Raw Material

This product is made primarily from Polyester and Silk.

Polyester fibre is manufactured using comparatively carbon intensive non-renewable sources and involves an extensive chemical process. It is associated to microplastic releases in water during after-use care. It is not biodegradable but is recyclable. So eco impact is high.

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.
