Dimanica NEW

We produce Dinamica® by applying the principles of the circular economy and ensuring high standards throughout the entire production cycle.

Dinamica® is the made-in-Italy microfibre which is produced in part by using recycled polyester (the recycled content varies according to the product line and application) without the use of organic solvents but using a water-based process. Care and respect for the environment and the commitment to the circular economy are the values that have guided our production since 1997 and pave the way towards future innovation.

Intuition, entrepreneurship, continuous investment in research and development are the drivers that over the years have enabled us to approach the most demanding sectors of fashion, furniture and in particular the automotive sector.
