Eastman, the maker of sustainably-sourced Naia cellulosic yarn, is set to introduce its new sustainable fabric collection at Première Vision-Paris this September. The product type was first launched at PC 2018, and will celebrate its first anniversary with new innovations.
This year’s international fashion and textile exposition will be going on this September 17–19 in Paris, France. Eco-conscious material brand Naia will be showcasing its new international partnerships, sustainable fiber products for fashion and decor, and latest sustainability certifications.
Naia has been certified as biodegradable in freshwater and soil environments, and is compostable in industrial settings.
Featured fabrics include the all wood-based Naia Bamboo Blend from Burmod in Turkey, the wrinkle-resistant glossy knit from Textivision in Mexico, a shimmering satin woven silk blend from Manifatture Bianchi in Italy, and a mesh knit from Bella Fabrics in the United States, according to an official release.
“Year one for Naia was one of focused energy and exploration with our partners. Inspired designers are now transforming a yarn that originates from nature into luxurious, soft and easy-to-care-for fabrics and fashion,” said Ruth Farrell, global marketing director of textiles for Eastman, in a press release. “Mills are delivering a wider option of Naia fabrics, and those fabrics are more accessible than ever before. It’s an exciting time to be fully delivering on the promise of sustainable textiles.”
This season, Eastman has also partnered with the Milan-based eco-hub C.L.A.S.S on its sustainable fabric collection.
Visitors to this fall’s Première Vision event will find Naia exhibiting its latest textiles in the Smart Creation area, Stand 3S42 in Hall 3. Eastman will showcase more of its brand innovations at Booth 6C55 in the Première Vision Yarns Hall.
