Cupro is a fabric from recycled cotton cellulose waste. It is plant based and completely biodegradable. All chemicals used during the production process like (Tencel and Lyocell) can be extracted and reused. Cupro has the textural qualities you would expect from luxury fabrics like silk or rayon. It’s super silky, enduring, and has weight to it.
Lyocell is a natural fibre made from wood pulp from sustainable agriculture forests. Lyocell is a biodegradable material created in a natural cycle which works with cellulose from supervised and respectfully managed forests. The plantation of trees for Lyocell production does not require irrigation or pesticides (unlike cotton, which is water, pesticide and labour-intensive). Lyocell fibres are smooth, elastic and are resistant to wrinkles.
Linen is one of the most ancient fabrics out there. It comes from flax, which requires little amount of water, fewer pesticides, herbicides and fungicides to grow compared to other fibres like cotton. This, along with its durability makes linen a naturally more sustainable fabric.
Developed without the use of pesticides, insecticides and herbicides the use of organic cotton reduces serious damage towards the environment, human and animal health. This process also saves significant quantities of water. Organic cotton farming adapts to local conditions relying on natural ecological processes and cycles. Opposed to the use of chemicals and artificial elements like pesticides that cause conflicting results in conventional cotton farming.
Recycled cotton can be generally defined as converting cotton fabric into cotton fibre that can be reused in textile products. It is certified and has been cultivated without pesticides or fertilisers, preserving biodiversity, biological cycles and keeping our soil healthy and clean. It also reduces significant energy, water and the use of dyes. The savings are achieved through offsetting production of new materials. Since recycled cotton yarns most commonly are sourced from pre-consumer textile scraps that are sorted by colour, the yarns are already dyed. Recycled cotton is one the best premium fabrics because there is nothing better for the planet than working with any kind of reusable waste.
Vintage deadstock fabrics are sustainably sourced and often leftover stock from fabric mills, fashion designers, or film and TV productions.
