Why You Need To Be Wearing Natural Fibres This Summer

December 06, 2018

Wearing natural fibres = Healthier living

Did you know that the type of fabric you wear on your skin can often benefit the way you feel on the inside? Studies have shown natural fibres can help your body breath, regulate heat + even prevent bacterial growth. From linen to leather, we source all our fabrics ethically. We travel far and wide to make sure we bring you the best product we can - from the composition + development of the fabric right down to the makers who sew the last seam.


The sassind COTTON collection

Cotton is one of the most widely used fabrics in the world. So although readily available to all, there are certain strains that are better than others. We use 100% organic cotton where possible, it's softer and more breathable nature feels great against your skin + can withstand every day wear due to its strength, durability and absorbency. Unlike synthetic fabrics, cotton will not emit electricity, prematurely age or trap perspiration.


The sassind LINEN collection

Made from the fibres of the flax plant, linen is highly absorbent and tends to lose the water it wicks away removing perspiration from the skin. A  favourite in the warmer months, linen resists dirt and stains, softens more after every wash and is stronger than cotton. It contains a natural bacterial and antiseptic properties that prevent bacterial growth, it also is a great conductor of heat - keeping the heat in yet in hot surroundings feels cool to the touch.

 

 

The sassind SILK collection

Silk is a natural fibre obtained from cocoons made by the larvae of silkworms. Its prized 'shine' comes from a fibre structure that allows light to be reflected at different angles. Soft + luxurious, silk is also the most hypoallergenic of all fabrics due to its natural protein structure. A highly absorbent material, silk will absorb perspiration while letting your skin breath, it dries fast and with its smooth surface resists odour.

 

The sassind WOOL collection

Wool refers to any fibre obtained from a sheep or other animal and can range from thick and scratchy to fine and soft. Prized for its ability to retain warmth, it offers breathability, temperature regulation and like linen, contains antimicrobial properties. Studies have shown that those who sleep in and on wool have a sounder nights rest.
