Dyed using the most eco-friendly dyes available and using 7 times less water than average your garment manufacturers. Airlume cotton production removes 2.5 times more impurities than standard ring-spun cotton through an extensive fabric combing process.
We look to manufacturers who produce their garments using earth friendly processes. At Slow South we are continuously working on sourcing better fabrics. You can see some of our current choices below.
Why our products?
Re-Gen fabric works towards reducing the world’s landfill, it blends pre-consumer waste cotton with recycled polyester with no need for extra garment dying. On average per sweater, regenerated cotton saves 20,000 litres of water, 2.7kg of dyes and 11kg of CO2 emissions. It's possible to recycle around 0.22kg of cotton and 19 plastic bottles per sweater.
We want our garments to be accessible for as many people as possible and therefore all Slow South garments are made from 100% vegan fabric.
