumption. The overview introduces the three simple and decisive steps for achieving this goal.
For garment finishing, it marks the beginning of a new era.
Merry Xmas and Happy New Year!
While wishing you the best and relaxing Xmas holidays, we remind you that our offices will be closed from December 24 to January 6 (included).
Desde 1981 investigamos, experimentamos, innovamos. Y hacemos mucho más que fabricar máquinas de acabado.
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.
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:
We will be present in Amsterdam with the Wake Lab, a small laboratory for realizing eco dyes live, using only compostable raw materials.
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:
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.
JOIN US AT KINGPINS AMSTERDAM (OCTOBER 23-24), TRANSFORMERS AREA, BOOTH T5, AND DISCOVER WAKE AND OBLEACH.
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.
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.
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.
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.
