Raw Material

This product is made primarily from Bamboo and PLA.

Viscose bamboo fibre production is associated with bamboo's natural habitat depletion and deforestation, regenerated cellulose from bamboo undergoes comparatively extensive chemical process in order to be transformed into fibre and about 50% hazardous waste from its production goes back into the environment. Eco impact is high.

PLA fabric , despite being derived from renewable sources such as cane sugar and corn, in terms of manufacturing undergoes an extensive chemical process and its eutrophication footprint is comparatively medium-high. So eco impact is high eco impact.
