OUR FABRICS AND YARNS
The fabrics we work with align with our ethos to be sustainable. Our focus is on using trims that do not contain elastane or other non biodegradable materials We are constantly working to develop eco-friendly materials that are good for you while reducing environmental impact (REI).
Our decision to use 100% hemp for our first collection aligns with our ethos to be sustainable. Hemp requires up to 90% less water to grow and is the most comfortable natural biodegradable fibre. Along with being environmentally friendly, hemp is also inherently antimicrobial. Given the durability of it's fibers, a hemp garment has a longer lifespan than other fabrics, helping minimize overall long-term waste.
COTTON MUSLIN VOILE
Some of our pieces are lined with an ultra soft breathable cotton fabric. This fabric is dyed using skin-safe and eco-friendly dyes.
Our Denim Reistored is made entirely from TENCEL™️ - a brand of lyocell and modal fibers derived from sustainable wood sources. It recovers and recycles more than 99% of the solvents used in the process and consumes way less water & energy. This collection is way more comfortable and eco-friendly.
Bemberg™️ is sustainable regenerated cellulose fiber made from cotton linter which is the short, downy fiber that enfolds the cotton seed. All the impurities are removed from this tiny material, transforming it into a thread. The resulting fabric is incredibly soft, lightweight, breathable and versatile. We’ve chosen this silky yarn for our Sunkissed & Starlit collection as it's perfect for layering and for warmer weather.
Organic cotton gives you all the lightness and breathability of regular cotton but without the environmental cost. Organic cotton is grown without the use of pesticides and chemical fertilisers ensuring it supports the local environment and communities. Organic cotton uses 62% less energy to grow and releases up to 46% less CO2. Regular cotton is often treated with harsh chemicals during processing which can irritate your skin, making organic cotton the safer, more sustainable choice.
Linen is a beautiful biodegradable fabric that has been used in fashion for centuries owing to how lightweight and cooling it is. It also looks timeless and chic. We've chosen to use linen made from the flax plant which takes about 100 days to grow and needs fertilisers, pesticides and almost no water! Compared to a cotton t-shirt which requires upto 2,700L of water, an linen shirt needs next to 0.
Our garments are free from harmful chemicals and dyes and are safe for your skin. For dyeing Hemp, we use Oekotex® and bluesign® approved eco-friendly AVITERA® SE dyes that are free from harsh chemicals such as para-chloroaniline (PCA). AVITERA® SE low carbon footprint dyes use significantly less water and energy during the dying process thereby helping reduce environmental impact (REI).
To keep the use of non-biodegradable materials in our production process to a minimum, we have replaced traditional synthetic buttons with natural wooden buttons that can be recycled back into the environment. There is no use of elastic or virgin polyester in our garments. In most of our outfits, our sewing thread is 100% biodegradable cotton. In most of our outfits, we use a 100% biodegradable cotton sewing thread.
We are proud to be a part of the sustainable packaging revolution and not the plastic problem. Our reusable garment bags are part of our goal to reduce environmental impact (REI). We have also incorporated the use of home compostable garment bags.
