We have searched the world for the best natural fabrics because we want you to love the way your dress looks and feels.
And because we want your dress to last in your closet, not in a landfill. Say goodbye to polyester!
We think education is the first step to change, so here are some facts about our fabrics:
Tencel is produced in a ‘closed loop’ solvent spinning process. Economical use of energy and water are kept at a minimum, lowering environmental impact. Tencel does not require as much washing as other garments and does not wrinkle, eliminating the need for an iron, which saves energy and water. Tencel is antibacterial, smooth and gentle on the skin.
It’s made from cotton linter, a waste product of cotton. Yay for reducing waste! It’s produced in a closed loop like Tencel, which means that the chemicals used can be extracted afterwards and the water can be reused. It’s made from 100% plant-based materials, so it’s biodegradable. It can be washed in water (either machine-washed or hand-washed), so there’s no need to dry clean.
The energy use in organic cotton is about 40% lower than conventional cotton farming due to lower energy inputs into the crop cultivation stage for no synthetic chemicals, fertilizers, and pesticides use and irrigation, and lower levels of mechanization.
Viscose has a natural sheen and softness like silk but is more durable. Viscose can be ironed at a lower temperature than cotton, requiring less energy for ironing. Clothing is easy to launder in a clothes washer and dryer. Viscose can be completely decomposed without decomposing into any pollutants such as methane gas.
Hemp releases dirt easily and each time hemp is washed, it constantly reveals new surfaces, usually becoming softer with use. Hemp can produce 250% more fiber than cotton and 600% more fiber than flax using the same amount of land.
