A Look at Our Plant Based, Sustainable Fabrics

Updated: Sep 15, 2020

This line was born out of a dream to create beautiful work essentials that were also cruelty free.  Our founder has been dedicated to a vegan lifestyle for years & felt that helping create a more compassionate fashion world was her calling.  

Many people don't know about the cruelty that happens in the fashion world because most consumers don't know where their clothing is coming from.   We set out to create high quality garments that did not harm animals, the planet or the people who made them.   We instead researched and found the best in sustainable, plant based materials to use in our clothing.   Read on to learn more about our materials.   LINEN Linen is a natural fiber made from the flax plant.  Flax is very easy to grow & does not require chemicals to be processed into textile making linen one of the most sustainable fibers.   It is also popular because it is long lasting & softens beautifully with age.  It is also completely biodegradable and acts in a way that keeps you cool in warm weather & warm in cool weather.   

HEMP Hemp fabric is made from the long strands of fiber found in the stalk of the plant.  Hemp is a wonder plant growing well without the use of pesticides or herbicides.   It amazingly returns about 60% of the nutrients back to the soil as well.  It helps control the erosion of the topsoil & produces oxygen.   Hemp is extremely renewable as it can be cultivated in as little as 100 days.  It also is hypo-allergenic & non-irritation to the skin.   

COTTON Cotton has been called a "dirty" plant, but organic cotton is much better than its  conventional counterpart.   Organic cotton produces 46% less CO2 emissions compared to conventional and uses far less water to process it in to fabric.   It is grown safely & processed without toxic dyes or finishing materials.   Cotton is a highly sought after material for clothing as it does not trap heat so it retains odor less & can be washed less frequently, saving water and energy.   TENCEL Tencel fabric is the newest guy on the block of sustainable textiles and is growing in popularity.   Tencel is made from natural cellulose from wood pulp, making it fully biodegradable.  The production of tencel produces no harmful byproducts.   It is naturally anti-bacterial and has wicking abilities to help keep skin dry.  It is soft, lightweight, breathable & comfortable and is also resistant to wrinkles.
