    Contribute to a better world

    The need of alternative preferred materials

    Protecting the environment and ensuring the safety and livelihood of communities is pertinent to a thriving sustainable textile industry. All stages of a textile product from raw material to garment provides us with an opportunity to choose better methods and practices for the longevity of the industry.

    As consumers turn to the fashion industry for transparency on the products they purchase, brands, retailers, and manufacturers have began to shift towards a transformational journey in sustainable preferred material for a positive social and environmental impact. Brands in the textile industry set high ambitions to achieve working with 100% preferred materials as soon as possible.


    Traceability system

    We understand the pressure on the market to get access on alternative materials but we also believe that certified sustainable products contribute to strengthening conscious brands who contribute to a better world. That’s why we have been focusing on creating tailor-made certification programs that cover the need of alternative preferred materials. As traceability is a key topic, we created a traceability system (Connected) that will allow you to trace the alternative fibres in your supply chain so you can manage and control your supply chain in an effective and efficient way.
