SUSTAINABLE METHODS

Not only do we focus on buying environmentally and socially responsible fabrics, we also pay attention to the dyes used in our fabrics. The types of dyes used on our fabrics range from natural, plants and vegetable, environmentally friendly, procion low impact, and fiber reactive dyes.

We visit our manufacturers at least once a week to verify that they are continuing to adhere to our company’s Manufacturing Inspection Guidelines. These guidelines are in line with the principles described by the Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production website.

In addition to organic cotton, we use and are researching many possible environmentally friendly textiles. From Alpaca to recycled brass beads, we try to use materials that are eco-conscious. We focus on the impact that farming has on the environment, the toxicity of chemicals used in processing the fabric, and the lifespan of the textile once it has been cut into a garment. 

 

 

 

ORGANIC COTTON

 

 

 

Our all cotton garments are made using certified organic cotton yarns.

These yarns were grown, spun, dyed and knit or woven in the USA, China, Egypt and India.

Organic production systems replenish and maintain soil fertility, reduce the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilizers, and build biologically diverse agriculture.

The organic fibers are certified by GOTS and Oeko-Tex

 

 

HEMP FABRIC

 

You can see many our hemp garments in Spring/Summer collection.


These yarns were grown, spun, dyed and woven in Chine, Turkey and India.


The organic fibers are certified by GOTS and Oeko-Tex

 

 

RECYCLED MATERIALS

 

When possible we try to eliminate waste by upcycling our scraps and using recycled embellishments.


For example : The weaving hand collaboration use the scraps from the TWIST DRESS.

LOCALLY SOURCED ALPACA

 

Handloomed and locally sourced in Peru.


Alpacas are known for having low-impact on the environment. 

 

 

 

AMERICAN GROWN FIBRES

 

We try to use 100% organic cotton grown in the USA as possible. 


It is grown by independent farms that are part of the Texas Organic Growers Marketing Coop.

 
All knits are produced domestically by family owned mills, located close to the North Carolina headquarters.

PANCHACHULI HANDWOVEN FABRIC

 

 

Hand dyed, hand spun, hand knitted and woven by the Panchachuli Women Weavers of Kumaon.

The wool is separated by hand from the goat wool, then washed and carded by Scottish machines ensuring high grade quality wool. It is then hand spun using either a traditional takli or 'Ghandi spinning wheel', then hand woven.

Textile Source: New Zealand lambswool. The dyes are made from indigenous flowers, leaves, bark and roots with the exception of Indigo which comes from Southern India.
