HEMP 

A naturally strong, breathable, comfortable and durable fiber. Hemp is fast becoming a ideal low impact environmental fabric for the future, as it is highly resistant to pests and its dense growth does not require chemicals of any kind. As well as being 100% compostable it regenerates and improves soil health as it grows. Hemp is a highly sustainable fabric providing resistance to UV and the plant itself has many beneficial uses.

ORGANIC COTTON

Rather than using conventional genetic engineering, organic cotton farmers use non-genetically modified crops and abstain from any synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, which are harmful and damaging to both people and the environment.  The alternative production of certified organic cotton benefits; the use of less water and energy to produce a more softer & more breathable fabric, all the while making less impact on Earth resources.

RECYCLED PET

Plastic bottles are a huge problem with over 800 million tons end up in landfill each year. Recycling the PET  (Polyethylene Terephthalate) from plastic bottles into polyester fiber not only reduces landfill, it causes far less air pollution than making new PET. Recycled PET is a strong durable, performance fiber as it wicks always moisture and guarantees easy care.

 

 

TENCEL 

A eco-friendly, soft, cool & absorbent fabric, Tencel is of botanical origin and a natural man made fiber also referred to as Lyocell.  Tencel is extracted from raw wood material, with the pulp dissolved by water and solvent in a closed loop system which enables the solvent to be reused with very little wastage, making the process cleaner for the environment and more economical. Properties of Tencel include; being more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk and cooler than linen.
