Bamboo

Bamboo absorbs only 30% of the water from the soil when compared to cotton.

Bamboo is technically a grass hence it grows automatically after every harvest without any pesticides or fertilizers.

Bamboo is naturally Anti-bacterial and naturally thermal controlled so it is just not skin-friendly but also regulates its temperature according to the environment.

Organic Cotton

Liberated from the toxic chemicals used in traditional cotton production," our 100% Non-GMO, certified organic cotton, leaving the soil, air & water free from contamination that causes harm to people & the planet.

 

Conventional cotton is the most heavily treated crops with insecticide and fertilizer, accounting for 10% of the world’s pesticides and 25% of all insecticides. 

Fair Trade

"Fairtrade" can mean many different things.
Our partners adhere to a number of strict practices, including:

 

  • Transparent working conditions and production standards.

  • Committed relationships with growers, seamstresses, and others to continually raise standards 

  • 3rd party audits and on-site visits of manufacturing facilities to ensure fair & safe working conditions and production standards.

  • Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) certified factories.

  • Raw materials purchased from and contracts made directly with growers & farmers.

  • Health insurance for workers.

Hemp

Perhaps the world’s most resourceful fiber, hemp requires little water & grows resiliently without the use of herbicides & insecticides.

 

For thousands of years, hemp has been used for fuel, food & fiber. As a fabric, hemp provides all the warmth, breathability and softness of other natural textiles but with a superior durability seldom found in other materials. 

Silk

Silk is a pure natural material which is 100% biodegradable. No plastic particles go out into the oceans as when washing synthetic garments.

Silk is easy to color un-like many other fabrics that require a lot of chemicals when bleaching and dyeing. In addition, we offer completely uncolored & untreated natural white silk blended with Organic Cotton.
