James Tailoring - Eco Elastic
We had been looking for an alternative to conventional elastic for quite some time. Conventional elastic is an amazing material which absolutely changed the fashion industry forever. Unfortunately, conventional elastic is also one of the worst materials for the environment. It doesn’t degrade well and after it’s useful life, ends up in the landfill.
It took us about a year to find an environmentally friendly alternative and the people at James Tailoring are the geniuses that found the solution. Their “elastic” or as we like to call it, eoc-elastic, contains a blend of natural latex and organic cotton. About 65% to 35%, respectively. Absolutely no plastic is used in the production process and its 100% biodegradable! On top of that, the entire process is GOTS certified!
