When we started this company we wanted to start making sustainable clothing, we started to learn more about it.
Every garment that is made needs to be carefully monitored from the start of production. The fabric you get to make the garment should be coming from a factory with sustainable practice certifications. Even the trims (buttons, zippers, etc.) and the dyeing process have to be inspected.
The method of producing linen fabric from the flax plant uses far less water than it does to produce the same amount of cotton. This makes it a more sustainable choice. Fewer pesticides are used to grow flax than in cotton growing, and linen fibres can be processed without the use of chemicals. Which is only going to be a good thing for the planet.
