ABOUT THE FABRICS
WHAT IS VISCOSE?
Viscose is a material known as a semi-synthetic. Materials like cotton, wool, and silk are natural and come directly from animals, while materials like polyester and nylon, made from crude oil, are considered synthetic. But viscose is somewhere in between. Semi-synthetic materials, like viscose, are made plant cellulose, but it is processed in such a way that the fiber is no longer considered fully natural. Many different kinds of plant cellulose can be used to create viscose fabric, for example, Royal Apparel and ONNO use bamboo and hemp since both plants are resilient and often considered low-impact crops.
HOW IS ORGANIC COTTON DIFFERENT FROM REGULAR COTTON?
Growing conventional cotton uses a lot of pesticides, insecticides, water, and land, making it a very stressful crop for both farmers and soil to grow. Organic cotton refers to cotton grown without the use of chemicals and synthetic pesticides. Chemicals used to grow cotton can be toxic to humans and soil, as well as expensive for farmers, so growing organically reduces the negative impact it has on farmers and soil. Royal Apparel only uses cotton that has been grown organically. Both Royal Apparel and ONNO use organic cotton in their products. ONNO’s organic cotton is even Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified.
CLOTHES MADE FROM RECYCLED PLASTIC BOTTLES?!
Much of the clothing you are used to wearing is already made from plastic; polyester, acrylic, and nylon are all essentially plastic. While clothing from plastic bottles may some uncomfortable and strange, it is in fact much like what you are used to, but more environmentally conscious. To create this material, plastic bottles are collected, turned into flakes, melted, and, finally, spun into thin threads. These threads are what is woven into garments. In the case of Clothes Made From Scrap, they are spun with reclaimed cotton for an extra unique and soft textile.
