Noble Biomaterials rolls out a range of sustainable, anti-odor fabrics
Noble will offer activewear brands a more natural textile alternative to polyester often used in technical knits. Lenzings’ sustainable fibers offer moisture transfer and comfort and when blended with the anti-odor benefits of Noble’s silver-based technology, provide an optimum textile for active-lifestyle applications that can be washed less frequently and maintain freshness.
“Noble has a rich history in fiber and textile development, and a deep commitment to sustainability,” said Joel Furey, Founder and CCO, Noble Biomaterials. “Our goal is to consistently innovate new textiles and technologies that improve people’s lives every day.”
With a heritage of developing specialized yarns, advanced materials and cutting-edge technologies for consumer, healthcare and military applications, Noble continues to blend its legacy textile knowledge with progressive scientific techniques and manufacturing practices. Its XT2® technologies use the properties of silver to provide long-lasting odor protection. Unlike topical finishes or treatments, the silver is inherent and permanent to the yarn and will not wash out or wear off – lasting the life of the product.
Noble’s commitment to sustainability is firmly grounded in its core values and is reflected in its technologies, facilities, and operations. The company engages in numerous sustainability initiatives, including recovery and recycling of silver, addressing sourcing, production, and product end of-life. In addition to its commitment to the bluesign® system, Noble’s products are OekoTex® certified.
At Texworld, Noble will participate in a panel discussion with Lenzing Fibers®, Samil Spinning Co. & Buhler Quality Yarns regarding performance & preferred fibers. Additionally, Noble will be attending the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market, July 26-29 in Salt Lake City to present its latest textiles and technologies.
