About Us

Industria Textil S.A., was founded more than 43 years ago, with the purpose of providing high quality home textiles to our costumers.

 

Because we believe each one of us has the power to help clean the planet. We’ve developed Ecoyarn, which offers customers an upcycled yarn that saves water, energy, CO2 emissions and toxic chemicals. By using textile waste as a raw material we convert waste that is ready to go into landfill and incineration, into high value upcycled yarns.

 
 

What we do

We convert textile waste into high value upcycled yarns.

What we offer

We offer optimum fiber blends & Ecoyarns to manufacture sustainable textile products

Opportunity

Sustainable products are a growing market in the US as customers become increasingly conscious of buying environmentally friendly products.

Benefits

Our Ecoyarn is soft and absorbent due to the fiber opening process from recycling. No chemicals are used to deliver softness, absorbency and color, unlike other yarns in the market.

U.S Industry Facts
