19 of March of 2021
The iTechStyle Awards cerimony included A. Sampaio in the group of awarded companies.
With the 33 finalists selected from the innovation showcases in the Fabrics, Accessories and Finished Products categories, presented in the February and October 2019 and February 2020 editions, the iTechStyle jury distinguishes the best of each of the three categories, also electing among all the candidates, the Smart and Sustainability awards, the latter of which consecrates both the material and the finished product.
And it was in this last group - Sustainability of the finished material, that a piece, presented at the Green Circle showcase, resulting from the combination of several natural fibers (wool and cotton) with functional fibers (polyamide and acrylic), all coming from garments whose cycle of life is over, has been awarded.
"This is another recognition of our efforts to develop new sustainable products, but at the same time is is an incentive to continue the search for innovation in this context," explained João Mendes (pictured) CEO of the company.
