Fabrics & Environment

The fabrics used are from suppliers that guarantee their ecological condition. Therefore, they are required organic certifications of textiles, from harvesting of the raw materials, through a socially and environmentally responsible manufacturing. This are some of the materials we are using:


Tencel 
Tencel Lyocell (known as 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.

Why is it so Nice ?
Amazing moisture absorption: Tencel will absorb relative humidity based on temperature, ensuring your skin is always comfortable. It is exceptionally soft, and will appeal to those with skin sensitivities. Also, Tencel is very resistant to stretching and wrinkling. And machine washable.

Why is Tencel Special?
Tencel is very sustainable because its made only with 1 natural chemical, but what makes it special is that this natural chemical is re-used perpetually, which minimizes the impact on environment and the use of water required is very minimum. This is very important as water is a key resource, as you know.
The environmental press has often heralded Tencel as a new fiber that represents a milestone in the development of environmentally sustainable textiles.




100% Organic Cotton 
Our 100% Organic Cotton is grown and cultivated in farms with fertile earth, free of pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers, and it’s weaved and produced without toxic chemicals. This means that our 100% Organic Cotton is very high quality as well as very respectful with the environment and also those who work to create it.

Why is it so Nice ?
100% Organic Cotton is like silk in appearance of great softness and comfort, with great perspiration characteristics.

Comfort for your skin and for the World
Its cultivation and processes are completely natural, which prevent from developing allergic reactions, eczema and dermatitis because we don’t use any chemical colouring.
Respect for health: During cultivation and the production of regular fabrics, the pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers used are absorbed by the skin during contact and they are directly delivered into the bloodstream, which transport these to the tissues and organs.

Bamboo
Viscose manufactured from bamboo is very environmental friendly in its processing, because the compounds used to breakdown its structure into fibers is 100% natural. The resulting Bamboo Viscose base fibers, are biodegradable and have antibacterial properties.

Why is it so nice?
Bamboo is amazing! It protects you against the radiations of the sun while its natural sheen is similar to silk or cashmere. Its softness and sheen remain after wash.
Also, because of its naturally soft fibers, it is has non itching properties for the skin. It’s antiallergic, and acts as a thermal regulator, providing warmth during winter and coolness during summer. Rebelroot uses the highest standards for Bamboo providers.

It really is an amazing, respectful and future-proof fabric. at Rebelroot, we are very excited to work with it, and support those who do in their cultures.
