An Environmentally Friendly Closet….continued.
Hello Fancy People! Last week I wrote a little about how to achieve a more sustainable wardrobe. Layers Squared was my featured brand for the blog post because of their fantastic use of sustainable fibers. Their blends of organic cotton, hemp and silk fibers are perfect for stepping up your sustainability game. This week I will continue to write about sustainability in the fashion industry and I will be featuring FluffyCo as the sustainable brand of the week.
The most sustainable products are not necessarily those that are natural. How natural fibers and materials are grown, watered, fertilized, chemically sprayed and processed may significantly diminish their sustainability. Therefore, it is important to understand the full process of how textile fibers and fabrics are made and manufactured.
Also, keep in mind that there are degrees and mixtures of good and bad in many manufacturing processes. For example, textile fibers or fabrics that are made from recycled material, use less energy, less water or use less harmful chemicals, and are more sustainable choices than those that don’t. Therefore, by making sustainability a factor in what you buy, you put pressure on manufacturers to become more sustainable in their products. And, by becoming more sustainable in your purchasing habits, you’ll also have an influence on fashion.
FluffyCo is a small business committed to producing apparel, accessories, and decor through great design and sustainable production. The brand is based in San Francisco and does most of their production in the USA. FluffyCo production is sweatshop-free, and many items are hand-assembled in their San Francisco studio.
The FluffyCo tote bag, sold at Fancy Tiger of course, is a beautiful addition to any bag collection. Made in the USA, it is cut from organic cotton canvas, printed with water-based dye and completed with American leather straps.
