Approximately 80% of the unsustainable practices in the fashion industry are a result of how conventional textiles are made, from raw fiber to the finished material.
At DAYWEARLAB we believe it’s time for real change. Clothing can be made more thoughtfully, with materials that leave a lighter footprint on the planet. We want to help drive a future in which product and ecosystem are thought about holistically. Protecting the planet is a necessity and careful design and production will drive impactful change.
Traditionally, making fabric is resource intensive in all stages of production, from fiber growth to dying to processing. All these steps require a tremendous amount of water and energy as well as sometimes toxic chemicals. How fibers are grown and processed into materials has a huge impact on farming communities and each step in the process touches many lives before becoming a working piece of textile. We believe we must do better, and this is how, at DAYWEARLAB, we only partner with mills that pursue sustainable material innovation and who share our thoughtful consideration for how products are made.
We also hand pick our fabrics to maximize quality and durability and minimize environmental impact. Our materials are luxurious and high quality, as well as naturally biodegradable and renewable. At DAYWEARLAB we carefully consider the best ways to get our fabrics made, and we make deliberate design choices to ensure production is helping our planet.
