Braintree is a label with high ideals and one that was founded with the aim of offering clothing that is stylish, environmentally friendly and affordable. That might sound like something of a challenge but it is one that has been successfully met by Braintree and can be seen in this collection of Braintree tops. This range features flattering and timeless styles that are extremely comfortable to wear and which are fashioned from sustainable, earth friendly fabrics.
The Materials That Make Braintree Tops
Braintree was initially based in Sydney, Australia but has now relocated to London. The team work hard to source the right textiles for their ranges which feature organic cotton, pure wool, recycled polyester, hemp and bamboo. The wonderful collection of Braintree tops and tunics have been made from 100% organic cotton and fabulous hemp.
Why is hemp fabulous? Well, this is a crop that requires little water and no chemicals to grow and to thrive. The resulting fibres are durable and comfortable to wear. They offer natural UV protection and have anti-bacterial properties. Organic cotton is an earth friendly choice too as it is grown without the use of chemical pesticides and fertilisers which leach into the ground water and pollute the soil.
Braintree works only with manufacturers and suppliers that work to a strict code of conduct and have ethical practices. Staff must be guaranteed good working conditions and a living wage. Fashion does not have to come at the expense of the environment or of those who make the clothes if you choose ethical ranges like those from Braintree. Braintree tops are certainly garments that can take pride of place in your wardrobe.
