Manifutura is a platform that offers sustainable yarn and fabrics. We work in three different ways: Never Out of Stock Program (NOos), new production from our previously selected lines and made to order for custom qualities. In the early years we have just focused on knitted fabrics made from organic cotton. Over the years as demand increased, we have added recycled polyester, recycled cotton, Lenzing® Tencel®, modal, hemp, linen, wool and other sustainable materials to our product line.
Being in the sustainable textile industry since 1993, we've taken part in every step of the supply chain.
We've grown cotton, spun yarn, knitted fabric, produced garments, and sold products that came from that very field in our own shop across the globe. We’ve had an amazing 25 years.
In the second quarter century, we have gone on a new adventure...
We have seen that the small-scale textile production is significantly increasing.
There is great demand yet a major lack of sourcing for sustainable raw materials and for designers.
In late 2018 we have established the brand "Manifutura".
Through Manifutura, anyone can supply sustainable raw materials with a few clicks.
Here we are offering stock fabrics, yarn, accessories with no minimums as well as custom production.
With offices in two continents and service in four languages, Manifutura is here to assist you build new projects.
The story of our products beings in our organic field. Grown by GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard), our cotton is free from toxic chemicals that would endanger its surroundings and the farmers’ health. The upcoming processes spinning, ginning, weaving, knitting and sewing also take place according to GOTS guidelines.
We are proud to grow cotton organically and ethically. Yet that doesn’t cover all our operations to conserve mother earth and support our local society.
Our production unit in Izmir, Turkey has solar panels, and these cover up to 40% of our power needs. We have also been planting 1000 trees annually for the last 12 years to increase green areas in our region. On every floor of our building we have boxes to collect recyclable materials such as paper, glass, plastic, batteries to create initiatives for material collection. We have employed refugees to decrease refugee unemployment. In 2019 during the building renovation an in-house library has been established. In 2017 we have started a living wage project with our partners from Scandinavia to give the people in the supply chain some financial and social support to increase their life standards. At the moment we are working on a carbon neutral/carbon minus project, it is to be developed in 2021.
