Times have changed and so have our fashion needs however, buying well made clothes will never go out of style.
So why should you go out of your way to buy a bamboo dress? Why is organic cotton is so much more expensive than conventional cotton? And what on earth is tencel?
Let’s talk sustainable fabrics
The most popular fabric of them all, but also the most environmentally damaging, cotton is versatile and naturally breathable; everyone loves a basic cotton tee!
Organic cotton offers a superb alternative and describes cotton grown using a technique which lowers the impact on the environment.
We’re talking no toxic pesticides, synthetic fertilisers, chemicals, and definitely no sign of genetically engineered seeds.
When searching for organic cotton, keep in mind this does not always ensure it is fair-trade- someone’s got to harvest the cotton. The dyes used to colour your garment may also ruin the ‘sustainable’ label of your garment without you knowing. If you’re unsure about dyes, stick to the shades organic cotton is naturally grown in: light browns, pastel/pale greens, and creams.
