From organically grown cotton to sustainably sourced silk to recycled nylon, we’re committed to using fabrics that are better for the planet and better for the people who produce them.

BETTER COTTON INITIATIVE (BCI)
A not-for-profit organization that aims to make global cotton production better for the people who produce it, the environment where it grows and the future of the industry. Through BCI and its partners, farmers receive training on how to use water efficiently, care for the health of the soil and natural habitats, reduce use of the most harmful chemicals and apply decent work principles. Better Cotton is not physically traceable to end products—however, BCI Farmers benefit from the demand for Better Cotton in equivalent volumes to those we “source.”
This wool is not only washable, but it’s made without using chlorine in the processing. We’ve been working with this mill for over 15 years and are excited to keep reducing the environmental impacts.
To create this fabric, we work with Profits Fund Global, a mill that is bluesign® approved (which means they dye it without hazardous chemicals). The facility is also LEED® certified, meaning its manufacturing processes use less water and energy.
A 100 percent regenerated nylon yarn made from nylon waste, 50 percent postconsumer waste (like fishing nets and carpet fluff) and 50 percent preconsumer waste (like industrial scraps).
Viscose fibers made from sustainable wood and pulp, which are manufactured using up to 50 percent less energy and water than generic viscose.
A soft, smooth fiber made from sustainably managed forests. The production process recycles water and reuses 99 percent of the solvent involved.
Fibers manufactured from sustainably managed forests and processed using renewable energy.
