When it is indicated at Suitable that something falls under the category 'sustainable', it means that the product is made from biological materials and that it has been produced under fair conditions.
The sustainable fashion collection is growing at Suitable and there is also this fine range of eco socks. With sustainable socks you can think of, for example, bamboo, organic cotton or organic wool socks.
A textile that is growing in popularity is bamboo, and for good reason. Bamboo grows very quickly and by growing it in an environmentally friendly way, the soil is not polluted. In order to be able to make textile from bamboo, cellulose is removed from the material, a substance that is also found in cotton fibers. This is then spun into threads that are woven into textile.
There are many advantages to bamboo:
- Bamboo is breathable and insulating
- It remains soft and smooth
- It is non-irritating, making it suitable for those with sensitive skin
- Bamboo absorbs a lot of moisture
Because the fabric absorbs moisture so well, sweat has no chance to convert into bacterial growth. Ecological bamboo socks are therefore very suitable for people who quickly suffer from sweaty feet.
