sleep in a forest of 233 trees*

Setino eco-friendly duvets, T.Silk natural padding and the range of SilkGenera silk products actively fight the most dangerous and insidious forms of environmental pollution (plastic microfibres, CO2). All this with the guarantee of exceptional levels of comfort and support for the Italian production chain, wellness, naturalness and sustainability, ecology and care for our bodies.

Sea pollution and the food chain

Natural T.Silk padding and T.Silk Fabrics in 100% Silk are free from microplastic fibres.

 

Air and atmosphere pollution

Each kilogram of silk produced removes 732.96 kg of greenhouse gases (GHG) from the atmosphere, converted into an equivalent quantity of carbon dioxide CO2.

 

From an in-depth study and published research*, based on carbon footprint data of goods and activities, combined with the mitigating effect derived from the cultivation of mulberry trees, a unique and essential element for the nutrition of Bombyx Mori larvae that produce silk  used in the natural T.Silk paddings, it is determined that every kg of silk contained within a product guarantees the environment a saving of more than 700 kg of CO2.

1 hectare of land = 13,200 mulberry trees

1 hectare cultivated with mulberry trees = – 81.650 kg CO2/year

1 plant = – 6.18 kg CO2/year
