The PCIAW® (Professional Clothing Industry Association Worldwide) has always been an advocate for sustainability and responsible business, and the association was delighted to present Meryl Fabrics with the Sustainable Business Award at the 2023 PCIAW® Summit, Exhibition & Awards, held at the Alfandega Congress Centre in the iconic city of Porto, Portugal, on the 9th of November 2023.
Meryl Fabrics is a pioneering force in sustainable materials. Their innovative yarns and fabrics are designed for full reusability, offering a cleaner, safer environment for workers and contributing to a circular economy. Minimising water usage and emissions, Meryl Fabrics leads the way in creating a sustainable future for polymer textiles in the professional clothing industry, working with partners from healthcare to garment manufacturers to ensure a closed-loop circular economy.
The Award was presented to the company by Fernanda Dias, Director General of Economic Activities at the Portuguese Ministry of Economy and Maritime Trade, and Nisha Muire, Uniform Program Manager at Air Canada. Unfortunately, Meryl Fabrics was not able to attend the Awards dinner, but the company was honoured nonetheless with a round of applause and a cheer from the attendees, with the award shipped to the company after the event.
The PCIAW® is proud to celebrate and reward the individuals and companies demonstrating innovation and creativity to deliver value in the professional clothing industry through the globally esteemed PCIAW® Industry Awards. The 2023 event was a resounding success for networking and professional development in professional clothing, and the association aims to welcome the network back to London in 2024.
