Over 8,000 different chemicals are used to produce, dye, and finish the textiles that are used in most of the clothes you wear now. These chemicals have known effects on human and environmental health, but are still commonly used by most global brands. In addition, the creation of new synthetics fibers is resource-intensive and contributes to a significant amount of carbon emissions.
We choose materials based on their environmental footprint and select only the most responsible fabrics available. By committing to low-impact textiles, we are choosing production methods that have far less environmental impact than standard materials used in the industry. This means only natural, renewable, recycled, biodegradable, and low-impact textiles.
The Future of Our Materials:
We continue to look for material solutions that will offer greater benefits to the environment, and extend our efforts throughout our entire supply chain. This means looking for solutions from the very start of textile development and resource cultivation, to how our products are delivered to your front door, all the way through to when your products are nearing their end of life.
Our vision is to one day use materials that provide substantial benefits to people and to the planet.
Conventional cotton farming has a significant environmental impact. It requires toxic pesticides and fertilizers, which cause biodiversity loss and can damage farmers' health.
Organic farming works with nature, instead of against it. It offers an all-encompassing solution. It is a more balanced way of producing cotton that considers the whole ecosystem.
Organic cotton eliminates the use of toxic and persistent chemicals, improves soil health, and increases water conservation. All of which is good for the environment, good for farmers, and good for their communities.
Organic cotton is better for you and better for the environment.
We go a step further and make sure our materials are OEKO-TEX ® STANDARD 100 certified.
This means that how our fabrics are processed - including the dyes and finishes - are certified free of harmful chemicals and are completely safe.
The rigorous testing take into account every conceivable way that harmful substances can enter the body and is used as a global industry standard for safe material testing.
Our materials are better for your skin and better for the environment.
Packaging is a necessary part of our supply chain, as it ensures our products arrive to you protected and unharmed.
We've partnered with packaging suppliers to create 100% recycled and naturally biodegradable packaging. Not only is our packaging constructed entirely from recovered trash, but once its served its purpose, our packaging can easily be redeposited back into the paper recycling stream - creating a closed loop process, all while adding value back into the system.
However, we aren't stopping here. We image a day when all of our packaging is made from material already in use or from regenerative resources whose production gives back to the environment. A future where every pieces of packaging is recycled so that no materials or resources are wasted. We are not there yet, but are actively working on providing better solutions such as algae ink made from the waste stream of algae production facilities.
