Food for thought…

Hi, thanks for stopping by…

Often we are torn between products, choosing which are best for the desired look we are trying to achieve, and those that are good for the environment.

Well with Vlieseline products you can have both …

So what is Sustainability?

“Sustainable development is a way for people to use resources without the resources running out. …  sustainability that “meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”

Vlieseline – responding to the need for change


Vlieseline are committed to reducing carbon footprint, offering products made from plastic bottles and other recycled polyester materials. There are many positive reasons for reducing consumption of new and precious raw materials and Vlieseline are able to do this without compromising on the superior quality they are renowned for.

Optimizing environmentally friendly manufacturing processes and transport conditions alongside minimizing use of new raw materials are high priorities and in this way Vlieseline are able to support customers wanting to make their own contribution to sustainability.
