Responsible style starts with the right fabric. That's our motto. We're passionate about creating fashionable clothing with a low environmental impact. Not only do these fabrics prevent synthetic fertilizers and farm chemicals from polluting the soil, they look and feel amazing!
WHY IT'S ECO-FRIENDLY: Organic cotton is the same as standard cotton, except it is grown without the use of chemical pesticides, synthetic fertilizers or genetic engineering. Cotton that is grown organically improves soil quality and often uses less water than conventionally-grown cotton. WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT: Organic cotton retains all the qualities you love about traditional cotton; it's soft, breathable and easy to care for. Because it's grown without the use of harmful chemicals, you can feel good about looking great!
WHY IT'S ECO-FRIENDLY: Bamboo is a renewable resource. It grows incredibly fast, up to a foot per day, and doesn't require the use of pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers or a lot of water. WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT: Rayon made from bamboo is strong, naturally wrinkle-resistant and machine washable. It tends to be warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, which makes it an incredibly versatile option that is as easy on your wallet as the environment!
WHY IT'S ECO-FRIENDLY: Modal is considered a bio-based fabric because it is made from the wood pulp of beech trees. WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT: Sometimes referred to as "artificial silk," modal is soft, smooth and drapes well. It also breathes well and is very absorbent.
WHY IT'S ECO-FRIENDLY: Made from the cellulose of wood pulp, Tencel is harvested from tree farms. The fiber is produced via a "closed loop" process, minimizing impact on the environment by utilizing as little energy and water as possible, and recycling its non-toxic solvents throughout the production process. WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT: Tencel shares many of the features of other sustainable fabrics. Soft and absorbent, it resists wrinkles well and is very strong, even when wet. It can be machine washed or dry cleaned, and drapes well.
WHY IT'S ECO-FRIENDLY: Blending natural fibers allows us to pull the best features from our selection of natural fibers and combine them to create clothing that is both soft and sturdy, without compromising our goal of responsibility. WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT: Blending new technologies with natural fibers creates stability for your clothing. Now enjoy more stability, less shrinkage and added softness.
WHY IT'S ECO-FRIENDLY: Hemp is considered a high-yield crop that produces a significant amount of fiber per square foot without exhausting the soil. It requires no pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers and very little water. WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT: Hemp doesn't wear out - it wears in! Valued for its strength and durability, hemp gets softer every time you wash it. Not only is it strong, hemp also holds its shape, preventing garments from stretching out or becoming distorted. It is breathable and naturally mold and mildew resistant, making it a perfect choice for warm, humid climates.
WHY IT'S ECO-FRIENDLY: Ramie is one of the oldest natural plant fibers, having been used as far back as ancient Egypt. It can be harvested up to 3 or 4 times a year with significantly less water needed than other plants like cotton. It is naturally resistant to bacteria, molds and mildew and able to grow healthily without needing pesticides or herbicides. WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT: Ramie fibers are one of the strongest natural fibers - up to 8 times stronger than cotton. It is stain resistant and highly absorbent, which makes it comfortable to wear in warm weather.
WHY IT'S ECO-FRIENDLY: Wool is made from the hair produced by animals such as sheep and goats. It's been used for many years as the basis for many products, from clothes to bedding and other household goods. WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT: The wool from the merino sheep stands out in a crowd. It's built for extremes - breathable in warmer weather, insulating in the cold and still remains lightweight and most of all, soft!
WHY IT'S ECO-FRIENDLY: Recycled polyester uses post-consumer waste like plastic bottles or polyester fabric remnants to create new polyester fabric. Not only are these materials kept out of landfills, but using them also reduces the need for raw materials to manufacture new fibers. WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT: Recycled polyester is just as soft, lightweight and easy to wash as the original!
