ORGANIC COTTON HAND PICKED

BAMBOO DENIM BAMBOO DOES NOT CAUSE ANY POLUTION TO THE ENVIRONMENT. THE NATURAL CELLULOSE FIBRE OF BAMBOO PLANTS GROWS VERY QUICKLY, SO IT IS EXTREMELY SUSTAINABLE, AND ITS PROPERTIES HAVE A NATURAL DEGRADATIONS PROCESS IN THE SOIL. KUYICHI USES THE FIBRE TO MADE A REVOLUTIONARY NEW FABRIC THAT HAS A GREAT STORY AND A BEAUTIFUL HAND FEEL.

25% OF ALL INSECTICIDES ARE USED GLOBALLY FOR GROWING COTTON. THESE CHEMICALS POLLUTE SOIL & WATER, KILL WILDLIFE AND MAKE PEOPLE SICK. ORGANIC COTTON IS GROWN ON CHEMICAL AND PESTICIDE FREE SOIL. NO CHEMICAL RELATED HEALTH RISKS, NO ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE AND NO POLLUTED SOIL. HARVESTING ORGANIC COTTON IS DONE BY HAND ISO BY MACHINE WHICH USES CHEMICALS TO OPEN THE BOLLS. ONLY CERTIFIED COTTON DESERVES THE NAME ‘ORGANIC’. OUR ORGANIC COTTON IS CERTIFIED, MOSTLY UNDER THE ‘SUSTAINABLE TEXTILE PRODUCTION’ PROGRAM BY SKAL INTERNATIONAL. THIS ASSURES ALL PROCESSES (FROM GROWING COTTON TO PRODUCTION OF THE GARMENTS) ARE CERTIFIED IN A CONTROLLED PROGRAM.


LINEN DENIM ORGANIC COTTON IS GROWN FREE FROM PESTICIDES; LINEN IS MADE FROM FIBRE OF THE FLAX PLANT AND WAS THE FIRST VEGETABLE FIBRE KNOWN TO MAN. THE PROCESS FOR CULTIVATING LINEN IS JUST AS CLEAN AS ORGANIC COTTON, BUT USES LESS WATER. BY USING THIS ORGANIC COTTON /LINEN FABRIC WE USE TWO SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS WHILE CREATING A GREAT PRODUCT, WITH A RICH HAND FEEL.

SPARE DENIM FABRIC LEFT OVERS FROM PREVIOUS COLLECTIONS ARE RE-USED AND TURNED INTO SPARE PRODUCTS. IN MANY CASES THE FABRIC IS SIMPLY DISCARDED OR LEFT TO REMAIN IN THE PRODUCTION FACTORY. IT IS OUR GOAL TO USE AS MANY EXISTING MATERIALS AS POSSIBLE, TO REDUCE WASTE DISPOSAL AND RESPECT THE ENVIRONMENT IN ALL POSSIBLE WAYS!


HEMP DENIM

NATURAL DYES

THE HEMP PLANT PROVIDES ONE OF THE STRONGEST AND MOST DURABLE NATURAL FIBRES AVAILABLE TODAY. GROWING HEMP IS MORE SUSTAINABLE THAN COTTON. THE PLANT GROWS VERY QUICKLY, DOES NOT NEED MUCH WATER AND PROVIDES 2.5 TIMES MORE FIBRE THAN THE REGULAR COTTON PLANT.

NATURAL DYES HAVE BEEN USED FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS AND ARE A FAVORABLE ALTERNATIVE TO SYNTHETIC DYES, AS THESE CREATE ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION AND CAN CAUSE HEALTH PROBLEMS TO THE WORKERS THAT HANDLE THEM.

HEMP HAS BEEN USED TO MAKE GARMENTS FOR MORE THAN THOUSANDS OF YEARS. TODAY KUYICHI USES A BLEND OF HEMP & ORGANIC COTTON THAT WILL LAST LONGER THAN COTTON FABRICS BUT STILL FEELS COMFORTABLE. THE HEMP KEEPS YOU INSULATED AND DRY, BUT WILL NOT WEAR AWAY.

NATURAL DYES CAN OFFER AN ECO-FRIENDLY ALTERNATIVE TO THE CONSUMER AND DO NOT CAUSE ALLERGIES. THE DYES ARE FROM REPLENISHABLE VEGETABLE, ANIMAL OR MINERAL SOURCES. IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES WITH A TEXTILE TRADITION, SUSTAINABLE HARVEST AND SALE OF THE DYE PLANT CREATE INCOME FOR MANY FAMILIES.
