Why do we like the Weird Fish website?
Disconnecting, getting outside, and taking advantage of all that the season has to offer. Weird Fish are always looking for fascinating, unique, and distinct materials that feel and look amazing. Now, the goal is to gain "Fame for Sustainable Fabrics." With sustainability driving advancements in textiles and fibers, we've been working diligently over the past two years to add more sustainable fabrics to the range. Some of these fabrics are manufactured from quite unexpected components, but they aren't weird; they're just different.
Weird Fish apparel uses sustainable textiles. The sustainable fashion movement is seeing a surge in the use of recycled polyester. Recycled polyester decreases landfill, which results in reduced soil contamination, air pollution, and water pollution.
Meet the earth-friendly EcoVeroTM, the new eco-friendly version of viscose. The sustainability spectrum gives EcoVeroTM a big thumbs up because it is made from renewable wood pulp and produced in an environmentally friendly manner. The production of EcoVeroTM uses 50% less energy, water, and emissions than standard viscose production. Why not adore it?
What do they create using only bamboo? This quickly regenerating grass is replenishable, doesn't need pesticides, is cut rather than uprooted so it's kind to the land, and is biodegradable. Its fibers can be spun and woven into an extremely soft fabric with UV protection, moisture management, and thermal control qualities that is friendly to skin.
Biodegradable, renewable, and natural. Organic cotton growing is better for the soil and less prone to ground water pollution because it doesn't use chemical pesticides or fertilizers. It produces 94% fewer greenhouse gases than traditional cotton farming and uses 80% rainwater.
Linen - The Egyptians adored this material for its antibacterial qualities, and it has been used for a very long time for a reason. It is one of the world's strongest natural fibers, which makes it last longer, and since it is made from the very adaptable flax plant, nothing is wasted.
Tencel fabrics are manufactured from wood pulp from quickly growing trees, are incredibly comfortable, are gorgeously cool to wear, and are biodegradable. Tencel received a European Award for the Environment in recognition of the method used to create this more environmentally friendly fabric.
EcoMacTM The famous, slowly spun, cotton-rich MacaroniTM fabric just got more environmentally friendly. The new eco-recipe combines organic cotton with recycled polyester and natural viscose. It's all a step in the direction of a future that is more sustainable.
It shouldn't come as a surprise that Weird Fish are passionate about the outdoors and the natural world. They are dedicated to protecting the natural world, which is why they have partnered with the RSPB since 2015 to aid in the protection of vulnerable birds and other animals.
