The cotton used in our garments is certified Organic by The Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS). From the harvesting of raw materials, through garment processing up to labeling, our processes are ensured to meet the global organic textile standards.
No chemical pesticides in the process of growing cotton. No added chemical stabilizers for the natural dyeing process.
Blara's plant dyes come from natural Chinese herbal medicines including Radix, Turmeric, and Tibetan Fruit. These herbs have antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-UV, and other similar benefits for humans. Besides, the dyeing process is chemical free and the resulting heavy metal content is much lower than North American and EU standards. Noteworthily, Blara's blue dye is extracted from Radix root, which can resist many types of viruses according to authorized Japanese experimentation.
The fabrics produced by organic cotton are soft, breathable and absorptive, which is much better than ordinary cotton fabric and wears like a second layer of skin with no confine.
In addition, plant-dyed fabrics can reduce skin discomfort caused by normal fabrics and are less prone to allergies, asthma or eczema
