Raw Material

This product is made primarily from Cotton and Linen.

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.

Linen (Flax) fibre, commonly known as linen it comes from a very productive plant where the bast is used for the manufacturing of the fibre and the seeds can be used to produce linseed oil. It can be grown on land that is not suitable for food crops. It is biodegradable, but finishings and dyes can hinder it. Conventional flax production is associated with the use of pesticides and water pollution therefore its eco impact is high.
