Materials Innovation Lab

To identify sustainable raw materials that meet luxury's utmost standards of quality, and enable the Group's brands to integrate these into their collections, Kering founded the Materials Innovation Lab (MIL) in 2013. Located in Northern Italy, the MIL now boasts a comprehensive library of over 2,000 certified fabrics which are ranked against external standards as well as the MIL's own evaluation tool. In addition, a team of in-house experts at the MIL offer support to the Group's brands and their suppliers so as to intergrate these materials into their product offerings.
