Bamboo 50% - The bamboo plant is one of the most versatile resources today. Bamboo is not only a renewable source, it is also the fastest-growing crop, with some varieties growing almost a meter in a single day. As such, it requires less labor and land, making it available and relatively affordable material. In particular, we like bamboo because this plant needs no fertilizers or pesticides to grow. Pesticides, especially in synthetic form, kill the microorganisms in the soil. In the long run, pesticides rob the soil of nutrients and significantly decrease its ability to feed the plants and control the water flow. Using crops like bamboo keeps the soil free of such interventions, allowing it to naturally regenerate.
We choose to work with bamboo for its softness, flexibility, and natural antibacterial properties. Bamboo is also a high carbon-absorbing plant and is overall better for the soil. Unfortunately, due to mass production and a growing market need, bamboo became a profitable business. The reality is that just because the crop doesn’t require synthetic chemicals, it doesn’t mean that they are not used, both to grow the plant and to process it into the fabric. Today, bamboo is often planted as a monoculture, contributing to rapid forest and biodiversity loss. The supply chain is usually not transparent and we have no information about the safety and compensation of the farmers and workers involved in its production.
This is why we made sure to source organic and 100 OEKO-TEX certified bamboo, meaning that we use no toxic chemicals in any part of our production. As always, we create our fabrics and garments ethically, in close partnership with our artisans.
Peace Silk ( Ahimsa silk) - 50% - Rare things are as captivating as silk cloth. Smooth, light but durable, we love the luxurious feel of the silk but not the way it is made.
The usual production of silk or sericulture starts by harvesting the silk cocoons and boiling them, with the live caterpillars inside. This is done to keep the silk thread whole and undamaged. Peace silk is a type of silk, which is produced from silk cocoons, where the worm comes out of the cocoons. As the worm cuts the cocoons and moves away from cocoons, the Silk Cocoons are considered as the SECOND grade of Cocoons as it is not possible to get Reeled silk / Continuous filament silk yarn from it. So, our fabric partners collect those types of cocoons. When we became interested in silk, we firmly decided that we will do things differently. There is no beauty in clothes if it comes with suffering. This is why we turned to peace or ahimsa silk. This is a cruelty-free process that uses abandoned cocoons, allowing the silkworm to live its full lifecycle. We process the silk threads ethically and sustainably, working closely with artisans and using natural, handmade, and waste-free processes.
