We believe in radical transparency. 

Sustainability is at the core of 8 ARROWS DNA. 

Every decision we make must consider / embetter both the planet and you. It's an AND relationship rather than on OR one. 

The fashion industry is the second most polluting industry (after oil). We take this reality very seriously.

Here is information about our fabric, our pricing and compostable packaging. 

We developed our fabric using LENZING yarns.

ABOUT OUR FABRIC : TENCEL fibers help maintain environmental balance by being integrated into natures cycle. TENCEL™ Lyocell and Modal fibers help to maintain the environmental balance by being integrated into nature's cycle. The fibers originate from the renewable raw material wood, created by photosynthesis. The certified biobased fibers are manufactured using an environmentally responsible production process. The fibers are certified as compostable and biodegradable, and thus can fully revert back to nature.

TENCEL™ Modal fibers are extracted from naturally grown beech wood by an environmentally responsible integrated pulp-to-fiber process, which is self-sufficient in energy and recovers co-products from component parts of the wood. This flexible fiber is renowned for its exceptional softness.

Composed of natural material, all TENCEL™ standard Modal fibers are biodegradable and compostable under industrial, home, soil and marine conditions, thus they can fully revert back to nature.

Exhibiting high flexibility, TENCEL™ Modal wood-based fibers offer textiles a long-lasting quality of exquisite softness. Owing to the fiber’s sleek cross-section, TENCEL™ Modal fibers enhance the soft touch of fabrics even after repeated washing. Measurements and hand evaluations of softness show that TENCEL™ Modal fibers feel twice as soft as cotton. The softness of TENCEL™ Modal fibers lasts longer and is able to withstand repeated wash and dry cycles compared to cotton.
