For vegan brides it can be challenging to find robes that have that soft, natural and yet possess the luxurious feel of silk. Well, today I bring you good news. When you have that need, you should definitely slip into one of Sage and Stars bamboo silk robes.
I’ve had my hands on bamboo silk and I can guarantee you it is really a soft and gentle textile to the skin. And there are more reasons to love bamboo silk. It is a breathable textile, fast growing and does not require replanting. It is regarded as highly renewable and sustainable. Bamboo requires no pesticides for growth and supplies 30% more oxygen than trees.
Sage and Stars bamboo silk is grown organically in India and its textiles are safely dyed in England using GOTS approved non-azo dyes, ensuring the production process is eco-friendly.
The art of extracting color from plants, dating back to 2600 BC, has been replaced by the use of chemicals and synthetic dyes that are not only bad for the environment, but can also cause allergies. Using plants to dye fabrics, Sage and Stars not only celebrates the natural beauty of the environment but also provides delicate colors with slight variations and pigmentations that are unique to each of their garments.
Sage and Stars lace is produced in Derbyshire, using traditional manufacturing methods that trace back to 250 years ago.
Robes are definitely one of the trendiest garments when planning a bridal shower or bachelorette pigiama-party style, and make great bridesmaid gifts. Not to mention it’s such a necessity on your honeymoon and around the house on lazy Sunday mornings. Plus, it is comfortable yet feminine. Sage and Stars just brings it to a newer level, with their thoughtful choice of materials, to bring you that luxe feel a bride deserves! To shop their looks visit their website.
