HFS Collective's premium Eco-suedes are made from a combination of 30% plant based polyester and 70% post-industrial recycled polyester and post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, which help reduce plastic waste destined for landfills. This fabric is made using a pure recycling process and meets Oeko Tex Standard 100 certifications, which means it is free from organic solvents, odors, and environmental toxins such as formaldehyde, pesticides, chlorine, heavy metals, carcinogenic and allergy-inducing dyes.
HFS Collective uses organic cotton is GOTS certified and grown in a way that uses methods and materials that lessen the impact on our environment. A big effort in the organic cotton movement is to use growing systems that replenish and maintain soil fertility and build biologically diverse agriculture. Organic cotton is not treated with pesticides, insecticides, herbicides or Genetically Modified Organisms, all of which are toxins that are extremely harmful for farmers and workers, consumers, and entire wildlife eco systems.
