Rooted Silky Modal
Modal is a bio-based fabric made from spinning reconstructed beech-tree pulp.
Beech trees do not require much water to grow and are a regenerative plant which makes modal a good eco-friendly material. Although the fabric is plant-derived, the production process does include soaking the cellulose material derived from the beech tree pulp in chemicals, which results in modal being classified as a semi-synthetic fabric. But do not worry, modal is still totally biodegradable.
Our modal fabric is ultra-soft, smooth, and silky because it is 10% silk. The silk manufacturing process can be harmonious and low impact. Silkworms live off of mulberry trees; they feed on the leaves and in turn, the farmers can feed on the worms.
The fabric is 44″ (112cm) in width.
