Our Materials

From the Source

All garments from our collection are made from the most sustainable source we could find that would fit our outlook and design. This guide will inform you more on the sources of our fibers and how they are made. For the making of our garments we only used the better, more sustainable option of each available fiber.

Cotton

Cotton is a natural and vegetable fiber that comes from the fluff of the cotton plant. The highest quality cotton, such as Pima and Egyptian cotton, is produced from the longest fibres. Cotton can absorb 20% moisture without feeling damp, but once wet it dries slowly. Denim, velvet, and corduroy are also made of cotton.

The benefits of cotton are: easy to keep warm, a soft feel to the skin, it absorbs moisture, is breathable, heat resistant and easy to clean & hygienic.

vs. Organic Cotton

If you want to be sure that what you are buying is grown in a truly sustainable environment, certified organic cotton is your best option by far. Organic cotton is made without toxic substances and polluting pesticides, and it’s also grown in healthier soil. Because of this, textiles made from organic cotton are generally much better quality. 

It can take up to 2500 litres of water to make one t-shirt from regular cotton. Luckily, organic cotton doesn’t have such a requirement. It uses 88% less water than the making of regular cotton.

100% certified organic cotton is used in the making of: our t-shirts, sweaters and joggers.

Viscose

Viscose is an artificial fiber. The raw material comes from wood pulp and cotton linters. Because viscose is made from cellulose, it has many similarities with cotton: it feels pleasant and soft, is comfortable to wear, falls naturally and is easy to dye in (bright) colors.

Compared to cotton, the material is less strong; like any cellulosic fiber, it wrinkles quickly and absorbs more moisture than cotton. The quality of viscose yarn can be determined during the production process to go for a higher or lower quality.

The benefits of viscose are: a soft feel, comfortable wear, luxurious outlook and it folds easily.

vs. EcoVero / Lenzing

EcoVero, or Lenzing™, is the sustainable variant of the viscose fiber. Compared to the production of normal viscose, EcoVero produces 50 percent less emissions and uses half the energy and water. In addition, bleaching the pulp is 100 percent chlorine-free. The water used in this process of making is fully 'cleaned up' before returning it to nature.

29% certified EcoVero is used in the making of: our blazer and trousers.

Polyester

Polyester is a man-made synthetic fiber that was developed in the early 1950s. It is now the most used material worldwide after cotton. Polyester is a strong fiber and very resistant to wear and wrinkles, absorbs oil but not moisture and dries quickly. Polyester melts at high temperatures so it is important to keep the fabric away from open flames.

The benefits of using polyester in fabric is: it is wrinkle resistant, quick to dry, strong, resistant to wear and creases, it does not shrink, immune to fungus, sunlight and insects.

vs. Recyled Polyester

RPET stands for Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate, also known as Recycled Polyester. It’s made from recycled plastic (PET) bottles. Every day millions of plastic bottles are being thrown away, meanwhile those bottles can actually be a viable, eco-friendly and sustainable resource.

Using RPET instead of regular polyester we save:

  • 70% less Energy
  • 86% less Water
  • 75% less CO2

68% certified RPET is used in the making of: our blazer and trousers.

The 7 steps of

Making Recycled Polyester

1. Water bottles are collected and brought to a recycling facility. 

2. A separation process removes the caps and labels from the bottles, as they are made of plastics with different characteristics. 

3. Plastic bottles are then processed into flakes.

4. After being washed the flakes are melted.

5. Yarns are pulled from the melted polyester.

6. The result is a clean, valuable, and recycled raw material perfect for the textile industry.

7. The raw filament yarns are spun into yarn and ultimately woven into variety of different fabrics.

Elastane (Lycra)

Elastane is always used in combination with other yarns, so that the textile obtains a high extensibility and elasticity. An ideal fit is often guaranteed with elastane.

The fibre can be stretched to some degree and comes back to its shape when released. Elastane fibers are strong, versatile and lighter than rubber which makes them superior. 

Elastane is used where a high degree of permanent elasticity is required and in woven and knitted fabrics. Adding elastane (just for couple of percent) makes fabrics more comfortable to wear.

The benefits to using elastane are: it can stretch and reshape 6 to 8 times their own length, can be easily washed and garment dyed, feels soft, lightweight and abrasion resistant.

3% certified Elastane is used in the making of: our blazer and trousers.

Corozo

Corozo is a natural material made from the seeds of the corozo palm. Also known as vegetable ivory, corozo is a plant based, ecologically responsible material. Unlike plastic, it is non-toxic and biodegradable.

The production of Corozo buttons does not require the cutting-down of trees, because the buttons are made from the trees nut. Corozo seeds can only be collected when they fall naturally from the tree - otherwise they are not ripe enough for button production. So corozo button production does not require any deforestation. 

100% corozo buttons are used in the making of: our blazer.
