The ever increasing market demand for green products has prompted Ripa to invest time, energy and financial resources in the development of a range of Intimates, Beachwear and Athleisure fabrics, which will be presented at MarediModa (November 6-8 at Palais Des Festivals in Cannes) for the first time. It is a real collection that has required a long and scrupulous design and development activity by being dedicated to all those brands that intend to address the theme of sustainability seriously and consistently.
MAGLIFICIO RIPA, one among the first textile companies in entering the DETOX program by Greenpeace, is today a green hub in the fight against harmful chemicals. It is a virtuous path along which the weaving mill at Spino d’Adda has invested resources, passion and dedication with the purpose of best facing the challenge of the century: offering their customers a cutting-edge product with a green soul.
The Splash Collection by Maglificio Ripa for Summer 2020 is split into five major themes which fully reflect the vast array of style scenarios they all share in common, running from the leitmotif of tradition, to an exclusivity that is purely Italian.
The collection is shiny, transparent, with fancy slub yarns three-dimensional, and with micro jacquard details and references to lace. The Skin Collection by Maglificio Ripa for Winter 2019 is sensual and refined, formfitting and informal, yet bashful and daring all at the same time.
Crystal is Ripa’s stunning new fabric range made from Diamond and Black Diamond yarns of Sensil® Nylon 6.6. Perfect for intimate apparel, beachwear, activewear, and fashion apparel, the twenty shimmering fabrics in Crystal’s capsule collection range from lighter weights ideal for underwear all the way to double-face constructions for clothing. Crystal’s unique beauty lies in the metal-free mineral brilliance of the fabrics, a natural reflection that absorbs and reflects light for a unique and magical effect thanks to the shiny polymer and triangular cross-section of the thread strands developed by NILIT. This beautiful collection of fabrics uses ROICA™ Color Perfect family, advanced color technology system that delivers a perfect color match finish with an undetectable matte look for the stretch materials. The Nilit’s Sensil(r) premium Nylon 6.6 elevates every product is part of it, enabling quality apparel brands to build trusted, lasting relationships with consumers.

The Ripa Intimates Collection follows the same logic of impeccable design and extraordinary quality as the Splash Swim Fabric Collection. Tradition goes hand in in hand with Innovation not only in Design and Color but even more importantly in the use of technologically innovative fibers, knitted on an impressive range of very fine-gauge machines for which Ripa is famous.
Andrea Visani is the new person in charge for the sales department at Maglificio Ripa and along with Paolo Fila he will report to the sole administrator Luca Bianco.
He graduated in Philosophy of Sciences at the Milan University (Università Statale) and has been in the textile sector since 1996: initially at Eurostick and in 2010 he finally reached the high-end fabrics at Ratti SpA, Setamarina Division, where he held the position of Sales Manager.
The 2019 Summer Splash collection by Ripa is a concentrate of pure style and creativity: a new approach to the beachwear universe ranging from “classics with an unprecedented twist” up to extremely innovative suggestions based on quite cutting-edge and nearly unattainable recipes. Much room is granted both to stripes, a house specialty available in beautiful oranges, purples, blues and khakis, and fancy jacquards in their unique design and exclusive hand. Noteworthy is the development of the crochet knit, this year designed for both micro and macro stripes. Although the dominant color is orange in the various degrees of intensity, equally important is white in its features of lightness and modernity throughout the collection: a key role to both enlighten fabrics with a cocooning-like aura and interact with the most audacious colors.
