sustainable fibers + dyes—beautiful, down to the strand.
The type of fibers used has a significant impact on the environment, how fabrics perform, and how to dispose of them. We created a list of fibers we use with data and information from various sources like Textile Exchange's Preferred Fiber Market Report, from other reputable online forums, from publications such as Why Materials Matter by Seetal Solanki, and by talking to and visiting several textile mills.
All our fabrics are certified Oeko-Tex Standard 100, so you can be sure they are free from harmful dyes and chemicals. Learn more about the standard 100 by Oeko-Tex by clicking the logo.

TENCEL™ lyocell and modal is the registered brand name for lyocell and modal fibres manufactured by Lenzing in Austria.
TENCEL™ Lyocell and Modal fibers help to maintain the environmental balance by being integrated into nature´s cycle. The fibers originate from the renewable raw material wood, created by photosynthesis. The certified biobased fibers are manufactured using an environmentally responsible production process. The fibers are certified as compostable and biodegradable, and thus can fully revert back to nature.
Our TENCEL™ fibers are sourced from Lenzing in Austria.
Certified Organic Cotton
made for living
Certified Organic Cotton disallows the use of genetically modified seed and restricts or disallows the use of many synthetic agricultural chemicals.
Organic farming aims to self-stabilize agro-ecosystems and uses crop rotation and biological means to control pests and pathogens. Studies show that organic farming builds organic matter in the soil; reduces soil, air, and water contamination; increases soil fertility and biodiversity; reduces human and wildlife health hazards; reduces the greenhouse gas emissions resulting from the production of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides.
Our organic cotton is sourced from Tanzania

Elastane is a synthetic manufactured fiber that is a long-chain synthetic polymer. When used as the central filament core yarn with staple fibers such as cotton or lyocell, elastane becomes the silent hero in the consumer use stage, as it can prolong the use of a product by helping it to retain its shape. The manufacturing process of elastane is energy-intensive and highly chemical, and the building blocks are derived from petroleum. Not exactly sustainable. This is why we use it very sparingly and use recycled elastane whenever possible.
Our elastanne is sourced from Germany
Linen is derived from flax which is a natural bast fiber. Flax fiber has a high natural luster. It’s a fast and easy-growing annual, which requires a cool and relatively humid climate. Flax is a good rotation crop, grows quickly, and requires few chemical inputs in its cultivation. Flax is a rain-fed crop and generally doesn’t require irrigation.
Our linen is sourced from Europe
