WE CARE ABOUT OUR CHOICES
Viscose is a regenerated cellulose fiber made from chemically treated wood pulp.
Regenerated cellulose fibers are made by taking a natural raw material such as wood, grass or leftover cotton and cutting it up and treating with solvents or other chemicals to be broken down to a fiber that can be spun into a thread.
Viscose has a lightweight, silky drape and is smooth to be touch. The term ''viscose'' refers specifically to the solution of wood pulo that is turned into the fabric. It is a soft and breathable fiber loved by many.
Cotton garments are popular and loved by many of our consumers. It is soft and comfortable, and if woven right, the durability is high on both fabric and dye.
Cotton derives from the cotton plant and is all around the world. Cotton is a very water consuming plant and is often protected from insects by using pesticides. Cotton can always be treated with GMO's, to ensure a larger outcome in the individual plant.
Organic cotton on the other hand is grown without the use of toxic chemicals. This includes pesticides and GMO's (genetically modified organisms). This makes the growth and cultivation of organic cotton better for biodiversity and protects the soil.
Polyester is a synthetic fiber made from crude oil, then added chemicals. Being made from crude oil, makes this part of the most polluting industry in the world. Also, polyester dyes are far from environmentally friendly - in fact, they're toxic.
Polyester is a very strong synthetic fiber, which works very well in outerwear. Polyester garments are popular because they do not stretch or winkle, bring flexibility and comfort, not do they shrink, and they are easy to wash.
However, these qualities come with a significant cost.
