OUR FABRICS

ORGANIC COTTON

Organic cotton is cotton that is produced and certified to organic agricultural standards. Its production sustains the health of soils, ecosystems, and people by using natural processes rather than artificial inputs. Importantly organic cotton farming does not allow the use of toxic chemicals or GMOs (genetically modified organisms). Instead, it combines tradition, innovation, and science to benefit the shared environment and promote a good quality of life for all involved.



ORGANIC LINEN

Linen is one of the most biodegradable fabrics. Linen fabric is made from the cellulose fibers that grow inside of the stalks of the flax plant.

Linen typically requires fewer pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides than cotton. However, organic linen is completely free from pesticides. The durability of linen means it lasts longer than other materials. 

Growing flax requires less water than cotton. There is very little waste with flax; other parts of the plant, like the seeds, produce linseed oil or flax seeds for consumption. 



TENCEL™

Tencel lyocell fibers are made by the Austrian company Lenzing. These fibers are made of cellulose, the core component of all plants. The source material: wood is perfectly renewable. Trees regrow, feeding on sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide from our atmosphere, creating cellulose. More than 99 percent of the wood used to create Tencel comes from certified sustainable forestry.

Sustainable production of Tencel means the entire value chain is checked in accordance with strict requirements. Sustainable wood and pulp sourcing as well as responsible water stewardship are defined as two prominent focus areas in Lenzing’s sustainability strategy.

Lenzing’s Global Supplier Code of Conduct requires all suppliers to comply with certain standards regarding health, safety, respect for human rights, environmental protection, ethical principles, and management practice



CUPRO

Cupro is biodegradable as well as easily recycled since it’s made from 100% plant-based materials. Cupro is produced in a closed-loop, much like Tencel or Modal, this means that any chemicals used can be extracted afterward and the wastewater easily reused.

Asahi Kasei Corporation produces a large portion of the world’s Cupro and has declared goals of zero-emission and energy conservation. The waste produced during the processes to create Cupro is thoroughly recycled, with the overall rate at nearly 100%. Cupro is made with what would otherwise be unused fibers, so what was formerly considered waste.
