Fabric and Care

Circularity and sustainability go beyond the design and production process. As a consumer you play an enormous role in the circular economy. Taking good care of your clothes, repairing if something is broken or giving it a second life all ensure maximum life, because we believe that an item should last much more than one season. In this way you reduce the use of new raw materials and waste is limited. Read all the information about our materials in this article so that you can enjoy your garment to the fullest.

EcoVero Viscose

Viscose is a widely used material in the clothing industry because of its strong, soft and shiny properties. Unfortunately, many chemicals are used to convert wood pulp into this substance, which eventually end up in nature. Almost all the wood used for viscose comes from old and endangered forests. To overcome these environmental problems, we have chosen to use 100% Ecovero viscose. Ecovero viscose is made from certified renewable wood grown in FSC or PEFC certified forests. Materials used during the production process are constantly reused. The bleaching process is 100% chlorine-free. Reduction of CO2 emissions, water and energy consumption are also taken into account. Ecovero fabric is slightly shiny, soft, light and breathable and therefore extremely comfortable.
Wash your Ecovero viscose garment at a maximum of 30 degrees. Skip the tumble dryer to avoid shrinkage.

Tencel

Tencel eliminates the negative environmental impacts of traditional fiber processing.
Tencel has a pleasant, almost sooty cool feeling on the skin. it absorbs and releases moisture efficiently and thus supports the body's natural heat regulation. Perfect for blouses, dresses and trousers.

Sustainable Cotton

Cotton is one of the most widely used fabrics in the clothing industry because of its absorbency, strength, durability and comfort. However, the production is rich in pesticides, insecticides and toxins, which are harmful to the health of farmers and nature. Cotton production is also very water consuming. The growth of one kilo of cotton alone takes almost 20,000 liters of water. To address these issues, we have chosen to use three different certified cotton that improve cotton production, including GOTS certified and organic cotton, organic cotton and BCI cotton.

Sustainable cotton has no special washing instructions and can be washed at 30 or 40 degrees just like normal cotton. Are there no stains in your clothes? Then try to wash them as cold as possible. The greatest impact on the environment of washing is in the heating of the water.

GOTS certified and organic cotton

The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the world's leading textile processing standard for organic fibers and includes environmental and social criteria. Only textile products that contain at least 70% organic fibers can be GOTS certified. All chemicals used, such as dyes and additives, must meet certain environmental and toxicological criteria. Furthermore, a functional waste water treatment plant is mandatory and all working conditions must meet the social criteria.

Organic Cotton

Organic cotton is made from natural seeds without the use of pesticides or other harmful chemicals. Instead, the Pests are controlled with insects. This makes organic cotton products safer for cotton farmers, the environment and our skin. Organic cotton feels softer, absorbs moisture and is breathable. It is a very comfortable fabric with a good fit.

BCI Cotton

The Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) is a global non-profit organization and the largest cotton sustainability program in the world. BCI exists to make global cotton production better for the people who produce it, the environment in which it grows and the future of the industry.

Merino Wool

Merino wool is one of the softest and most popular wools in the fashion industry. It is known worldwide for its softness, strength, breathability and temperature regulating benefits. Merino sheep come mainly from New Zealand, Australia, Argentina and South Africa. In summer it can reach 35 degrees Celsius while in winter the temperature drops well below 0 degrees Celsius. Due to the large temperature differences that occur in these areas, merino wool can withstand both seasons. That is why merino wool is so popular in clothing. Unfortunately, these sheep are not always treated properly during shearing. We always guarantee 100% animal-friendly merino wool. Our merino wool is 100% natural, renewable and biodegradable

Responsible Wool

Due to the self-cleaning properties of wool, woolen garments need to be washed less often. Wool contains a bacteria-inhibiting substance that acts as a soap and is released after contact with moisture. To avoid washing, you can easily hang your woolen item outside in damp weather.

Washing can be done by hand or with more modern washing machines with a special wool program at a maximum of 30 degrees and preferably with special wool detergent. Make sure there are no other items of clothing in the drum that could cause hooks.

Wool becomes very heavy when wet and can therefore stretch. Therefore, lay the garment flat on the drying rack to dry.

Recycled Steel

We are increasingly using recycled materials in our collections. This creates less waste and conserves natural resources. For example, our buttons and zippers are made from recycled steel and you will often encounter recycled cotton, wool and polyamide as fabric.

We are replacing more and more fabrics with recycled variants. Therefore, always check the washing instructions for each item of clothing carefully.

Recycled Fabrics

If we can reuse fabrics we will do it. why trow something away what still can be used? We don't want to create any more waste. With our #EndlessElements we contribute to this statement. We will make your old garment into something stunningly new!

We are replacing more and more fabrics with recycled variants. Therefore, always check the washing instructions for each item of clothing carefully.

Recycled Polyester

A part of the polyester we use is from recycled plastic. We are trying to use recycled products more and more often. Less waste is better for our environment and better for us and animals.

We are replacing more and more fabrics with recycled variants. Therefore, always check the washing instructions for each item of clothing carefully.
