Fabrics & Sustainability

For our T-shirts we have chosen a really good and durable quality – a combination of 92% organic cotton of theOEKO-TEX®  standard and 8% lycra. We only use OEKO-TEX® cotton for our T-shirts. OEKO-TEX® is a voluntary labeling scheme for textiles. The labeling ensures consumers against 300 hormonal disruptive and health hazardous components and makes it easier to select clothing without toxic chemicals. OEKO-TEX® is a recognized international standard that poses comprehensive requirements to the manufacturers that participate in the scheme.

As a consumer the OEKO-TEX® label assures you that the product has been tested free of a number of toxic and environmentally hazardous components often used in conventional textile manufacturing. The OEKO-TEX® is the most widespread labelling scheme and thereby also the most known among consumers. With the title “trust in textiles” the Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX® aims at making it easier and more transparent for consumers to select clothing and textiles that are better for the environment and health.

More precisely the products are tested for more than 300 environmentally disturbing and health hazardous componentsand only products that are free from these components or stay under very strict limits can use the label.

Synthetic fibers

Many consumers are hesitant about synthetic fibers and have a negative conception about their qualities, but they have many good attributes. Alone they can be very strong fibers and they can enhance the durability significantly in textiles made of mixed fibers. Besides the good, effective attributes they also are recyclable and thereby sustainable.
There are probably not many who think about sustainability when it comes to synthetic textiles but they can be recycled. The fibers can be reused and used for new textiles again and again.
Synthetic fibers can be used alone or mixed with other fibers. 
  • Sweat and fluid diverting
  • High durability
  • High wear resistance
  • Fast drying capacity
  • Low wrinkle ability
  • Low shrinkage ability
  • Good to mix with other fibers
Synthetic fibers contribute in blended textiles with:
  • Higher durability
  • Less wrinkle and shrinkage ability
  • Easier maintenance
  • Dries faster
  • Longer durability
  • Colorfastness
In a climate and sustainability perspective much can be gained by recycling of polyester in clothes manufacturing. Experts claim that recycling of polyester can reduce energyconsumption and carbon dioxide emissions significantly compared to new production.
