As everyday ticks by we become more conscious of the need to take care and conserve our planet. That is why we want to use more sustainable raw materials. Baluard Barcelona supports Eco Friendly Fabrics. Fabrics made using recycled materials, a practice which boosts both the circular economy and benefits other economies too. Or by using materials made with natural fibres, like cottons or EcoVero viscose. In short, our collection focuses on the use of fabrics that are within sustainability and efficiency parameters, that are regulated regarding harmful substances and that ensure that the working conditions of the employees are decent.

Velvet material made with a high percentage of cotton, 98%
Cotton is a vegetable textile fibre that grows around the seeds of the cotton plant. It is a natural, renewable, and biodegradable fibre and therefore a raw material with a high level of sustainability. Cotton is the most important natural fibre produced worldwide today and still represents nearly half of the world’s consumption of textile fibres.
Cotton velvet is very pleasant when in contact with the skin, it is very soft and has a distinct appearance. Cotton materials are very resistant and long-lasting.

NICKEL FREE Buttons
The term “Nickel Free” maybe rather confusing as accessories marked as nickel-free may in fact contain a very small amount of nickel. However, the amount is so small that extremely sensitive instruments are needed to measure it. The European Union (EU) Directive on nickel limits the quantity of nickel that the outer-shell of the accessories and other products can release. The types of measurements used are different to those for measuring the percentage of nickel existent in the composition of an alloy. The migration limits for nickel set out in the Directive are as follows: 0.5 micrograms per cm per week for other products designed to be in direct and prolonged contact with the skin.
All of the inner linings of the collection are made of 100% viscose
Viscose comes from cellulose (the pulp from tree wood). It is also known as rayon.
Viscose is spined into fabrics that are soft and light but with a heavy hang.
