Super Jersey

Really tactile two way stretch super jersey. Made from 46% organic cotton, 46% bamboo viscose, 8% elastane. Bamboo makes for a very soft, odour resistant, anti fungal finish. Elastane gives two way stretch. Cotton gives durability. Combed cotton gives extra softness. Origin: Izmir, Turkey

Information taken from our fabric supplier in the UK:

ORGANIC COTTON

The origin of cotton is Aegean region of Turkey (Near İzmir).

This is what the mill says: We always obtain our own cotton from contracted farmers. Our spinning house is in Denizli. Depending on the quality or lead times we may use different knitting and dying houses placed in Denizli, İzmir or İstanbul. All facilities have to be certificated otherwise it is not possible to give GOTS certificate to the final items (fabric or clothes)

All of the facilities (Farms, Spinning, Knitting or even warehouse where the finished fabrics are controlled and packed) have to carry the responsibilities that certification requires. The certification is made by non-profit certification companies like ICEA or Control union.

 

BAMBOO VISCOSE

There's lots to know about bamboo, it grows freely without chemicals but the process of converting it to yarn uses chemicals. The same chemicals are used to make paper and soap. This is the company that makes our bamboo viscose fabric. http://www.liahren.com/
Our bamboo yarns are certified by OEKO-TEX 100 as being free from harmful chemicals. This is a good article about bamboo, viscose, Tence etc https://oecotextiles.wordpress.com/category/fibers/viscose/

Dyed bamboo is dyed in an OEKO-TEX certified dying unit. We take the view that it is far less harmful to people than conventional cotton growing.
