Are your printed clothes putting you and our Earth at risk?

WHAT WE LOVE:

  • The soft touch of an elegantly printed fabric
  • Prints that stay sharp and vibrant for longer

BUT DID YOU KNOW?

  • The pigments are applied to the fabrics together with a binder that often contains carcinogenic impurities…
  • …needs a lot of heat energy to be effective...
  • …and makes the fabric harsh to the touch
