OUR MATERIALS - OLD VERSION

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.

SIGNATURE ORGANIC COTTON JERSEY

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 soft midweight, perfect for comfortable, everyday wear.

SIGNATURE ORGANIC COTTON SWEATSHIRTING

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 beautifully warm with the softest of finishes.

LUXE ORGANIC LIGHTWEIGHT DENIM

Sourced from a mill in Thailand that specialises in denim, this fabric is manufactured from 100% Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) sourced cotton and is Standard 100 OKEO-TEX® certified. It is sustainably milled using 100% recycled water and dyed with organic dyes that are gentle on the environment. This fabric is lightweight and extra fine, with a soft handle and cool, comfortable wear.

LUXE ORGANIC NATURAL DENIM

Sourced from a mill in Thailand that specialises in denim, this fabric is manufactured from 100% Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) sourced cotton and is Standard 100 OKEO-TEX® certified. It is sustainably milled using 100% recycled water and is un-dyed, embracing the natural colour of cotton. This is a robust and beautiful fabric with a classic denim hand-feel.

ORGANIC COTTON POPLIN

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, after being certified at each stage of the fabric production process. This smooth, midweight poplin is crisp to touch and wears beautifully over time.

ARTISAN HANDWOVEN COTTON

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.
