We pride ourselves here at Bare and Boho on ensuring our products are created with the highest quality certified fabrics. Through thorough research we seek materials that are not only safe against skin but will also guarantee longevity and reduce the environmental impact of our products because all production has an environmental cost.
Check out the fabrics we use below:
The world's leading branded recycled fibre that is created from recycled materials such as plastic bottles and post-consumer waste. The process in turning these items into fibre begins by collecting this waste and sorting them into their categories, washing them, and then dicing them into a flake like material. This flake material then gets blended and melted, and undergoes a texturing process to turn it into sustainable fibres for textile fabrics. REPREVE® is GRS (Global Recycling Standard) certified and CSC (Scientist Certification Systems) certified.
With an estimate of 500 billion plastic bottles being used every year around the world and roughly 10 tonnes of plastic being thrown into our oceans, we can feel better knowing our mindful choice in using REPREVE® Unifi, Inc. is helping to reduce our products' environmental impact.
Similar to Repreve, this fabric is created through post-consumer plastic bottles that undergo filtering, crushing and melting, and are then put through a spinning process in which the fibres are drawn out and twisted together to form a continuing thread (pretty cool huh!). Reborn is GRS certified (Global Recycling Standard) and Oeko-Tex certified.

Silicone is the perfect plastic alternative! Made with silica (sand), oxygen, carbon and hydrogen, this material as rubber is non toxic, hypoallergenic and stain-resistant. Our silicone is 100% Food Grade Silicone and FDA (Food & Drug Administration) approved, meaning it doesn't contain any nasty plastic fillers which are found in generic silicone. Although it’s not biodegradable, silicone rubber is completely sustainable (lasting decades), and once there is no more use for it with you, it can be recycled through our Recycling program! 100% BPA Free, easy to clean, dishwasher, microwave and freezer safe, and durable with extreme temperatures, these are some of many reasons why we love silicone as an alternative to plastic.
