Made to Order Production
This means I only make what you order! This slow-fashion technique encourages customization and decreases unwanted stock pilling up.
Quality, sustainable garments start with eco-friendly fabrics. No fabric is perfect but I strive to improve my sustainable practices with each new collection. Read about why I choose Bamboo Velour and Recycled Polyester for my designs down below.
Striving for Better
I vow to keep challenging myself to find the most sustainable way your clothes can be made and distributed. I want Ooey Gooey Vanshop to be around for a long time~ which means working with the planet, instead of against it.
Fabric Focus: Bamboo Velour
Grows fast and efficiently without the use of pesticides and fertilizers
Crop requires little space and minimum water usage to thrive
Fabric is highly absorbent and thus needs less dye than other fibers
Bamboo absorbs more CO2 than any other forest
Fabric has antibacterial and hypoallergenic properties PLUS is moisture wicking, keeping you smelling and feeling your best
Insulating yet breathable, allowing for warmth in cold climates and cooling in warmer ones
Fabric Focus: Repreve Recycled Polyester
Made from Repreve Polyester Yarn from recycled plastic bottles and other post-consumer waste products
Fibers have OEKO-TEX Standard 100 Certification to ensure recycled yarns are free of harmful substances
Durable and soft, with 4 way stretch
Production of Recycled Polyester emits significantly less greenhouse gases than virgin polyester, conserving water and energy in the process
Diverts 13 plastic bottles per yard of fabric from the oceans and landfills
