Why has MADE-BY developed this Benchmark?
By looking at the production process of natural and man-made fibres and what human and environmental impact they have, MADE-BY has ranked 25 fibres into five classifications based on six parameters. This benchmark is updated on an annual basis in order to keep up-to-date with the latest developments and technologies in the market.
13.33% weight each, due to the difficulty in measuring these impacts directly.
Based on these parameters, each fibre was scored and placed into one of five classifications: Class A to Class E. An additional category, ‘Unclassified’, has been added, in which fibres that are not (yet) part of this benchmark are listed due to a lack of available data. Over time, MADE-BY aims to incorporate these fibres into one of the five defined classes as further information becomes available.
