Sustainability. Retail brands. On their own, each has strong appeal in the marketplace.
Now you’re talking about something really special. That’s why we’re so proud to introduce Hilana, a new retail brand partner that is committed to sustainability.
The Hilana Story
Hilana uses upcycled and recycled cotton to create beautiful blankets and other products that inspire a sustainable way of living. Founded in Santiago, Chile, this women-owned business is committed to finding new ways to protect the environment, driven by a commitment to sustainability, responsibility and craftsmanship.
Every year, about 100 billion pieces of clothing are produced. About 80 billion are purchased. More than half end up in landfills, taking decades to decompose.
Hilana Upcycled Cotton closes the manufacturing loop in the cleanest way, using textiles made from recycled material through a zero-waste process – with no dyes or chemicals. This allows the brand to make high-quality blankets while minimizing its impact on the environment. In fact, during a three-year span, Hilana upcycled more than five tons of cotton waste and saved over 15 million gallons of water.
Certified B Corporation
On top of making stylish, eco-friendly blankets, Hilana is also a Certified B Corporation, which means it balances purpose and profit, considering its impact on workers, customers, suppliers, community and the environment. In order to become certified, a company must meet high standards of verified performance, accountability and transparency on factors ranging from charitable giving to environmental impact and more.

Not only do they look great, but eco-friendly blankets from Hilana are a gift you can feel good about giving. Take a closer look at the impact in this flyer. Through the end of March, products like these will be part of the humanitarian efforts in the Ukraine.
