More sustainability in womenswear with Naia
Eastman’s Naia Cellulosic Yarn launched into Womenswear at Première Vision
This September at the Première Vision show in France, Eastman launched Naia, a versatile cellulosic yarn, into the womenswear market. Naia, made from sustainably sourced wood pulp, creates comfortable and luxurious fabrics. The inherent qualities of the yarn mean that any fabric made with Naia will have superior breathability and moisture management.
Garments made from Naia are easy to care for, can be laundered at home, and have excellent wrinkle recovery and pilling resistance, all without compromising its luster and silky hand.
Naia is made from fully traceable and sustainably sourced wood pulp; Eastman holds FSC and PEFC Chain of Custody certification. The cellulosic yarn is produced in a safe, closed-loop process where solvents are recycled back into the system for reuse. In addition, Naia has an optimized, low-impact manufacturing process with a low tree-to-yarn carbon and water footprint. Naia has a third party reviewed Life Cycle Assessment compliant with ISO 14044 and is listed on the HIGG Materials Sustainability Index.
With Naia, Eastman demonstrates how sustainability can be an integral part of clothes that not only feel good but look good too.
