ECO TEXTILES

Fabrics

Eco fabrics = Designer fabrics

For a long time now, eco clothing has overcome its reputation to be made for “tree-huggers” only. Especially the target group of critical consumers who like to eat healthy and dress deliberately are often individualists and have high expectations concerning quality. This is where eco-designer fabrics are used in.

Due to the artful interplay of high-quality natural yarns made of bio-cotton and bio-wool as well as silk, cashmere and linen with exciting fancy yarns, our eco-designer fabrics have risen to trendsetting products.

MATERIALS AND PRODUCTION

Yarns

The precondition for eco-fabrics is the use of natural fiber yarns. Speaking about jeune tricot, nature shows its most beautiful side. Fabrics in incomparably optics and haptics are produced with these yarns. Like in no other field, unique optics of fabrics are created by using additional fancy yarns. Mainly yarns of controlled bio-cultivation respectively bio-livestock farming are used for our eco-fabrics. The yarns are often certified according to GOTS or IVNbest. Depending on the required and possible “Eco-level“.
