The most sustainable fabric
Lotus fabric has unique properties: it is naturally soft, light, especially breathable, and almost wrinkle free. It is also a very eco-friendly fabric containing no chemicals or toxic products.

Furthermore, we ensure not using any polluting energy during the entirety of the production process.
conducted in remote villages enabled Samatoa to bring back to life long forgotten skills. Thousands of years ago, the art of creating lotus fabrics was widely spread, but then forgotten.

And to weave lotus textile using the fiber contained in those stems.
