FSC (Forest Stewardship Council)
The FSC certification ensures that the wood used to produce these fabrics comes from forests that are managed in a way that preserves biological diversity and benefits the lives of local people and workers, while also ensuring it sustains economic viability. The FSC's "chain of custody" certification also verifies that FSC-certified material has been identified and separated from non-certified and non-controlled material as it makes its way along the supply chain, from the forest to the market. When a fabric product carries the FSC label, that means the wood pulp used to produce the fabric was sourced from a forest that was managed responsibly according to FSC standards. This can be an important factor for consumers and manufacturers who are concerned about the environmental and social impacts of their products.
