Prada launches Re-nylon bags made from recycled ocean waste 25.6.2019
Prada introduced its first backpack made from Pocono nylon in 1984. It was introduced by Muiccia Prada, a few years after she took over the helm of her family business. They were then made using an industrial fabric used to make parachutes. It went against everything that was considered as luxury at that time, but it still became revolutionary due to its unsexiness. In an era where Versace and Gucci was making in-roads in the luxury market with high gloss and power shoulders, Prada"s nylon bag made a statement. "I was searching," Prada told Vogue, "because I hated all the bags that were around. They were so formal, so lady, so traditional, so classic."

Kochi: No negligence, say flyover builders 25.6.2019
Kochi: Stating that there was "no willful negligence" on their part, contractor RDS Project Ltd, which constructed Palarivattom bridge, on Monday said the new construction method used didn"t go as planned and that rectification works are being carried out to satisfaction of IIT experts. "The bridge was designed adopting deck continuity joint system, a new innovative concept. Within three months after it was opened for traffic in October 2016, it was observed the above theory did not function as envisaged, presumably due to additional stress developed in the support zone of girders. Hairline cracks on girders and piers started developing. This was immediately brought to the notice of RBDCK /KITCO and we had requested permission to rectify it at our expense," the company said in a statement. Earlier, a study by an IIT Madras team found major construction deficiencies and the report claimed compromise being done both in quantity and quality of raw- materials used in the flyover ...
