FABRICS

Why we moved from bamboo to Tencel Lyocell

Tencel is derived from sustainably sourced wood pulp (often eucalyptus or beechwood trees) and boasts a closed-loop production process. It is manufactured using a highly efficient solvent spinning method, which minimizes waste and water usage. It also operates in a closed loop system. This means that 99% of the solvents and water that are used in the process are recycled back into the system. It’s highly regulated and patented and the reason it’s more environmentally friendly than a fabric like bamboo rayon, the production of which is unfortunately not regulated or certified and frequently uses many harsh chemicals in it’s manufacturing process, causing potential issues for the workers creating the fabric, as well as the environment.

 Why we use Organic Cotton

Organic cotton is cultivated without the use of synthetic pesticides or harmful chemicals, ensuring the fabric is free from toxic residues. Unlike conventional cotton, which relies heavily on chemicals, organic cotton promotes a healthier ecosystem and a safer environment for farmers and consumers alike. Organic cotton also uses less water than conventional cotton, and the absence of chemicals enhances the fabric's strength, resulting in longer-lasting garments that retain their integrity over time.
