BACX \?baks\

n. 1: A line of sustainably produced, “next generation” silks made in Italy by Centro Seta. 2: Comprises three main collections—the full-textured “GreenFiber,” derived from silk waste; “Newlife,” spun from post-consumer recycled plastic bottles using mechanical, rather than chemical, means; and an unnamed range of 100 percent traceable, Global Organic Textile Standard-certified silks. 3: An example of innovation without sacrifice, according to Roberto Bacci, managing director at Centro Seta. “The keyword here is ‘integration,'” he told Ecouterre. “The transparent traceability of Bacx begins at the source—the raw materials—and crosses all the production process all the way to the finished product.”
