Sustainably-minded practices in the fashion industry, unfortunately, are not the norm.
At FARA, we’re mindful of the impact fashion has on the environment and seek to take advantage of the resources available to us in order to create collections in a sustainably-minded way. We stay up to date with the ever-changing landscape that is “sustainable” fashion and make choices that are in alignment with our vision of a more sustainable future for the business.
Our collections are made using natural, biodegradable fabrics. Silk and both hemp and satin modal are incredibly luxurious fabrics, both strong and long-lasting whilst also compostable. They return to the soil once their lifecycle ends unlike plastics, used by fast fashion brands, which pollute the waterways, our earth and our bodies.
The raw silk we use is woven by traditional artisans in the Holy City of Varanasi, the birthplace of raw silk. It is unprocessed and beautiful in its pure form with a similar texture to linen.
We use AZO-free dyes, meaning our dyes don’t include harmful and toxic chemicals like bleach and nitrogen or have any carcinogenic compounds. Our process and our pieces are created to love and protect our bodies and the environment.
