Project — Cocoon


We were the main sponsors of the Antarctic expedition from December 2019 to February 2020, which involved three professional mountain climbers from CAI in Biella. 

The expedition was promoted by the Biella section of the Alpine Club and the National Research Council, and its objective was to study microplastic contamination in Antarctic glaciers.

It was also an opportunity to test garments produced with an innovative pure silk Cocoon fabric that was inspired by the properties of the Bombix Mori silkworm: protection from external thermal and bacterial agents, high resistance, non-allergenic, with protection from UV rays and maintenance of optimum humidity conditions. 

These silk properties were combined with new production techniques and innovative products, ultra-light weights that maintained a very high level of comfort in both cold and warm climates.
