Silje Isabel is a new Norwegian clothing brand with production in Peru and Norway.

I use exclusive materials such as organic cotton and alpaca wool in our garments. The cotton is 100% organic and grown in Peru. Colors are either natural cotton colors like off-white, coffee and avocado or GOTS certified.

Since it has not been used artificial colorings, the garments in natural colors will be good for people who suffer from allergies caused by chemicals used for dyeing clothes. The stronger colors are GOTS- certified which stands for Global Organic Textile Standard. Some of the criteria are:

  • All chemical inputs (e.g. dyes, auxiliaries and process chemicals) must be evaluated and meeting basic requirements on toxicity and biodegradability/eliminability.
  • Prohibition of critical inputs such as toxic heavy metals, formaldehyde, aromatic solvents, functional nano particles, genetically modified organisms (GMO) and their enzymes. Hentet fra nettsiden http://www.global-standard.org/the-standard/general-description.html
