Filmar is at the forefront of sustainability not only by certifying processes and products

but also by being directly involved in the activities we launch and promote to cultivate and process raw materials.

A sustainable yarn is, in our view:

  • a product made by using raw materials and adopting processes that preserve precious resources, decrease negative impacts and promote regenerative procedures.
  • a product made by people that are respected, nurtured and given the possibility of developing knowledge and skills, through continuous improvement.
  • a product that enhances shared economic growth by guaranteeing that our firm’s success fosters social progress.



We activated projects to support sustainable agriculture methodologies and techniques which increase soil’s productivity and benefit farmers’ communitiesn i Egypt.



Cottonforlife is a CSR project aims to develop a sustainable and transparent cotton supply chain for yarns that are fit for the future.

Cottonforlife is now a brand in the market to get closer to consumers and help sustainable choices.
