IT’S IN THE BAG

Fabric Glossary

In case you didn’t know, we’re pretty obsessed with fabric. We’ve custom-developed over 100 fabrics and primarily use these materials.

  • Hypoallergenic
  • Recyclable
  • Biodegradable
  • No new materials
  • TENCEL® Lyocell

    The 100% biodegradable super fabric.

    Softer than silk and cooler than linen. This is one of the most sustainable fabrics out there. It’s made in a closed-loop system, so 99% of the chemicals/solvents used in the process are recovered and recycled with minimal waste and very low emissions. Fiber Type: Cellulosic

    • Breathability

    • Shrink-Resistance

    • Colorfastness

    • Hypoallergenic

    • Wrinkle-Resistance

    • Durability

    • Sustainability

  • TENCEL® Modal

    Made from beechwood pulp, a sustainable source of raw material.

    Throwing some Modal in the mix helps fabrics keep their shape and color. Also a great eco-friendly choice — Modal requires no artificial irrigation or planting (so it’s CO2 neutral). Fiber Type: Cellulosic

    • Breathability

    • Shrink-Resistance

    • Colorfastness

    • Hypoallergenic

    • Wrinkle-Resistance

    • Durability

    • Sustainability

  • Cotton

    Probably the most well-known material.

    This soft, fluffy staple fiber is known for being incredibly versatile and breathable Fiber Type: Natural

    • Breathability

    • Shrink-Resistance

    • Colorfastness

    • Hypoallergenic

    • Wrinkle-Resistance

    • Durability

    • Sustainability

  • Supima Cotton

    AKA the “cashmere” of cotton.

    This stuff is primo when it comes to cotton. It’s only grown in the USA, and a longer staple length than normal cotton, so it’s twice as strong. Fiber Type: Natural

    • Breathability

    • Shrink-Resistance

    • Colorfastness

    • Hypoallergenic

    • Wrinkle-Resistance

    • Durability

    • Sustainability

  • Upcycled Cotton

    The main material in our Re-Spun fabric. Learn more about Re-Spun

    Thousands of you gave us old shirts. We broke down those old tees to the fiber level and turned them into one-of-a-kind recycled yarn Fiber Type: Synthetic

    • Breathability

    • Shrink-Resistance

    • Colorfastness

    • Hypoallergenic

    • Wrinkle-Resistance

    • Durability

    • Sustainability

  • Polyester

    Basically, plastic fiber.

    Since it’s made from plastic, polyester is mildew-resistant and extremely strong, so it can withstand years of wear and tear. Party bonus: It’s also recyclable (just like plastic bottles). Fiber Type: Synthetic

    • Breathability

    • Shrink-Resistance

    • Colorfastness

    • Hypoallergenic

    • Wrinkle-Resistance

    • Durability

    • Sustainability

  • Recycled Polyester

    Plastic melted down and upcycled into new(ish) recycled fiber.

    This soft (yet tough) fabric has all the same properties as its conventional counterpart but is a way more sustainable option. Fiber Type: Synthetic

    • Breathability

    • Shrink-Resistance

    • Colorfastness

    • Hypoallergenic

    • Wrinkle-Resistance

    • Durability

    • Sustainability

  • Rayon (Viscose)

    Made from purified cellulose, primarily from mulberry tree wood pulp.

    Famous for its silk-like drape, this fiber is also known for its ability to hold vibrant dye colors super well. Fiber Type: Cellulosic

    • Breathability

    • Shrink-Resistance

    • Colorfastness

    • Hypoallergenic

    • Wrinkle-Resistance

    • Durability

    • Sustainability

  • Acrylic

    A man-made fiber that’s designed to resemble wool.

    Known for absorbing and holding onto dyes and color well. It’s a great alternative for people that hate the itchiness of wool. Fiber Type: Synthetic

    • Breathability

    • Shrink-Resistance

    • Colorfastness

    • Hypoallergenic

    • Wrinkle-Resistance

    • Durability

    • Sustainability

  • We're working really hard to maximize our use of fabrics that minimize our environmental impact. See where we're at and where we're headed.
