As per Burt A.

This is the prime reason as to why Naia cellulosic filament yarn is becoming popular among the customers. He added that the vision of the company is to make sustainable fashion accessible to all and for this the entire team is working actively at the Barcelona site. The company wishes to serve its customers across the globe. The company is increasing its capacity to produce Naia filament yarn and might reach 30% by mid 2021 at its Barcelona site.
