What is viscose?

Originally known as "artificial silk", viscose is increasingly used in fashion for its many benefits. It is a type of rayon, a natural material made from cellulose obtained from wood pulp or cotton (Mros, 2019). However, viscose is neither natural nor synthetic, since it is chemically treated. The wood pulp is mixed with a solvent to subsequently make fibers. Attention! The solvent may turn out to be very chemical. What can ensure the ecological aspect are certifications.

What is linen?

Linen is one of the oldest fibers in the world. Indeed, this fiber was initially used to wrap Egyptian mummies 3,000 years BC. (Eco Loco, 2017).

We really like linen for its eco-responsible aspect. Moreover, its ecological footprint is small since no fertilizers or pesticides are necessary for its cultivation.

This textile is much appreciated for its thermoregulatory and hypoallergenic properties, in addition to being very resistant ( Eco Loco, 2017).

What is Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification?

Oeko-Tex certification guarantees the eco-responsibility of the fabric in its production method. The objective of this label is to allow consumers and businesses alike access to ecological fabrics without chemical substances harmful to health, in addition to taking the environment into account.

Attention! Oeko-Tex does not mean organic. An organic fabric can be Oeko-Tex certified, just as an artificial fiber such as polyester can be. In all cases, this certification guarantees the eco-responsibility of the fabric in its production method.

Warning 2! There are different Oeko-Tex certifications. Although this label takes into account many criteria, it is recommended to look for Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification, which covers all processes through to the finished product.
