A Swiss company which launched its first compostable clothing line including bags is looking for ecological (water based) prints which reach the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 (product class I). The prints have to be compatible with the fabric made of bast and cellulosic fibres as well as highly durable. The company is interested in a manufacturing agreement.
This Swiss company has launched its first compostable clothing line including bags two years ago and is now looking for natural based prints.
The existing clothing line has following characteristics:
Grown in Europe
The fabric is made from bast and cellulosic fibres grown and made in Europe.
Short transport routes
Compared to common textiles, the path from fibre to product is a short trip. The various production steps for the fabric take place at a distance of maximum 2’500 kilometers from Zurich.
While flax and hemp cultivation requires almost no pesticides, they also use a few chemicals as possible when further processing bast fibres.
Fabrics and garments have to be long-lasting and sturdy. The Swiss company uses it as workwear in their factory and also at the bar after work. The employees subjected all fabrics and products to strict testing, also taking style into account.
For the compost
The fabric satisfies the toughest factory requirements and yet is 100 % compostable within just a few months.
Background of the company
The company is design driven and a pioneer in its area. Several products of their other product line are exposed in well-known museum collections. Products can be purchased world-wide.
