Tonello presents Core: The Secret Plus

Bringing out all the technical potential of a fabric and giving it added value requires machines and technologies that are capable of conveying emotions. And capable of optimizing the performance of each individual garment. In other words, what is needed is truly innovative technology: Core.

More than 12 years ago we launched onto the market Batik. At that time it was still a rudimentary system to create vintage effects on garments, in a semi-automated way. Many years have passed and many tests and improvements have been done. It’s now time to present you Core, that is not the best version of Batik. It’s even more: a new, fundamental step towards the future of finishing. Actually, an innovative technology that works like magic.

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.
