- NOTES

Why linen? The finest 100% linen is one of the purest cloths there is. It is light and comfortable, and has a coolness and absorbency that make it ideal for sunny days. It is an ideal fabric for children's sensitive skins and especially good for those with skin conditions, such as allergies and eczema, because it has a natural pH balance. Linen is very environmentally friendly. It comes from flax and every part of the plant is used. The finest fibers are used to make linen fabrics and the by-products are used to make everything from oil to cattle feed to bank notes and fiber board. Waste is minimal and any chemicals used are always fully treated before disposal.


VIVA LA COULEUR

Fashionology More important than geology and biology. Fashionology. Magenta and hot pink shades of vogue and a la mode personify total perfection on glitzy satin with extravagant trim. Effervescent orange and golden yellow hues of modish chic and popular rage suggest rich flavor on a landscape of alluring moire. Bright blue gives added depth to floral appliques. A world immersed in fashion. Fashionology.

Why Cotton? For all of it’s natural state as a fiber, cotton had become over the years a rather unfriendly to the environment crop. That’s changing. Over the past few decades, cotton growers have reduced their need for pesticides by 50%. They’ve cut back on their use of irrigated water by 45%. And they produce substantially higher yields on virtually the same acreage. Research has played a significant role in developing uses for the cotton plant, including its byproducts, thereby reducing and eliminating what had once been considered to be bio-waste. Need we mention how comfortable and breathable cotton is, particularly in the spring and summer heat?


ECO COUTURE Eco Couture Ecological, innate couture. Eco Couture Saturations of visceral and intuition are paired on gabardine and poplin, evoking a grounded sense of stability. Earthy, camouflage print gives an aptitude of sensibility to supple silk dupioni silhouettes. Hues of true nature draw attention to subtle finishes and accentuate trim. Existing naturally, overtly, and without pretense. Eco Couture.

Why bamboo? Bamboo is an eco-friendly, sustainable crop that grows wild without the aid of fertilizers or pesticides. Bamboo fabric is naturally antibacterial, antifungal and antistatic. Bamboo absorbs water 3-4 times better than cotton, keeping skin comfortable, rather than sticky, in summer weather. And, Bamboo stays 2-3 degrees cooler in hot weather & warmer in cold.
