The fine art of printing while protecting the environment
For more than 20 years, Agile has been creating personalized printed leather products, from the design to the development, for the most prestigious fashion and interior design brands.
Its strength is the use of innovative techniques and applications, including high-frequency and direct printing, gloss and 3D effects, cambering and relief designs on shoes, bags and apparel.
All this while focusing on environmental protection and consumer health: the 4sustainability® Chemical Management Protocol is implemented in order to monitor compliance with the management requirements of the company's production processes and its supply chain.
The objective is the gradual elimination of toxic and harmful chemicals, in line with the specifications of luxury brands, as well as the ZDHC - Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals approach. Agile guarantees an accurate control of the chemicals used, in accordance with the European and global REACH certifications and the various PRSL of the brands.
The company carries out extensive research into environmentally sustainable materials, including GRS (Global Recycle Standard) certified fabrics and threads, as well as polyurethanes with recycled components.
At Agile, printing is also environmentally friendly thanks to the use of environmentally friendly water-based inks, with fully recyclable cartridges and energy-efficient printers.
Environmentally UL ECOLOGO® certified products are among those that meet the strict criteria related to human health and environmental protection and UL GREENGUARD GOLD stands out for its low indoor emissions.
Major eco-labels include ENERGY STAR®, a superior energy-efficiency ID required for products sold to governments in the U.S., Taiwan, and the European Union, and EPEAT Bronze, a comprehensive environmental certification that identifies the most sustainable electronic components.
