Our Mission: To make amazing robes.
Choosing the fabrics for this Fall collection wasn’t easy. As we reviewed various suppliers from around the world, evaluated their pricing, quality, durability and longevity we have finally found fabrics worthy of our Robe Company mission - to make amazing robes.
For many of you following our story, you may be surprised with the selection of polyester minky fleece for the lining. After washing, wearing, using and sharing alternative lining fabrics, minky fleece was pretty unanimously the favorite lining fabric. With comments of “it’s like velvet” and “softer than a baby” it’s hard to disagree with its luxuriousness. For now.
Although we’re thankful for our partnership with Ambercycle to recycle our cut scraps and recycled robe linings, it will be pretty awesome to make the switch. Eventually.
Why not transition everything now? Well, our mission is to make amazing robes. And RIGHT NOW the most amazing fabrics available to make these amazing robes is the minky fleece. Someday, we look forward to this all changing and will continue testing these sustainable fibers in our robes to be ready to launch out.
But what if you want a sustainable robe? We’ve setup our products so you can order these various robes with a custom Bamboo Fleece lining instead of the minky fleece. If you select this Custom size at checkout and email us your request we’ll be happy to substitute it for you.
