Sustainable textiles and non-wovens

While textile consumption continues to grow, consumers are increasingly aware of the climate impacts of petroleum-based artificial fibers and cotton. Dissolving pulp from Stora Enso enables textiles based on renewable and fully traceable wood from sustainably managed forests. For our fluff pulp, there are interesting end uses in non-wovens for high-quality tabletops and napkins, and pads for food packaging to contain liquids.
Together, we can contribute to a more sustainable textile and non-woven production. Learn more about how our dissolving pulp and fluff pulp are being used in exciting new ways to help shape the fabric of the future.
