Why is Torres Linen Shirt – Terra Cotta sustainable?
Surplus fabric – An estimated 80% of the environmental strain of a garment comes from producing the fabric. That is why we at Residus are always on the hunt for high quality leftovers. When using leftovers we reduce our ecological footprint and actively reduce industry waste products with each of our beautiful surplus designs.
Linen – Linen is a super fiber that originates from the earth friendly flax plant. Growing linen requires far less water than growing cotton and it does not acquire any chemicals or fertilizers. Add to this that the fabric is amazingly comfortable to wear as well as recyclable and fully biodegradable.
