Your skin will love the high quality fabrics we work with. Here are some fabrics on which Life Is Swell items are currently screened:
ORGANIC COTTON - pure and breathableTraditional cotton farming accounted for over 10% of total pesticide use and nearly 25% of insecticides used worldwide creating concern for drinking water supplies, wildlife, and the environment. While organic farming of natural cotton fiber is more expensive compared to traditional farming, it saves pesticide and herbicide use, soil and water degradation, and also wildlife.
BAMBOO - luxurious feelLight, strong, soft to the touch, and requires less dye compared to cotton. Bamboo fabric absorbs moisture away from your skin, keeping you drier. Bamboo is one of the fastest renewable resources, growing incredibly quickly, and using about 1/3 less water than cotton to grow. Bamboo fabric also has insulating properties and will keep you cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
