High performance fabric manufacturer Ventile, headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland, reports that its has seen a 600% increase in sales of its collection of Eco fabrics since the beginning of 2020.

The significant increase in sales, which accounted for over 50% of total sales for the textile brand, has seen Ventile achieve its highest ever quarterly sales and indicates a clear surge of interest in sustainably grown fabric from global retail markets and consumers across multiple sectors.

The carefully curated range of fabrics has been designed to achieve the best balance of performance, comfort, and sustainability. Each fabric construction is made using materials and processes that have a minimal impact on the environment.

The collection currently comprises 14 different fabrics made from organic cotton, recycled cotton or fabric blends combining hemp, linen or lyocell.

“Our figures reveal the drive for sustainability and innovation within the fashion sector is stronger than ever,” said Ventile marketing manager Daniel Odermatt. “The change is being seen across the globe and now more than ever, it’s suggesting a step-change for the textile industry, one which we’re incredibly proud to be a part of.

“The increasing awareness of the environmental implications of ‘fast fashion’ cotton production has further fuelled demand for our fabric and we only see this continuing to rise over the coming years.”

Ventile fabrics are used by some of the most prestigious and successful brands in the industry, including Loewe, Jil Sander, Wildling, Hilltrek, Asphalte, BonneGueule and Morehouse.
