Although hemp fibres have traditionally been used in things like rope and sailing canvas, pure hemp actually has a feel and finish a bit like linen and can be beautifully soft when blended with other fibres like cotton. Even better, hemp is produced in a way that growing the natural fibres helps reduce the impact on the environment than other fibres.
Modal® is a fantastic fibre that's made from beechwood, and when blended into fabric it has softness, good drape and is comfortable for wearing. Modal® is produced in a way that reduces the impact on the environment. No wonder we're making more and more clothes from it. You'll find it in our clothing across lingerie, womenswear, menswear, childrenswear and also in homeware.
Tencel® is man-made fibre made from sustainable forests. The process of making it has a lower environmental impact, and the finished fibre is beautifully soft often and can be similar in look and feel to leather, suede or silk. Tencel has naturally excellent moisture management properties making it very comfortable to wear. Tencel® is the brand name owned by fibre manufacturer Lenzing, who are currently the only major producer.
Jute is produced in large quantities and second only to cotton. Because it has little need for fertilizer or pesticides, it has a lower environmental impact than many other natural fibres. You'll find items made with Jute in our homeware ranges.
