Sustainable Fashion

We take on responsibility for people and the environment


In the fashion industry, there is no room for compromise – which is why we are constantly working to optimise our finishing processes, in terms of sustainability too. This is because the most environmentally friendly finishing processes, such as formaldehyde-free and fluorocarbon-free textile finishes, are a focus for AG Cilander as well as our customers, alongside the highest level of finish and product quality.

As number one in functionalising shirt and blouse materials, including with the best non-iron quality, we are global suppliers for the most famous fashion labels, manufacturers of work clothing/corporate wear and other textile producers. End finishing, high-grade finishing and continuity processes in particular are required for the finishes.

Swiss Sustainable Non Iron Finish

Non-iron, crease-resistant and ecologically certified – clothing that meets every requirement

"Clothes make the man", as the saying goes. When most of us go shopping for a new item of clothing, the two most important things we are looking for is that the clothes are stylish and comfortable. But clothing that has been finished by us is a lot more than that: Non-iron, crease-resistant, soft to the touch and beautifully white – this is what we expect of our clothing and what continuously impresses our customers.

The challenge involved in creating our "Swiss sustainable non-iron finish" stemmed not only from the complexity of the processes and the lofty goal of achieving outstanding results, but also from the need to comply with the strict environmental and social standards that we at AG Cilander uphold in our actions and finishing methods. 

Thanks to the use of complex processes, our shirts and blouses still look good as new, even after long-term use. Using our unique moist cross-linking method, developed in-house at AG Cilander, we create (elastic) bridges between the cotton cellulose molecules, which enables the fabric to return to its original shape after being washed.

We continuously strive to optimise our finishing processes in order to offer our customers the best possible quality. Innovative technology and processes enable us to provide fabrics with a crease-resistant finish, guarantee a high degree of whiteness, and work without using formaldehyde.

Our fabrics are verifiably free from harmful substances and certified according to OEKO-TEX® and MADE IN GREEN by OEKO-TEX®.
