At Lylou the label you will only find natural fibres such as Linen, Bamboo, and Cupro Tencel in all our collections.
Bamboo itself can be a highly sustainable crop, if grown under the right conditions: a fast-growing grass, it requires no fertiliser and self-regenerates from its own roots, so it doesn’t need to be replanted.
Known for their natural comfort, TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers have gained a commendable reputation for their award-winning closed loop production process, which transforms wood pulp into cellulosic fibers with high resource efficiency and low environmental impact.
Cupro, which is regenerated cellulose fiber made from cotton linter, a raw material that is pre-consumer waste. Made from a natural material, Cupro feels silky smooth against the skin, is also a biodegradabale and compostable fiber that breaks down naturally after disposal.
Linen is one of the most biodegradable and stylish fabrics in fashion history. It is strong, naturally moth resistant, and made from flax plant fibres, so when untreated (i.e. not dyed) it is fully biodegradable. It’s also one of the oldest fibres known, dating back to 8000BC!
Linen can withstand high temperatures. It absorbs moisture without holding bacteria. In fact, it is actually stronger when wet than dry and becomes softer and more pliable the more it is washed. It just gets better and better!
Flax, the plant from which linen is made, is also extremely versatile. Every part of the flax plant has traditionally been used to create a worthwhile product - nothing is wasted, and production is cost effective.
