Many of our customers have chemical sensitivities and need to know specifics about what our fabrics and trims are made of. We strive to make our clothing as pure and allergy-free as possible while still producing functional, contemporary styles with mainstream appeal. We hope the following information is helpful.
For additional information we suggest you search the web using any of the highlighted terms below.
The natural fibers in our fabrics are all organically grown - cotton, bamboo and hemp, which are not fumigated or treated with pesticides. The fiber is GOTS certified.
Our bamboo blend fabric is specifically 66% rayon from bamboo fiber. We have several fabrics that are 100% organically grown cotton.
Many of our fabrics contain 5%- 13% spandex for stretch and shape retention. Spandex does not contain latex.
On this website, every style has a fabric tab with an accurate description of fiber content.
None of our fabrics contain latex.
Most of our elastics are nylon. Some do contain latex but in most cases the elastic is enclosed in fabric and does not touch the skin. There are a couple of exceptions. The "Features" tab for every style states clearly whether the style is latex-free, has covered latex elastic, or uncovered latex elastic.
We use fiber reactive dyes which are low impact, non-toxic dyes and do not require heavy metal mordants. We do not use disperse or sulfate dyes.
The fabric and dye mills we use follow GOTS standards, using only approved compounds for knitting and dyeing our fabrics.
Some of our bra styles come with optional molded cups that fit into pockets of the bra. These cups are made of synthetic polyurethane foam with 100% polyester fabric on both sides. If used correctly, the cups do not come in contact with the skin.
We have been unable to find a commercially viable natural alternative.
For styles that are garment dyed, including stripes and marls and some cotton tops, we use 100% cotton thread. For styles that use dyed fabric – mostly the solid bamboo and cotton pant styles, as well as all lingerie, we use poly core thread that is surrounded by a layer of cotton.
