From one generation to the next, the Duval family has always been a sustainability pioneer. In the early 1950s, we were the largest North American recycled wool manufacturer. Our unique approach — focused on reusing discarded materials and reducing waste — has inspired the industry. In 2001 we launched the first North American-made eco-friendly fabric. Since then, a hundred million yards of sustainable fabric have been produced in our factories from materials diverted from oceans and landfills. We continue to lead the way with new sustainable textiles inspired by advanced circular economy models — creating value for future generations. We aim to create leave-no-trace textile solutions which will enable design without compromise.
