At the Denim Première Vision in Milan/Italy from October 13-14, 2021, the manufacturer of advanced weaving solutions, Itema SpA, Colzate/Italy exhibited the mechatronic device iSaver that allows to denim weavers to save up 1,000 kg of cotton per loom per year thus avoiding the waste of approx. 20 million l of water. iSaver is already present in the largest denim weaving mills in China, Vietnam, Turkey, Egypt, Italy and South America. 
The denim manufacturing process, which absorbs about 35% of world cotton production and moves a global market that reached 21.8 billion dollars in 2020, has a strong environmental impact. iSaver eliminates the waste selvedge on the fabric reverse side by inserting the weft without the need of additional yarns, thus significantly reducing raw materials and water wastage. The device has been designed and developed by Itemalab, which the Itema Group dedicated to product and process innovation for the whole industrial sector.
