eco friendly clothing

Fabric

Soy (also known as vegetable cashmere): luxurious and soft texture without the maintenance as cashmere. Gentle on skin and silky soft. Stretch in fabric. Stable fibers mean it will not shrink or distort. Absorption qualities allow perspiration to evaporate. Antibacterial. UV resistant.

Earth Friendly: Made from fibres that are spun from the “leftovers” of the food industry. Plant is easily renewable and fibre is very biodegradable (so eco-friendly you could compost old soy garments in your own backyard).

Organic Cotton: Believed to be softer than conventional cotton. Gentle on skin. No toxins.

Earth Friendly: Regular cotton accounts for 25% of the worlds insecticides and 10% of pesticides, but only 3% of land cultivated is cotton. That means a lot of chemicals are in a small amount of cotton. Organic cotton isn’t treated with harmful pesticides, insecticides, herbicides and GMOs, that affect workers, ecosystems and your child.

Hemp: Naturally resistant to mold and UV.  Retains it’s colour better than any other fabric. Hemp fibers are durable, preventing any distortion. Garments will hold their shape. The more hemp is worn/washed the softer it will become.

Earth Friendly: Hemp grows extremely fast. Yields 250% more fibre than cotton and 600% more fibre than Flax, meaning less land is needed to farm. Hemp plants leave rich, organic matter in the soil, for excellent cultivation for years to come.

*All fabrics are ethically sourced and responsibly made


Production

Presentation

At Plaid & Paisley packaging is done mindfully and with intent. Every order is hand packaged with immense care and attention. Each item is closely inspected for unsightly flaws, steamed with lavender infused water to remove wrinkles, carefully wrapped in our signature paper, and set in one of our embossed boxes or envelopes. A Plaid & Paisley lavender scent satchel is placed in every package as a little extra, along with a handwritten note. Use the lavender satchel in littles drawers to keep their clothes smelling lovely.
