Leather mass-production is environmentally and socially costly. Animals farmed for leather and/or meat purposes are often treated very harshly and are also responsible for greenhouse gas emissions. Deforestation is also taking place to clear land for the animals to graze. The manufacturing process from the preservation to the finishing of the leather, consumes large quantities of fresh water while emitting dangerous chemical substances when the leather is tanned.
We fell in love with Piñatex® which is a plant fibre fabric with a texture that mirrors the special characteristics we love about leather. Piñatex® is a non-woven fabric made from discarded pineapple leaves. This fabric doesn't require new lands and its raw material is a byproduct from already existing Pineapple plantations in the Philippines. The production of Piñatex® is an optimisation of the pineapple harvesting which brings a greater income to the farmers when allowing them to fully utilise their crops. Due to its strong texture and durability, we see Piñatex® as the perfect option for long lasting products.All Piñatex is dyed with GOTS certified pigments.
100% Tencel™ Lyocell
TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers are extracted from sustainably grown wood using a unique closed loop system which recovers and reuses the solvents used, minimizing the environmental impact of production. Unique physical properties lead to their high tenacity profile, efficient moisture management and gentleness to skin.
TENCEL™ Modal fibers are extracted from naturally grown beech wood by an environmentally responsible integrated pulp-to-fiber process, which is self-sufficient in energy and recovers co-products from component parts of the wood. This flexible fiber is renowned for its exceptional softness.
Composed of natural material, all TENCEL™ standard Modal fibers are biodegradable and compostable under industrial, home, soil and marine conditions, thus they can fully revert back to nature.
Exhibiting high flexibility, TENCEL™ Modal wood-based fibers offer textiles a long-lasting quality of exquisite softness. Owing to the fiber’s sleek cross-section, TENCEL™ Modal fibers enhance the soft touch of fabrics even after repeated washing. Measurements and hand evaluations of softness show that TENCEL™ Modal fibers feel twice as soft as cotton. The softness of TENCEL™ Modal fibers lasts longer and is able to withstand repeated wash and dry cycles compared to cotton.

Every year, tonnes of plastic waste find their way to the oceans damaging the natural habitat of marine animals. As a responsible and sustainable brand, we want to support projects that recycle this plastic waste and also make sure that the fabric we use harm the environment as little as possible. For all our swimwear and activewear we use Econyl, which consists of 78% recycled polyester and 22% elastane. The polyester used for recycling is collected from abandoned fishing nets and carpet lint. The fabric is designed to meet the environmental demands for reducing the amount of plastic waste whilst also meeting a high quality standard with the necessary UV protection. The texture is soft, lightweight and flexible, which makes it a perfect material for our swimwear and activewear.All our swimwear and activewear are also Oeko-Tex certified.
Our premium Eco-suedes are made from post-industrial recycled polyester and post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, which help reduce plastic waste destined for landfills. This fabric is made using a pure recycling process and meets Oeko Tex Standard 100 certifications, which means it is free from organic solvents, odors, and environmental toxins such as formaldehyde, pesticides, chlorine, heavy metals, carcinogenic and allergy-inducing dyes.
The colours you see on our fabrics come from natural plant dyes. We work with a local family business in Bali who has many years of experience in working with different plant dying methods.
We take good care of the Earth when wrapping and sending your order. All of our products come in a 1 People signature box, that you afterwards can use for storing different items. This box and our instructions cards are made from recycled paper and colored with natural dyes. This production is conducted by a small factory in Bali. Our logo stickers, that come with the box, are made from bio-compostable paper. This manufacturing is run by a sustainable company in the UK. Some of the packages we send need to be wrapped in plastic.
