Why Modal?

Not only is Modal one of the most eco friendly fibres on earth, it's also one of the most comfortable. Modal is quickly becoming a popular alternative to cotton and synthetic fabrics and here are some reasons why:

Incredibly Soft. Unparalleled Comfort. Feels like silk! Helpful to those who have Tactile sensory processing sensitivities

Absorbent. 50% more absorbent that cotton which pulls moisture away from your skin

Breathable. Natural properties keep you cool/dry in summer & warm in winter.

More resistant to shrinkage. Modal is 50% more resistant to shrinkage than cotton.

Sustainable. Comes from sustainably harvested Beech Trees which are a renewable cellulosic plant. Higher yield per acre (less trees required), significantly less water consumption throughout production carrying into the lifespan with consumer

Biodegradable. A greener material that will return to the earth.

 

Further information:

Modal fabric is a soft fiber using the pulp from beech trees. You will often find it combined with cotton or spandex in clothing. It is considered a semi-synthetic because the raw material (cellulose) is a natural material which is then turned into fiber using a chemical process.

Here at FZ we work hard to choose better processes wherever we can to constantly be moving towards a better world for our environment and our people.

We have been learning about and pursuing manufacturers with"Oeko-tex Standard 100", "Eco-cert" & "Bluesign Certification" which tackles the roots of the textile industry's environmental impact. It eliminates or offers allternatives to harmful chemical substances and the safe & careful management of waste products and emissions (closed loop process).

We currently use 100% Modal, which you will see clearly written on product descriptions and care labels.

Care:

We recommend you handle delicately, machine wash cold, line or tumble dry (low), do not dry clean, do not iron (steam instead or low-medium iron on the wrong side of the fabric if needed to avoid creating shine marks on the outside), do not bleach or use softeners.
