Hi lovely babes,
Today I have a new blog for you and not just one. As you probably know, all swimwear is made from recycled plastic to combat plastic pollution in the ocean, but now that the new yoga collection ‘She Moves’ is out, I would like to share with you how it is made and what the materials are exactly !
#1: Sweater and sweatpants
To start, I’ll start with the incredibly soft sweater and sweatpants. These are made from organic bamboo, but what exactly is organic bamboo ? Organic bamboo is textile made from bamboo fibers. The soft fabric is created because the organic bamboo fibers are fibers that are made from viscose rayon that are made from bamboo. This makes the fabric very fine and therefor soft. Organic bamboo is often used so that no plastic has to be processed during the making process.
Which color is your favorite ? Do you prefer forest green or washed black ? Or are you in love with the text on the drawstrings ‘’Save the ocean with TET.’’ ? You can combine the sets together or you can wear a t-shirt on the sweatpants or you can combine the sweater with a nice jeans or even our yoga pants !
#2: Yoga pants and yoga top
The flared yoga pants, tight yoga pants and the yoga top are all made of repreve nylon, but what exactly is repreve nylon ? REPREVE is the world’s number one brand of recycled performance fiber. The high quality fibers are made from 100% recycled materials, including post-consumer plastic bottles and pre-consumer waste. They are also certified and traceable. The REPREVE brand is created to foster a sustainable world by diverting plastic bottles from landfills and oceans. REPREVE collect and reuse also industrial waste that is starting with their own. Because the REPREVE brand is very sustainable, we like to work with the materials !
Which yoga pants is your favorite ? Do you prefer the flared one of are you more a type of person that choose the tight one ? Combine it with the yoga top, or a t-shirt and you have a lovely sport outfit !
#3: T-shirts and tank top
The ‘She Moves’ collection also includes two t-shirts and a super nice tank top. All three are made from organic cotton, but what exactly is organic cotton ? Organic cotton is generally defined as cotton that is grown organically in subtropical countries such as India, Turkey, China and parts of the USA from non-genetically modified plants, and without the use of any synthetic agricultural chemicals such as fertilizers or pesticides aside from the ones allowed by the certified organic labeling. It’s production is supposed to promote and enhance biodiversity and biological cycles. In the United States, cotton plantations must also meet the requirements enforced by the National Organic Program from the USDA in order to be considered organic. This institution determines the allowed practices for pest control, growing, fertilizing, and handling of organic crops.
Which t-shirt is your favorite ? The ‘’Love doesn’t make me cry, ocean pollution does’’, or the ‘’Namaste al damn day ? Or do you choose the namaste tanktop ? Combine them with our sweatpant, yoga pants or just a regular jeans !
I hope that you enjoyed reading and that you are now a little bit wiser about the materials we use for the new ‘She Moves’ collection and that you now share your knowledge and our products with your friends, family and colleagues !
A lot of kisses,
