What are eco fabrics?

Eco fabrics are sustainable fabrics in the broadest sense of the word. Ecological fabrics are manufactured with a minimal impact on the environment, or with as little as possible use of water and chemicals. Moreover, production takes place in sustainable, closed production systems.

You are probably familiar with terms such as organic cotton, eco textiles and eco cotton. But the terms do not always say something about whether these fabrics are actually biological fabrics.

Why choose ecological fabrics?

Sustainability is a high priority at House of U. We therefore take social responsibility with our range of fabrics. We choose for biological fabrics with minimal impact on people and the environment. This ensures that you buy 'fair' fabrics from us.
