What does sustainable mean? It's a method of harvesting or using a resource so that the resource is not depleted or permanently damaged. What are sustainable fabrics?
Linen requires minimal water and pesticides, and even grows in poor-quality soil. Plus, every part of the plant is used, so nothing is wasted. Linen is strong, naturally moth resistant, and, when untreated (i.e. not dyed), fully biodegradable. In addition to being good for the planet, it is also light and can withstand high temperatures, absorbing moisture without holding bacteria.
Organic cotton, a more sustainable alternative to conventional cotton, aims to minimize the environmental impact of cotton production by trying to remove harmful pesticides and other chemicals from the production process.
Recycled cotton prevents additional textile waste and requires far fewer resources than conventional or organic cotton. This makes it a great sustainable option.
The OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 is an independent testing and certification system for textile raw materials, intermediate and end products at all stages of production that guarantees to consumers the absence of harmful substances at levels that can be dangerous to the human body.
GOTS is recognized worldwide as the leading processing standard for textiles made with organic fibers, and GOTS certification enables consumers to purchase items that are certified organic from field to finished product.
What does responsible production mean? Not only using sustainable materials, but production in countries that employ fair labor practices, do not use child or slave labor. Providing access to basic services, decent jobs and a better quality of life for all.
