OUR SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS


We choose our materials with intention and care.
The Jungle Folk clothes are made from organic and renewable fibers, chosen with a focus on quality and longevity.

We are fascinated by the handwoven and the natural and we celebrate the beautiful simplicity of materials.


PEACE SILK

We source Peace Silk, also called Ahimsa silk, which means “nonviolence” in Sanskrit. In this animal-friendly process the silk moths are not harmed in the silk winning process.
The process is extremely labor intensive, however it provides employment benefits to the weavers and their families.
We work with a GOTS certified project in the north-eastern corner of India. The remote region on Jharkhand. The silk production there is a beautiful, all artisanal made process. The work of silk worm farming, spinning and weaving mostly beeing the only source of income for whole communities.

ALPACA WOOL

Alpacas are these marvelous animals living in the plains of the Andes in Peru and Bolivia from 3000 to 4200km height. We work with traditional alpaca productions which means it’s not mass-produced but rather small farmers holding few alpaca’s and shearing them by hand, letting them gaze on wide open spaces. The indigenous communities have been living with Alpaca in these steppes since the earliest times.

ORGANIC LINEN

Flax is a natural raw material, making linen one of the most sustainable textiles known to man. It is a very strong fibre and therefor long-lasting and we love it for its soft and cooling effect on the skin.

We work with wonderful organic linen projects from the Seine-et-Marne region in France. All our organic linen fabrics carry the GOTS label, a worldwide recognized standard for organic fibers and processes. After harvesting the linen is spun through mechanical processes. It is then woven in a traditional linen weaving factory in Belgium. Find out more about the process by watching this video from our Linen supplier.
