Transforming together

Our mission is to make sustainable textiles accessible to all. We make Eastman Naia cellulosic fibers with future generations in mind, so the environment is preserved and textiles are made more responsible. We're dedicated to creating a healthier textiles industry through our technologies, fiber innovations, collaborations and sustainable practices.

Our approach for Naia involves implementing sustainable practices to reduce our environmental footprint. We develop innovative fibers that are more eco-friendly, leveraging advanced technologies to solve the global waste crisis. We’re fostering collaborations to drive collective action, and we promote transparency and education to empower others.

Together, these efforts aim to transform the industry by minimizing waste, conserving resources, improving product quality, and improving the environmental and social impacts of textile production.

Molecular recycling

Certified recycled content* in Naia Renew is diverted from landfills and broken down to its basic building blocks via Eastman’s patented molecular recycling technology. This process produces a circular, fully traceable and biodegradable cellulosic fiber with a reduced carbon footprint by ~35% compared to our traditional Naia fiber.
