Have you ever wondered about the incredible journey that brings those soft and sustainable clothes into your wardrobe? Well, buckle up because we’re about to take you on a ride from the farm to your closet, exploring the fascinating world of plant-based fabrics like Modal, Tencel, Lotus, and more. So, grab your cup of tea and let’s dive in!

Modal: A Soft Touch from Beech Trees

First up, we have Modal – the fabric that proves trees are not only good at giving us fresh air but also fantastic fabrics! Made from the pulp of beech trees, Modal boasts an unbelievably soft texture that feels like a dream against your skin. The process involves sustainably harvesting the trees, turning the pulp into fibers, and using an eco-friendly manufacturing process. Modal is not only comfy but also breathable, making it perfect for everyday wear. 
    Tencel: Eucalyptus Elegance 

    Imagine clothing made from eucalyptus trees – that’s Tencel for you! Known for its silky-smooth feel, Tencel is produced using a closed-loop process that recycles water and solvents, minimising waste. It’s biodegradable and requires less water compared to traditional fabrics. The result? Luxurious clothing that’s kind to both you and the environment.


      Lotus Fabric: Nature’s Luxury

      Did you know that the lotus flower isn’t just beautiful to look at? Its stem fibres are transformed into exquisite textiles. Lotus fabric production is a labour of love, involving hand harvesting the stems, carefully extracting the fibers, and weaving them into elegant pieces. The end result is not only gorgeous but also sustainable, as the entire process respects the plant’s natural growth cycle.

        At Commnsens , we’re all about embracing the beauty of nature while creating stylish, conscious fashion.
