Organic Eco Elastic

The first ever sustainable ecological elastic was discovered because of the challenge to find an Eco-friendly alternative to conventional polyester elastics for the clothing industry. This vision was shared between German designers, Austrian manufacturers and Turkish organic cotton growers who were able to put together a range of elastics made from certified organic cotton and natural rubber. We are now able to offer these plastic free elastics for personal and commercial use.

  • Certified organic Turkish cotton and natural Malaysian rubber
  • Available in different widths and colours
  • Washable from 40 to 60 (depending on which elastic)
  • Approx. 5% shrinkage
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Biodegradable
  • Recyclable
  • Tested against chlorine and heat
  • Complies with the EU toy safety standards EN71-3 and EN71-12
  • A longer life span than comparable conventional polyester elastics
  • Commercially available in 100m lengths or by the metre for personal use.
  • Made in Austria, designed in Germany and stocked in Warwickshire.

In just a few weeks of our UK launch the feedback has been really encouraging and we are delighted to be part of the move away from conventional polyester elastics towards a more responsible, sustainable future.

  2. Hi there

    Love this idea.

    How long does it take for the Malaysian rubber to degrade?

    1. Hello!
      The did a time lapse video of one of their garments which they composted with the natural organic elastic and from memory it was about 6 months.
      Best wishes

    2. Lauren Finn at Dear Planet intimates has done some brilliant research into this and it takes about 6 weeks. Lauren has some great photos of decomposing underwear – look up zero waste lingerie on Instagram.
