This Mother's Day you can give back to your mother and Mother Earth by gifting eco-friendly fashion which is lusciously soft and will keep your hot mom incredibly cool in the summer.
Below is a list of the top 6 eco-friendly organic materials that we use in the a. ell design collection:
- With a natural sheen and silk like quality, bamboo is super soft and comfortable. A unique feature of bamboo fibers are that they contain an antibacterial agent that resists bacteria from growing. This keeps you clean and odor free, ideal for an active summer. Bamboo is also thermal regulating – cool in the summer and warm in the winter making it an excellent choice of fabric that can be worn all year round. Four times more absorbent than cotton, bamboo helps to evaporate moisture quickly and effectively.
- Hemp fabric has a luxurious texture and the fabric softens with each washing, without fiber degradation. In other words, hemp doesn’t wear out, it wears in. Compared to synthetic fabrics, Hemp does not hold odors due its antibacterial properties and it’s great at wicking away moisture. Hemp is also super sustainable and a favorite here at a. ell design.
