With our sustainable philosophy in mind we use a
lot of energy and research to find the best materials for
our collections. Each material we use, is unique and has
its own different qualities and reasons for being sustainable.
All our dyeing processes are AZO-free and an increasing
part of our styles are herbal dyed.
Organic cotton is characterized by a production
process without the use of pesticides, synthetic growth
regulators and genetically modified seeds. Also, a natural
rotation of crops in the fields is often employed. This way
a more fertile soil is retained which gives higher
yields and more resistant plants.
Bamboo is sustainable because the material
has a good absorption capacity and is grown without
pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. Farmed bamboo
stabilizes the earth with its roots, preventing erosion.
It takes in greenhouse gasses and produces oxygen.
In fact 35% more oxygen than an equivalent stand of trees.
Next to that bamboo is also stronger than cotton and
have almost the same feel as silk.
Soy is an environmentally friendly fabric because of the small
portion of water used during production, a high absorption
capacity and low pollution. Moreover, soy has good
ventilation capabilities and retains the heat better
than silk. The fabric feel is also very soft and
comparable to cashmere.
