Although there is so much more that matters when it concerns sustainable fashion, fabric is one of the elements which contributes (or not) to making sustainable clothes.                                                                                                                          
There are two categories of fabrics we use in WBYDB garments: ecological/ sustainably produced and stock fabrics. At the moment this is what we are using in our collections:
  • Ecological wools, cottons/silks and tencel (many of which are GOTS certified)
  • Stock fabrics: wools and cottons
Ecological fabrics used by us are manufactured and processed in a sustainable way. They were made of natural fibers, where possible from organic farming. Many of them are GOTS certified (which stands for Global Organic Textile Standard - the world's leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres).                                                                                                                                                       
Stock fabrics we are using are in principle fabrics that were already produced by someone else but not fully used in their production. The main sustainability-related argument for using stock fabrics is that this way we believe to limit a potential textile waste. As there is some controversy around the stock fabrics, in principle it is also good to know where and how the fabric was produced.
