Fabrics and Materials

Fabric

At Sailaal, we predominantly use natural fibers because they are breathable, cooling, durable, and biodegradable. This includes plant-based cellulose fibers, such as organic cotton and hemp, and animal-based protein fibers like silk.

Organic Cotton: We only source GOTS certified organic cotton, the international gold standard of organic textiles in which every step of the supply chain meets strict environmental and social standards. Organic cotton uses less energy and water than conventional cotton. It is grown without GMO seeds or toxic chemicals such as synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, making it safe for the soil, farmer, and consumer.

Hemp: We source our beautiful hemp blends from a GOTS certified company, guaranteeing their ethics and safety. Hemp comes from the Cannabis Sativa plant, which consumes little water and doesn’t typically require the use of fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides. It contributes to healthy soil by replenishing essential nutrients, removing pollutants, and reducing erosion. The fabric comes from the plant’s bast, while other parts of the plant are used to make different products, resulting in zero-waste.

Silk: We only source 100% silk that is certified according to Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex, one of the world’s most reliable certifications testing for chemicals and substances harmful to humans.
