WHAT WE LOVE
Our sustainably dyed Double Gauze garments are produced in downtown Los Angeles within a 10-mile radius of our warehouse. The local production chain directly benefits our community.
WHAT WE DON'T LOVE
We have limited traceability on this fabric. That means we don’t know exactly where the cotton is grown and how it is harvested.
Our lightweight Double Gauze fabric is made from two layers of 100% fine cotton gauze tacked together at regular intervals to create a wrinkled texture. Perfect for packing…
We know that the cotton used to make our Double Gauze fabric is milled in China. The truth is that unfortunately, we have limited traceability on this fabric. That means we don’t know exactly where the cotton is grown and how it is harvested. Because of the negative environmental impacts of commercial cotton, traceability is important for us. We are currently gathering all of the information available (and researching better options) so that we can make a more informed choice in the future.
We are, however, proud to note that all of the Double Gauze garments in our line are produced within a 10-mile radius of our headquarters in downtown Los Angeles. Our dye house uses low impact dyes vs conventional dyes. Low impact dyes use approximately 25% less water depending on the color and hand finish (i.e., softener/silicone). This localized production chain directly benefits our community.
LANDFILL LIFETIME: If a 100% Cotton item ends up in a landfill it would take approximately 3 months to biodegrade depending on soil conditions.
CARE: Wash by hand. We don’t recommend machine washing this fabric, but if you must, use the delicate cycle with cold water and place it inside out in a lingerie bag. (But really, hand washing is the way to go.) Air dry.
