Waking up to the value of bioplastics

PLA (Poly Lactic Acid) bioplastics can be easily spun into fibers for textiles and nonwovens. PLA boasts outstanding drapability, breathability and durability. With a soft and natural feel, PLA can be spun with cotton or silk to produce yarns made from 100% renewable materials. Truly sustainable fabrics!

Whether for fast-moving high street fashion, soft pillow filling,  or skin-friendly disposable cleansing wipes, PLA is an excellent material for fibers and non-wovens.

Not only is the material good for people and profit. It also benefits planet, being 100% biobased with a reduced carbon footprint when compared to oil-based counterparts. Furthermore, for disposable  wipes and facecloths, PLA fibers are softer on the skin than wood-based alternatives.

One of our partners, a major industry player, has woken up to the value of PLA: The company offers a wide range filaments and non-wovens based on PLA, all featuring excellent absorbency and breathability with a soft and natural feel. 

Sustainability advantages of PLA

PLA offers a sustainability win-win to both brandowners and consumers.

  • For brandowners, PLA products are biobased; enabling products and packaging with a reduced carbon footprint.
  • For consumers, the multiple end-of-life options offered by PLA empowers them to reduce their environmental impact.

PLA offers the potential for a closed-loop product lifecycle – especially relevant in the textile industry where the ability to recycle clothing isn’t just a sustainable choice but also a fashionable one.
