I’ve always loved developing and creating new textile products, but I found the textile industry’s polluting processes appalling–such as releasing harsh dyes and caustic chemicals into the environment.
I made a commitment to operate my company differently. In 1998, I started Vision Textiles, where we implemented environmentally friendly manufacturing processes.
In 2006, I learned about a groundbreaking technology: manufacturing fabric from recycled plastic bottles. I knew instantly that it was my opportunity to right some of the many wrongs in an industry where environmentally damaging processes were the norm.
