Raw Material

This product is made primarily from Cotton and Silk.

Conventional cotton harvesting and manufacturing is associated with a comparatively very high water footprint and high use of chemicals and pesticides. So its eco impact is high. Despite being biodegradable often dyeing and finishing undermines its biodegradability.

Conventional silk  production is associated with comparatively extensive use of chemicals, very high footprint on water and energy consumption and on water pollution. It involves labour intensive techniques. Despite being biodegradable, it can be finished with chemicals that can hinder its biodegradability. So eco impact is very high.
