Duration 20 min 4 s

An overview of my favorite eco conscious fabrics which include organic, sustainable, and upcycled materials.

In my collections I use a blend of organic, sustainable, and upcycled materials. I am best known for my work in the upcycled category but I love organics, sustainable materials like hemp and modal, and unusual materials made of pineapple, fish, and other materials that would typically be considered waste and thrown into landfill.

Hemp is truly one of my favorite sustainable fabrics and most of the hemp fabrics I use are also certified organic. This certification depends on the textile manufacturer.
