our sustainable fabrics & environmental responsibility
Alchemy uses environmentally friendly, sustainable fabrics as much as possible, including: Organic Cotton, Bamboo & Recycled Indian Saris. With our Bamboo and Organic Cotton Collections, we use water-based, AZO free dyes and non-toxic biodegradable softeners - these have the lowest possible impact on the environment.

Our new FLYING HEART Collection is GOTS Organic Certified: our entire organic textiles supply chain is inspected annually, and certified to uphold the highest environmental and fair labour standards.

ORGANIC COTTON:
Our organic cotton fabric is sourced from GOTS Certified Organic farms in South India. It is super-soft, pre-shrunk, colourfast and machine washable. The Benefits of Organic Cotton:
* Organic cotton does not use genetically modified seeds.
* Organic cotton doesn’t use pesticides, fungicides or herbicides.
* Organic farming promotes a healthy ecosystem, and helps maintain bio-diversity. Frequent crop rotations and cover crop strategies replace synthetic fertilizers to keep the soil healthy and productive.
* Soil of organic cotton has an increase in organic matter, which retains more moisture, that means using less water.

RECYCLED SARI FABRIC:
A sari is a 5 metre piece of fabric traditionally worn by Hindu women. Alchemy uses thousands of recycled Indian saris every year. In India, hundreds of jobs are created within the used sari market, and women throughout the country can make extra money by selling their old fashions. We also further recycle this sari fabric by using leftover pieces to make bags, scarves & hairbands.

The Alchemy Difference:
Each year in the deserts of Rajasthan, India, Trish takes the time to hand-select each and every pure silk and soft nylon sari used in our collection. We use only super-soft saris in the most beautiful colours and delicate prints! Alchemy’s recycled sari pieces are quality, one-of-a-kind works of wearable art. These pieces carry a vibration from the women who once wore the saris – one is often attracted to a particular piece without knowing why. 

BAMBOO:
The fabric in our Bamboo-Organic Cotton Collection is a custom blend of 47% bamboo mixed with 47% organic cotton and 6% lycra. Bamboo fibres make this fabric exceptionally soft, also making it “breathe” very well - bamboo wicks moisture naturally away from the skin.
The benefits of Bamboo:
*Bamboo is a fast-growing, drought and flood-resistant grass that does not require the use of any pesticides or herbicides.
*Growing bamboo improves soil quality and helps rebuild eroded soil.
*Bamboo plants absorb about 5 times the amount of carbon dioxide and produce about 35% more oxygen than an equivalent stand of trees.
*The bamboo we use is processed in the same eco-friendly manner - in a closed-loop system where 99% of the bio-degradable solution used is reclaimed and reused in the next batch.
