The textile industry is the second most polluting in the world after petrol. The temporary consumption of garments, the plastic used in the packaging of products, the consumption of water, and the chemical products used in the manufacturing process, among many other factors, are responsible for the negative impact of the textile sector on the ecosystem.
According to the EPRS (European Parliamentary Research Service), textile production is responsible for approximately 20% of the world’s contamination of drinking water, due to the consumption of water in the dyeing, washing and finishing processes on products. To make a cotton T-shirt, approximately 2,700 liters of fresh water are used, which corresponds to the amount of water that an adult person drinks in two and a half years.
Innovative textiles made of eco-friendly materials
Matsa is committed to the project 2030 Agenda, whose objective is to curb the environmental impact through sustainable water management, energy saving, material recycling, and the reduction of polluting emissions. As a result of this sustainable challenge, EcoMatsahas been born, a range of 100% ecological ribbons and cords, made from fibers of natural origin, recyclable materials, or biodegradable materials.
Sustainable and natural-looking eco-friendly ribbons and cords
“One of the challenges of presenting an ecological range to the market was to be able to design resistant, quality and at the same time elegant products, taking advantage of the colors of natural fibers.”
In the commitment to avoid the use of chemical products, reduce water consumption and reduce the carbon footprint, EcoMatsa designs have not gone through any dyeing process, so the color of these ribbons, cords and braids is the same as the origin of the materials.
Sustainable multifunctional textile accessories
Matsa has not only managed to develop a version of sustainable textile accessories for an infinity of applications, but has also ensured thatthese ecological ribbons and cords provide added valueto the products where they are applied.
EcoMatsa products are already in circulation around the world with different functionalities, such as FSC paper cords for branding labels, recycled polyester elastic ribbons for a line of swimwear, tencel ribbon ties for packaging, paper cords with vinyl acetate compostable navet for bag handles, braided hemp ribbons for furniture and decoration, and a long etcetera.
Natural in appearance, with a vintage lookand a versatile design, the EcoMatsa collection contributes to the creation of a sustainable culture, in which companies should make strategic changes in their production processes to curb the environmental impact and preserve the environment.
Cords and tapes certified by OEKO-TEX, FSC, REACH Regulation, GOTS and GRS
Visibly attractive and with a multitude of possible applications, EcoMatsa articles also have various certificates that verify compliance with the ecological-human requirements of the textile industry.
Matsa has the OEKO-TEX Standard 100, REACH Regulation and FSC ecological certifications, in addition to having the GRS and GOTS certificates from the suppliers for the raw material used in the products of this collection.
The content of the product is as important as its packaging, and that is why Matsa has chosen to present its ecological articles in cardboard reels, a sustainable packaging option.
