In contrast to the industry-standard petroleum-based dyes, this shirt is dyed with natural plant dyes from chamomile, lavender, rose, myrobalan, and indigo leaf.
Flowers like lavender, chamomile and rose have been used for centuries for their ayurvedic properties. Clothing and fabrics dyed with these flowers are believed to aid in relaxation, helping to bring on a peaceful and deep sleep. In recent studies, these herbal flowers have been linked to reducing anxiety, improving memory and have even been linked with anti-cancer activity.
The dried fruits of myrobalan trees used for dyeing are commonly used in ayurvedic and traditional Tibetan medicine. Because myrobalan is very high in antoxidants, it has been used to protect against various age and heart related diseases.
Indigo leaf dye has been safely used for thousands of years (dating back to 2000-3000 B.C.) for its ability to make strong and beautiful blues. In the 1800s, natural indigo was almost completely replaced by synthetic indigo, which is derived from the known toxin aniline (a chemical that has been used to make rocket fuel).
Ethically made all the way through.
From start to finish, every company involved in Sustain's supply chain provides fair wages and safe working conditions.
