Exploring Plant-Based Fabrics: Eco-Friendly, Biodegradable, and Animal-Friendly

Discover eco-friendly and animal-friendly plant-based fabrics like cotton, linen, hemp, jute, and soybean. Learn about their qualities and find sustainable fabric options for your wardrobe at our online store.

In a world increasingly conscious of environmental and ethical concerns, plant-based fabrics are emerging as a top choice for those seeking an eco-friendly and cruelty-free wardrobe. These fabrics not only offer comfort but also help reduce the adverse impact on animals, people, and the environment. In this article, we'll explore various plant-based fabrics, their characteristics, and how you can make sustainable choices in your clothing selections.


Cotton, a hypoallergenic fabric, is perfect for individuals with sensitive skin. It boasts exceptional softness, comfort, breathability, and absorbency, making it a popular choice for clothing. While it's not the most durable option, its natural qualities make it a sustainable choice.


Derived from the flax plant, linen requires less water and fewer pesticides compared to cotton. This sustainable fabric becomes softer with each wash, offering moderate comfort, durability, and excellent breathability.

Hemp Hemp, grown without pesticides or chemical fertilisers, is another eco-friendly option. It boasts natural UV-resistance and antimicrobial qualities, making it an excellent choice for those seeking sustainability and durability in their clothing.


Jute, one of the most affordable natural fibres, is versatile and durable. Although it may not be the softest or most comfortable option, it still provides decent breathability and absorbency.


Soybean fibres, a byproduct of tofu production, mimic the softness and lustre of silk with the comfort of cashmere. While not as durable, soybean fabric offers unmatched softness and lightweight comfort.
