Why we value sustainability for our fabrics
Like in all companies in the Love Home Fabrics group, sustainability has slowly made its way up the ladder into the top five of corporate missions at Ter Molst. Producing more sustainably implies a lower impact on our planet, which benefits you in the long run. Producing more sustainable products helps the company to create fabrics that are even safer and more durable – which, again, benefits you.
As our customer, you are always our number one priority. Safety and comfort come before anything else, and we’re convinced sustainability plays a huge part in both.
Local yarn extrusion at near-by sister company
The Belgian headquarters of the Ter Molst group, also the producer of the Ter Molst fabrics for the Chinese and Pacific market, transferred its extrusion plant to a closer-by location. Already located only 18 kilometres away, the yarn extrusion facility was relocated to one of its sister companies in Ter Molst’s neighbouring town.
Even without producing locally, yarn extrusion is an ecological process. No water is needed to grow a natural fibre nor to dye yarns. The pellets Ter Molst used to create yarns have an inherent colour, which allows us to skip dyeing entirely. Moreover, the yarns Ter Molst creates are antibacterial and cleanable in themselves. The result? No chemical treatments are needed to make this product ready and safe for your home.
Earlier eco-friendly solutions
In 2019, Ter Molst already made a worldwide investment to increase its production of sustainable fabrics: 12 new looms allowed the company to weave 100.000 extra metres of fabric every week. That extra capacity helps Ter Molst, up to today, to nurture its ecological goals.
