A Culture of Responsibility
At Swisstex, we adhere to a green corporate philosophy, with a full range of earth-friendly production and business practices that reduce waste and save natural resources. We pass this eco-advantage on to our clients, in the knowledge that their fabrics were produced to a higher standard and efficiency.
Partnerships and Certifications
As a proud bluesign® system partner, we ensure our facility meets industry standards, and combine aspects of consumer safety, water, and air emissions, as well as occupational health.
With its practical and solution-orientated approach, the bluesign® standard creates transparency along the whole textile production chain without compromising functionality, quality, or design.
Committed to a green future
We are continuously searching for ways to minimize our environmental footprint. As a result, we consume half the energy in our facility as the typical dyeing facility in the United States - with even greater savings over comparable facilities worldwide - measured in resources consumed per pound of fabric dyed.
Swisstex firmly believes in the recycling, reuse of all material possible. You will not find the use of any carriers for polyester dyeing or any resins or Formaldehydes that would be used for shrinkage control.
