why you should go natural
natural fibers tend to age better than Synthetic fibers
Have you ever wondered why your favorite cotton shirt or leather jacket seems to age so much better than your synthetic garments? It turns out that natural materials have unique properties that allow them to age gracefully and even improve in quality over time.
According to a report from the European Apparel and Textile Confederation, natural fibers such as cotton, wool, silk, and leather have a high resistance to wear and tear and can maintain their structure and shape even after years of use. This is due to the natural crimp in fibers, which creates a three-dimensional structure that helps to resist wrinkles and keep the garment's shape intact.
In contrast, synthetic materials such as polyester, nylon, and acrylic do not have this natural crimp and are more susceptible to wear and tear. They are also more prone to pilling and losing their shape, which can result in an unflattering and worn-out look after just a few wears.
As noted in an article by Fashion United, natural materials' durability and aging properties make them a sustainable choice for fashion. By choosing high-quality natural materials, consumers can invest in pieces that will last for years, reducing the need to constantly replace worn-out garments and contributing to a more sustainable fashion industry.

The benefits of silk
Silk, for example, is a natural protein fiber that is renowned for its beauty and longevity. Silk has a unique ability to maintain its luster and strength even after years of use. Its natural properties allow it to resist wrinkles, odors, and bacteria, making it a low-maintenance and durable option.
The benefits of wool
Wool, another natural fiber, is known for its insulating and moisture-wicking properties. It has a natural crimp that helps it maintain its shape and resist wrinkles, making it an excellent choice for sweaters, coats, and other cold-weather garments. Additionally, wool has a natural resistance to stains and odors, which means it requires less washing and can maintain its quality over time.
The benefits of cotton
Cotton, a popular natural fiber, is renowned for its comfort and versatility. Its natural properties make it soft, breathable, and hypoallergenic, making it an excellent choice for clothing and bedding. Cotton also has a natural ability to absorb moisture, which means it can resist mold and mildew growth and maintain its quality over time. It is, however, important to note that cotton is a fiber that needs a lot of water to be grown, by this reason it is important to make sure that the cotton used is not treated with toxic chemicals that affect our ecosystems and the people working with it.
