Our Poppy trousers in cobalt blue organic silk are bold and unique! As part of our Sky Collection, they embody our values of comfort, statement and versatility. The Poppy trousers have a high elasticated waist, a loose fit and a wide-leg. There is a unique gathering detail on each hip and an in-seam pocket hidden within the gathering. We make our Poppy trousers in cobalt blue from an organic mulberry silk fabric. The elastic in the waist is an organic cotton and natural rubber elastic.
We hand make each set of trousers in our workshop in Nottingham, England. Each item is made-to-order, minimising fabric wastage.
100% organic mulberry silk.
We make these trousers from pure Mulberry silk that is Global Organic Textile Standard Certified (GOTS). A GOTS certification means that the fabric contains at least 70% organic natural fibres; it is not treated with bleach, formaldehyde or other toxic substances; it is coloured with non-toxic dyes, and is produced according to strict social and environmental standards. Silk is a natural fibre, made from the protein that some insects secrete to make cocoons. Being a natural fibre, it is therefore biodegradable.
At ford&guy, we source our silk in an un-dyed state and then dye each product to-order using non-toxic dyes that are nottested on animals and are approved by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Moreover, by dyeing each product to order, we are ensuring that we do not waste any material or dye.
The labels we use are made from recycled fabric that is OEKO-TEX standard 100 certified. We also package the product in recycled paper and ship using reusable and compostable mailbags.
