Steel – Safia Tencel Twill – 1/2 yard


 My ultimate favourite fabric to sew with, this twill has drape for days. A true medium-weight Tencel Twill that would hold up well anywhere from a swingy tank to luxurious culottes to a light trenchcoat, the Safia is matte, (giving it an almost sandwashed look), soft to the touch, durable and naturally moisture-wicking & breathable. I'm already a member of the head-to-toe Tencel club – join me? ;)

This twill was named after Safia Minney, the fair trade fashion pioneer (& featured in the True Cost documentary – a must watch). People Tree, her ethical fashion line, was one of the first to bring sustainable, fair-trade fashion into the gloabl spotlight –– and developed the first integrated supply chain for organic cotton! 

Sustainability: Tencel (a name-brand version of lyocell) fibres are made from sustainably-sourced beechwood (harvested from certified and controlled forests in Austria), and produced in a closed-loop process where over 99% of water and solvent are reused.
