46% BAMBOO, 46% ORGANIC COTTON, 8% ELASTANE
Sourced from a UK Supplier who monitor their supply chains, standards & certifications. Knitted & dyed in Turkey. GOTS certified.
The origin of cotton is Aegean region of Turkey (Near İzmir).
This is what they say at the mill: 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.
The mill buys the yarn from this company - bamboo - OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 certified. The bamboo that we use is grown in China. Luxuriosly soft: Bamboo fabric is superbly soft and feels like a combination between silk and cotton. Regulates body temperature: Bamboo fabric clothing has tiny gaps which aids in ventilation meaning you stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Moisture Wicking: Bamboo fabric is three to four times more absorbent than cotton, allowing it to wick and absorb perspiration away from the body, keeping you dry and comfortable.
We have made a Zero Waste Scrunchie from off-cuts created during garment production, otherwise destined for the landfill.
MANUFACTURED IN THE UK
All our garments are manufactured in the UK. We work with one family owned and run factory in Nottingham that has been manufacturing jersey garments for over two decades. They have a small team.
We like the idea of keeping things simple. The intention is to make it easy to recycle ♲
We use recycled white tissue paper and kraft boxes. The paper parcel tape has a natural rubber based adhesive which can be left on the packaging sent for recycling.
We have purposely kept the gift boxes plain for re-use ♻️
