Vegan and Eco-friendly, we choose them carefully !

We choose our fabrics according to three requirements

1. They must be eco-friendly and, if possible, ethical too.
2. They must be technical (multi-purpose for everyday life and adventures).
3. They must be high quality, easy-care and comfortable

That’s why we work with ethical manufacturers (Fair Trade certified), providing high quality garments and only ecological fabrics (GOTS and/or Oeko-Tex certified).

We also want to have multi-purpose clothing so that we can buy less and take better care of the planet health. That’s why our clothes are also technical.


Why Organic Cotton ?

Because of pesticides, cheap prices, water consumption and force of habit, the cotton industry is one of the most polluting in the world. Soils are devastated by intensive farming and it takes years to come back to a normal state when a land has been contaminated by chemicals…

But there is a simple alternative: the organic one !

Even if it’s not perfect, organic cotton is by far better than normal cotton, just considering the chemical pollution due to pesticides and other garment treatments..

Val Sauvage Clothing uses only GOTS and/or OEKO-TEX certified organic cotton, cultivated without pesticides, GMOs nor chemical fertilizer.

Organic cotton allows us to be more respectful of our skin and to drastically reduce our pollution impact on the environment.

An ecological fabric

Tencel, Lyocell and Modal follow the same way of manufacturing.

They are cellulose fibers, similar to Viscose, but more ecological.

Tencel and Lyocell (which are the same but produced by different firms) come from sustainable eucalyptus forests, which don’t require water nor pesticides to grow. They are also OEKO-TEX certified.

Modal for its part comes from beechwood, which is also eco-responsible, providing that it comes from durably managed farming forests.

These fabrics have the distinctive characteristic to be transformed thanks to a non-toxic solvent, recycled at 99% in closed circuit!

Besides that, they have a lot of qualities over the organic cotton fabrics.

A very versatile one

Hemp, like organic cotton, doesn’t need any chemical transformation.

However, it’s more ecological, because its water consumption during the manufaturing is significantly lower.

Like our other fabrics, hemp is cultivated without pesticides, GMOs nor chemical fertilizer. This is one of the most environmentally friendly material available on the market !

Natural, technical, ecological and comfy, this fabric has nearly no flaws.
