Sustainability is super important to us, our process and our customers.
We reexamine and finesse our process to mind our carbon footprint and give back to our environment. Here’s what Modern Shibori stands for:
1. Organic Fabrics
We use GOTS-certified organic cotton, organic linen, and OEKO-TEX Mulberry silk read more about our fabrics
2. Water Conservation
We use low amounts of water as our pieces are made one at a time. We reuse natural dye vats until they're fully exhausted
3. Recycled and Upcycled Materials
We use eco conscious packaging that’s made from recycled materials, is recyclable and sometimes compostable. We also save our scraps and make totebags and bandanas from them
4. No Micro Plastics
We never use synthetic fiber reactive dyes or synthetic fabrics
5. Low Carbon Footprint
We use dyes grown on site when possible such as Rosemary and Toyon.
6. Ethically Made | Locally Sourced
We also employ local contractors who earn a living wage and work in factories that are well-ventilated and brightly lit
8. Slow Fashion
We are a Fibershed Supporter and a member of the Sustainable Fashion Alliance. We make each piece one at a time.
