When RebelRoot contacted us at Twig and Boat , one of the first things that came to our minds when we saw their fashion line was, "Wow. We love the designs on the scarves and shirts." After some digging around, our on-the-surface impression of the company quickly grew into a much deeper love affair. Why? For starters, their fabrics are simply amazing and the RebelRoot line is made using the highest standards of fair trade and ethical fashion.
Tencel is the most environmentally friendly man-made cellulosic fibre available today. It is produced exclusively from the wood pulp of Eucalyptus trees certified by the Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC), and the fibre carries the Pan-European Forest Council (PEFC) quality seal.
We work with Gots certification. Only textile products that contain a minimum of 70% organic fibres can become GOTS certified. All chemical inputs such as dyestuffs and auxiliaries used must meet certain environmental and toxicological criteria.
The film highlights inspections, certification and lab analysis work in textile production sites all over the world and addresses the standard's benefits for both the industry and consumers.
