RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

OUR TRADITION IN AVANGUARD SOLUTIONS

The placement of Nuova ICOS in the high and medium high band of the Italian and international fashion system requires a constant and global commitment to the many needs of the fashion and chain market for customers, partners and suppliers. To this purpose, the company employs human resources, organized in teams, with complementary skills, capable of implementing operational projects aimed at achieving decisive goals, which, in some cases, are conducted with the cooperation or synergy of external partners.

Underlying these projects is the valorisation of ancient handicraft skills, supported by the most innovative tanning techniques used in production facilities and in the company’s laboratories.

AN ACTIVE PARTNER IN THE FASHION SYSTEM

Projects, Trends and new products.

In synergy with external partners and with the most important Italian style offices, we carry out periodical studies on fashion trends as a preliminary step in order to create proposals and collections of articles that make up our offer.

Nuova ICOS modulates its range of products based on the inspiration of the most important Italian and international fashion designers.

Every collection or article specially-made for the customers is the result of having experimented with the most advanced tanning technologies, integrating the handicraft skills that, from generation to generation, have increased the value of Nuova ICOS and of the leather that it is able to produce.

A CONCRETE RESPONSE TO SUSTAINABILITY

Traceability Project
and REAL FREE

Nuova ICOS is respectful of everything that surrounds it: it respects people, animals and nature, principles inscribed in the company’s DNA which will never be removed.

Consistent with environmental sustainability, the company has launched the REAL FREE project, which aims to develop a tanning system that does not use products containing heavy metals.

We limit the import of raw skins to those countries whose production standards respect the environment, people and animals. Additionally, we register on our suppliers’ list only those who are able to provide us with a true traceability of their lots.

We track each lot with the assistance of computer technologies that store every process of tanning up to the finished product. We are also able to obtain the TRACEABILITY in a later time by providing any information regarding its production.
