Sustainability isn’t a trend – it’s a movement. Here at Monsoon, we’re taking small yet crucial steps to build a more eco-conscious future for fashion with our S.E.W. collection and we’ve got even bigger plans in the pipeline – and first up, we’re talking fabrics. We’re striving to use more ethically-sourced materials to make some of our most beautiful things and here, we’re talking you through the four sustainable fabrics you need in your eco-friendly wardrobe.
1. LENZING™ ECOVERO™
LENZING™ ECOVERO™ is a sustainable fabric derived from certified renewable wood sources and made using eco-responsible production methods. It generates up to 50% lower emissions and water impact than traditional viscose, contributing to a cleaner environment. The fabric’s natural lightness and versatility makes it a must-have in your all-season wardrobe, as seen in our current collection with a mix of easy shapes, signature prints and fresh colour palettes.
Known for its natural comfort, TENCEL™ is produced from sustainably-sourced wood sources and uses environmentally-responsible and sustainable production processes. It’s one of the go-to fabrications for casual silhouettes thanks to its soft touch and smoothness – find it in our capsule collection of jumpsuits, joggers and midi skirts.
3. Organic Cotton
Beautifully light and soft to the touch, our organic cotton is grown using methods that are kinder to the environment. It avoids toxic pesticides and synthetic fertilisers which makes production safer for people and wildlife. As part of our commitment to sustainable fashion, organic cotton will be becoming a more prominent part of our upcoming collections, from cool co-ords to day dresses with the key prints of the season.
Naturally breathable, cool and lightweight, linen has long been regarded as a favourite fabric of the summer months. It’s made from the flax plant which relies solely on rainfall, is grown without the use of GMOs and produces zero waste. A favourite with us (and with you), our linen collection is packed with sustainable styles that are vying for a place in your warm-weather wardrobe – think sun dresses, effortless jumpsuits and breezy separates.
