Immersed in the beautiful Valdinievole valley, Cinelli Piume e Piumini is a leading presence on the international textile scene thanks to constant research in technology and production. The factors that make the 60-year-old company a point of reference today in the field of feather and down processing are the verticality of its 100% Italian-made production, its sensitivity towards the environment, and the certifications of its products that attest to their quality.
Cinelli Piume e Piumini is one of the few companies that continues to carry out its entire production cycle – from the selection of raw materials to the creation of the finished product – in its plant in Buggiano, Tuscany. This allows for the constant and direct monitoring of quality levels, an enhanced staff experience, and the punctual control of all processing phases, managed on site and not outsourced to third parties.
For many years now, Cinelli Piume e Piumini has practiced concrete commitment to environmental protection by investing at a structural level, through the adoption of innovative technologies and the use of alternative energies that respect nature, the local environment, and people. With a 700-panel photovoltaic system, the company is able to reduce CO2 emissions by 80,000 kg and produce 45% of its yearly energy needs and the replacement of windows and a new heat pump has made the plant even more efficient. Cinelli Piume e Piumini now aims to achieve its own “circular economy” by recovering and regenerating materials to obtain zero-impact recycled products that will soon be patented.
Cinelli Piume e Piumini has always been a name synonymous with quality, professionalism and great attention to the product, with authoritative certifications to protect its production: DOWNPASS and RDS. For years, the company has also been a member EDFA, an international association bringing together the main producers of feather articles in the world. In addition to these certifications, the company has obtained an additional prestigious label: NOMITE®, which certifies the feather and down products suitable for people suffering from allergies to household dust.
