Valdese Weavers is committed to being an innovative textile leader, thoughtfully designing and responsibly weaving textile products while striving to minimize our impact on the natural resources we share. We fulfill our client’s textile needs while maintaining the highest standards of sustainability and design through constant innovation.
Valdese Weavers' environmentally-conscious products include Ease Eco Performance Fabrics and InsideOut SEAQUAL INITIATIVE, a line of performance fabrics made from recycled ocean plastic.
As we invest to maintain and modernize our world-class facilities, sustainability and energy efficiency are increasingly important factors, in addition to safety, quality, and innovation. Heating water and air to dye and dry yarns and fabrics requires a lot of energy. Our looms also require significant electricity and compressed air to weave yarns into fabrics. We have installed state-of-the-art dyeing machines, dryers, and looms that operate very efficiently compared to the previous generations of machines. This all directly contributes to lowering greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. As we move forward with setting science-based targets for continued and sustained reductions in GHG emissions, we are evaluating renewable energy and carbon offsets in addition to continued investment in best available equipment for our manufacturing facilities.
