Wear Chemistry: Eco-friendly fashion

Beyond creating ethically crafted, sustainable garments, Wear Chemistry has become a champion for independence, science, and that which is original, artistic and inspired by real life.

They are dedicated to manufacturing clothing that looks good, feels good, and well, just is good.

Wear Chemistry clothing makes bold statements and encourages things that expand upon traditional thinking. As a result, each piece is hand-finished and customized to fit.

Wear Chemistry uses 70 percent bamboo and 30 percent cotton, a combination that is not only soft to the touch but also soothes and nourishes the skin.

Founded in 2010 in London, this innovative brand strives to take ethical practices and environmental responsibility beyond mere marketing messages, into the very fabric of their products.

To accomplish this, Wear Chemistry strictly upholds the following business practices:

No excessive working hours

No child labor

No forced labor

Safe and healthy working conditions

Legal employee labor contracts

Adequate wages

The right to collective bargaining and Freedom of association

No employee discrimination

Wear Chemistry also maintains a transparent manufacturing supply chain via the Fair Wear Foundation, which exists to encourage just labor conditions for the clothing industry.

Bamboo is one of Wear Chemistry's main sources of fabric, as it is one of the world's unique sustainable resources.

Classified as a grass and not a tree, bamboo is fast-growing and has anti-bacterial properties that eliminate the need for pesticides.

Wear Chemistry also uses cotton, which is 100% certified organic as determined by the Global Textile Standard.

All fabrics are died in treatment ponds that allow for wastewater to be filtered back into clean water, and all fabrics meet the highest test standards via Oeko-Tex-Standard 100 Class 1 guidelines, which verify the safety of dyestuffs and textiles for environmental concerns and general human health.
