Eco Terms & Definitions

ECOVERO RAYON

Derived from certified renewable wood sources using an eco-responsible production process by meeting high environmental standards, ECOVEROTM fibers tailor to a sustainable lifestyle, contributing to a cleaner environment. ECOVERO fibers generates 50% lower emissions and water impact then generic viscose and are produced using sustainable wood and pulp pulled from renewable resources and responsibly managed forestation.

ECOVERO VISCOSE

Derived from certified renewable wood sources using an eco-responsible production process by meeting high environmental standards, ECOVEROTM fibers tailor to a sustainable lifestyle, contributing to a cleaner environment. ECOVERO fibers generates 50% lower emissions and water impact then generic viscose and are produced using sustainable wood and pulp pulled from renewable resources and responsibly managed forestation.

TENCEL MODAL

Produced from sustainably sourced wood, TENCEL Modal is known for its softness and high flexibility. TENCEL Modal is more resistant to shrinkage and pilling as well as using less dyes. Similar to TENCEL Lyocell, manufacturing TENCEL Modal requires less energy and water during production and recycles water and chemicals during the process resulting in less waste.

RECYCLED COTTON

Made from repurposed cotton that would otherwise end up in a landfill, recycled cotton uses less energy, water and dye by upcycling a product that has already been processed. The largest volume of recycled cotton sources is produced through pre- consumer waste, such as cutting scraps.

RECYCLED POLYESTER

Helping to keep plastics out of landfills, recycled polyester is made from PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) material such as plastic bottles. Converting PET into recycled polyester requires much less energy than manufacturing traditional polyester. Choosing recycled polyester also lessens our reliance on crude oil and natural gas, both used for traditional polyester production.

ORGANIC COTTON

Grown without fertilizers and pesticides, organic cotton is manufactured with practices that promote biodiversity and soil health. From seed preparation to printing, the entire manufacturing process of organic cotton is globally minded and meets strict federal regulations.

100% TURKISH COTTON

Turkish cotton is sustainable, eco-friendly and user-friendly. Due to its high standards of performance and of function, Turkish Cotton require no heavy and harmful chemical processing to get a lot of qualities such as softness, absorbency.

OEKO-TEX

Oeko-Tex certifies non-hazardous end-products and all of their components. Products that carry the Standard 100 label have been tested and proven free of harmful levels of toxic substances. 

TENCEL

Tencel is made of cellulose fibre, made from dissolving pulp and then reconstituting it by dry jet-wet spinning. The fibre is used to make textiles for clothing. It is sustainable because it is made from wood sources which makes it biodegradable & compostable. Tencel is considered one of the most sustainable fibers.

FAIR TRADE

Trade between companies in developed countries and producers in developing countries in which fair prices are paid to the producers.

LINEN

Linen is made from flax plants which does not need any pesticides or fertilizers to grow. It is a sustainable material that does not harm the environment. In its natural state (without dyes) it is biodegradable.

TENCEL

Tencel is made of wood pulp (birch, beech, spruce, and eucalyptus) and made into a fiber.  This fiber is both biodegradable and compostable.  These qualities make tencel fabric sustainable. 

BAMBOO

Bamboo is a fast growing grass/tree and does not need pesticides or fertilization and very little water to grow. When bamboo is cut, it regenerates which makes it a sustainable source. Bamboo is biodegradable & compostable.
