By focusing on using low-impact fabrics, we aim to work with the environment not against it.
A natural textile that is durable, breathable, silky soft, fast drying, lightweight, and easy to care from. When grown organically, cotton is fully sustainable without chemicals, is renewable and is biodegradable.
LYOCELL & TENCEL™
Lyocell is the third generation of Rayon and consists of cellulose fibers made from various wood pulps. The fiber is produced via an advanced 'closed loop' process, with minimal impact on the environment and economical use of energy and water, making this the most sustainable form of Rayon.
TENCEL™ is branded lyocell and modal fibers and is produced by environmentally responsible processes from the sustainably sourced natural raw material wood with very little waste product. TENCEL™ also creates the strongest fiber form of Rayon.
Bamboo Rayon is the second generation of Rayon and consists of wood fibres taken from bamboo trees. This is great because bamboo is a fast growing plant that requires no fertilizers, no pesticides, less water, less labour, and self-regenerates after being cut. Bamboo fibres are treated after spinning to make the filaments stronger, as well have the potential to be very light and fine. However, the fiber is not produced via a fully 'closed loop' process with some chemical solvent byproduct.
Modal Rayon is also the second generation of Rayon and consists of wood fibers taken from beech trees. Using the same process as bamboo, modal is treated to provide lightness and fineness, and has some chemical solvent byproduct.
Viscose Rayon is the first generation of Rayon and is created from regenerated cellulose fibre made from plants or wood pulp, using the viscose process. This process is not fully 'closed loop' leaving a 50% chemical solvent byproduct.
