What are Nonwovens?
Nonwovens are unique, high-tech, engineered fabrics made from fibres and which are used across a wide range of applications and products. Nonwovens are innovative, versatile and indispensable. Modern life would be quite literally impossible without them.
Why an elephant as a logo?
Fibertex’s well-known logo – the elephant – was created in the late 1960s in connection with the launch of secondary backing material to the carpet industry. The product portfolio was launched under the name Elephant Back®, and the elephant logo was used to symbolise product characteristics such as the grey colour, strength, trustworthiness (and wisdom). Since then, this unique logo has become a well-established part of Fibertex’s corporate identity.
