Sustainable Fabrics

Yoga takes you close to your true nature. We also need to follow the rules of nature, be true to ourselves and observe the natural environment. Living in harmony with nature, we need to follow the rules of nature, work with what it naturally provides and treat nature with dignity and respect.

Tencel

Tencel is known as the revolutionary future botanic fibre. Similar to linen it’s a man made regenerated cellulose fibre made from sustainable cultivated eucalyptus forests.

Sustainable

There are no chemicals in nature.

Cultivated forest land is used that is not suitable for food crops.

Uses 10-20 times less water than cotton.

Thanks to botanic principles, the more Tencel that is produced, the more trees are planted that convert carbon dioxide and water into wood and pure oxygen via photosynthesis.

Performance Properties

Unique natural moisture management

Flowing drape, similar to the appearance of silk

Hypo-allergenic

Soft and suitable for sensitive skin

Organic Cotton

Approx. 30% of all cotton in the world is genetically modified. GM cotton creates a health risk to wildlife and human health. GM cotton incurs extra financial burden to farmers. Green peace research in South India in 2009 showed that genetically modified cotton did not result insignificantly higher crop yield than organic cotton, but cost farmers twice as much to produce.

Sustainable

Produced without chemicals or GMOs.

Improves soil fertility and biodiversity, as crops can be rotated.

Natural, renewable and biodegradable.

Benefits the cotton producers in developing countries by avoiding using toxic pesticides.

Better control of water irrigation.

Bamboo

A fibre that is produced from original bamboo and maintains all the original qualities inherent in bamboo. It is very similar to linen both in molecular structure and fibre.

Sustainable

Bamboo are the fastest growing woody forms of grass in the world. Some species grow 1metre a day. They generally reach 35 metres tall.

The quick growth rate and the fact they can flourish in diverse climates, makes bamboo a highly sustainable and versatile resource.

Bamboo minimises CO2 and generates up to 35%more oxygen than equivalent forests of trees.

Very little water is used in the irrigation of bamboo. Bamboo is extremely hardy and can withstand drought, high temperatures and flood.

As a natural fibre, Bamboo is biodegradable in soil by micro-organisms and sunlight.

The amazing bamboo root system is not uprooted during harvesting, which allows the bamboo to help preserve soil and prevent soil erosion

Performance properties

Resilient and durable textile fibre.

Moisture wicking properties, highly absorbent.

Thermo-regulating, warm in winter and cool in summer.

Breathable.

Naturally bacteria inhibiting.

Excellent drape.

Post-Consumer Polyester

A typical example of post-consumer waste recycling is the polyester drink bottle recycling. Carbonated soft drinks bottles and water bottles made from PET are collected and delivered to recycling plants, where they are cleaned; chopped into small pellets, which are spun into man-made fibres, mainly staple fibre.

Sustainable

Carbon emissions associated with making polyester fibre from used PET bottles are only a fraction of the emissions associated with fibre made from virgin chemicals.

Long lasting strong fibres

Can be recycled again

Performance Properties

A good quality strong fabric

Great stretch memory

Will not pucker, warp, pill or fade
