The story of our signature fabric

We wanted to create a fabric that was exceptionally soft and safer than regular materials. Our signature fabric is naturally breathable, thermoregulating & moisture-wicking, keeping little ones at the perfect temperature day & night, through every season.

Before launching MORI in 2015, our founder Akin used his knowledge & heritage in textiles to perfect the fabric, made using the natural materials organic cotton & bamboo from viscose

What goes into making our signature fabric?

Organic cotton + bamboo from viscose + caring craftsmanship = supersoft, breathable & thermoregulating fabric 

  • Step 1 - dried cotton & bamboo 

Our bamboo is a highly sustainable resource grown in China & our organic cotton comes from Turkey, which is GMO-free & supports sustainable development programs for workers. 

  • Step 2 - bamboo cotton pulp

In the environmentally conscious facilities of our experienced mills, the raw bamboo is crushed and the cotton is cleaned. The two ingredients are then heated with limited chemicals & water to create a pulp. The pulp is dried and separated into sheets. 

  • Step 3 - bamboo cotton fiber

The sheets of fiber are then mechanically combed out and spun into yarn using a spinneret. This is then wound onto bobbins ready for weaving into our softest fabric. 

The result is a unique blend of 30% organic cotton & 70% bamboo from viscose. The fabric is easy to care for & sustainable which is gentle on a baby or toddler’s sensitive skin. 

Why we chose organic cotton

At MORI, we want to be kind to the world we live in & make our clothes with love. Not only is it softer than regular cotton, but organic cotton is also grown using methods that have a low environmental impact, without harmful chemicals, pesticides, or fertilizers. The farmers, millers, cutters & makers we use to source it are all treated & paid fairly, working in safe conditions so they can support their families & communities.  

Why we use bamboo from viscose

Using closed-loop processes for our viscose, whereby no chemicals enter the waste stream, and sourcing from sustainable raw materials, our fabric is much less harmful to the planet than conventionally produced cotton or oil-based synthetics like polyester.

The sustainability of our signature fabric

We wanted to ensure our clothing is kind to the planet & created using methods that are fair to those who make it. Therefore, we use a blend of natural fabrics that are durable with no harmful chemicals added. We also ensure to use trusted factories to make our products to ensure fair & safe working conditions. 

The environmental footprint of our signature fabric is also reduced by our use of viscose in the blend, which increases the durability of the fabric & therefore the life-time of our garments. 

While many clothing brands, especially those in the activewear industry, use additional chemicals to stabilize their bamboo-based fabrics, MORI has developed its signature fabric without additional chemicals added. 

How to care for our signature fabric

Our clothing is made to last & its environmental journey continues with you. With thoughtful care, the pieces will remain to look & feel great, so they can be passed on again & again. Bamboo is a delicate fabric that doesn’t like higher temperatures, so we recommend the following advice:

  • Wash at 86 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Do not bleach
  • When washing, keep the zips closed
  • Wash inside out
  • Wash with similar colors
  • It may shrink a little after washing, if so, gently pull back into shape whilst damp
  • Tumble dry low or line dry
  • Iron at low temperature

Bamboo yarns are long & strong which makes garments more durable. However, because we don’t use extra chemicals to stabilize the fabric to keep it as natural as possible, you may notice slight bobbling with initial useThis is due to the longer yarns which continue to stick to the garment rather than falling off. Slight pilling is normal for natural fibres, but can be reduced by ironing or using a lint remover & doesn’t impact on the durability or the softness of the clothing.
