Jungla®. A fabric that comes from the past to give new life...
The Jungla® Carpet Compasso d'oro in 1956
The Jungla carpet was our successful project in which we tried to combine pictorial art with furniture and furnishing fabrics.
Chromatic games, graphic refinement and careful processing in production.
Collaborating with the painter Giuseppe Ajmone our designers have managed to create a unique carpet, with quality materials and with elements of color that have respected the chromatic sensitivity of the painter.
This effort of ours was recognized with the Compasso d’Oro Award edition of New York in 1956.
From the inspiration of the past comes the new Jungla® sustainable fabric by PugiRG
The idea was to use the peculiarity of the Prato district in regenerating wool fabrics at 360 °, first by recreating high-performance yarns as if they were produced with virgin materials, then with a finishing cycle that confers resistance, softness, breathability, resistance to wear, UV rays, able to pass several fire behavior tests thanks to the intrinsic fireproof characteristic of wool.
To combine the past with the present we have created each color combination inspired directly by the carpets of the original Jungla® line of the 50s
Jungla®, birth of a sustainable fabric produced from recycled woolScopri il processo
It all starts with the collection of noble fabrics and knitted garments from GRS traced and certified supply chain
Recycled materials at km.0
The use of recycled wool materials allows to drastically reduce the use of virgin wool, dyes and energy, in order to create a new carded yarn for the realization of luxurious sustainable fabrics. In Jungla® fabric, 50% of the material is recycled from the high range.
The recycled fabrics are mostly pre-consumer of the Prato textile district but also used fabrics and clothing.
The selection of materials is made by color, composition, and fineness of the fibers.
The materials divided in this way are pressed into bales and sent after to the next processing stage.
The bales of the selected rags then move on to the mechanical fraying and washing phase.
In this way, a new fiber is regenerated and it is ready to be spun again without the addition of dyes and chemicals.
Different shades of recycled wool are weighed in specific percentages and then mixed together with a part of virgin fibers to amalgamate them and reach the inimitable Melange effect of our regenerated items. The result is a new recycled wool fiber.
The regenerated fibers, through carded spinning, take on new life
From the mixing of the bales of the various selected colors, we move on to carding and forming the thread with machines called ‘’ring’ or ‘’selfacting’’.
Spinning binds the fibers through a twist that begins in a mild way to assort, the friction between the fibers given by the torsion is the strength of the yarn that begins to again. From the spindle we pass to the cones joining the yarn with splitcer knots invisible to the eye and not perceptible to the touch.
From the rock to the formation of the warp beam, ready to be put on the loom
The spools are placed on cannon and warped with fully electronic machines able to equalize the tension of the threads and avoid defects on the fabric.
The result is the warp done and ready to be put on a loom for the manufacture of the fabric.
Before starting the frame, the knots come into play annodini
The knotting of warp threads is carried out by our craftsmen with the help of machines that reproduce junction through a knot between the threads already in the loom and the next canvas.
Then the knots are passed through the comb and we are ready for the birth of the fabric through the cross between warp and weft
Weaving is the most romantic phase of the process, threads and wefts meet and give life to a new fabric
The warp threads are crossed to the weft and approached by the comb that closes them in a strong embrace.
In the case of regenerated fabrics, fibers already used continue their life by crossing others, forming a new precious fabric.
The fabric has taken shape and now passes to the care and attention from our mending
With accuracy and precision the knots and any imperfections are arranged manually by very expert hands, our mending.
At the end of the mending phase ,the fabric is perfectly uniform and ready for the finishing phase.
The finishing, the magical touch of the Prato district in the finishing of ‘’Jungla®’’ fabric
The finishing phase of the regenerated fabrics gives the appearance, the hand of the fabric and quality performance thanks to a series of mechanical processes performed by highly experienced and highly specialized staff.
Before leaving us, our fabrics are subjected to rigorous controls to ensure the highest quality
The final check is performed on 100% of the product and concerns the aesthetic, tactile part, color resistance to rubbing. A very important thing is the correspondence of the batch color with the original sample.
We are ready to pack and ship the fabric for the manufacture of luxurious products in the furniture sector.
