Linen is a sustainable fabric made from flax plants. Flax is an extremely versatile plant, used as nutritional supplemets like seeds and oils, but most importantly flax fibers are used to make linen. Linen is a highly breathable fabric, durable and temperature resistant, and also requires less water and energy to produce. Not only do we use linen, but the linen is up-cycled. This allows us to prevent textiles going into landfills, and ensure that waste is kept to a minimum within the production process.
Cotton is one of the most widely used materials in the world and a staple fabric in the fashion industry. The cotton we have sourced from India is a cotton voile made from 100% cotton. This fabric has a higher thread count than most cotton fabrics making it very light weight and soft.
Our handwoven cotton is made with cotton grown on local farms located in Central Java, Indonesia and recycled cotton taken from production and textile waste in the area. The virgin cotton is grown without using any pesticides or any chemical fertilizers. The cotton is handwoven by farmers, now weavers who are also located in Central Java, Indonesia.
Our handwoven silks are made from 100% mulberry. The silkworms that produce these fibers feed only on mulberry leaves. These silks are known to be the most desirable due to how refined and durable they are. This fabric is not vegan as the process requires the cocoons to be placed in hot water to unravel the strands. These silks are produced and handwoven in West Bengal, India as they are known for their great quality yarns and skilled weaving artisans.
