Redefining what a nonwoven can be
As the newest cellulosic solution in the nonwovens industry, Vestera is made in the U.S.A. and offers superior softness, absorbency, safety and
sustainability, design flexibility, and patternability. Unlike alternative materials, Vestera delivers versatility to manufacture using different fiber cross sections, deniers, cut lengths, and crimp levels to develop the ideal nonwoven structure. Vestera is also compatible with various processing technologies and can be carded, air laid, or wet laid.
To innovate with Vestera today,
Creating a soft and sustainable future
Vestera is made from
renewable, naturally occurring resources. In fact, the key raw material used to make Vestera is cellulose derived from trees grown in
certified sustainably managed forests and suppliers of Vestera hold internationally recognized forestry certifications.
Forest stewardship means that none of the trees used to make Vestera are from endangered or old growth forests.
At Eastman, we believe a truly sustainable company is one that creates significantly more value in the world than the resources it uses.
