Elcam, innovators of technology and creators of comfort. Since 1970, the Lissone-based company has been working in the upholstery industry, processing carefully selected materials to create cushions and padding for indoor and outdoor furniture and for the marine industry. Active in Italy, Europe and the USA, Elcam has always been keen to grasp the novelties and anticipate future trends, thanks to its experience and constant search for excellence and innovation.
Elcam: sustainable evolution
For Elcam, no progress is real if it is not sustainable and sustainability is a value to be defended throughout the production process: from the materials to the machinery used, as the numerous certifications obtained by the company attest.
Years of research have led Elcam to produce eco-friendly materials such as Aerelle® Blue and BIO, used in the furniture industry to create high performance, environmentally friendly cushions.
Aerelle® Blue: the fibre that saves the oceans
Aerelle® Blue is a recycled polyester filling obtained and created from recycled plastic, supplied by Plastic Bank, a global organisation known for its environmental mission of preventing waste from reaching beaches and oceans.
Once collected, the plastic is cleaned and recycled into Social Plastic®. It is then transformed into flakes that are processed into soft, supple, comfortable fibres that provide a well-balanced microclimate.
Aerelle® Blue boasts a holistic global certification, the GRS (Global Recycle Standard), with the aim of raising awareness and promoting greater environmental responsibility and more sustainable development within the textile industry.
BIO: the 100% recycled biodegradable material
BIO is the revolutionary 100% recycled biodegradable material. Its fibres are optimised to be 'more appetising' for microbes, allowing the fibre to revert to naturally occurring materials while leaving behind components such as CO2 water, methane, biomass and humus.
Thanks to its innovative composition, BIO is able to guarantee excellent performance: light, soft and comfortable, durable, with excellent thermal insulation capacity and water resistance, it is easy to clean and maintain.
