When buying a dress, it is customary to evaluate its beauty and fit on an additional feature that your clothing should have: being made from natural fibers.
Let’s find out which are the most common eco-friendly clothing fabrics that, due to their nature and the type of processing they undergo, also have a low environmental impact. The most popular natural plant textile fibers are cotton, linen, silk, wool, cashmere, hemp and luta. Natural fibers are divided into two categories: animal and plant fibers. Plant fibers obtained from the seeds, leaves or bark of trees, and animal fibers obtained from fleece, hair or secretions.
The quality of the material used to make our garments is something we care about, which is why you will also find an article on our blog about the secrets and origins of raw materials.
Why choose natural fibers?
Choosing a product made from natural textile fibers means respecting ourselves and also the environment around us as their production is much greener than synthetic fabrics.
The reason Mandelli recommends using natural textile fibers is their thermoregulatory qualities, capable of regulating the body’s internal temperature while keeping it constant.
For example, wool can absorb and maintain a constant temperature, while silk promotes perspiration and stays dry.
Clothing made of natural fibers is also able to absorb moisture and quickly release it outside, creating ventilation that promotes exudation: qualities that synthetic fibers do not have.
For summer clothes, natural fibers are preferred over a classic polyester T-shirt, because the latter by retaining sweat only increases the perception of heat to our body. Choosing clothing made from natural fibers also means standing up for the environment. In fact, during the processing of natural textile fibers, organic waste is generated, which is then used to make environmentally friendly recycled materials with high biodegradability.
Mandelli’s collections offer a wide selection of clothing made from natural fibers suitable for all circumstances-from work to leisure.
