We work with 100% natural fibres in our clothing.
Not only are the fibres natural, they must also have been farmed or produced in a responsible and environmentally friendly way. Each fabric we choose must adhere to our standards by meeting at least one of the below criteria.
We have had the privilege of visiting farmers, researchers and activists in India who are passionate about organic farming. It is a topic which is deeply embedded in politics and economics as countries try to keep up with a demand for cotton driven by over consumption.
Conventionally farmed cotton requires highly toxic chemicals that majorly threaten the biodiversity of the soil and the health of the farming communities. We know that there are more sustainable fibres than cotton, however we want to add to the demand of organic cotton to further the support farmers need to convert to organic farming practices.
Using natural fibres not only results in garments that are breathable and comfortable against the skin, but they are also biodegradable and recyclable.
