Anvil Partners with Technosport

 New York headquartered Anvil Knitwear Inc., and Canadian company Technosport have partnered to offer Anvil's Eco Collection in Canada. Technosport will offer two of Anvil's eco-friendly product lines, AnvilOrganic and AnvilSustainable.

AnvilSustainable products are made from post-consumer P.E.T. polyester and combed ring-spun transitional cotton (or cotton in conversion).
