A healthy planet requires all individuals and companies to adopt a greener existence.
In 2002, we became a founding member of the Organic Exchange, a non-profit business organization focused on creating environmental and social benefits through the expansion of organic agriculture.
Our mission became clearer: helping the earth... one garment at a time. Today, over 75% of our styles use lower impact or sustainable materials.
Incorporating organic cotton into our business was the first step in our journey of sustainability. With the use of organically farmed cotton, we support avoiding the use of chemical pesticides, synthetic fertilizers and genetic engineering. We are able to track our organic cotton from the farm to our factories to ensure we are always working to reduce our eco footprint.
RAYON FROM BAMBOO
Bamboo grows incredibly fast, up to a foot per day and doesn’t require the use of pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers or a lot of water. Rayon from bamboo is strong, naturally wrinkle-resistant and machine washable. It tends to be warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, making it an incredibly versatile fabric.
MODAL & LENZING MODAL®
Modal is a bio-based fabric made from the wood pulp of beech trees. Sometimes referred to as “artificial silk,” modal is soft, smooth and drapes well. It also breathes well and is very absorbent.
Lenzing Modal® has an even stricter ecologically friendly production process. Pulp for Lenzing Modal® is produced at the same site as the modal fiber itself - less transportation, means less resources used!
