MATERIALS WE USE
We choose each material with intention and care to produce a responsibly made product. When sourcing for our designs, we priorities cruelty- free, ecologically certified, recycled, and biodegradable fibers, and we do not use any fur, leather, or feathers. Benedetti Life is PETA- Approved. We want to protect animals, water, and soil, reduce waste and re-use plastic before it ends up in our oceans. We print carefully selected textiles with Eco-friendly water-based dyes. Digital printing reduces wastewater because the fabric doesn’t need as many wash/rinse cycles, and there are no screens or colourant baths that require cleaning.
Piñatex® is an innovative natural textile made from pineapple leaf ﬁbre. This is a by-product of existing agriculture, and its use creates an additional income stream for farming communities who otherwise rely on a seasonal harvest. Once the fibre has been stripped from the leaf the leftover biomass is retained for use as a natural fertiliser or biofuel. Piñatex® was developed as a sustainable alternative to both mass-produced leather and polluting synthetic materials, offering a better choice for a better future.
Lyocell is a revolutionary eco-friendly and economical fibre, one spun from a renewable resource, pulp from eucalyptus wood. The solvents used in the pulping process are recycled. The dyeing process requires much less dye than with cotton. This unique closed-loop production process makes Lyocell the fibre of the future.
RECYCLED TEXTILES MADE WITH PLASTIC BOTTLES
Ecology and environmental impact are keywords for the companies that supply our yarn. The firms’ creativity and know-how are expressed in this textile, made from recycled polyester and the recycling of ordinary plastic bottles. The resulting fibre is then blended with regenerated cotton fibre sourced from industrial waste.
Hemp is one of the oldest and most ecologically friendly fabrics, and our natural organic hemp fibre both breathes and is biodegradable. Hemp is also a renewable resource which grows quickly without herbicides, fungicides or pesticides.
Our bamboo is an incredibly soft, smooth, comfortable, luxurious and strong material. It is antistatic and has excellent wicking properties, is antibacterial and a good solution for skin problems. It is highly breathable in hot weather, and also keeps the body significantly warmer in the cold than traditional fabrics. As a plant it thrives naturally without using any pesticides or fertilisers, and is biodegradable.
We choose to use certified organic cotton fabric, which is grown without the use of pesticides or synthetic fertilisers, and requires less irrigation as it relies mainly on rainwater. We source only Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified organic cotton fabric, widely recognised as the gold standard of sustainable processing for clothing and textiles.
