Legend has it that a sailor brought his beloved a seaweed from distant seas as a gift. The woman, wanting
to preserve its beauty, replicated the design and holes with needle and thread. And so lace was born.
Since that moment, lace has lived within the walls of churches and castles, visited race tracks and catwalks,
changing shape and color according to seasons and times.
Among the companies involved in writing a new chapter in the history of

energy consumption, including GREENDROP, the new GOTS-certified digital pigment printing system.
From athleisure to fashion and underwear, from sarongs to bodysuits, from evening dresses and bridal
gowns to the world of denim and high fashion, the Iluna lace remains a certainty in all its forms
