From its debut to the most recent victories, Nalini has been able to renew itself but always hanging to its history and to its original and authentic passion.
It is authentic because it is real and concrete, moreover supported by an unique production structure, a totally vertical enterprise which is able to supervise the entire production cycle. It is Authentic because it is able to produce essential, real original cycle garments, chosen by the most demanding athletes and cyclists. Finally, it is authentic because the product is made by passionate, dedicated workers who are able to combine the technology and constant improvement to the warm and timeless human touch.
The Planet & Nalini
Part of what drives us (and most cyclist we know) is the importance of being responsible guardians to our world. Our two-wheel journey connects us to our surroundings, raw and unfiltered, while having virtually no impact on the environment. Finding ways to minimize our tread-marks in our sport is about knowing where our equipment and apparel comes from and how it contributes to waste, energy, labor and the community from which they are made.
There is no substitution for quality, and Nalini believes developing innovative fabrics and precision in design is just as important as environmentally sound practices. Nalini has been awarded the prestigious Sicurezza Certificata by Oeko-Tex, which measures the impact of production processes on people and environment, changes in washing and cleaning the textile and the affect of chemical ingredients in the fabric on human health and well-being.
Attention to detail is critical for Nalini and knowing where our products come from gives customers a clear conscience. None of Nalini’s products are sewn in sweatshops or mass-produced; all garments are handmade in Northern Italy, under strict Italian and EU environmental and labor laws. Ensuring our cycling garments are high quality, non-toxic and safe for you and the environment ensures cycling will continue to be a low-impact sport.
