I usually spend my Sundays at home doing my relaxing routine and prepping for the new week. It so happened that on one of these recent Sundays my friend and I decided to spend an afternoon out and she treated me to some gelato as we created some content.
It turned out to be such a lovely day in the sun and we took photos for her brand Natai Natai. The reason why I have decided to write this article is that I have been reading quite a bit about linen & sustainability in general and I just wanted to share some knowledge.
Linen is one of the most biodegradable and stylish fabrics in fashion history. It is strong, naturally moth resistant, and made from flax plant fibers, so when untreated it is fully biodegradable. Linen can withstand high temperatures—making the fabric generally perfect for raiding the jungle or lounging on a tropical island. In general, it’s material that lasts a long while and it’s versatile.
It’s very important to know how your clothes are made and WHO actually makes them. Of course, you could walk into a shop and pick out a t-shirt but it’s important to know what the impact on the environment is.
DID YOU KNOW…
That a study of 1452 home workers in India’s garment industry found that 99.2% were subject to conditions of forced labor.
I know it’s a bit heavy to chew, but that’s why we always have to be aware of the processes involved in the clothes that we wear on our backs. This is why I am a fan of buying local. I know who is making my clothes and I know the conditions of the people that are sitting on the machine. Its also good to do a bit of research on other international brands to find out how they do their production and if they practice ethical fashion.
As a generation of conscious people, we need to stand for something, causes that are important to us, and be intentional in everything we do and wear.
