ELCATEX: A LEADER IN THE LATIN AMERICAN TEXTILE MARKET

About Elcatex

We lead, we care, we make a difference.  Our partner factory in Honduras, Elcatex, is a 500,000 square foot, family-owned, textile mill that specializes in knits like our special low-impact tri-blend. They’re one of the best at basics, and with their help, we can get a lot more sustainable t-shirts in production.

Environmental Impact

Elcatex is a pioneer in environmental sustainability.  They have invested in the renewable energy sector in Honduras and built renewable energy plants to power their facilities; installing large rooftop solar panels on all facilities. In addition, at their biomass plant, King Grass is grown and harvested, and using anaerobic digesters, is combusted to generate electricity and heat. Their textile plant uses innovative dyeing and washing technology to reduce water and chemical usage. 

Employee Impact

Allmade values the advancement of worker conditions above all. Elcatex is involved in the Honduras 2020 Development Plan; building communities that include recreational areas, parks and schools, sports facilities, places of worship and easy access to public transport with a goal to offer textile workers the opportunity to own their own homes in sustainable communities. Elcatex’s Formatex program helps their workers to re-enter formal education and earn their high school diploma, all within their facilities and during working hours, enabling easier access to education.
