Dear eco conscious clients,
Choosing the right fabric for our line was a delicat task.
At Hug of Nature environment, health and comfort are our 3 top priorities and we have based our choice to combine all these elements.
Earth friendly: According to our research there is no fabric that has 0 impact on the environment. To transform fibers into fabric it will take more or less water, energy and some treatment to make it soft and wearable otherwise it would be so rough and uncomfortable. To diminish the foot print on the environment our selction include fibers that do not require pesticides or chemical fertilizer and that use less water to process such as organic coton, organic Bamboo and promodal from lenzing.
Healthy: some of the pesticides and chemicals use to grow plants and transform them into fabric will stay in the yarns causing allergic reaction, rash, intoxication of our skin and body . Therefore we choose fibers from plants that don't need any chemical to grow and the process to turn it into fabric does not use any toxic prducts . Also the dyes we use do not contain heavy metal. All this is especially important when we are sleeping because it is our most intimate time and this is when our cells recover and rejuvenate. During this precious time it is advised to avoid any contact with hazardous products it could eventually seep through our skin into our entire system and make us ill.
Comfort: the term "sleeping like a baby" is one of our mission because we believe that comfort is a must to unwind from a stressful day. that's why we have choosen among the most tender fibers available in the ecological arena making our clothing ultra soft and soothing....a real Hug of Nature
Here are our choices that combine our three priorities
ProModal was created through the combination of Lenzing Modal and TENCEL, which are two premium fibers coming from farms trees in Austria. The Modal has a soft quality, whereas the TENCEL is highly functional. The TENCEL is good for absorbing moisture, regulating temperature, reducing bacteria growth, and prevention of skin discomfort. The combination is magical. ProModal Lenzing is based on natures principle of photosynthesis, and has been carefully manufactured in order to maintain integrity in remaining eco-friendly.
Modal and Micro Modal
MicroModal is a natural fiber made by Lenzing from European beechwood farm tree It is soft, silky, shiny, and these qualities allow garments to drape, and caress ones body as if they were wearing nothing at all. The process used to transform the wood in fiber is ethical and leaves a very small footprint on the environment. which is a key factor for our philosophy, there is no pestcicides and it takes much less water to make than cotton. These qualities make it an optimal choice for producing flowing tops, pajamas, intimates and lounge wear.
Bamboo is not only organic, but it is also the world’s most sustainable resource! Bamboo grows quickly, produces more oxygen than trees, and consumes high amounts of nitrogen, which allow for high water retention that prevents runoff. Bamboo is good for absorbency and has been known to be even softer than cotton! Thus, bamboo is good for the body and for the world.
Organic cotton is grown from non-genetically modified plants. This benefits the individual who wears organic cotton because chemicals that can cause irritation of skin have been eliminated. Even more, it benefits the world! Non-organic cotton that is grown using genetic modification accounts for at least 10% of the worlds pesticides! Choose organic. Your body and your planet will thank you.
All our dyes are certified low impact, it contains no heavy metal and the dying procedure follows the strict rules of California therefore minimizing the footprint on the environment.
