F-ABRIC is made of the bast fibres of hemp and flax as well as Modal, all of which are resources that are grown on European soil and do not harm it or require excessive amounts of water to grow. Compared to the production processes of more common textiles, the journey from fibre to finished product is just a short trip for F-ABRIC since all of the production stages take place within a 2500-kilometer radius of Freitag’s factory in Zurich.
As few chemicals as possible are used during the cultivation and further processing of F-ABRIC, which corresponds to Product Class I of the Oeko-Tex Standard.
F-ABRIC textiles are 100% naturally biodegradable – including threads and selvage. A piece of clothing thus becomes fertile soil for new raw materials and the cycle continues.
The material in the photos consist of 81% linen and 19% hemp.
