Ecological sustainability, always looking towards the future
Excellence, research and innovation
Herno's production is founded on garments that express the essence of being Italian, on absolute quality and the skills of its employees, but Herno's fundamental philosophy is based on ethics. The down used is sourced from 2 locations that are very different and far apart: Siberia and the Italian valley of Lomellina, whose entire output is used in Herno clothing, in honour of the origins of Claudio Marenzi's mother, Alessandra. But ethics also mean stating openly that the nylon coats are made in Romania, and not in Italy, albeit in sites controlled directly by Herno S.p.A.
All the sites in Lesa are camouflaged into the landscape, with complete sympathy for the surrounding countryside, respecting the harmony of the mountains that surround the town. The nineteenth-century factory, completely restructured thanks to investment in photovoltaic technology, is entirely self-sufficient in terms of energy requirements, which have been gradually reduced by purchasing low energy consumption machinery. In recent years, the continuous renewal of Herno's production systems and services has brought about a series of improvements in terms of safety and the working environment, as well as in technological innovation and modernisation of the factories: this process was intended to develop awareness among the employees that working in compliance with safety procedures improves the working environment and the performance of tasks.
