We only use very soft and delicate fabrics for our styles and it’s important for us that it also stays like that efter several washes. Each material we use is unique and has its own different qualities and reasons for being sustainable.
The banana fabric is made from banana leaf, which is a sustainable fabric. The banana plants rarely require fertilizers or pesticides and are therefore very eco – friendly.
The fibres are primarily waste elements of the farmers’ leftover stalks from banana plants and are proscessed into fibers after they have been harvested for food. The banana fibers make the finest and silkiest fabric.
Lyocell is a form of rayon consisting of cellulose fiber made from dissolving pulp.
It is defined as a fiber composed of cellulose precipitated from an organic solution in which no substitution of the hydroxyl groups takes place and no chemical intermediates are formed. Lyocell is therefore an environmentally friendly fabric.
Milk ber textile is made from sour milk from the dairy industry. The protein is extracted from the milk and made into a soft and shiny ber that can be spun and used for fabric.
The fabric has qualities comparable to those of silk. Because of the bacteriostatic nature of milk ber, it is being considered as a perfect material for the manufacturing of underwear. Do to the fact that the ma- terial is a byproduct and has very few chemicals in production, it is regarded as a sustainable fabric.
Organic cotton is characterized by a production process without the use of pesticides, synthetic growth regulators and seeds is not genetically modified.
There is also often hospitalized a natural rotation of crops in the fields – in this way retained a more fertile soil that gives higher yields and resistant plants.
The reason why recycled polyester is considered as a green option in textiles is because it is using less energy and various studies all agree that it takes from 33% to 53% less energy compared to what’s needed to produce virgin polyester.
Next to that it also help keeping bottles and other plastics out of the landfills, since that’s what the polyester is made from.
It is also cited as producing far fewer emissions to the air than the production of virgin polyester.
