Sustainability

PLANT BASED DYES AND RECYCLED WATER SYSTEMS

Our beautiful colours are from Environmentally Friendly Natural Dyes. No additions or transformations and no harmful substances for the planet. Flowers, vegetal waste and mineral sources make up our dyes giving each product a unique character.

When you choose Megosa you choose to

  • protect the environment from harm caused by synthetic dyes
  • empower small and rural communities who source the raw dye material
  • contribute toward low waste when natural by-products are used for dyes

We dye using a recycled water system and only dye finished products as we work toward zero waste.

 

FABRIC

Megosa is obsessed with quality fabrics and chooses each material with care. 

The 3D KNIT capsule is made from 83% TENCEL ™ branded Modal. Blending TENCEL ™ Modal with other fibres significantly improves softness, enhancing overall comfort. It's supported by a sturdy branded Recycled Polyamide called Q-Nova®,12%. We also use 5% Elastane to achieve that fit we love.

 

TENCEL™ Modal ­fibres are mainly manufactured from the renewable source of raw material beech wood, sourced from sustainable forests in Austria and neighbouring countries.

We love working with TENCEL ™ branded modal because it's environmentally friendly, a natural fibre, is from sustainable production and it feels so good!

   

 

3D KNIT

This has been our fascination for quite some time. Yarn is directly knitted into garments significantly reducing waste as fabric cutting is almost eliminated. Compared to the industry standard of fabrics cut and sewn, this is a much kinder option for our planet. 

 

SUPPLY CHAIN
