  1. I also like the Hugger Mugger Sattva Jute mat, eco and good!

  2. the first pants is indeed really cool!

    Bamboo is the fashion material of the future and silky smooth (read that yesterday)

      it feels amazing! i have quite a few pairs of bamboo pants — they’re so luxe. let me know if you get those pants. would love to hear how you like ‘em!

      • just did a little research, bamboo for clothing isn’t eco friendly at all. So I am wondering if birch fiber and bamboo is different. However the clothes do look good

        • thanks Patrick for your comment!
          i just wanted to clarify that 4-rth is NOT using bamboo in the clothing. We are using Modal — which is made from the Birch Tree (beech wood chips) that is made 100% closed-loop process, meaning there is no chemical waste. The trees are sustainably farmed and eco-friendly in that they absorb green house gases but require no “watering” or irrigation or pesticide to grow. Please let me know if you have any other questions! (douglas@4-rth.com)
          cheers!

      douglas — thank you so much for the clarification + for your comments! i’ve edited the post to reflect this. initially i understood the “bamboo green stitch details” to mean that the thread used was made of bamboo. based on your clarification, it sounds like this is simply a color reference.

      love your stuff + keep up the good green work! :D
