OUR FABRICS 

98% OF OUR FABRICS ARE ORGANIC OR RECYCLED 




ORGANIC COTTON

100% OF OUR ORGANIC COTTON IS GOTS CERTIFIED 

(Global Organic Textile Standard)


GOTS certified Organic Cotton is great because:

It reduces our environmental footprint
No toxic chemicals are used in the growing it
It sustains the health of the soil that it grows in
It uses 88% less water and 62% less energy to grow than conventional cotton, due to it been grown in high rainfall areas as opposed to farmers needing to irrigate the land and divert water from the rivers
It is durable, versatile, and super comfy
When you choose organic cotton over conventional cotton you are investing in cleaner air, water conversion, better soil and better livelihoods for the farmers

Like all of us humans, nothing is perfect:

Organic cotton tends to have a lower yield, meaning you will need a little more land to grow it, this is due it not being genetically modified like conventional cotton.
Organic cotton does require a lot of water to grow, however, so long as it’s GOTS certified it will be grown in high rainfall areas


RECYCLED POLYESTER 


WE USE POLYESTER MADE FROM RECYCLED PLASTIC BOTTLES, SAVING THEM FROM THE SEA OR LANDFILL 


Recycled polyester is great because:

It saves plastic bottles from landfill or the sea
It's super soft and cosy
Less energy is used to create polyester yarn from recycled bottles than is needed to create brand new polyester yarn from oil

Like all of us humans, nothing is perfect:

All polyester garments shed microfibres when washing them, but there is something we can do to prevent this - use a guppy bag to catch the microfibres, we sell them at a small loss to keep the price accessible, get one here > guppy bag




SEACELL 

CLOSED LOOP FABRIC MADE FROM A COMBINATION OF SEAWEED AND WOOD PULP - 100% BIODEGRADABLE


Seacell is great because:

It is a cellulose fabric (like Viscose/Tencel/Lyocell/Modal) which means it's made from plants and then turned into fabric
Super soft
Fully biodegradable
Carbon neutral production
Made in a closed loop process to recycle the chemicals and water used
Made from a combination of seaweed (4%) and sustainably sourced wood. This means low land usage.
The seaweed harvesting is gentle, selective and doesn’t impact local ecosystems, is fully regenerative and uses no pesticides in its growth. The seaweed is entirely untreated, and all its ecological value is retained

Like all of us humans, nothing is perfect:

The process used to turn plants into fibre is chemically intensive, however, because it is made in a closed loop process all of the chemicals and water are recycled, so nothing harmful is released as waste




OEKO-TEX & GOTS DYES 




BOLD COLOURS & PRINTS ALL DYED RESPONSIBLY TO OEKO-TEX & GOTS STANDARDS 


Oeko-Tex sets out strict criteria for the human AND ecological impact of all areas of production of the textiles - 
from yarns and pre-treatments to dyes and finishing chemicals. 

Certified fabric has been tested and certified to be free from harmful levels of more than 100 substances known to be harmful to human health.
