"Due to its extraordinary attributes it has been highly appreciated by brands and end consumers," according to Pranay Sahu, head of sales & marketing for Welspun's spunlace business. "Although it's not a 100% cotton nonwoven, Comfina still offers a 100% natural touch/cotton touch to consumers, and has superior tensile strength and a 20-25% higher bulk,” he adds. "Comfina's 3D embossed version gives a dry feel to consumers, which is a valued attribute considering the 100% cotton touch feel. However, Comfina in its first version was made with 20-25% non-biodegradable fibers. Therefore, Welspun's R&D has developed an advanced, sustainable version of Comfina that offers 100% natural/cotton touch to the consumer that is 100% biodegradable."
