Dare to Compare – Fiber 101

23/06/2010 at 5:38 am 4 comments

In our last post we raised a red flag for people to consider how they care for their sustainable and eco-friendly clothing, which also plays an important role in their overall clothing footprint.   Now we’re exploring the processes that go into manufacturing textiles, as well as the qualities that make them comfortable and long lasting.

Softness and shrink-resistance are important, and this easy-to-read chart aims to illustrate which textiles refrain from using chemical fertilizers and focus on more energy-efficient practices during growing and processing.

There may be exceptions to some of these rules, but we hope you’ll find this a useful resource!

How CRAiLAR® Stacks Up
CRAiLAR® Organic Fibers are everything you love about eco fibers and nothing you don’t. And because they’re made from sustainable, renewable hemp, using an energy-efficient, all-natural, organic process, they’re as green as they can be. Take a look at the chart below to see how CRAiLAR® Organic Fibers stack up against other textile fibers. Get a glimpse as to why they’re about to revolutionize the textile industry.

      Paul.

      We appreciate your enthusiasm! We are currently in the final stages of our commercialization process and at this time all of our production has been earmarked for our 2 primary partners. That being said, we are hoping to have samples available by year end. I have added your contact information to my email contact list and will be sure to contact you when samples become available. Great blog by the way!

      Kindly,
      Marlo
