The Soft Side
MATERIALS WE USE
We take a lot of pride in our manufacturing process. We’re always on the lookout for the newest fabric technology. We hand select our materials carefully, with an eye toward comfort, longevity, and sustainability. We don’t make anything unless we approve of every fiber. We’re proud to make items that are soft, comfortable, and long-lasting.
Why do we use bamboo? Bamboo is a breathable, soft material that’s perfect for fabrics that are worn close to the skin. Bamboo is also one of the fastest-growing plants in the world, which makes it easily harvestable. When bamboo shoots emerge from the ground, they reach full size in just a few months. And because bamboo threads are a cellulose fiber, they can biodegrade in normal soil conditions.
The world loves coffee, but what happens to all those coffee grounds? Well, combined with polyester, they can make yarn! A low-temp, high-pressure system combines coffee into the surface of the fibers, giving the material excellent odor control and the ability to block UV rays. S.Café® is also fast-drying. We think repurposing coffee grounds into products you’ll love to wear is a wonderful way to take care of our planet.
RENU aims to close the loop in clothing manufacturing by reusing worn clothing. Instead of wasting worn shirts, pants, and everything in between, the clothing is cut and processed to create new polyester fibers. We use RENU® because we love the idea of helping to create a more sustainable fashion industry.
