Fabric

Description

Our blend of 50% Lenzing Tencel Luxe + 50% Lenzing Tencel makes this cellulose fabric silky and soft, with a gorgeous drape and light feel next to the skin. The material is commissioned by our "fabric composer", Mr. Mozart, who has spent the past 12 years building the most sustainable Tencel dye house and treatment centre possible. The yarns are brought in directly from Lenzing in Austria. The Tencel is spun in Wuxi and then woven with the un-spun Tencel Luxe in Suzhou where the looms can work with extremely fine filament fibres. It is finally brought back in-house to Mozartex where it is dyed using low impact dyes and treated wastewater.

Thread

Description

100% Cradle 2 Cradle Gold certified, Tencel Lyocell sewing thread. This plant-based, biodegradable thread is strong and colour fast, with a supply chain to write home about. The Tencel fibres are created from eucalyptus tree pulp in Austria, then spun + dyed in Switzerland using low impact dyes.

Label

Description

100% recycled PET made in-house by a manufacturer with a passion for developing sustainable alternatives for brands. This is the only part of the garment that isn’t biodegradable. Things get better! In 2019 we developed a way to make these labels in organic cotton which feature in garments from A.31 onwards.

Care Label

Description

100% GOTS organic cotton. When we started A.BCH in 2017, there were no organic cotton label options. In 2019, we were able to make the switch to digitally printed, 100% GOTS organic care labels which are now found on most of our garments.

End of Life

Recycling

The best way to keep this piece in the circular economy is to send it back to us. We'll cover shipping AND even throw in a store credit! Depending on its condition, we'll repair & re-sell it (as second hand) OR it'll be transformed into brand new yarns through our recycling program.

 

Compost

If you can't send it back to us, the A.23 is 99.5% compostable. After a long life of use, repair and re-use, simply remove the A.BCH tag on the inside back and cut the skirt into strips, safe for anaerobic composting at home or commercially.
