What makes an ecological textile fiber?
All human activities leave a mark on the planet and dressing is no exception.
Our society produces, consumes and discards tons of garments daily and humanity faces the challenge of turning the textile industry into a sustainable and friendly sector with the planet.
That is why we support the use of ecological or sustainable fibers and responsible and rational consumption.
In order for a fabric to be certified as ecological, in its production process it must generate the minimum possible environmental impact.
It must use natural resources rationally, consume the minimum amount of energy and water, maintain the natural characteristics of the raw material, reduce chemical processes, commit to physical or mechanical processes, use biodegradable elements that do not harm health of workers and consumers.
Every time we use ecological fibers we benefit the ecosystem, our health and society. In our collections you can find these fibers:
This cotton (not genetically modified) grows naturally without pesticides or artificial fertilizers, is processed without using toxic chemicals, which means that it has less negative ecological impact on the planet, on the health of the workers and also preserves the land for futures.
It is estimated that conventional cotton uses, in its cultivation, 20% of pesticides and insecticides used in the world, is bleached with harmful compounds before being dyed with highly polluting products; all of them remain in the tissues that we later wear.
Conventional genetically modified cotton generates poverty, as farmers end up being dependent on the prices set by the producers of seeds and products to fight against pests.
in addition to the terrible conditions in which collectors work, often adolescents and children.
You will notice the difference …
Together with the nettle it is the most ecological fiber that exists.
A plant that grows naturally only with rainwater.
Due to its great resistance it is not a victim of pests, so it does not need the use of pesticides or insecticides, it is a fiber that does not contain harmful chemicals or pollute the soil.
It has great durability for its resistance and great absorbent power, dries quickly, does not shrink with contact with hot water, also blocks U.V and UVB rays by almost 95%, so it does not discolour with the sun.
It is an anti-bacterial textile, resistant to mold, like bamboo, regulates temperature, so it is equally useful for winter and summer.
Bamboo, an ultra-soft fiber with a delicate satin finish, is a spectacularly fast growing plant, which grows only fed by rainwater without requiring additional irrigation, of great resistance to pests and fungi, with what does not need the use of any insecticide or pesticide in its cultivation.
It has anti-bacterial and fungicidal characteristics, which in addition to respecting our skin, makes it stay longer without odors.
It is a natural thermo-regulator and also has a construction that facilitates perspiration and the sensation of freshness.
Close your eyes and touch it …
Fiber of milk
It is an innovative and healthy fiber derived from organic milk, from which casein, its main protein, is extracted to make fabrics with a silk-like shine and feel.
This fiber has anti-bacterial properties and a high level of moisture absorption, which allows the skin to breathe, it also constantly emits negative ions, which improves air quality and stimulates blood circulation.
High quality, woven with respect to the environment and animals with a total traceability of the sheep to the tissue.
Organic wool comes from animals not subject to hormones, steroids, antibiotics, vaccines, whose food has been preserved from pesticides, insecticides and chemical additives.
Furthermore, in the processing, spinning and weaving of wool, no harmful chemical agents have been used, the use of energy and CO2 emissions has been minimized.
The sustainable delicacy
As in the other materials in the process of production and processing of organic silk, chemical elements harmful to health and the environment are not used.
Apart from this, the silk is extracted from the cocoons abandoned by the worms, which respects the life of these animals.
All the brightness, the softness and the warmth of the silk but respectful and friendly.
