Mundotêxtil launches smart cotton towel with Ecotec

Portuguese home textiles manufacturer Mundotêxtil, together with the Italian spinner Marchi & Fildi’s smart cotton yarn Ecotec, have launched a responsibly made cotton towel innovation that saves water use, energy and CO2 emissions at the Heimtextil international trade fair for home and contract textiles, which concluded in Frankfurt this week.

Established in 1975, MundoTêxtil is a leading towel manufacturer in Europe and is present in all five continents, with exports to more than 40 countries. The company is renowned for design, innovation, quality and a focused customer development programme, meeting its stakeholder needs through a dedicated sustainability and socially responsible product supply chain.

The company boasts many certifications, such as RDI certification (4457:2007), ISO 9001:2008 and Oeko-Tex class 1. Also, a strong investment policy has enabled improvements in the levels of water use, lowering energy consumption, treating effluent and controlling waste disposal.

The new strategic choice to develop a more responsible towel with Ecotec Smart Cotton by Marchi & Fildi is part of the company’s commitment to enhancing its eco footprint and sustainability quotient for products and processes throughout its supply chain.
