Conscious Fashion & Feeling for Ethical & Sustainable fabrics
Do you have a fashion conscious? Are you a fashion addict and can’t stop purchasing clothing?
Both are compatible as long as when purchasing, you choose for brands designing clothes with sustainable and ethical fabrics.
What do we mean by ethical & sustainable fabrics? Here a list of some of the fabrics:

- Bamboo: Bamboo is not only super soft, breathable, and antimicrobial when spun into fiber but it’s also an incredibly renewable resource. You don’t have to kill the plant to harvest it and it grows remarkably fast. Besides all that, the bamboo saves water and produces more oxygen than trees.
- Organic cotton: It’s grown without chemicals, making it better for you, the farmers, and the environment. Working conditions are safe and hygienic, the pay is fair and raw material and final textile products meet stringent waste limits.
- Recycled synthetics: Recycled nylon, for instance, produces 90% fewer CO2 emissions than its virgin counterpart.
- Tencel: Made from dissolving wood pulp, sourced from sustainably managed eucalyptus plantations, Tencel is 50% more absorbent than cotton, it requires less energy and water than cotton and it is biodegradable
- Hemp: Used as a fiber by humans for thousands of years, similar to linen in feel and ability to keep you warm when it’s cold, cool when it’s hot and even protect you from UV rays. Great! Hemp can be one of the most eco-friendly fabrics: It uses 50%+ less water than cotton, requires no pesticides and can be converted into fabric sustainably.
