About Superior Ink

Superior Ink has made conscious decisions as a company to improve on our sustainable efforts every day. We are focused on sustainability, implementing eco-friendly practices, and building a community within the textile industry to become better together for future generations and our industry.  
Sustainability is a major issue in the textile industry. Being sustainable in our industry is about much more than the use of organic cotton and better working conditions. It’s also about finding sustainable ways to consume water and energy, and discard chemicals.

Our mission.

Our mission is to continue pushing the envelope with sustainability, by taking a stance and implementing more sustainable practices. Sustainability is not just an idea for us, it is a way of life and where we’ve found purpose. We choose to be sustainable because we want to better our environment, save the planet, and make our current collapsing industry thrive in a responsible fresh greenway. Our goal is not to compete, but to set an example for others in the textile industry by making sustainable conscious choices.
