Sustainable Materials [EDBACKUP]

Our materials

We are proud to have our fabrics made in Portugal and Turkey for over 15 years. Through our regular visits to the production facilities, we guarantee our high ecological standards.
sustainable natural fiber for our fashion

Over 90% natural fibers

We already manufacture the majority of your products from natural fibers such as cotton, linen or hemp. Our long-term goal is to only use natural fibers.

NOORLYS stands for quality. So we don't want your new hoodie to be a size smaller after three washes. Therefore, for durability reasons, we use an admixture of recycled polyester in some fabrics. Together with our producers, we are constantly developing our fabrics in order to be able to achieve our goal in the future of being able to completely do without synthetic fibers without having to sacrifice quality.

Noorlys does not use plastic in its fashion

Plastic isn't fantastic

It is estimated that ten million tons of plastic end up in the world's oceans every year. It is believed that more than 90 million tons of plastic have ended up in the sea. More than 3,000 marine animal species worldwide are affected by our plastic waste. Seabirds swallow plastic parts and build plastic in their nests, especially leftovers from fishing nets.

We do not want to contribute to further environmental pollution. That is why we only use recycled materials for synthetic fibers and do not use individual packaging. Our clothes reach you unpackaged.

fair and ecological coloring of our fabrics for your hoodie

We color fair

As with the selection of our producers, we also look for the best working conditions, excellent quality and, above all, that our high ecological standards are met when choosing our dye works.

Each fiber type requires its own dyeing process. In the case of mixed fabrics, such as cotton/polyester mixtures, the fabric must be dyed twice. Therefore, for ecological reasons, we rely as much as possible on fibers that only require a dyeing process. Our dye works in Portugal work with the most modern machines and sewage treatment plants. It is GOTS and ÖKO TEX certified. Fish even live in the treated water of our dye works - the best proof that the water is clean again and does not pollute the environment.

We use the following organic & recycled materials for our favorite NOORLYS pieces:
Noorlys organic cotton from fair cultivation for our garments

organic cotton

To maintain and improve natural soil fertility, organic cotton is fertilized with manure and compost. This increases the humus content of the soil, which can store more water and carbon dioxide.

Organic cotton farmers have to follow a crop rotation, a rotation with other crops. Sowing other plants at the same time also avoids the unnecessary use of pesticides, for example sunflowers are planted around the cotton fields in certain regions. These attract pests such as the boll weevil and thus prevent infestation of the cotton plants.

Linen from controlled ecological cultivation for your sweatpants

Linen

The properties of the natural fiber linen are: The fiber is easy to divide, easy to spin, smooth and encloses little air. These properties ensure that linen is lint-free, stain-resistant, bactericidal and anti-static.

The flax plant needs a maritime climate and is susceptible to frost, so the farmer should sow flax early. Proximity to the coast is optimal, which is why in Germany there are only growing areas for linen in the north.

With controlled organic cultivation, there is no change in the traditional cultivation method. Constant contact with the water is very important, otherwise the plant threatens to dry up.

Hemp as a natural fiber for your hoodie

hemp

Hemp is one of the most exciting fibers that nature has given us. The plant does not need any pesticides, since its own smell alone repels the pests. Of all natural fibers, hemp has the greatest durability and moisture resistance.

By mechanically processing the fabrics with pumice stones, a whole new generation of hemp fabrics was created that are strong yet supple and soft.

Bamboo as a sustainable, fast-growing natural fiber

bamboo

Rapid growth, no fertilizers, pesticides and no replanting: bamboo reproduces quickly, almost like a weed, and this avoids further expansion of agricultural land and destruction of forests.

It is one of the most sustainable natural fibers in the world. Much less water is used for planting than cotton, its yield is 10 times greater than the yield obtained from cotton. Bamboo as a plant produces over 35% more oxygen than a comparable area of ​​trees, absorbs a lot of carbon dioxide, is biodegradable and has hypoallergenic ingredients. The material is comfortable, flowing, wrinkle-free, opaque and easy-care.

Eucalyptus fiber for very durable clothing

eucalyptus fiber

A so-called "man-made cellulose fibre" is produced from eucalyptus, i.e. a fiber industrially produced from natural raw materials. It is made from Asian eucalyptus wood from sustainable forestry and is biodegradable.

The fiber has an extraordinarily smooth surface with a silky feel, warms almost as well as new wool, cools like linen and is more absorbent than cotton. This fiber is extremely tear-resistant even when wet, making it a very durable material.

Seaqual Recycled plastic from the sea for the sustainability of our fashion

seaqual

Unlike the ubiquitous recycled polyester made from plastic bottles collected on land, Seaqual yarns are based on plastic waste from the seabed.

Seaqual is a comprehensive partner network to which 400 fishermen and their boats hand over their plastic by-catch and which is processed into sustainable fabrics in spinning and weaving mills using the upcycling process. They are all committed to the goal of cleaning up the sea and producing ecologically compatible yarns, fibers and fabrics.
