About Us

We provide an platform for the natural fibers stakeholder community,
producing over 30 million tons of fibres per annum, with a value of $50B.

Our History

The General Assembly of the United Nations declared 2009 to be the International Year of Natural Fibres (IYNF) in recognition of the benefits of natural fibre industries to the world economy, the environment, consumers and to producers around the world. At the conclusion of the IYNF, representatives of 15 natural fibre organizations formed the DNFI to continue this work.

Our Vision

Changing times means changing how we work, how we use materials and how we design processes. As DNFI we encourage innovation at all levels to help the natural fibre community delivering the benefits to everyone along the way. Starting with the growing of the fibres, through the processing, right to the customer and beyond.
