All About Sustainability exhibitor highlights
Penfabric Sdn Berhad
Penfabric is the world’s first integrated textile company to be awarded the STeP by OEKO-TEX® certificate for Sustainable Textile Production and the Made in Green by OEKO-TEX® product label.
GO GREEN Collection: these recycled fibres are made from discarded PET bottles, which are collected and processed in compliance with Japan’s Containers and Packing Recycling Laws.
Recycled polyester fibre is combined with organic cotton, which can be made into yarn dyed or solid dyed fabrics. These fabrics have the same look, feel and durability of virgin fabrics.

BIOBACK technology fabrics are developed by MITI playing with two main components:
Amni Soul Eco® accelerated biodegradable Nylon yarn*, which starts its degradation process once in landfills and is able to degrade faster than usual synthetic yarns.
Roica™ high performance elastane, which does not release any toxic substances during its degradation process.
The components used for the Bioback technology have been evaluated and rated for their impact on health and the environment. The goal of such production process is to create a circular economy with the lowest impact possible, moreover without any toxic release.
*Tested in outdoor field conditions with microbiological active soil: ASTM D5511 [Standard Test method for Determining Anaerobic Biodegradation of Plastic Materials under High Solids Anaerobic Digestion Conditions].
