Our Materials

We love natural materials, gorgeous patterns and luminous colors. This is mirrored in our fashion. And the mix of different materials is also kind of our thing. Imagine a silk dress with a bold, woolen belt: that would be the typical Afterglow outfit. 

// SILK​

good insulator, lightweight,
smooth, soft

Silk is a natural protein fibre, some forms of which can be woven into textiles. The protein fibre of silk is composed mainly of fibroin and is produced by certain insect larvae to form cocoons. The best-known silk is obtained from the cocoons of the larvae of the mulberry silkworm Bombyx mori.

// cotton

absorbent, lightweight, soft

Cotton is a soft, fluffy staple fibre that grows in a boll, or protective case, around the seeds of the cotton plants of the genus Gossypium in the mallow family Malvaceae. The fibre is almost pure cellulose.

// viscose

absorbent, lightweight, soft

Rayon is a synthetic fibre, made from natural sources of regenerated cellulose, such as wood and related agricultural products. It has the same molecular structure as cellulose.

// Linen

strong, absorbent, fast-drying

Linen is a textile made from the fibres of the flax plant. The word “linen” comes from the Latin name for flax, “linum usitatissimum.”

// Wool

crimp, elastic, fire resistant, soft, warm

Wool is the textile fibre obtained from sheep and other animals, including cashmere and mohair from goats, qiviut from muskoxen, hide and fur clothing from bison, angora from rabbits, and other types of wool from camelids. Wool consists of protein together with a small percentage of lipids.

// Bamboo Textile

elastic, biodegradable, antifungal, antibacterial, hypoallergenic

Bamboo textile is any cloth, yarn or clothing made from bamboo fibres.
