Prefer natural fibers

Prefer natural fibers

In this guide you will learn how to support sustainable fashion by choosing natural fibers. We'll show you how to identify and consciously choose the right materials.

🌱 Understand what natural fibers are

Natural fibers are textiles that come from natural sources such as plants, animals, or minerals. These include cotton, linen, wool and silk, for example. This contrasts with synthetic fibers that are made from petroleum, such as polyester, nylon and spandex. To support sustainable fashion, you should pay attention to the material composition of your garments and prefer natural fibers.

🔍 Learn to read labels

On the label of a garment you will find information about the material composition. Make sure that the largest part is made of natural fibers. Sometimes it's not easy to understand the labels, but with a little practice you'll soon become a pro at reading labels.

🛍️ Buy consciously

The next time you go shopping, take time to read the labels and feel the materials. High quality natural fibers often feel more comfortable on the skin and are of better quality. Support brands that use sustainable materials and produce fairly.

🔄 Think about whether you really need something new.

An important aspect of sustainability is to consume less and use what we already have. Before making any purchase, consider whether you really need the item of clothing and whether there is a more sustainable alternative, such as secondhand or swap meets.

🌍 Think globally, act locally

Support local designers and small businesses that rely on sustainable materials. Often they have a transparent production chain and you can be sure that the materials are environmentally friendly and fairly traded.

🔄 Take care of your clothes properly

Natural fibers last longer if they are properly cared for. Pay attention to the care instructions on the label and wash your clothes as rarely as possible. This not only protects the fibers, but also the environment.

🔄 Recycle or donate old clothes

If you don't wear clothes anymore, don't just throw them away. Many pieces can be recycled or donated to people who need them. This way you extend the life cycle of your clothes and support sustainable fashion.
