"We go further to work with the environment—not against it—to create eco-friendly products with outstanding performance"
We offer a wide range of sustainable materials that provide environmental, social and economic benefits throughout an entire product's lifecycle—from the extraction of raw materials to final disposal.
Customers aiming to maximize the protection of consumer health and the environment can consider the following sustainable materials:
Bamboo is hypoallergenic, absorbent, fast drying and naturally anti-bacterial, while both extremely durable and soft as silk at half the price. It grows quickly at 10 times the yield of cotton with less input of water pesticides and fertilizers.
Organic cotton is softer, more breathable and higher quality than non-organic cotton. It is grown GMO-free without the use of chlorine bleach, synthetic dyes or any synthetic agricultural chemicals.
Recycled polyester offers excellent quality for less energy than required by virgin polyester. The recycled material preserves the virgin oil needed to manufacture new fibers and is without limitation in its application.
Soy-based inks are able to produce brighter, more vibrant colors using less ink and fertilizers than petroleum-based inks, making them a more cost-effective ink solution. Soy inks can also be removed more easily for recycling.
Water-based Inks do not contain PVC or phthalates and do not require solvents for cleaning equipment. They contain fewer oil-based chemicals and are less harmful, making them safe for use with underwear, swimwear and baby clothes.
