Eastman, maker of sustainably sourced Naia™ cellulosic fiber, recently launched its Naia™ fiber in the sweaters/knitwear category. Naia™ fiber is a sustainable choice for sweaters and knitwear, giving designers more choices and versatility to create.
“Now, designers can produce sweaters that meet both quality and consumer sustainability needs, making Naia™ fiber the perfect choice for conscious fashion”, says Carolina Sister Cohn, global segment market manager at Eastman.
Eastman Naia™ cellulosic fiber is a sustainable fiber made from wood pulp. With full traceability from tree to fiber, Naia™ cellulosic fiber is made with the highest safety, social and environmental standards. Eastman’s closed-loop production process allows recycling and safe reuse of solvents and water, resulting in fibers that have a low environmental impact.
Naia™ allows for the creation of sweaters that are comfortable, extremely soft, smooth, breathable and—depending on the blend— feel lightweight to provide longer-lasting comfort.
