Product Details

Our hand-painted bamboo jacket is inspired by the Claire de Lune peony, a stunning flower named after the moonlight.

We hand paint each piece so there will be some variation between each item. We use soy wax and fabric-reactive dyes to create the pattern with a traditional technique, called batik. Here, we draw melted wax onto the fabric as a resist to the dye.

MATERIAL

100% Bamboo viscose

SUSTAINABLE

We make our hand-painted bamboo jacket from 100% bamboo viscose. Bamboo is grown without fertilisers and pesticides (unlike non-organic cotton which is heavily sprayed). This bamboo viscose is made in a closed loop system and the yarn is Oeko-tex certified as being free from harmful substances.

Soy wax is a renewable vegan alternative to paraffin and beeswax.
We use the ‘dye of choice’ for organic clothing manufacturers. It is metal-free, safe for the environment and is ideal for those with sensitive skin. The dyes do not bleed when the garment is wet and we take steps to minimise water use during the dyeing process. Furthermore, we only dye fabric to order, ensuring no wastage.

The labels we use are made from recycled fabric that is OEKO-TEX standard 100 certified. We also package the product in recycled paper.

A great resource on sustainable fashion is the Fashion Revolution, including information on what to consider when choosing where and what to buy. For example, which fabrics should you look for and which brands are making efforts to make their supply chains more transparent and ethical.

As a brand that value sustainability, we also strive to post informative content on sustainable matters on our Instagram account @fordandguy

    I purchased a hand-painted bamboo jacket as a Christmas present for my spouse. The jacket is stunning, and she absolutely loves it!
    As the jacket was meant to be a surprise, ford&guy worked directly with me to get the sizing right, and it fits perfectly.
    So, we are very happy. Thank you to ford&guy for making such beautiful and sustainable fashion.
