The Best Fabrics for Sustainable Fashion

There has been a recent surge in sustainable fashion, and for good reason! Consumers are more aware of the importance of sustainability and are looking for brands that align with their values. At Pure Balanxed, we pride ourselves on using sustainable organic fabrics in our clothing.

A lot has been said about organic fabrics in the past few years. Some people believe that organic fabrics are a waste of money, while others swear by their benefits. At Pure Balanxed, we use only organic materials in our sustainable fashion and here's why.

Pure Balanxed makes sustainable fashion with only a few selective materials: 

  • Rayon from Bamboo -  Bamboo rayon is a sustainable fabric made from the pulp of bamboo grass. Bamboo is one of the fastest-growing plants in the world and does not require any pesticides or herbicides to grow.
  • TENCEL™ Lyocell - Tencel lyocell is another sustainable fabric made from wood cellulose. Tencel is a closed-loop system, meaning that all the water and chemicals used in the production process are recycled and reused.
  • OEKO-TEX Standard 100 Certified Organic Cotton - organic cotton is grown without the use of pesticides or herbicides. This means that organic cotton textiles  are better for the environment and for the farmers who grow it.

So, what are the benefits of using organic fabrics?

  • Organic fabrics are better for the environment - organic farming practices help to preserve resources like water and soil. In addition, organic fabrics are biodegradable and recyclable.

  • Organic fabrics are safer for your skin - since organic materials are not treated with chemicals or pesticides, they are less likely to cause irritation or skin allergies.

  • Fewer risks to cotton farm workers - organic cotton farming does not require the use of harmful pesticides or herbicides. This means that it does not expose organic cotton farmers to these dangerous chemicals. These types of chemicals may cause asthma, infertility, birth defects, and even cancer.

  • Organic fabrics are durable - organic materials are just as durable as conventional materials. In fact, organic cotton is actually stronger than conventional cotton.

Now that you know the benefits of organic fabrics, it's time to debunk the myths about them.

Myth #1: Organic fabrics are more expensive than conventional fabrics.

Fact: While organic fabrics may cost more upfront, they will save you money in the long run on ethical clothing. Organic materials are more durable and last longer than conventional materials, so you won't have to replace your clothes as often.

Myth #2: Organic fabrics are useless because they're not waterproof or stain-resistant.

Fact: There are many ‌organic fabrics, and each type has its own set of benefits. For example, organic cotton fabric is absorbent and breathable, while organic bamboo is naturally antibacterial and antifungal.

Myth #3: It's not worth it to buy organic fabrics because they make up such a small percentage of the fashion industry.

Fact: Even though organic fabrics make up a small percentage of the fashion industry, that doesn't mean that your purchase of sustainable clothing won't make a difference. Every organic garment you buy is one less garment made with harmful chemicals and pesticides. In addition, buying ethical clothing helps to support sustainable farming practices.

Myth #4: More organic farms will lead to deforestation.

Fact: Organic farming actually helps to reduce deforestation. Organic farmers use sustainable farming practices that help to preserve resources like water and soil. In addition, organic materials are biodegradable and recyclable.
