NFC technology applied to buttons and labels, latest generation 3D-effect digital printing,
modified machinery for creating exclusive patterns and decorations.
The Show, will feature several companies that have applied NFC technology to their products in order to communicate with smartphones through a short-range wireless connection.
Another type of innovative technology adopted by several companies involves avant-garde and elaborate applications on clothes using the latest generation, multi-head machinery, or specifically modified machinery and fabrics processed with laser techniques and 3D engraving.
The Maribert company will be exhibiting buttons made of horn, mother-of-pearl, bone and polyester equipped with their own NFC technology that allows them to interact with mobile phones. Information regarding washing instructions, links to social networks, websites, and so on, is loaded onto the product.
DIENPI is another company that uses NFC technology and will be exhibiting labels and tickets with an identification number that allows the customer to trace the skin lots and their origins with his/her mobile phone. The labels are devised with constantly new processing techniques and raw materials: paper, fabric, leather, eco-skins and Jacron. Creations can be simple or more complex with applications such as studs, strass, embroidery and sewn-on stones.
Gianluca, the producer that works with silk, cork and stone fabrics, also uses the same technology and applies NFC to its own electronic labels to inform the customer of every characteristic concerning the production or materials used.
But ORIGIN PASSION AND BELIEFS is not only about NFC. Blueitaly™ will be presenting 3D-effect digital printing, multi-level transparencies, new generation fringes and clothing that combine hi-tech and design solutions. Linea Ellebi Snc will be exhibiting new decorations created by overlapping a variety of materials and patterns made with strings or miniature lace-effect leather using special, newly-designed, multi-head machines.

Bags as works of art finished with gold and silver, buttons that speak to smartphones, artificial fibres that look like silk, embroidery with technological innovations for valuable finishings.
Top Lombardy manufacturing quality from Ricamificio Fontana from Caronno Pertusella (VA), Tessitura Grisotto from Azzate (VA), Maribert from Cernusco Lombardone (LC), Abba Ricami from Legnano (MI), just some of the companies representative of the Lombardy economic framework that have chosen ORIGIN PASSION AND BELIEFS as a privileged showcase to present their new products at the same time as Milano Unica scheduled to take place from 11th to 13th July at Milan's Exhibition Centre in Rho.
The dream of Ricamificio Fontana Snc, which at ORIGIN unites the experience and creativity of three different manufacturing artisans - Valenza goldsmiths, leather workers and embroiderers - is realising a dream by placing the art of jewellery at the service of fashion. The company's crowning jewels, just to keep in theme, are their G-Geo® jewel bags, entirely made by hand with precious skins and the highest quality materials. Authentic works of art enriched by artisan goldsmiths with 925 silver embroidery which, as required, can also be gold or even diamonds, with accessories that can be removed and worn as bona fide necklaces, bracelets or rings.
Tessitura Grisotto will be presenting the pride and joy of its high quality production at Origin: a collection of fabrics in Cupro, an artificial cellulose fibre that is made from short cotton filaments and looks shiny and soft like silk. The fabric is then embellished with embroidery, Jacquard patterns, pleating and prints entirely produced in Italy. To complete the offer, the company will be exhibiting a capsule collection of clothes made with their products.
From horn to bone, from mother-of-pearl to polyester, Maribert's display has no limits in the use of materials, but the real new entry will be buttons with NFC technology which allows them to interact with smartphones. For those who love to be constantly 'connected', it is now possible to load washing instructions, links to social networks or a website, and much, much more, onto the button.
Abba Ricami is synonymous with technological innovation for embroidery with hand or machine-made sequin or bead applications purposefully modified for determined types of processing.
