Our Textiles

Textile forms the base of any garment and is generally one of the biggest carbon contributors to a piece of clothes.

We are proud to say that our textile does significantly less damage to the environment than conventional synthetic textiles. By using natural fibres with low emission rates, we aim to eliminate micro-plastics from our supply chain, ensuring that our product has a minimal impact both during the production phase and the user phase.

Our textiles are all carefully chosen to ensure minimal environmental impact and optimum consumer comfort.

HEMP

  • Social and environmental impact

    Hemp is commonly considered one of the most sustainable crops, as it needs no pesticides, 33% less water than conventional crops, and absorbs large amount of carbon dioxide during its growth stage. Moreover – every part of the hemp plant can be used for either food or producing goods, meaning there is almost no waste involved in its harvest.

  • Durability

    Hemp is one of the strongest natural fibres in the world, making it perfect for the creation of durable products that can last for years. In fact, hemp was traditionally used to make ropes for large ships due to its durability and strength.

  • User impact

    Hemp is hypoallergenic and therefore a great choice for those with sensitive skin. Moreover, hemp has thermoregulating qualities – keeping you cold when you’re warm, and warm when you’re cold.

  • How it feels

    Hemp creates a quite rough textile, meaning that it must be mixed with at least 20% cotton, or another soft fibre, to create a soft item. However, opposite many other fibres, hemp softens with age, making it a great option for your capsule wardrobe.

  • Origin

    The hemp in our first production originated in China – however, due to a lack of transparency on the producer’s end, we are now sourcing our hemp from Italy.

COTTON

  • Social and environmental impact

    Cotton is a natural and plant-based fibre, meaning that it can biodegrade and does not shed any micro plastic particles when it is washed.

  • How it feels

    Cotton is a lightweight and breathable textile, making it perfect for t-shirts, shorts and summer dresses. As cotton is soft on the skin, it is also a great tool to soften otherwise harsh fibres such as hemp and linen. (Hint: our hemp-based sweatshirts, are made from 55% organic hemp and 45% organic cotton)

  • Origin

    All of the cotton in our products are produced in Turkey.

LINEN

  • Social and environmental impact

    Linen is an incredible low impact crop, as it requires very little water, can biodegrade completely, creates minimal waste – as the whole plant can be used - and retains large amounts of carbon dioxide during its growth stage. Similar to hemp, linen also requires virtually no pesticides or fertilizers.

  • Durability

    Linen is an incredibly durable fibre, making it the perfect fibre for long lasting timeless products.

  • User impact

    Linen is hypoallergenic and therefore a great choice for those with sensitive skin.

  • How it feels

    Linen is an incredible breathable textile, and very absorbent (it can absorb 20% of its own weight before feeling damp), making it the perfect choice for warm summer days. Linen is, however, quite rough and unable to stretch – unless mixed with a softer fibre, such as cotton.

  • Origin

    Even today, 85% of the world’s linen comes from Europe. The linen fibres in our products are all harvested in Turkey or Italy.
