Montréal-based Doubletex — a woven and nonwoven fabrics manufacturer, and a provider of commission
dyeing and finishing, converting, quilting and other services — has created the Ecoterra
collection of eco-friendly fabrics containing 100-percent certified organic cotton and Greensboro,
N.C.-based Unifi Inc.’s Repreve® recycled polyester.
The collection includes Ecoflex Poplin and Twill — two additions to Doubletex’s Truflex™
line of comfort stretch fabrics — and EcoDrill — a sturdy high-performance twill — all of which
are comprised of a blend of 35-percent organic cotton, 35-percent Repreve recycled polyester, and
30-percent polyester. Also included are EcoTwist, a 100-percent organic cotton dobby; and All in
One, a 100-percent ripstop made with stretch Repreve aio® yarn that has an antimicrobial,
moisture-management and soil-release finish.
Doubletex will debut the Ecoterra fabric collection at Expo Hightex, to be held October 7-8
