Fair about Fabrics! Noumenon eco friendly garments
"CHANGE THE WORLD, AND LOOK AMAZING WHILE YOU DO IT"
However, changing the world is rather ambitious and living a sustainable lifestyle comes with many challenges. That is why we decided to do the heavy lifting for you, so you can simply enjoy ethical, vegan and sustainable apparel.
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is recognized as the world’s leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres. Only textile products that contain a minimum of 70% organic fibres can become GOTS certified. All chemical inputs such as dyestuffs must meet certain environmental criteria.
THE BETTER COTTON INITIATIVEThe Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) covers environmental, social and economic sustainability. The BCI wants to make sure the cotton farmers learn how to be independent and encourage the scaling up of collective action to establish Better Cotton as a sustainable mainstream commodity.
ORGANIC COTTONComfort is key to Noumenon, which translates in creating athleisure made from 100% organic cotton. The look of organic cotton is clean and crisp, taking everyday styles to a higher level.
Made from recovered cotton waste. A regenerated fiber (the ultrafine, silky fibers that stick to the seeds of the cotton plant after it’s been ginned) that has been dissolved in a solution of ammonia and copper oxide.
RAMIE, THE HIMALAYAN GEM
Having a silky luster and a beautiful drape, this fabric is comfy yet feminine and therefore perfect for Noumenon. With their luminous and shimmering look, Ramie fibres are one of the oldest natural vegetable fibres.
LYOCELL/TENCELNoumenon aims to create naturally soft and lightweight garments where the keyword flowing forward plays an extensive role. An alternative to silk, Lyocell, better known as Tencel, is a cellulose made from wood pulp. The use of Lyocell therefore embodies luxury and femininity.
