Our Sustainable Fabric

Eucalyptus silk has been hailed as a game-changer by beauty gurus worldwide - and now you can fill your bedroom with its luxurious fibers for a cooling, beauty-boosting, and more sustainable sleep.

The Problem

Silk is renowned for its skin, health and beauty benefits, but did you know it's one of the most harmful fabrics on the planet? Silk has a more detrimental environmental impact than many synthetic fabrics, based on research by the Sustainable Apparel Coalition. PETA has also revealed that for every 1 kilogram of silk, 6600 silkworms are boiled or gassed alive. 

The Sustainable Solution

touché signature vegan silk is spun from TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers, sustainably harvested from eucalyptus trees. The wood pulp is treated in a closed-loop system, wherein ninety-nine percent of the water and solvent used in production is recovered and reused, again and again. This extends the lifecycle of our resources and eliminates environmental waste.

touché vegan silk comes from eucalyptus farms around the world, grown in FSC certified forests, which means they are managed to strict environmental, social and economic standards. Our eucalyptus forests are entirely organic and sustainably farmed, using fibers grown by photosynthesis, and sourced from renewable wood.

The eucalyptus fiber used to create the beautiful vegan silk is considerably more eco-friendly than cotton and bamboo, as it is naturally biodegradable, becoming one with nature when no longer in use. 

Additionally, when colouring this fabric, the carbon footprint is 60% less than other conventionally dyed textiles, and up to 50% of energy and water is saved.

The Silk Industry

According to the Higg Index, silk has by far the worst impact on the environment of any textile, including polyester, viscose/rayon, and lyocell. It’s worse than the much-demonized cotton, using more fresh water, causing more water pollution, and emitting more greenhouse gases.

On top of this, at least 420 billion silkworms are killed annually during the production of silk generally due to disease and pests in industrial farming.

Eucalyptus has been on the rise to cult favourite status, quickly becoming a top choice over linen bedding. Which should you choose: laid-back linen or elegant eucalyptus? Read for our advice.
