The Eastman Innovation Lab, a strategic program that focuses on advancing innovation through design and education, has announced the launch of Naia, an innovative yarn made from a cellulose ester technology for the intimate apparel market, which was presented for the first time at the Interfiliere Paris fair, in France, held from January 21 to 23, 2017.

Made from wood pulp derived exclusively from sustainably managed and certified forests, Eastman Naia cellulosic yarn is a poised, new reflection of a long-standing fibre that enables luxurious, comfortable and easy-to-care-for fabrics and garments.

During the Paris show, attendees visited Whisperings at the Interfilière general forum to see and touch the prototype knit. The installation depicted Gaia, the primal earth goddess, as a reminder of our responsibilities towards dwindling resources.

With the growing demand for materials originating from sustainable sources, the unveiling of Naia from Eastman represents an opportunity for brands and mills to innovate with a fresh yet proven cellulosic material.

Backed by third-party labs and industry standard tests, Naia offers excellent moisture management, good durability in at-home laundering, and excellent dry rates, twice as fast as nylon, proving that Naia goes beyond surface-level luster and silkiness.

Naia has been used in a range of textile applications including different constructions of knit and woven fabrics in women’s and men’s casual and formal wear, ceremonial attire (think graduation and choir robes), accessories, ribbons, and, even industrial, and medical tapes.

Eastman has also partnered with O’More College of Design’s fashion students to design and construct evening gowns with Naia. (GK)
