About CIRFS - European Man-Made Fibres Association

CIRFS: European Man-Made Fibres Association is the representative body for the European man-made fibres industry.

Europe is the world’s third largest producer of man-made fibres – an essential raw material for many other industries, ranging from textiles to aerospace, from baby diapers to renewable energy. It is a global leader in quality, innovation and sustainability.

CIRFS was founded in 1950, as the Comité International de la Rayonne et des Fibres Synthétiques (from which the abbreviation CIRFS is derived). It took on its present name in 2009.
