Tonello presents UP: Less is More

After NoStone®, Water Brush, and Core, denim washing has reached a crucial turning point with UP. This patented technology reduces the liquor ratio to unparalleled levels, saving water and energy and making water filling and draining faster. UP is a revolutionary innovation applicable to all existing Tonello machines, including the least recent. Because Tonello machines do not age, they evolve.

Tonello introduces Safe Garment collection

Tonello’s Safe Collection features denim garments with an authentic worn-out look that are safe for workers to treat and for consumers to wear. This achievement was perfected by combining different technologies and, in the same way, by avoiding the use of any type of hazardous chemicals. An example of this is potassium permanganate and sodium hypochlorite, two both toxic and polluting products of standard use in the finishing of jeans.

From here to there, from Sarcedo to the world

A non-book book, experimental, artistic but never didactic; an “emotional object” of inspiration and design, made up more of free associations – thematic, graphic and photographic… –  than of logical and orderly arguments, like a fabric that is interwoven of different kinds and consistencies of threads, combined together by proximity, and similarity or contrast: Tonello has chosen to celebrate its first thirty-five years of history with a tribute.

Tonello presents Water Brush: Jeans for Humans

After the victory at the first ITMA Sustainable Innovation Award for its NoStone® denim finishing technology developed with Levi Strauss & Co., Tonello announced that its Water Brush was named Launch of the Year at last week’s Future Materials Awards.

The Water Brush system perfected by Tonello introduces a revolutionary change to the world of denim garment treatment. The whitening and abrasion process for jeans can now be obtained without using permanganate or any other chemical products and without manual brushing. This protects the safety and health of the operators, while fully respecting the environment and workplace.

Tonello and Levi Strauss & Co. Collaborate on NoStone

Today, we announced the latest advance in denim manufacturing, the NoStone®, a new system developed in collaboration with Levi Strauss & Co. The new process is designed to overcome economic, mechanical and environmental limitations of existing stone-wash processes.

The NoStone® system eliminates the use of pumice stone, replacing it with a stainless-steel abrasive drum, fastened to the washing machine. This drum can create a variety of finishes through flexible abrasion adjustments to create the look and styles varieties consumers love. Due to the mechanical – rather than chemical – nature of the process, the NoStone® effect is the same as that of stone-wash and reduces the carbon footprint created by using pumice stones.

Advanced Technology for Sampling

Tonello stands apart from its main competitors also in terms of sampling technology: its range of washing and dyeing machines has always been outstanding for its completeness and for its ability to faithfully replicate real production processes. All the models make it possible to test and develop recipes and procedures before introducing them on a large scale.

G1 sampling machines are fitted as standard with a B&R control system, a latest-generation microprocessor – which makes it possible to obtain the same, high-quality performance as production machines – as well as a touch screen.

ECOfree: the ozone revolution is here

The result of research by Tonello, ECOfree is a revolutionary ozone washing system that has become the new benchmark for finishing fabrics, for healthier, more beautiful garments. With ECOfree, the ozone is dissolved in water and the indigo is degraded during washing.

ECOfree guarantees reduced consumption of water, energy and chemicals, while giving more pronounced denim effects and better performance than traditional systems, in terms of both the healthiness of the garments and eco-sustainability and worker safety.
