The problem of synthetic fibers and conventional natural fibers (non-organic) is that they pollute the environment by releasing chemical products into the air, water and land, damaging the ecosystems and harming our health. This is a direct consequence of the massive use of toxic products for humans and the environment during the culture and transformation of the fiber.

For these reasons, and with the aim of protecting our Earth and our health, we have made the choice of working only with fibers from natural sources and with ecological transformation processes. These natural fibers come from plant sources (linen, hemp or Tencel®), which are farmed without the use of pesticides, GMO or chemical fertilisers and which consume fewer natural resources, resulting in less air, water and soil pollution.

ORGANIC LINEN

Cultivated without pesticides, GMO or chemical fertilisers, organic linen is one of the most ecological fibers. It does not need irrigation, respects the principle of crop rotation and is transformed by a mechanical procedure without toxic products and all are re-usable.

Its absorption capacity allows our clothes to breathe due to its antiperspirant effect. Linen is a must for sensitive skins due to its hypoallergenic and anti-bacterial properties. Moreover, it is three times more resistant than cotton.

HEMP

Hemp is the ultimate ecological fiber. Its cultivation does not require irrigation or any chemical product since the plant is naturally highly resistant to parasites and weeds. Hemp maintains the soils, its roots drain the earth and regenerate it.

Just like linen, hemp protects your skin by its hypoallergenic and anti-bacterial properties. A natural heat regulator, it is an excellent thermal insulator: it offers warmth and comfort in winter; freshness and lightness in summer.

TENCEL®

Tencel® is the brand name owned by the company Lenzing Fibers for an improved version (environmentally speaking) of a fiber generically called lyocell. Tencel® is a fiber of natural origin, it is made from eucalyptus wood pulp. Its origins and manufacturing process makes it a sustainable and biodegradable material: eucalyptus grows quickly and does not need irrigation water or pesticides and other toxic products. The fiber only comes from sustainably managed forest plantations where the trees are constantly replaced (it benefits from the PECF European Label).

The manufacturing process is carried out using a natural, non-toxic and biodegradable solvent(NMMO), which is recycled in a closed circuit with 99.7% recovered. This process does not release any toxic vapour into the atmosphere and uses 15 to 20 times less water than cotton. It was rewarded by the “European Award for the Environment” for its environmental performance. With its extreme softness and suppleness and excellent absorption capacity, Tencel® will ensure absolute comfort for your skin.

LENZING MODAL®

Lenzing Modal® is very similar to Tencel® both in terms of properties (hypoallergenic, antibacterial, softness, etc.) and its origin: it is made from beech wood pulp. They are also very similar in terms of manufacturing, the difference being in the solvent used. The solvent used is sodium sulphate, it is non-organic but non-toxic.

Regarding Modal®, up to 95% of the solvent is recovered and recycled in other industries, whereas 99.7% of the solvent can be recovered and re-injected into the Tencel® manufacturing process.

Just like Tencel®, the CO2 footprint of Modal® is neutral thanks to the carbon compensation involved in the regeneration of trees used for its production. Both materials are sustainable, but Tencel® can be seen as the most efficient one in terms of ecological production. That is why we have specialised in Tencel®, only one of our styles is made of Modal®.
