“Lotus is one of the most ecological fabrics, even more ecological than organic cotton which consumes a lot of water and can cause environmental damage. The lotus doesn’t require any added water, they grow in a natural ecosystem that is totally renewable. The process of making lotus fabric doesn’t impact negatively on the environment at any step. Furthermore, we give added value to the plant by using all the parts of it.”
