Textile companies, with the roots of their businesses in the fields, forests, and deep in the ground, have an important role to play in the transition to a more resilient, regenerative and circular economy. Moving towards a preferred fiber and materials portfolio is part of that transition and is a significant way for textile companies to improve impact. The objective of Textile Exchange’s Fiber and Materials Platform is to help you make this transition.
