Fabric Focus: The Science Behind our Softest Materials
What happens when you combine modern classic styles with high quality fabric? A collection of wardrobe essentials that you will actually want to live in. We understand that life is busy, so when it came to selecting fabrics we went on a hunt to find high quality textiles that would move with you wherever you go. What we found: four of the most extremely durable, super breathable, and unbelievably soft fabrics out there. Don’t believe us? Read below for an in-depth look at the fibers and threads that comprise our apparel.
Why we love our 100% Pima Cotton
(Seen here in the Patricia Cropped Tee)
Pima Cotton is known for its supple hand-feel, allowing garments to be extremely comfortable and to wear well over time. Peruvian Pima cotton is a natural fiber harvested entirely by hand, making it an environmentally conscious fiber. And perhaps most importantly, Pima Cotton is known to be one of the strongest, most durable fibers in the world. Best fabric ever? We think so.
Why we love our 100% Cotton French Terry
(Seen here in the Sol Sweater Coat)
Heavier than a t-shirt, but lighter than a sweatshirt - this is the fabric you want to be in year round. French Terry is made from natural cotton fibers and is known for its ability to be layered. The texture of yarn on the inside of the fabric creates a soft, cozy feel. The best part - its absorbent, moisture-wicking cotton threads keep you comfortable and cool.
Why we love our Pima Cotton-Modal-Spandex Blend
(Seen here in the Nidia Dress)
The absolute softest fabric (ever). This fabric blend offers the comfort and durability of Pima Cotton, combined with the breathable, wicking properties of modal and spandex. This fabric is wrinkle-free (thanks to the modal), has great stretch, and also provides full-coverage. Say “see ya later” to all of those inconvenient lines and dimples that come with thinner fabrics!
Why we love our Jersey Double Face
(Seen here in the Luz Knit Trouser Pants)
Jersey Double Face gets its name because of its double knit quality, creating advanced durability and increased drapability. Known to be one the most versatile fabrics, we love how the aesthetic of this fabric fits into a range of outfits, from casual to elevated. The best part - it launders well, retaining shape and quality.
