Sustainability

At Touché, we believe that sustainable choices can coexist with indulgent luxury. That's why we have carefully curated our signature eucalyptus silk bedding made from TENCEL™ Lyocell fibres, derived sustainably from eucalyptus trees. With our eucalyptus silk, you can transform your bedroom into a haven of comfort, while also contributing to a more sustainable future.

The Environmental Impact of Traditional Silk

Silk has long been celebrated for its exceptional skin, health, and beauty benefits. However, it comes with a significant environmental cost. Extensive research conducted by the Sustainable Apparel Coalition reveals that silk production has a more detrimental impact on the planet compared to many synthetic fabrics. Shockingly, PETA has exposed the cruel reality that for every kilogram of silk, approximately 6,600 silkworms are boiled or gassed alive during the production process.

Our Sustainable Solution: Touché Vegan Silk

We are proud to offer an ethical alternative to traditional silk through our vegan silk bedding. Crafted from TENCEL™ Lyocell fibres derived from sustainably harvested eucalyptus trees, our bedding embodies luxury without compromising our commitment to the planet.

Closed-Loop System and Resource Conservation

The eucalyptus wood pulp used in creating our eucalyptus silk undergoes a closed-loop production process. This means that an impressive 99% percent of the water and solvent used during manufacturing is recovered and recycled repeatedly. By minimising waste and maximising resource efficiency, we ensure that our production methods have a minimal environmental impact.

Sustainable Eucalyptus Farming and Forest Management

The eucalyptus trees that provide the fibres for our fabric are cultivated in FSC certified forests. These forests adhere to rigorous environmental, social, and economic standards, ensuring responsible and sustainable management practices. Our eucalyptus forests are entirely organic and sustainably farmed, relying on the natural process of photosynthesis to grow the fibres. This approach ensures that our raw materials are sourced from renewable and eco-friendly wood.

Biodegradable and Environmentally Conscious

Unlike other fabrics, our eucalyptus silk is naturally biodegradable. When you no longer need our bedding, it will seamlessly return to the earth, leaving no trace of harm behind. We believe in designing products that honour the circularity of nature, ensuring that our resources can be replenished without depleting the planet's natural balance.

Energy Conservation:

We understand the importance of conserving energy and its impact on the environment. That's why we're proud to share that our fabric production process is designed to use 30% less energy than cotton. By implementing efficient techniques and harnessing renewable energy sources, we aim to reduce our reliance on finite resources and contribute to a more sustainable future.
