Monvania x Jilin Chemical Fiber
Monvania is a company specialized in the processing of continuous yarns, both artificial and synthetic, for the textile industry. It is entirely manufactured in Italy. It is a success story where a small industrial venture created in 1970 without major ambitions has become one of the most important companies in its sector.
They have an important partner, Jilin Chemical Fiber Group, which is one of the most innovative groups in China. This collaboration has offered an extraordinary development opportunity. Luca Livio, General Manager of Monvania, has agreed to answer questions from Airs de Paris magazine.
Could you introduce your company and its products?
For 50 years, Monvania has been dedicated to enhancing cellulose-based yarns such as viscose, acetate, and cupro, becoming a European leader in continuous filament twisting. In addition to the quality of our processes, we have always recognized the importance of the materials we work with, and we carefully select the most qualified suppliers.
With three operational units and 30,000 productive spindles, we can proudly claim to be a leading producer at the European level.
How did you start working with Jilin Chemical Fiber Group?
Jilin has been a strategic partner for us in supplying viscose filaments for many years. Despite initial market reservations, their success has been consistent, and they now hold the necessary certifications.
What are your thoughts on their product?
Being partners has also meant participating in efforts to promote a viscose production that does not involve the use and cutting down of trees. We have even registered a well-known brand in the European textile industry called ‘Cotton Linter,’ which is based on ecoJilin yarn.
Cotton Linter is a highly sustainable viscose yarn that also offers exceptional qualities in terms of its feel, dyeability, and mechanical performance.
Do you believe sustainable fashion is the future?
There is currently a lot of confusion surrounding the concept of sustainability, and it’s not surprising that this creates a fertile ground for widespread greenwashing activities.
At Monvania, we have always believed that sustainability means responsible technological innovation and a commitment to a supply chain that prioritizes sustainable raw materials and processes.
We focus on delivering actual quality rather than relying solely on certifications. In other words, it’s about substance, not just marketing.
