FROM FIBRE TO FABRIC

 ReCreate is not just about meeting minimum ethical standards, we are committed to people and the environment. 

 We are passionate about ensuring that our garments are kind to the earth, as well as the people who make them
and are continually moving towards a more sustainable way of doing business, providing even more training and
employment opportunities at our sewing center in Cambodia each year.

By using strictly ethical and sustainable processes we positively impact and transform the lives of marginalised
people in Cambodia. Sourcing only the finest organic material for quality handmade clothing, we have also
chosen to partner with likeminded factories and businesses to ensure that our garments are
manufactured under excellent fair trade working conditions from crop to customer.

About this fabric:

Four years ago, we came across an inspiring business in Takeo Province Cambodia that provides fair employment for rural families
who are living in poverty. Reviving skills that were lost in the 1970’s Khmer Rouge Regime, this business rebuilt a lost cultural art
through sheer hard work.

By using traditional Khmer skills and techniques this paid enterprise gives families the opportunity to regain their livelihood by
offering fair wages, the ability to work from home, flexibility for mums to work and care for their children at the same time,
as well as support for children to progress from school to a university level.

Recognised by the International Trade Centre as providing an effective solution to poverty in rural Cambodia and certified
by the World Trade Organisation (WTO), our producers manufacture their fabric entirely by hand.

So, how is it made? The cotton is hand spun into thread and is then dyed using traditional Khmer dying techniques. These organic,
natural colour dyes are made using natural materials like local barks, vegetable skins and flowers with not a chemical in sight!

That makes it an amazing environmental practice that positively impacts lives! The thread is then handwoven on a loom.
Once the weaving is complete, the fabric is sent to our sewing center in Cambodia where it is sewn with care.

See images of the process below!

Why we love this fabric:

Creates a fair employment opportunity to people living in poverty and the master weavers can help care for wider family 

Made entirely by hand using Khmer techniques of hand spinning and hand weaving, which means that each piece of fabric is
unique and special to the weaver

Honours and keeps alive traditional artisan craft and ensures a new generation of people can appreciate it

Dyed using only natural materials

How it feels:

Gentle on the skin with a beautiful drape and soft handle
