Sustainable Clothes

General considerations

Clothes, heat and comfort

Using thin and modern weaves of wool can allow colder interior temperatures in winter without sacrificing comfort, sex appeal or practicality.

Washing clothes

To reduce the deterioration of clothes over time reducing the amount of times the piece is washed is essential. Washing by machine wears a lot on the materials.

In this regard the choice of material is also essential.

Alternative methods

Material choice

Modern day synthethics are unsuperior to wool in certain imporant regards. Wool needs less washing and can be worn more times than syntethic clothes.

Note: this mustn’t be the case physically speaking, but material development is not sufficiently advanced to allow cost effective production of competing materials as of now.
