KINGSPORT, Tenn. — November 19, 2020 — Global fashion retailer H&M is first to market with its new Conscious Exclusive Autumn/Winter 2020 collection made with Eastman Naia™ Renew cellulosic fiber. Naia Renew is a cellulosic yarn made from 60-percent certified wood fibers and 40-percent recycled waste plastics such as carpet fibers and plastic packaging.* This is the first time H&M has used Naia Renew in a collection. The Conscious Exclusive A/W20 will be available at hm.com on December 1.
“We’re delighted to collaborate with H&M as we work toward building a circular fashion economy,” said Ruth Farrell, global marketing director of textiles for Eastman. “Together, Naia and H&M are working toward a vision to make sustainable fashion accessible for all, playing active roles in conserving resources, fostering innovation and demonstrating a passion for sustainability that will help transform our industry.”
Naia Renew is fully traceable with certified biodegradability that captures the value of hard-to-recycle materials otherwise destined for landfills. It can be produced at scale to deliver sustainability without compromise to the fashion world. Available as both a filament yarn and a staple fiber, Naia Renew offers clear advantages over other materials — delivering comfort, ease of care, and a luxurious feel.
