Eco- Lux Fibers Bamboo Bamboo fibers add softness, breathabity, temperature regulation and moisture absorption properties to fabrics. Bamboo fibres biodegrade at a faster rate than petroleum-derived fibers like polyester. Soy Soy crops do not require the pesticide use required by crops of conventional cotton. Soy yarns are made from the husks of the soy bean, a byproduct of the tofu industry. Resulting fabrics containing soy are ultra-soft, breathable, and have excellent moisture absorption properties. They also biodegrade at a faster rate than petroleum-derived fabrics like polyester. Hemp Taken from the outer stock of the plant, hemp fibers have traditionally been used to make strong fabrics. Fabrics containing hemp are breathable and easily absorb moisture. Hemp crops do not require the pesticide and herbicide use required by crops of conventional cotton and are more sustainable and biodegradable than petroleum-derived fabrics like polyester. Organic Cotton Organic cotton is produced under stringent regulation and must always be certified by an appropriate third party . It is grown using methods and materials that have a low negative impact on the environment. Organic production also maintains soil fertility and does not require the use of harmful chemicals required by crops of conventional cotton. Tussah Silk (Wild Silk) Wild silk worms spin cocoons in oak tree orchards and are allowed to eat their way out the cocoon before the cocoons are collected for the silk fibers. Because tussah silk does not undergo the processes required for cultivated silk, it is considered to have less of a negative environmental impact. Lyocell (Tencel) Made from cotton linters and wood pulp, Lyocell is made using a process that recycles production materials instead of flushing them into the environment. The resulting fiber and fabrics are ultra-soft and breathable.
