Circular Economy Champion

By utilizing cottonseed hulls and cotton linter in our weaving process, Torcetex exemplifies our commitment to the circular economy. We repurpose these agricultural byproducts that would otherwise go to waste, transforming them into luxurious and sustainable materials. Choosing Torcetex means actively participating in the circular economy, reducing waste, and embracing responsible manufacturing practices.

Environmentally Friendly Alternative

Torcetex’s natural straw weaving offers an environmentally friendly alternative to native rattan and other traditional straw materials. By repurposing cottonseed hulls and cotton linter, we help reduce the demand for these resources, protecting natural ecosystems and promoting sustainable sourcing practices. Torcetex makes a positive impact on the environment and support the preservation of native resources.

+ Environmental, Social and Governance Actions


With the expansion of our factory, we installed a cistern capable of capturing rainwater and supplying nearly half of our company with reused/rainwater;

Returnable Packaging

We work with 2 of our main suppliers with returnable packaging, thus reducing waste/generation of packaging;


Paper, cardboard, plastics, iron/steel, etc.
Use of dumpsters and collection points scattered throughout the company for employees to properly dispose of materials. In the case of paper, cardboard, plastics, and iron/steel, they are sold to a recycling company and included in the employees' annual profit-sharing.

Proper Disposal

All contaminated material throughout the manufacturing process is segregated and properly disposed of through a contracted and approved company. We also have a CADRI for the correct disposal not only of contaminated materials but also for batteries, lamps, batteries, etc.

Social and Educational Issues

We are engaged in social and educational issues, supporting projects and institutions such as: Apae, Vollac, and Childcare Center Casa da Criança, as well as constantly supporting award-winning student projects, even internationally.

Continuous Improvement

Constant training of employees, mission, vision, values, as well as the application of compliance and internal code of conduct.
