Playing with Fire!

This week we launch a revolutionary fabric called ECO FR for the second time during Milan's design week at the Fuorisalone. ECO FR is a fabric 100% made of linen and viscose that is both flame retardant and biodegradable. Innovative, patented technology is used to create a natural flame retardant yarn, without the use of any chemical additives. As a result of a molecular modification of the cellulose,  ECO FR became fire retardant.  The modification causes the fabric to carbonize, binding oxygen and therefore controlling the flames, without any harmful emissions. The fibre meets international standards for flame retardancy as well as the most important ecological tests. ECO FR protects naturally against fire.  As the video shows, compared to other materials, it's a winner!
