Sewing with sustainable fabrics from KATTUN

Sewing your own clothes makes sense in itself - not only are the results not produced under questionable conditions anywhere in the world, they are also sewn with love and craftsmanship. Homemade clothing is usually loved "dearly", worn for longer and sometimes repaired. Sustainable fabrics and accessories not only protect the environment in the country of production - they are also easier to dispose of or recycle.

As a GOTS-certified company, we are subject to strict environmental and ethical guidelines. The GOTS standard is the world's leading standard for the processing of textiles made from organically produced natural fibres. Not only do strict environmental guidelines apply, but also strict social criteria along the entire production and supply chain. We are proud to be able to offer our customers a wide range of sustainable fabrics and to be part of the certified supply chain.

Sustainable fabrics made from wood fibres

Fabrics made from LENZING™ Tencel® Lyocell fibres

Tencel® Lyocell fibres or Modal fibres, a brand name of the company Lenzing AG, are mainly obtained from sustainably grown wood. The yield of fibres per area is 10 times higher for natural fibres from wood than for cotton; the fabric for one T-shirt made from cotton or 10 T-shirts made from Tencel® can be grown on 6m² of land. However, the raw material for Tencel® is not only obtained from certified wood, but cotton scraps from the clothing industry are also used to produce the cellulose. The wood and fabric scraps are first processed into cellulose in a patented and award-winning process and then spun into Tencel® Lyocell fibres. Only biodegradable solvents are used in a closed cycle, 99% of which are recycled. This means that fabrics made from Tencel® Lyocell fibres are probably the most sustainable woven or knitted fabrics ever. Due to its sustainability, the production process was honoured with the "European Award for the Environment".

Sustainable fabrics made from LENZING™ ECOVERO™ fibres

Lenzing Ecovero is made from cellulose sourced from sustainably managed forests. Fibre production takes place in a closed loop, which enables water and chemicals to be recycled efficiently and reduces the environmental impact. Lenzing Ecovero is certified with the EU Ecolabel, which stands for environmentally friendly products. It has also received the "Grüner Knopf" certificate, which is awarded in Germany and fulfils strict social and ecological criteria. The manufacturing process requires 50% less water and emits 50% less CO² compared to the production of conventional viscose fibres. This makes Lenzing EcoVero® viscose fibres one of the most ecological fibres for the production of sustainable fabrics.
