Created exclusively by ECOPEL, KOBA® Faux fur integrates DuPont™ Sorona fibers to offer a soft, versatile, and long-lasting fur alternative for the global fashion industry.
As the apparel industry is increasingly pivoting away from the use of animal-based fur, this partnership will offer a versatile faux fur with attributes for markets such as the luxury fashion market.
KOBA® faux fur is made with up to 100% Sorona® fibers, creating the first commercially available faux furs using bio-based ingredients. Using 100% Sorona® polymer homofilament fiber.
While it’s already established that conventional polyester used to create faux fur has a smaller impact on the environment than animal-based fibers, ECOPEL is willing to reduce the environmental impact of faux fur.
KOBA® faux fur is 37% Plant-based which means
✓ 30% energy reduction
✓ 63% Greenhouse gas emission reduction
✓ And still animal-friendly.
Along with our faux fur made from recycled polyester, KOBA® Faux Fur is our strongest sustainability effort to meet the criterias of the IPCC (International Panel On Climate Change)’s target of a reduction of 45% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions for 2030.
We are creating the transition towards more eco-friendly synthetics.
ECOPEL is a global faux fur textile and apparel manufacturer that straddles from fabric to garments with a vertically integrated supply chain and sales offices servicing markets all around the world.
