Fashion and sustainability are two realms that carry a contradiction in terms. Fashion is a subject which changes quickly – sustainability required permanence. The fashion industry is faced between these two worlds. We combine both worlds with innovation and a promise to our environment.

SUSTAINABLE AND INNOVATIVE FABRICS
ECO FINISH by MAIBOM
- We place huge importance on the spare and sustainable use of water, chemicals and energy.
- The Federal Environmental Foundation promoted the construction of our wastewater treatment plant. The waste water is treated in a membrane technology. The tempered recycling water will be reused in the finishing. The wastewater was reduced by 70%. Now it is avoided in advance.
- 40% of the electricity which is required in the finishing is generated by a CHP plant (cogeneration) with gas engine. The resulting waste heat is provided for dryers. The water used for cooling is heated to 85°C and will be used for washing processes. The environmental impact is annually reduced by 1.000 tons CO².
- Our quality assurance and the corduroy cutting are operated almost exclusively by means of solar energy.
