Evrnu has invented fiber technology that transforms old clothing into new, high-quality raw materials. Working with brands, fiber producers, and mills, Evrnu creates and licenses fiber formulations with unique performance and environmental advantages. These engineered fibers are a solution to the greatest threats currently facing the industry: textile waste, resource consumption, and environmental damage. Evrnu uses 98 percent less water than what is required for virgin cotton production, eliminates 80 percent of typical pollutant emissions, and can be regenerated multiple times. Evrnu offers an environment-sparing alternative for the world's highest demand fibers -- cotton, polyester, and rayon -- and is currently being adopted by the world's best brands and retailers.

Currently Operating in 246 Regions
