OUR MATERIALS

ReCreate is not just about meeting minimum ethical standards. We are committed to people and the environment, from the production of our garments right through to the sourcing of our raw cotton and the development of our beautiful organic fabrics. The following materials are used in the creation of our clothing.

Our 100% organic cotton jersey is certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) — the worldwide leading standard for organic fabrics. It is sourced from Thailand which is the closest fabric manufacturing location to our workshop in Cambodia, minimising the environmental impact of shipping. This 160gsm knit is a medium weight, perfect for comfortable, everyday wear. It has a soft and smooth hand feel.

Our 100% organic cotton sweatshirting is certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) — the worldwide leading standard for organic fabrics. It is sourced from Thailand which is the closest fabric manufacturing location to our workshop in Cambodia, minimising the environmental impact of shipping. This 250gsm french terry is a medium weight, and is warm with a beautifully soft finish.

Our 100% organic cotton poplin is certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) — the worldwide leading standard for organic fabrics. The raw cotton fibre is sourced from China where it is then woven and dyed with GOTS certification at every stage of the process. This smooth, midweight poplin is crisp to touch and wears beautifully over time.

It is sustainably milled using 100% recycled water and dyed with AZO free dyes that are gentle on the environment. This is a smooth and supple denim that is both durable and easy to wear.

Created in Cambodia, our handwoven cotton provides fair employment for rural families through the use of traditional Khmer weaving techniques. As a guaranteed member of the World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO), this enterprise offers living wages, the ability to work from home, flexibility for mothers to work and care for their children, and support for children to progress from school to a university level. Produced entirely by hand, the cotton is spun into thread and dyed using natural and organic materials such as local barks, vegetable skins and flowers. The thread is then handwoven on a loom. The finished fabric is gentle and textured with a 'perfectly imperfect' weave, making each garment unique.
