Part of how we work in a thoughtful way (the only way in our book) is to use natural, organic and recycled fabrics. It takes more time and consideration to use sustainable fabrics, but we see this as time well spent. Especially when it helps lower our impact on the planet.
What makes us even more passionate about these fabrics is their super hero properties. Take wool for example; its natural fibres have thermal properties. This means it’s super-soft and cosy by nature. Then there’s our organic cotton. It doesn’t need as much water or harmful chemicals as conventional cotton. Plus, it’s biodegradable so creates less waste going to landfill.
When we first started out, hemp was our go-to fabric. (Thanks to its irresistible, textural finish and the ability to soften after each wear). We’re still head-over-heels with hemp today, though we now also use innovative additions like tencel and modal. Both of these begin life as sustainably grown trees. With a careful regeneration, become the soft and drapey fabrics we know and love. Amazing, right? Read on to discover even more about the truly brilliant fabrics we use.
