‘Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.’
Until the turn of the twentieth century, the only fabrics available were the product of natural fibres. Whilst the development of synthetic fibres may have allowed people to purchase clothing faster and cheaply, it has inevitably come at a cost to the planet. We choose to use natural fibres because they are better both for people and the planet.
Simply put, organic cotton is the best form of cotton, both for the planet, the growers and the people who wear the clothing. Organic cotton is a pleasure to wear because of its breathability – it will keep you cool in the summer, and cosy in the winter, plus it will last far more wears in between washing than synthetic fibres.
Viscose is made from sustainable wood pulp, creating a natural fibre that is both breathable and biodegradable. This material has minimal impact on the environment as the trees are grown organically without pesticides.
Our continuous search for new sustainable and environmentally friendly materials sees the introduction of a new eco-friendly fibre to our collection – Lyocell is made from sustainable wood pulp, and as well as it’s green credentials, it has a beautifully soft texture and drape.
Merino wool is a natural material originating from Australian Merino sheep. Despite wool’s undisputable sustainable qualities, there are careful ethical considerations to be made when choosing to use wool. This is why we only use cruelty free certified mulesing free Merino wool.
Nomads cotton is always produced in accordance with our fair-trade policy – ensuring fair treatment and wages to workers, and minimising environmental impact. Cotton has always been our first choice of fabric, and we are proud to have grown the Nomads brand around this - whilst helping to grow the economy in India.
