Types of fabric
1. We use natural and bio-degradable fibers, such as mercerized long-staple 100% cotton. They are more tightly woven with increased durability and sheen, easy and comfortable against the skin.
2. We use Tencel-lyocell fibers (certified Tencel (TM), a sustainable bamboo fiber with a silky feel. Regenerated from wood pulp, the production of Tencel reduces water pollution as raw cellulose is dissolved in an amine oxide solvent which is non-toxic and reusable.
3. We use polyester-blends for sturdier garments such as jackets and trousers. We believe that different product groups have different needs, and that the end-usage is just as important. These are easy-care-wear pieces that don't require as much washing, and perform other functions such as water-repellant needs or provide stretch. We are currently sourcing for recycled polyester alternatives.
4. Our fabrics are sourced directly from an established factory in Kyoto, Japan, where we can have answers regarding fiber content, manufacturing process, and fabric quality.
