58% HEMP - 21% ORGANIC COTTON - 21% TENCEL
+ - Why we choose hemp
Structurally hemp fiber is hollow and hygroscopic, a perfect combination of characteristics that give hemp yarns high thermal insulation and breathable capacity, making it similar to wool, cool in summer and warm in winter. Hemp allows to create fabrics that are more resistant to mechanical action than any other natural fabric. The fabrics made from the hemp plant have also other interesting properties: reflect ultraviolet rays, shield from electrostatic fields, do not conduct electricity, do not irritate the skin because they are hypoallergenic and keep bacteria away from the surface of our body because they are antiseptics. Resource and energy consumption are minimized, achieving a high level of environmental protection and resource conservation.
+ - Why we choose Tencel
TENCEL™ is a fiber obtained from wood cellulose, thanks to an environmentally friendly chemical process. The TENCEL™ fibers are naturally soft and smooth and a fabric made from them create a pleasant, almost calming sensation on the skin. Resource and energy consumption are minimized, achieving a high level of environmental protection and resource conservation.
+ - Why we choose organic cotton
Choosing organic cotton is important both to respect the environment and for the well-being of people. The cultivation of traditional cotton involves the 30% of the sold pesticides in the world, which are harmful for our planet and a possible source of allergies, because of their residues in the staples. The cultivation of organic cotton reduces gas emissions that alters the climate by 46%, reduces water consumption for irrigation by 91% and primary energy consumption by 62%. Instead, organic cotton is hypo-allergenic and ideal for people with allergies. Organic cotton is defended from insects by promoting birds and other enemy insects or, in any case, by using pesticides of natural origin.
+ - Sustanaible fabric
Natural fibers respect the environment and guarantee a combination of well-being, economy and ethics.
+ - Made in Italy
Natural fabrics are produced using yarns made of fibers already existing in nature, obtained through mechanical not chemical processes, that would change their structure. We buy our fabrics from Italian manufacturers who certify their entire supply chain. This fabric is purchased in Italy by a Company specialized in the production of sustainable fabrics. The innovation of finishing techniques ennobles the intrinsically precious characteristics of natural fabrics.
Garment made entirely in Italy, from the design to the production. This garment is made in a Turin tailor's shop, a laboratory which was born, and is still active today, to encourage the job placement of disadvantaged people. Thanks to Federica, the production manager, we made this garment exactly as we had designed it.
+ - Ethical production and transparency
The dignity of each worker, taking part in our garments production process, is extremely important for us. We personally check that our collaborators comply with all the protection requirements guaranteed by the European Union.
+ - Washing instructions
Hand wash or gentle machine wash - 30°, use the light spin cycle. We recommend not to use "industrial" detergents and we strongly advise against the use of fabric softener, since it causes damages to the fibers, the environment and the person. We suggest to replace it with white vinegar or citric acid, diluted in plenty of water. The use of neutral soaps as Savon de Marseille, lye, white vinegar or citric acid will better preserve your clothes, skin and the ecosystem. The garments made with natural fibers, if exposed to the air for a night after use, regenerate themselves by losing the impregnating smells and regain tone and softness. Always hang the garment out of the warmer sunlight.
