Xeros named one of 50 'Global Stars of Sustainable Textiles' by leading industry publication, Apparel Insider
Xeros Technology Group has been identified as a leading company in the field of sustainable textiles according to the industry publication, Apparel Insider.
Xeros features as one of 50 companies in the special publication “Global Stars of Sustainable Textiles” which was produced to capture a picture of an apparel industry in the throes of positive change, driven by an imperative to become more sustainable.
The fashion industry is often identified as one of the most environmentally damaging, with many types of garments consuming vast amounts of water and chemicals whilst producing harmful emissions of greenhouse gasses and microplastics.
More is happening now in textile innovation than at any time in history, largely due to so much money being ploughed into sustainability. The world of fashion and apparel needs these innovative new ideas like never before and needs them to be scaled.
Brett Matthews, Editor of Apparel Insider
Xeros’ innovative technologies help improve the sustainability of the clothes we wear by reducing the amount of water, chemistry and energy used during their manufacture and afterwards when they are laundered at home or in commercial laundries. They also extend their life and reduce harmful emissions including microfibres.
Speaking about the launch of the special publication, Mark Nichols, Xeros Chief Executive, said:
The resources consumed during the lifetime of the garments we wear is unacceptably high given our fast-growing population and rapidly shrinking natural resources. New technologies being developed by enterprises such as the Global Stars, identified by Apparel Insider, are essential to reduce the impact of the clothes we wear on our shared environment.
The scale and speed at which we must adopt these new solutions must accelerate if we are to clothe the world without destroying it.
Mark Nichols, Xeros CEO
Xeros Technologies in the Textiles Industry
This year, Xeros signed an agreement to licence its denim finishing technology with one of India’s leading apparel equipment manufacturers, Ramsons. In denim finishing, Xeros reduces water, energy and chemical use whilst also removing the need to use pumice stone in producing authentic stonewash finishes.
The Company is already licencing its technologies in domestic and commercial laundry and Xeros recently signed its first development agreement for the microfibre filtration technology, XFiltra.
