Sourcing our Fabrics

When selecting fabrics for the Applepip Project we look at a few different factors. We consider the quality of the fiber itself, sustainable manufacturing practices and the cost to the consumer. Ultimately our aim to is to supply a quality product at a reasonable price. Primarily we focus on natural fibers and we ensure that these fabrics have been sustainably and safely manufactured. Many of the fabrics we have in store meet OEKO-TEX standard 100, meaning each element of the fabric or garment carries no substances that are harmful to human health. Products that carry this certification are regularly and rigorously tested and often exceed regulated standards. Occasionally we will have fabrics that have a synthetic component and this will be because they are simply fabulous and we must have them! If you have any concerns about the origins of any of our products please contact us for more information.
