Concept

Christian Fischbacher’s Benu collection is enhanced by the Benu YARN fabrics: lucent and soft earth tones made out of 100% recycled cotton and polyester mix. Thereby textile waste and also consumption of precious raw materials, such as cotton, water and energy, are dramatically reduced. Its manufacturing fulfills human ecological criteria settled by international recognized testing institutes.

Advantages of one tone of recycled yarn:
- Saves 4,817.6 liters of water
- Saves 16.5 kg of chemical products
- Avoids the emission of 233.8 kg of CO2
- Avoids the dumping of 3,574.4 liters of contaminated wastewater
- Saves 512.5 kW/h of energy
- Recycles textile garments or clips that would be treated as waste
- Saves a 1,990 sqm surface area of cotton-growing land
