Arnhem clothing is a leading brand in the sustainable fashion movement. I have been shopping online with this brand for a few years and they have been stepping up more and more with their drastic changes that reduce their environmental impact.
Gotta Love Byron
Arnhem is a brand based out of Byron Bay. If you can’t tell yet Byron Bay is one of my favorite places on Earth. I talk a lot about this amazing beach town on my blog. Arnhem clothing is made for adventures in the sun with the ocean in view. Their shop just steps away from the ocean. The collections that they release are always beautiful. And Arnhem is the place for the best bohemian and floral prints. I bought this skirt and
You may be wondering why organic clothing makes a difference? You’re not eating it after all. Conventionally grown cotton uses more pesticides than any other crop in the world. It is extremely harmful to the producers, wildlife, and the surrounding eco-system. Choosing organic cotton is not only beneficial for you but everyone involved in its production. The process also uses less water and energy than conventional cotton farms. Vote to change how cotton is grown by buying organic cotton. If we consciously pay attention to the materials we use by choosing products that are reusable and organic we could create a huge impact on this planet.
Arnhem has responsibly sourced many other sustainable materials for all of the artfully designed collections. Arnhem uses Tencel for their Azalea collection. Tencel is a renewable and compostable material made out of raw wood pulp. The production of this natural material is eco-friendly, and 100% of the leftover solvent for cleaning products. The material is more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk, and lighter weight than linen. Making it the perfect summertime or anytime raw material.
Another material Arnhem uses is Viscose by Lenzing AG. The new Primrose collection is made out of Viscose. Using this material from this source is low impact on the environment. The chemical waste product is either recycled or sold.
Arnhem Sustainable Materials
In addition, the material Econyl Nylon is a regenerated material. Made out of consumer waste. Such as plastic, fishing net, and fabric scraps. Econyl Nylon is designed in order to lessen the burden in our oceans and landfills. Arnhem uses this gorgeous material to make their swimsuit collections. This fabric has proven to be stronger than typical swimwear materials and it holds up better to chlorine and sunscreens.
Furthermore, there is the tried and true natural material that has been used for over 10,000 years, hemp. Hemp is durable and resistant to UV light and mold. The plant can easily be grown with little or no pesticides, and since the material is 100% natural it is also compostable. Arnhem uses hemp bags to pack garments and for gift bags with a purchase at their store.
The Arnhem Remy collection is sustainable and natural linen. Linen
“We must get together to make meaningful changes and minimize our impact on this planet. I believe in a future full of beauty for my children and future generations.”– Arnhem Bickley
Using Even The Scraps
When Arnhem has leftover material from their designs they use whatever is leftover to create kids’ clothes, creating less waste in the design process. Then they go a step above again with all of their packing material made out of 100% recyclable material. The packaging, labeling, tissue paper, and price tags, all recyclable. The clothing supply chain is responsibly managed within the guidelines of environmental, social, and economic considerations. And is
Also, when you think Arnhem has thought of everything they go even further with compostable bags that replace the plastic bags used when shipping packages. I have never seen this much detail go into a sustainable fashion company. You can tell that Arnhem really cares about changing how wasteful their industry is and I hope to see every single clothing brand take action to follow in their footsteps. As soon as I see this much care for the planet in the culture of any type of company I will be a forever customer. Bravo Arnhem.
