Let's look what fibers are in the composition:
Linen - This material has unique properties - it's fiber is tight and durable yet the material obtained from it is light, air permeable. Linen has anti-allergic properties making it all time favorite when manufacturing clothing. It easily absorbs liquid and because it is a natural fiber, dries quickly as well. From the beginning, linen fiber is a little bit hard, woody, but with using and washing it becomes windy, silky and pleasant on touch
Bamboo thread - The bamboo plant is fast growing, highly sustainable and is naturally organic. It does not require replanting after harvest but will regenerate from its rhizome root structure. Bamboo improves soil quality and helps to rebuild eroded soil. When processed into fiber or yarn mechanically-processed bamboo requires no chemicals harmful to workers or the environment and maintains its inherently anti-bacterial properties. Environmentally friendly, bamboo-based fabrics have a luxurious softness often compared with cashmere.
Lyocell (TENCEL®) -TENCEL™ branded lyocell and modal fibers are produced by environmentally responsible processes from the sustainably sourced natural raw material wood.Lyocell is a pioneer in the sustainable textiles industry, known as a more sustainable version of viscose. Lyocell is derived from forested wood (mainly eucalyptus trees), and an overall majority of our Lyocell is sourced from sustainable forestry (FSC-certified - which guarantees responsible felling and replanting of the trees). Most of our Lyocell is made by the Austrian producer Lenzing and is called Tencel™ Lyocell. LYOCELL IS SUSTAINABLE - The production is made in a closed loop process, meaning 99% of all chemicals and water is recycled instead of being released into the environment. The fibers are certified as compostable and biodegradable, and can therefore fully revert back to nature. There’s also a lot less water and land needed in production compared to the production of cotton, for example. The result is a beautiful material that’s soft, breathable, and durable.
