Made in What??



How do these toxic chemicals in my clothes become a thing??

A primary reason these toxic chemicals exist is due to the extensive processing fabrics undergo to become clothing suitable for everyday wear. These processes includes using: Detergents, Petrochemical Dyes, Formaldehyde, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), Dioxins(bleaches), Chemical Fabric Softeners. Although the end result of their use is at times fatal, many clothing companies carelessly still choose these routes because it is economically affordable on their end.


Its locked inside my clothes though, So Im good right?

False.

These toxins are absorbed through the skin when the skin is we

(fabrics worn during an intense workout is a good example of how this process works). Toxins absorbed through the skin bypass the liver(responsible for removing toxins out the body) and go straight into the body's blood stream inviting toxic build up to occur and procreate inside the body. This is because petrochemical fibers restrict and suffocate the skin shutting down the body's ability to release toxins and trigger allergic reactions as the following:

What Other Options Do I Have??

Here at Cultivated Society we only produce, create and host clothing that is both human and environmentally friendly. Our shirts are made out of hemp and blended with 100% organic cotton for a touch of familiarity. On top of that we used water based print ink. This alternative method to produce clothing significantly reduces the amount of pollution released into the environment and lowers the risk of developing harmful health issues. So why not give your body and closet a detox and shop with us today! :)
