Sourcing Sustainable materials
Natex is dedicated to contributing to a sustainable change and is ready to engage with you on your sustainable journey.
We are offering several sustainable materials and are continuously adding new sustainable materials.
Certified Recycled Cotton – Recycled Polyester mix
Cotton fabric cutting waste from garment factories are collected and shredded into fibre, that are mixed and spun with recycled polyester. The cutting waste colours available decides the colours offered at the colour card.
This is new yarns and fabrics made from waste materials with no water, chemicals or dye used in the recycling process.
Certified Recycled Polyester
Recycled polyester is made by using recycled PET bottles to spin a new polyester thread. Waste products are turned into garments.
BCI cotton farmer uses less water and less pesticides. The cotton farmers are trained in better management of the crop and trained and audited according to the health and safety measures set by the BCI organization.
Certified Organic cotton
Organic cotton is produced without the use of pesticides, hence making it healthier for the environment and the farmers.
Certified Recycled Cotton
Recycled cotton either comes from pre-consumer cotton (cutting waste from the factories) or from post-consumer (your old t-shirt etc.). It is shredded and spun into a new yarn.
LenzingTM EcoVeroTM viscose and Birla CelluloseTM Livaeco viscose are produced in closed production systems where chemicals and water are reused. The cellulose fibres come from sustainable forests where new a tree is planted when one is cut.
Lyocell is also a cellulose fibre like viscose, that is produced in a closed loop system, re-using the water and a non-toxic compound (MNMO) repeatedly.
