Eastman, the maker of sustainably sourced Naia cellulosic yarn, has announced its participation in the 10th annual Copenhagen Fashion Summit, on May 15-16, 2019, at Innovation Forum studio 1, stand 10. Naia is a supporting sponsor of the business event on sustainability in fashion, where the brand will share news about custom fabrics from partner mills.

Naia is also sponsoring the Pitch Stage, where innovators will present sustainable fashion business solutions as part of Copenhagen Fashion Summit’s Innovation Forum.

At the summit, Naia will demonstrate the yarn’s texture versatility with a Naia, MicroModal and elastane blend from partner mill, Wing Yue. It’s a two-tone double face knit with a super-soft hand, according to Farrell. Naia will also feature a luxurious, satin-back crepe-woven fabric made of Naia and viscose by Yilmazipek and a printed, lightweight satin-woven Naia/silk blend from Haiyuan Jiayuan that renders a wholly sustainable fabric with a silk-like hand. The fourth featured fabric is made of 100 per cent Naia by Nishiyama for a lightly crinkled satin weave with shine, Eastman said in a press release.

The summit’s CEO agenda 2019 outlines eight core priorities for fashion leaders: supply chain traceability, combating climate change, sustainable material mix, circular fashion system, efficient use of water, energy, and chemicals, respectful and secure work environments, promotion for better wage system, and the fourth industrial revolution.

Eastman, the creator of Naia, proves its commitment to these transformational priorities via its closed-loop production process in which safe solvents and water are recycled and reused, ensuring a low tree-to-yarn carbon and water footprint. Listed on the Higg Materials Sustainability Index, Naia has a smaller environmental impact than generic modal, triacetate, and viscose. In developing the yarn, Eastman considers the entire life cycle, from responsible sourcing to end-of-life disposal.

Made with wood sourced from sustainably managed pine and eucalyptus plantations and forests, Naia is certified as biodegradable in fresh water, having received the OK biodegradable Water conformity mark from TÜV Austria. Naia recently joined C.L.A.S.S. (Creativity Lifestyle and Sustainable Synergy) to support the fashion industry’s shift toward the circular economy, empowering businesses to be competitive and socially responsible. (GK)
