The fabrics used by Nokonen have GOTS, Eco-Tex, EU Ecolabel and ICEA certificates to ensure non-toxic and transparent production. The fabric for the Angervo dress is woven in Italy. People have worn clothes made from nettle fibres and yarns for the past 2,000 years with earliest traces being found from the late Bronze Age in Voldtofte, Denmark. There is evidence of nettle cloth production in Scandinavia, Poland, Germany, Russia and Scotland as well but also outside of Europe. Since nettle is easy to grow in abundance, is resistant to diseases and pests, there is no need for any chemical fertilizers or other dangerous additives to artificially stimulate the plants growth. Like hemp, the fiber uses much less water. It also improves the environment in which it grows by helping to control erosion and preventing deadly landslides. Nettle fibres are extremely absorbent, antimicrobial and antibacterial. The fabric has a similar consistency and properties as linen.
