Organic Material

DezOrganic21_2

Which "Organic Material" do you work with? What makes this material sustainable? And what makes it better compared to conventional material?

Frank works with organic hemp and organic cotton. Our fabric mill is approved by The Organic Textile Standard, The Fair Wear Foundation, The Organic Cotton Standard, The Textile Exchange, and The Global Recycle Standard. Frank’s mill participates in several humanitarian efforts including garment donations to the Leprosy Project. Our hemp nourishes the earth. As the nutrient-dense plant matures, leaf matter falls to the ground and decomposes, replenishing the soil. Hemp is able to thrive off of rainwater. As Frank does its part to reduce waste, we encourage others to do the same.

Recycled Material

Which "Recycled Material" do you work with? What makes this material sustainable? And what makes it better compared to conventional material?

Frank's best-selling fabric is 90% recycled hemp. Not only is hemp a natural fiber, but hemp enhances soil health by shading out weeds, reducing the need for synthetic herbicides, and adding diversity to crop rotations. Hemp is becoming a leading eco fabric, as it uses next to no water during its growth period.

Eco/Tech Material

Which "Eco/Tech Material" do you work with? What makes this material sustainable? And what makes it better compared to conventional material?

Frank's eco materials are created to be luxurious and high quality while simultaneously being sustainable. Our fabric mill finds the newest innovations in low impact manufacturing each season. Franks' fabric mill uses EU approved dyes and chemicals in the dyeing and finishing process. The team carefully monitors and controls water waste. Grown without any harmful chemicals or pesticides, organic cotton keeps our oceans clean, eliminating the allergens found in conventionally grown cotton, providing our consumers with peace of mind when it comes to their environmental footprint.
