We use kick-ass sustainable materials and we want to talk about it. Because sometimes all different materials and their sustainability can be a little confusing but we did our best to make it more clear for you. Click through our material guide to get all information.
COTTON – ORGANIC OR RECYCLED
Cotton is one of the second most widely used fabric in the world. It’s a natural fibre. We only use organic or recycled cotton. Why exactly? Because we want to be as sustainable as possible. Did you know that organic cotton’s overall toxicity is 93% less than of conventionally grown cotton? Click to learn more about each fabric.
RECYCLED POLYESTER AND POLYAMIDE
We love recycling. Yes, most chemical fibres are based on oil which isn’t sustainable. But the idea of making garbage into new garments is. We already have so much waste on our earth. Why don’t we make it into something new? Another good thing about recycled polyamide and polyester? It is possible to be recycled over and over and over. Therefore it can work wondefully in a circular economy.
Fibers made of flax plants are called linen. We only use organic linen, which is GOTS certified. The certificate guarantees that certified textiles consist of at least 95 percent organic fibers. All chemical substances (dyes, auxiliaries, etc.) used along the entire supply chain (spinning, knitting, weaving, wet finishing, manufacturing and trading) have to fulfil strict environmental criteria. So far, we use organic linen for tops, t-shirts & scarves.
Tencel is a botanic fiber, made by the company Lenzing, which is obtained from wood. You could call it an eco-friendly viscose material. Wood that is used to produce Tencel®, originates from sustainable forestry. Tencel is very environmentally friendly because the production process is a closed loop for the used solvent and water.
