Textile Exchange provides the knowledge and tools this industry needs to make significant improvements in three core areas:
Fiber and Materials, Integrity and Standards, and Supply Network.
FIBER AND MATERIALS
Textile Exchange is an industry leader in environmentally and socially preferred fibers and materials. The industry relies on TE’s expertise when making informed decisions about which fibers and materials to use and in communicating a product’s sustainability attributes to consumers.
INTEGRITY AND STANDARDS
Standards are one of the most powerful tools in the industry. They can guide companies toward the best possible way of doing business, helping to ensure that they are using sustainable and ethical means to produce a product. This includes recognizing and encouraging best practices in farming, animal welfare, ecosystem impact and product processing.
Textile Exchange can help your company make your supply network more transparent so you’re able to find the most sustainable and ethical means to produce a product. As brands begin to align environmentally and socially preferred materials and processes, their entire sustainability strategy is strengthened.
