In 2020, we decided to accelerate the transition to more responsible and certified raw materials, focusing mostly on the use of natural fibres, man-made fibres and recycled synthetic fibres. These fibres now represent 90% of the products produced for our customers.

Natural fibres are those that come directly from nature. They are classified according to their origin: animal, vegetable and mineral.
Produced using the principles of organic agriculture. It is grown without chemical products, so it conserves soil biodiversity, reduces water consumption and contributes to the well-being of rural communities. The textile certification that guarantees cotton’s organic status is GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard).
Made from recycled textile waste, the production process has less environmental impact. Its use replaces the use of virgin raw materials and consequently reduces water and energy consumption. The standards that establish the requirements for the certification of recycled materials are the GRS (Global Recycle Standard) and RCS (Recycled Claim Standard).
Cotton that is produced using sustainable cultivation and harvesting practices. The Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) promotes the best environmental and social benefits of conventional cotton farming practices.
It is a resistant, ecological and biodegradable fibre. Its cultivation is considered a sustainable agricultural practice because it does not require the intensive use of water or pesticides.
The plant that produces hemp requires less water in its cultivation and grows quickly without the need for pesticides. It is a totally biodegradable fibre, and its harvesting process enriches the soil with minerals.
Man-made fibres are made from natural polymers. The vast majority of the precursor polymer for these fibres is cellulose, which is obtained from wood or tree leaves.
Lyocell® is an environmentally friendly semi-synthetic fibre. It is obtained from wood pulp sourced from certified and sustainably managed forests. The conversion of cellulose into fibre uses a closed-loop process. Lyocell fibres are known for their natural comfort and environmentally responsible production process. They offer quality, performance and versatility.
Modal Fibre offers natural softness and comfort, efficient moisture management and breathability, good colour fastness and compliance with safety standards.
This is made by blending recycled cotton, wood pulp, waste clothing and Tencel lyocell®. It combines the benefits of recycling and closed-loop technology.
Synthetic fibres are made using products from the petrochemical industry, such as petroleum. Within these, recycled fibres represent a sustainable alternative, allowing less waste accumulation and dependence on virgin raw materials.
Is produced from pre- and post-consumer polyester waste, resulting in less use of virgin resources, reduced energy consumption and CO2 emissions. The main certification for this fibre is GRS.
