The Barcelona Dress is made of 100% tencel. Tencel is made from wood pulp that’s harvested from tree farms that are sustainably managed and traceable. The tree farms have been established on land unsuitable for food crops or grazing. The fiber production itself is more eco-friendly than cotton production due to its’ closed-loop process. This means that up to 99% of the water and solvents used are recycled and reused. Production plant emissions are significantly lower in comparison to many other human-made fiber operations. The closed loop process process used to manufacture Lyocell fiber does not require bleach, which is commonly used in the production of other fabrics.
The Barcelona Dress is made in a small atelier in Tallinn, Estonia. Manufacturing nearby enables us to produce only what our customers want and need, eliminating excess and surplus use of resources, in respect to the environment. And moreover, it enables us and our customers feel good, knowing that the people who make our clothes are treated well. Each garment also carries the name of the person who made it.
