Since September 2020, we have been certified in the product area of cellulose-based synthetic fibers, which also includes viscose and lyocell/tencel.

We are proud to offer certified recycled yarn, especially cotton and polyester yarn, as part of the Global Recycled Standard (GRS) certification. This is another major step we are taking to make the textile industry more sustainable. Under the Global Recycled Standard, the supply chain is fully traceable from the raw material source to the end product. This means that the certified yarn contains at least 20% recycled fibers, and environmental and social criteria are taken into account.
