BENEFITS OF NAIA
Over 300 million trees are cut down every year to make clothes and 30% of cellulosic fibers (acetate, rayon and viscose to name a few) used in fashion comes from protected ancient and endangered forests. If placed end-to-end those trees would circle the Earth seven times. In order to treasure and protect the natural environments we depend on, Sans Faff has sourced forest friendly fabrics made from Eastman Naia™ cellulosic fibers for our signature tailoring.
SUSTAINABLY SOURCED WOOD PULP
With full transparency from tree to fiber, Naia™ is responsibly sourced from sustainably managed pine and eucalyptus forests and plantations to ensure no deforestation of ancient and endangered forests.
SAFE AND ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND CHEMICAL USE
Naia™ cellulosic fiber is produced in a safe, closed-loop process where solvents are recycled back into the system for reuse. Naia™ is OEKO-TEX®100 Product Class I certified and is made with no hazardous chemicals listed on the ZDHC Manufacturing Restricted Substances List.
A LOW-IMPACT MANUFACTURING PROCESS
Naia™ has an optimized, low-impact manufacturing process with a low tree-to-fiber carbon and water footprint. Naia™ has a third-party reviewed life cycle assessment compliant with ISO 14044 and is ranked on the Higg Materials Sustainability Index.
BIODEGRADABLE AND COMPOSTABLE
Naia™ and Naia™ Renew fibers have received the ‘OK biodegradable’ and ‘OK compost’ conformity marks from TÜV AUSTRIA, certifying that the Eastman Naia™ portfolio of sustainable fibers is biodegradable and compostable.
THE NAIA PRODUCTION PROCESS
From tree to yarn, the production process for Naia™ is designed to ensure the lowest possible environmental impact. With an extremely low-water footprint, Naia™ is created using only sustainably sourced wood and safe solvents, which are recycled and reused.
