Types of Blended Natural Fibers Fabrics
There are many different types of handmade natural fabrics available on the market, but the most popular include cotton, and silk. Kapok and banana are one of the most ecologically friendly and durable fibers on the planet. Cotton is a commonly used fabric, but sees most of its use mixed in with other synthetic fibers. Lotus is known as the ‘rich-mans’ fabric because of its rarity. Silk are derived from animal by-products and are incredibly comfortable for wear.
Our blended natural fibers fabrics provide unique properties for exclusive clothing, accessories and home decoration.
Samatoa uses many different ways to spin, knit, and manoeuvrer natural fibers into a useable pattern. The most common methods for handmade techniques include hand-knitting with nettles, hand-held knitting with looks, and hand-weaving with various tools. The act of turning natural fiber into clothing or fabric dates back thousands of years, and the practice is still around today.
Advantages of our Blended natural fibers fabrics
Proponents of natural fabrics note the ecological, non-allergenic and unique properties of the process as advantages. When it comes to ecological benefits, natural fabrics easily beat out man-made products. Natural fiber comes from renewable resources, produces little to no carbon output, is 100% biodegradable, and produces beneficial waste that can be harvested to create energy or it can be turned into organic household materials. These benefits give back to the environment, as opposed to taking from it.
Additionally, natural fabrics are non-allergenic and reduce the risk of skin rashes and irritations caused from unnatural clothing fabrics. This is great news for people who suffer from allergic reactions caused by synthetic clothing.
There are truly hundreds of different reasons why natural fabrics are far more beneficial for the environment, people, and economy. Consider natural fiber fabric the next time you go shopping, and do the environment some good.
