NoMiNoU’s ECO-FRIENDLY FABRIC & MATERIALS
All of our leggings, capris and shorts are made from a blend of 12% spandex and 88% recycled polyester, which is made from recycled PET (a 100% post-consumer recycled raw material that is derived from recycled post-water bottles). This is an eco-friendly fabric that provides ease of care and durability.
Our leggings and capris feature a French-style gusset for an ideal fit and overall look. Our scarves are printed with high quality methods to ensure that colours will not bleed or run.
Rather than treat our fabric with chemicals to achieve wicking and antibacterial properties, we use a 100% natural treatment called ChitoSante, which is the only antibacterial bio-agent in the world certified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. ChitoSanté is made from chitosan, a naturally-occurring fiber found in crab and shrimp shells. The makers of Chitosanté extract chitosan from these shells to create a substance that provides durable antibacterial and wicking properties to fabric. This ensures our fabrics remain hygienic and odour-resistant without requiring chemical treatment, and it also finds a new use for crustacean shells that would otherwise be thrown away as waste. Note: ChitoSanté is entirely safe for people with shellfish allergies because it is non-protein based.
