Grown from sustainable forestry plantations, Beechwood trees multiply by rejuvenation. That means the trees propagate by themselves. No artificial irrigation or planting required. Beechwood forests are 100% sustainable. This process allows us to bring the softest fabric on Earth to your closet.
Lenzing Modal makes up 85% of our fabric and is fully biodegradable under soil and marine conditions, as well as compostable. Oxygen-based chemicals are used for pulp bleaching and totally chlorine free. The Beechwood is sourced with the strictest European forest regulations. Labor rights are subject to Austrian law where employees benefit from fair wages and national protection of human rights. They use closed loop technologies and have a very high rate for any chemicals thanks to the recovery systems they use.
Generic modal is 88 percent higher in the use of fossil fuel. Lenzing is the leader in their field and are committed to the protection of ancient and endangered forests. In 2016 the Canadian NGO Canopy ranked the Lenzing group as Industry leaders for its sourcing practices, sustainability commitments, innovations and progress made toward those goals. We are proud to use Lenzing Modal for our collection and feel this fabric is simply amazing we are sure you will agree.
BLEUSALT is proudly working towards being fully zero-waste – each and every item you will receive is packaged in the line’s fabric remnants and shipped in recyclable boxes.
