Perundurai, India 91-4294-234367

Kadri Wovens, the bedding division of Sharadha terry products, is taking the MicroCotton brand to a new level with the introduction of MicroCotto Green Earth Bed Linen.

MicroCotton Green Earth Bed Linen evolves from a "life cycle thinking" process which makes the world a better place to live. The sheets are eco-friendly right from the raw material stage to end of its life (in each and every stage of manufacturing, retail, usage and end of life cycle) and at the same time these products exceed customer expectations and delight for a lighter, smoother and a durable product.

The cotton fiber is spun in such a way that less cotton is used to produce the all-cotton towels, making them lighter in weight. The MicroCotton Green Earth sheets weigh up to 30% less than a normal sheet, but boast better softness and more tensile strength, making them more durable.

Instead of the normal fossil fuels used in textiles production, MicroCotton Green Earth bed linen products are manufactured by generating steam from natural waste products.

The line employs Skal-certified "Sustainable" dyes and chemicals. All water used for production is recycled back into the next production run, so there is zero discharge into the environment.

Apart from the conservation of energy and water during the manufacturing, the MicroCotton Green earth sheets substantially conserve about 25% of water, energy, and laundry chemical usage during every wash. MicroCotton Green earth Sheets — a new product range that supports the mission to help protect the Earth for our future generations.
