Recycled Polyethylene Terephtalate comes from plastic that has already had a prior life, such as plastic drink bottles. We have worked carefully to create RPET fabric that not only feels fantastic to touch, but is also durably water & stain repellent.
We use C6 DWR treatment - we realize that it's not the ideal solution, but until we can find a similarly reliable environmentally safe alternative, we are using the best balance we can find between utility and sustainability.
Organic cotton is cotton grown in an environment where no pesticides, chemical fertilizers or herbicides have been used for a minimum of 3 years. Dyes used to color this fabric are also eco-friendly & azo free.
Rather than use virgin silk, we create our own silk using high-end dupion silk remnants from the home furnishings industry. As with the cotton, the dyes for silk are also eco-friendly & azo-free.
