Why choose organic clothes made from fibres of hemp, bamboo, and linen over other brands made from synthetic fibers and cotton? Did you know that polyester, nylon, acrylic are petroleum-derived?
To support sustaniability, we must aim to be independent of the petroleum industry. Such fibres are not biodegradable and cause a problem when the garment reaches the end of its cycle. They also cause microplastic pollution in nature when the end-product garment is washed. Synthetic fibres account for about 60% of textile fibres used in the world.
Why should you avoid cotton? Conventional cotton (non-organic) culture requires a lot of pesticides and insecticides (those “gross” products that end up in the environment and contribute to serious diseases). Growing cotton is also very water-intensive and many farms use GMO seeds. Cotton accounts for about 30% of textile fibres used in the world.
So why choose LiWa Organic clothing brand: As our clothes are all natural, they contribute to the protection of our precious environment but also gives you the chance to wear comfortable and soft materials. Not only does hemp and bamboo require less water for growth, so rainfall is more than enough, but they also grow extremely fast and don't need acres of land, which helps towards saving our planet’s forests and animals.
Not to mention, hemp, linen and bamboo feel so comfy! The feeling of the fabrics against your skin is pure softness. Every time the clothes are washed, they will also go softer, meaning that even more comfortable times are yet to come.
