Jimtex Yarns, a division of Martex Fiber Southern Corp., has announced the development of R3 Denim™, a sustainable denim collection, in cooperation with Denim North America (DNA).

ECO2cotton®, a sustainable fiber solution for today’s environmentally conscious manufacturers. ECO2cotton® is manufactured through a process utilizing pre-consumer cut cotton knit waste, which is re-fiberized and spun into yarn at the Jimtex Yarns facility, located in Lincolnton, Ga. Martex Fiber’s ECO2cotton® competes at the highest levels of sustainability, using no chemicals or additives to alter the fiber structure.
