Sustainability

hands holding the world in their hands

We are committed to making environmentally conscious decisions about the products we manufacture, mitigating our impact on the environment. We are devoted to integrating sustainable practices into our design and manufacturing processes as well as our everyday office rituals.

This commitment to sustainable and forward-thinking principles guides us toward collaborating with like-minded partners and organizations. We are enthusiastic about contributing to the well-being of our planet through repurposing, recycling, and upcycling as well as other conservation efforts to make the world better, one fabric at a time.

Consciously Designing To Protect Our Future

Consciously designing for a sustainable future, our domestically made Bella Dura and Swavelle USA Brands are made using upcycled, recycled and natural yarns. What does this mean? Significantly less water and energy usage and no harmful industrial waste.

Our Bella Dura brand utilizes the only fiber on the market, synthetic or natural, that begins as a by-product and ends its life as a 100% fully recyclable product. In addition, the yarns used are solution dyed and significantly reduce water and energy usage as compared to the traditional wet process.

Certified recycled yarns are used in the production of Swavelle USA fabrics. Post-industrial, recycled cotton/polyester yarns are made from apparel waste and processed back into usable fibers. No additional chemicals or dyes are used which means substantially less energy and water is used and no environmental pollution.
