At LPC everything is 100% natural!
At LPC, our favorite natural fiber is cotton. All our collections are 100% cotton. We love it for its very soft, resistant, absorbent side, but above all practical on a daily basis. Cotton is perfect for taking care of the skin of toddlers.
Cotton fiber makes it possible to create a wide variety of fabrics suitable for all seasons.
Organic cotton is cotton that is grown without pesticides, insecticides, chemical fertilizers or GMOs. It takes care of the environment, because it does not pollute, does not exhaust the soil and preserves the health of farmers.
We try as often as possible to use organic cotton but sometimes we cannot. We explain why:
In weaving mills, the creation of a fabric is done through the marriage of several threads. To create a plain fabric, plain threads are used. However, to create a fabric like that of this model, the threads are "flecked", that is to say that several colors are mixed to create a slight gradient or monochrome.
For the moment, we have not found any heather organic cotton yarns but we are actively looking for them.
Be careful however: Legally, there is no strict definition of organic cotton. These are international certification labels which act as controllers and managers of the organic designation.
Our cotton is available in several materials:
Brushed jersey, fleece, gauze or sponge. We did not choose these materials by chance!
Jersey is a fabric that has a beautiful natural elasticity thanks to the knitted stitches (stocking stitch). It allows the garment to adapt to the shapes of your child's body, which makes it very comfortable to wear.
For the fall / winter collections, we use a jersey that is brushed on one side which gives it a "peach skin" effect and a very soft touch.
The brushed fleece is one of our favorites, because it has a very soft loop, which makes the material fluffy, supple and resistant. It has all the qualities necessary to design a perfect garment: it keeps you warm, it is very comfortable, breathable and ultra trendy!
Timeless, this material is ideal for creating pretty po-ethical models. Very flexible and light, it offers a lot of comfort with its vaporous drape and its breathable weave. Its little extra: its crumpled appearance means that the fabric does not require ironing.
The sponge has an irresistible regressive side, that's why we love it. It has several assets that make us crack: its absorption capacity, its softness, which provides a real feeling of comfort and finally its thermal insulation allowing to regulate the temperature during the summer season.
Merino wool is much finer and softer than regular wool. If this material is so pleasant to wear, it is largely thanks to its fineness: The finer the fiber, the softer it is and the less it feels on the skin.
It has many qualities that we love: It does not scratch, it regulates body temperature, it neutralizes odors, it is resistant and therefore durable.
The Woolmark certificate is used to identify goods that contain virgin wool from the shearing of healthy, living animals, as opposed to wool recovered from the fleeces of slaughtered animals and recycled wool.
The Woolmark label guarantees a product made of pure new wool (100% of the composition). Woolmark's mission is to guarantee the durability, performance and quality of our merino wool.
The mission of OEKO-TEX is to certify that the fabric is not harmful to health and skin. It therefore certifies the absence of toxic substances during the production of the fabric.
An OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 fabric has been checked at each stage of processing: raw materials, yarns, dyeing. It does not contain chemicals harmful to health.
Laboratory testing currently includes approximately 100 control parameters and is based on international testing standards and other recognized test procedures.
Le GOTS label (acronym for Global Organic Textile Standard), was created in 2002 for organic fabrics.
This label indicates that the textile fibers come from organic farming.
The production of fabrics cannot use toxic or carcinogenic substances. The finished product must not contain residues of pesticides or heavy metals. Genetically modified organisms cannot be used. In addition GOTS obliges to draw up a sustainability plan which takes into account water and energy consumption as well as waste management.
Established in 2005, BCI is a cotton production program that aims to promote more responsible and sustainable production standards for cotton.
