Sister company to Redwood Classics Apparel featured in new video profile
TORONTO, ONTARIO [May 18, 2022]
Social Textiles, Canada’s leader in sustainable all-over-print-technology, has been selected by GoDaddy Canada and the Toronto Raptors to be celebrated during Asian Heritage Month 2022.
Founded by Kathy Cheng in 2019, Social Textiles is Canada’s first and only roll-to-roll fabric printer that uses sustainable all-over-print, an eco-friendly technology that uses biodegradable ink, is California Prop65 compliant, is OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified, and holds the GOTS standard.
“We are honoured to be featured by GoDaddy Canada and the Raptors,” says Cheng. “Not only does this video celebrate our Asian heritage, but it brings sustainability and supplier diversity into the conversation - two topics that we are extremely passionate about.”
Social Textiles is the sister company of award-winning apparel producer Redwood Classics Apparel, also founded by Cheng. “Through Social Textiles, we are able to offer to our clients a new way to produce premium, designer-quality products without high minimums,” says Cheng. “This allows us to reduce waste, both in terms of water usage and in fabric, while enabling smaller businesses to have access to this technology since we can print starting as low as one metre - a real gamechanger in our industry.”
The video, produced by GoDaddy Canada, gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the production process and introduces Cheng, Project Lead Paojia Tang, and Raptors Assistant Coach Jamaal Magloire.
