What Setino is Setino is the decisive overcoming of traditional natural duvets and/or with silk natural padding. Setino is the innovation of natural T.Silk...
the health of Setino's natural silk microfibre
Setino and Setino Topper represent the innovation that goes beyond the traditional microfibre double duvet or quilt, which goes beyond the concept of a microfibre quilt with the first and unique natural microfibre duvet . Setino and Setino Topper are a guarantee of health as they are built with a natural microfibre.
What microfibre is
In textiles, the term microfibre defines those fibers that have a titration lower than or equal to 1 Dtex*, (*Dtex=titration system that defines how many meters of a given fiber are contained within a gram of weight). Indirectly, reference is made to very thin fibres, usually less than 10 microns, which due to this fineness guarantee a very soft hand and have certain characteristics.
Microfibre is actually the composition of different synthetic and artificial fibres. The most common composition is polyester/polyamide.
The development of microfibres occurred mainly towards the end of the last century with the advent of synthetic/artificial extrusion fibres, with the never-denied attempt, leveraging on price, to replace natural fibres, and in particular silk, seeking to pursue, without ever approaching it, its excellent characteristics.
Synthetic fibres, especially viscose, were called artificial silks and had enormous development in the field of cleaning products, due to their soft feel and presumed ability to absorb liquids and capture dust. Subsequently, above all thanks to pressing marketing campaigns, aimed at enhancing an indisputable strength from the price point of view, the use of microfibres was imposed in numerous other textile sectors including clothing, accessories and household linen .
The fibers that make up modern microfibres are fibers which, deriving from petroleum, cause very toxic forms of pollution during their production, which release dangerous and harmful substances to the ecosystem, impossible to dispose of, responsible for very high levels of presence of plastic microfibres in waters and in the food chain.
The natural microfibre in Silk
Silk has a fiber fineness ranging from 8 to 12 microns. It is to be considered a natural microfibre. T.Silk 100% Silk, thanks to the innovative processes to which it is subjected, manages to release and make available a high concentration of silk protein fibrils (Fibroin) with a diameter between 25 and 30 nm (1nm =1micron /1000) . T.Silk is in all respects a microfibre.
Why choose the silk microfiber duvet
A traditional synthetic microfibre duvet cannot be defined as an ecological duvet, even and especially when this microfibre or one of its components comes from the recycling of reused products.
A traditional artificial microfibre duvet cannot be a natural duvet, even if it is often advertised as such.
A synthetic microfibre duvet creates a barrier to heat by harnessing it and does not allow the body to breathe, triggering circles of heat/sweat/cooling/cold/heat.
Setino is the exclusive and only duvet in natural microfibre thanks to Cosetex‘s study on fabrics and thanks to the exclusive and patented T.Silk 100% silk padding Setino the natural double duvet in silk microfibre guarantees the hand and softness of a micofibre, the naturalness of a natural fibre, the sustainability of a system, respect for the health of the body, respect for the environment, heat and breathability performance, an unattainable level of comfort.
