Wide-Width Sustainable Sheer
ALOE is a ground-breaking, washable, wide-width drapery textile, 60% of which is Aloe vera and 40% organic cotton. Aloe vera is more sustainable than conventional materials as the plant grows with no chemicals or fertilisers and does not require any watering.
To create the Aloe vera yarn, the gel from the plants is extracted, then pulled, heated and pressed. This creates a substance which is then shredded to produce a fleece-like material that is spun.
Organic cotton is then combined with the Aloe vera to create an ultra-smooth, contemporary drape with an elegant character. Organic cotton is more sustainable than regular cotton as it uses no pesticides or fertilisers, which is better for the local environment and farmers. Compared to regular cotton, the production process is more energy efficient, therefore releasing fewer greenhouse gases and because of the improved soil quality, uses significantly less water. This product is Oeko-Tex certified, which means the fabric is free of harmful chemicals.
The transparency of the ALOE sheer allows light to filter through, creating minimal blocks of colour. A calming neutral palette is punctuated with on-trend shades such as Acid Yellow and Cobalt Blue. ALOE can also be hung vertically or horizontally.
