HANNA FIEDLER is using only natural fibres such as Linen, Silk, organic Cotton and Wool. The skin is our largest organ reacting to what ever it gets in contact with, so choosing highest quality fabrics which are soft to the touch and made from natural fibres is essential for us.
We use wool because it is one of the most naturally technical materials in the world. It keeps you warm but it also breathes. It has antibacterial properties so it does not require frequent washing and can be refreshed by airing it outside. It is naturally water repellent, fire resistant and is long-lasting.
Silk – the material so soft it became an adjective. Not only is silk timelessly elegant, it also has flame retardant and antibacterial properties.
Organic cotton eliminates the use of toxic and persistent chemicals, improves soil health and increases water conservation. All of which is better for environment and for farmers and their communities.
Conventional cotton farming has a significant environmental impact. It requires toxic pesticides and fertilisers, which causes biodiversity loss and can damage farmers’ health. Cotton crops are also highly water-intensive. It can take more than 20,000 litres of water to produce 1kg of cotton; equivalent to a single T-shirt and pair of jeans.¹
Organic cotton farming offers a solution. It is a more balanced way of producing cotton that considers the whole ecosystem. Organic farming techniques use significantly less water as the crops are mainly rain-fed instead of irrigated. And because there are no toxic chemicals used in organic farming, there are no unnecessary toxins going into the ground. That enriches the soil and helps biodiversity flourish. Organic cotton farming is also beneficial to farmers. Under the right conditions, organic farming offers better livelihoods because farmers do not have to rely on expensive chemicals. Also, the premium prices paid for organic products helps farmers to increase their incomes. And not using hazardous pesticides and chemical fertilisers is better for farmers’ health.
