Yes we can! Eco-Friendly Eucalyptus rug
Barbara, why did you decide to conceive an eco-friendly rug line like Eucalyptus?
“I was looking for an evergreen rug model, able to fit raw materials high quality needs. For that reason, I immediately opted for a sensorial luxury plain color carpet. Eco-Friendly Eucalyptus monochromatic rug is exactly what I was thinking about. Its focus point? Tencel™ yarn”.
Tencel™ yarn for a sustainable home
Could you tell us what Tencel™ fiber is?
“Tencel™ is a natural yarn, obtained from Eucalyptus wood cellulose regeneration. The process takes place very scrupulously and in harmony with nature. For that reason, Tencel™ comes only from limited and certified plantations. I chose this eco-friendly raw material because it is hypoallergenic, breathable and anti-humidity. The perfect match, especially in this historical moment.
Furthermore, Tencel™ is iridescent, like silk effect. Plain colors change brightness according to light intensity”.

Eco-sustainable furnishing – SITAP Carpet Couture Italia as a case study at the University
What is the impact that sustainability can bring to an SME (Small, Medium Enterprise) like SITAP Carpet Couture Italia? What are choices and efforts that a company must make to align itself with eco-friendly production processes? A student at Piacenza Università del Sacro Cuore, Simona Madjovska, went on deeper that topic in her case study dedicated to eco-sustainability and SMEs. Simona talked about our work in her Business Management degree thesis, discussed in 2021. “A virtuous example, which makes us even more proud of our doing business” – concludes Barbara Trombatore.
