We have been offering this sustainable ribbon range for over twenty years and it continues to represent an economical sustainable alternative. Our acetate is made from wood pulp derived from Pine and Eucalyptus trees which are sustainably sourced.
The wood is processed to extract the cellulose which is then reacted with acetic acid. This produces granules which are then dissolved in acetone and extruded to form a 59% biobased acetate yarn. This yarn is produced in the USA in an almost closed loop system where the waste from the production process is either reused, recycled or offered for sale.
