Since day one, PHILE has committed itself to fostering mindful consumption habits, presenting collections that are lasting in both quality and style. We are highly aware that sustainability improvement is an ongoing process that is never finished. Each part of the value chain is important and all steps, small to big, have an impact on people, animals and our planet.
Linen and cotton, like cashmere, are high quality fibres that have been used for thousands of years. They are durable, breathable and above all, natural, only improving with age as they soften through use. Our cotton products are manufactured as naturally and ethically as possible by a small business based out of Northern China using OEKO-TEX certified fabric, meaning they are completely free from harmful chemicals. If you want to find out more about the certification you can read more at oeko-tex.com.
All PHILE orders are packaged using 100% cardboard and brown kraft paper and sealed with water-activated tape to encourage recycling.
Please note the products are handcrafted and tinted, therefore any slight differences in shape, size, colour compared to our images should be considered as peculiarities of craft production.
Organic cotton runs the risk of shrinking with washing because it has not been chemically treated. To avoid this, use cold wash or set your water temperature to a maximum of 30 degrees celsius.
MACHINE WASH. Separate white, dark, and coloured garments. Use a normal or mild detergent, and do not bleach. To maintain the fluffy, buoyant texture of the muslin cotton, re-shape while damp and air dry. Do not iron.
