Zerrobarracento is a young Italian brand established in 2020. One of the company mission is to make zero waste outerwear in Italy.
The brand has a strong traced supply chain all made in Italy, and a careful selection of sustainable materials and eco-packaging. On Zerobarracento website you can see the list of all suppliers involved in the process.
The raw materials are innovative and most of all certified (Oeko-Tex® Standard 100, GRS). It is very interesting the Zerobarracento design process. Usually, around 15% of textiles go wasted during production. By developing its zero-waste technique, the brand eliminates textile waste at the design stage. This is a unique approach to reduce the use of natural resources (https://zerobarracento.com/pages/about).
The packaging is made of compostable mailers, eco-friendly tissues and stickers. The compostable mailers are made from a combination of PBAT, a bio-based polymer which is compostable, and PLA which is made up of plant materials such as regular field corn and wheat straw. These are certified and incredibly low-impact resources.
