      Recently found this Eco Friendly Textile Manufacturer. have requested samples 🙂
      “Amni Soul Eco’s secret is its enhanced polyamide 6.6 formula, developed by the research efforts of the Rhodia-Solvay group, which enables garments to quickly decompose when they are discarded and left in landfills.”

      Perhaps one for the “Find Suppliers” section ? (or maybe it is already there)

      Hi all, I’m also looking for a sustainable fabric options for backpacks and other bags. My current plan is to use X-Pac, which is a great material but I honestly don’t know anything about its sustainability. It’s made by Dimension Polyant but I can’t find any info on X-Pac on their website. It’s strange really.

      Anyway, if you know very tough, lightweight, and waterproof fabrics that might also have i.e. BlueSign certification – please let me know!

      Thanks,
      Joonas

      Hi Joonas
      Regarding materials for backpacks, I snooped around in my network and got some tips:

      European (and Swedish) supplier: https://www.fov.se
      Give them a call so they can guide you further, talk specifically with Mats or Pernilla. Extremely professional and knowledgable people with great materials.

      Taiwan: Many suppliers have bluesign and recycled goods. They have a bit higher MOQ. best tip is Hoyu (Chloe på H325@hoyu.com.tw) They have a lot of canvas structures and och mixed materials like NY/CO or T/C.

      Korea: Dongjin are the first Korean supplier with bluesigned materials. Also have recycled and solution dyed. Contact fred@dong-jin.com. A second company is Pangrim, contact person: tguy@pangrim.com or naomo.pangrim@gmail.com

      China: Leejo are gigantic and they have all sorts of materials. Contact edgar@leejotex.com

      Do you know the outdoor fair ISPO https://www.ispo.com/en/munich? If not, it’s something you could consider visiting in February. There you can meet many suppliers and manufacturers and also see what’s going on in the outdoor industry, attend seminars on sustainability etc and grow your network. We usually go there every year, and this last fair we also had a workshop on How to start a sustainable apparel brand.

      Hope this helps:-D

        Thanks Ana! This was helpful. Qwstion looks amazing too. ISPO is in my mind, but I haven’t committed myself to it yet though.

      Hi everyone,

      I’m wondering if there are any updated recommendations for sustainable sportswear suppliers, manufacturers or designers that you know of (ideally in Europe as I am based in Europe and want to reduce carbon footprint). The product relates to cycling kits for women.

      Thank you,
      Charlotte

      Hi Charlotte,
      The best manufacturer for cycling and specially if you want to create sublimated products, you can check out
      https://www.sportswearoftomorrow.com
      and contact Kevin Van Lancker. They have plants in Romania and Latvia. Plus they have a pretty impressive machinery park and when it comes to sustainability they are pretty pretty advanced. Plus they also specialize in bikewear.😊
