The Sustainable SoyFibe™ T-shirt


We're continuing to blur the line between food and fashion with our second T-shirt using our SoyFibe™ fabric. We are using leftover soybean hulls from tofu production, a unique byproduct that creates a beautifully unique fabric.

We blend the soybean hulls with Lithuanian hemp which gives body and structure to the garment and we finish the recipe by infusing the fabric with Seacell™ for a soft feel. Our original SeaFibe™ t-shirt was smooth and silky. Order your SoyFibe™ t-shirt today and feel the difference between our innovative materials. Dress with purpose.

Fabric + Care
  • 60% Soya, 20% Seacell™, 20% Hemp
  • Soya fabric is made from soybean hulls, which are the by-products of soy processing and tofu manufacturing. The soybean hulls are processed in a closed loop, limiting the release of any chemicals used. Learn more about the process on our SoyFibe™ page.
  • Hemp fabric is made using fibers from the stalks of the Cannabis sativa plant. It is one of the oldest and most sustainable fibers in the world. As a quick growing and dense plant, it naturally resists pests and doesn't need pesticides to grow. It requires very little water and returns 60-70% of the nutrients it takes from the soil.
  • We use Seacell™ fiber, made by sustainably harvesting brown algae from Icelandic fjords. This is crushed into a powder and blended with Eucalyptus trees in a closed-loop process. Learn more about the process on our SeaFibe™ page.
  • For best care, wash warm (at 40°C / 100°F) and lay flat to dry

Sustainability Impact
  • The use of soy textiles are good for our planet, because it is made from fibers that are spun from the leftovers of the soy food industry.
  • Because the plant itself is easily renewable and the fiber biodegrades more quickly than oil-based products like polyester, its use has minimal environmental impact.
  • Any chemicals used during the production of soy fabric are reused in a closed loop process.

Functional Benefits
  • This eco friendly fabric has better absorption properties than cotton, which allows perspiration to evaporate better. This makes it cool and comfortable during hot weather
  • Due to its moisture management, soy textiles are antibacterial and breathable
  • It protects from the sun with its UV resistant qualities
