Our Fiber Eco-Review

We have created our own Fiber Eco-Review, using resources such as the MADE-BY Fibres Environmental Benchmark, Textile Exchange Preferred Fiber Market Report and other studies on the environmental impact of each of the fibers. Here, we have only taken the fiber production into consideration, and not the dyeing and finishing.

We have divided fibers in 2 categories according to their environmental impact:
