TENCEL®

 IS A BRANDED LYOCELL FIBER THAT COMES FROM THE PULP OF TREES THAT ARE GROWN ON SUSTAINABLY RUN FARMS CERTIFIED BY THE FOREST STEWARDSHIP COUNCIL (FSC).THE WOOD PULP IS DISSOLVED IN A NON-TOXIC ORGANIC SOLVENT. THE SOLUTION IS EXTRUDED THROUGH FINE HOLES TO PRODUCE FIBER AND THE SOLVENT IS RECYCLED IN A CLOSED-LOOP PROCESS – MORE THAN 99% OF THE SOLVENT IS RECOVERED AND REUSED. WE ENSURE THAT THE FABRIC PROCESSING OF TENCEL® LYOCELL FIBER DOES NOT UTILIZE ANY HARMFUL CHEMICALS (LIKE FORMALDEHYDE) SOMETIMES USED TO FINISH THIS TYPE OF FABRIC.TENCEL LYOCELL CAN BE USED IN PLACE OF OTHER REGENERATED CELLULOSE FIBERS SUCH AS VISCOSE RAYON. THE BENEFITS OF USING TENCEL LYOCELL INCLUDE THE TRACEABLE AND SUSTAINABLE ORIGIN OF THE WOOD PULP, AND THE USE OF NON-TOXIC CHEMICALS AND SOLVENTS IN THE FIBER PROCESSING. IN ADDITION, TENCEL LYOCELL IS A HIGH-TENACITY CELLULOSIC FIBER, WHICH GIVES HIGH STRENGTH PROPERTIES TO THE FABRIC.

 

 ORGANIC COTTON

TO LOOK AT CONVENTIONALLY GROWN COTTON IT'S HARD TO DISTINGUISH FROM COTTON THAT’S ORGANICALLY GROWN. IT'S ONLY WHEN YOU LOOK INTO THE PROCESS OF HOW IT'S BEEN GROWN AND PROCESSED YOU REALISE HOW DAMAGING IT IS TO THE ENVIRONMENT.ORGANIC COTTON IS 100% PESTICIDE FREE. WITH CONVENTIONALLY GROWN COTTON THE USE OF PESTICIDES, SYNTHETIC FERTILIZERS, DEFOLIANTS AND SOIL ADDITIVES THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT IS HUGELY DAMAGING NOT TO MENTION THE HEALTH COST TO THE COMMUNITIES THAT FARM THE COTTON. WE'VE REDUCED THE CARBON FOOTPRINT OF OUR PRODUCTS BY UP TO 90% BY USING SUPPLIERS THAT USE A COMBINATION OF INNOVATIVE PRODUCT DESIGN, LOW IMPACT ORGANIC AGRICULTURE, EFFICIENCY IN MANUFACTURING AND BY HAVE REPLACED STANDARD GRID ELECTRICITY WITH RENEWABLE WIND POWER. IT HAS BEEN CALCULATED THAT ONE OF OUR ORGANIC T-SHIRTS SAVES AROUND 7 KILOGRAMS OF CO2E.
