Orange Fabric

Orange Fiber, a patented material derived from citrus juice by-products, offers a sustainable solution to the vast waste generated by the citrus fruit industry. Utilizing lightweight citrus cellulose yarn, it creates a 100% biodegradable fabric that is luxuriously soft and silky. Despite its unconventional origin, this fabric provides environmental, social, and health benefits, making it a valuable addition to the fashion and textile sector. Infused with natural oils containing vitamins A, C, and E, it nourishes the skin upon contact, promoting well-being.

Nanotechnology ensures that essential oils and vitamin C from citrus fruit peel are retained in the fabric, enhancing its health properties. Moreover, its production process adopts a closed-loop system, recycling 99% of water and solvent, thus minimizing waste and harmful byproducts. Unlike rayon, which employs toxic solvents, orange fabric utilizes organic solvents like amine oxide, ensuring non-toxicity and recyclability.

The closed-loop production not only reduces water and chemical usage but also minimizes runoff, aligning with ultra eco-sustainable practices akin to Tencel. By embracing Orange Fiber, the textile industry advances towards eco-consciousness and resource efficiency, forging a path towards a more sustainable future.

Organic cotton, derived from non-GMO plants, is cultivated without synthetic agricultural chemicals like fertilizers or pesticides. It aims to bolster biodiversity and biological cycles.


The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) ensures organic textile integrity, encompassing raw material harvesting to environmentally conscious manufacturing, facilitating credible consumer assurance. As the premier processing standard, GOTS mandates environmental and social compliance across the supply chain. GOTS certification demands a minimum of 70% organic fibers in textile products, with stringent criteria for chemical inputs and accessory choices. Mandatory wastewater treatment and adherence to social standards further underscore GOTS' commitment to sustainability.

GOTS-certified cotton eschews chemical pesticides, prioritizing environmental and worker well-being. Beyond pesticide-free cultivation, GOTS mandates safer working conditions, fair wages, and respect for labor rights. Upheld by independent accrediting bodies, GOTS ensures accountability and transparency in production practices. Embracing GOTS-certified organic cotton embodies a sustainable ethos, offering softness, longevity, and environmental stewardship. This conscientious choice promotes skin health, ecological harmony, and equitable labor conditions, aligning with international labor organization standards. GOTS' comprehensive framework fosters a textile industry that is both eco-conscious and socially responsible.


GOT Certified Organic Cotton


According to the European Confederation of Linen and Hemp, “Across its lifecycle, a linen shirt uses 6.4 liters of water” compared to 2,700 liters for a cotton shirtThe United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation state that flax uses 13 times fewer pesticides than potatoes, but is only approximately 1% of the world’s apparel fiber consumption.

Growing flax and weaving it into linen is the least water and energy-intensive part of the linen clothing life cycle. To make one shirt from cotton requires around 4 times the amount of water than is needed to make one shirt from linen.

Linen is 100% biodegradable and recyclable. However, as with any natural material you should be careful about how the fabric might have been treated, particularly the environmental impact of some dyes. Therefore, Sustainably U stays close to natural colors only.

At Sustainably U we use Italian linen, known for its high quality and superior craftsmanship, often distinguished by its fine texture, softness, and luxurious feel.

Linen: Sustainable and stylish fashion for the modern world.


Tencel: The sustainable fabric that's soft, durable, and good for the planet
Lyocell sustainble fiber TENCEL regenerated


Lyocell is sustainable fiber made from wood pulp using an advanced spinning process, and TENCEL™ is simply a brand name for a type of lyocell (think Band-Aid to bandages). There are many types of lyocell in the world, but Tencel tops as one of the most innovative types of lyocell.

The creation process of Tencel is unique in that Tencel is created through environmentally sustainable processes from natural raw wood, referred to as “regenerated cellulose”. This is a process by which raw wood is harvested, broken into wood pulp, dissolved in a chemical solvent, and then pushed through an extruder to form the fibers. The result? Fibers that are ultra plush and soft, like little wisps of cloud.

Here are some of the most notable traits about Tencel lyocell:

Tencel fibers are long laster, wrinkle resistant, and easy to take care of.

Incredibly comfortable and silky to the touch, Tencel's softness cannot be beat.

Tencel has superior moisture wicking abilities to keep your skin cool and comfortable.

Extremely breathable to prevent trapping any sweat during the night.

Naturally anti-bacterial to prevent growth of bacteria and banish unwanted breakouts.

Created in a closed loop process where 99% of water and solvent is reused and recycled.
