Eco-Fabrics


Tencel® (Lyocell)

Tencel® (Lyocell) is a natural fibre derived from dissolving wood pulp cellulose from the eucalyptus tree. Tencel® is soft and smooth on skin, breathable, naturally wrinkle-resistant and most importantly - environmentally sustainable. Tencel® is manufactured in a "closed loop" process using a non-toxic solvent - about 99% of the solvent is recovered and recycled, what is not is broken down in water treatment plants. This process uses just 1% of the total amount of water required to manufacture conventional cotton. No manufacturing process is 100% environmentally sustainable; however, just as nothing is perfect, we can still make a difference in our choices.

Beautiful cut and the fabric feels like butter!

Mud Silk

Mud Silk is silk that is dyed in a very unique and organic way. Once the silk fabric is ready to be finished, it is dyed with natural resources such as root, grass and vegetable/berry juices to achieve its colour. It is then washed several times with iron­bearing mud, a process that takes four weeks. The fabric is then laid out on the ground for a week where light rays from the sun and moon set the dye.

Rayon from Bamboo

Bamboo is a sustainable resource.  Rayon from bamboo is highly water absorbent and soft to touch. This creates the ability for easy wicking and is comfortable against the skin, leaving you cooler and drier than synthetics or cotton.  The smooth texture and natural luster leads to an excellent draping ability that is similar to silk but more practical since it is machine washable.  The bamboo plant itself grows quickly and does not require the use of pesticides and herbicides to thrive.  As a result, little irrigation is required and the quality of soil is improved.  There is little ground water pollution associated with it growth.

Wonderful! I wear it ALL the time! Perfect color

Certified Organic Cotton 

Kali Clothing Tencel Hoodie Made in USA

Organic Cotton is not only soft and comfortable to wear but also great for the environment. It is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment and without chemicals and without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, insecticides or defoliants. By reducing the amount of chemicals placed into the earth, we are decreasing pollution in the air and earth. Organic production systems replenish and maintain soil fertility, reduce the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilizers, and build biologically diverse agriculture. Third-party certification organizations verify that organic producers use only methods and materials allowed in organic production.

Hemp

Hemp production is one of the easiest to achieve since it requires no pesticides or herbicides.  Hemp requires little irrigation since it is able to nurture itself with deep subsoil moisture.  Hemp grows very quickly and produces a textile that is strong, lustrous and mildew resistant.  In addition hemp blocks the sun's UV rays, and becomes softer with use.

Amazing color and super soft! These really are the perfect tank top! I think I might end up with one in every color!

Modal® is a natural fibre derived from spinning wood pulp cellulose from beech trees. It is a type of rayon that is soft on skin, breathable as well as environmentally sustainable.  Modal® is manufactured in a "closed loop" process using a non-toxic solvent – about 99% of the solvent is recovered and recycled.

I received my cardigan a couple of weeks ago and I think I have worn it every day, or at least every other day, since then. It goes with everything!
