On Quality & Materials

At Joyride Supply, we prioritize the planet without compromising on our products. The materials we work with are hand-picked with purpose and intention. We consistently place a premium on affordable natural, recyclable, and organic options.  

The materials we love at Joyride Supply are both eco-friendly without sacrificing on quality

Hemp: One of the strongest natural fibers  on earth, hemp is a powerhouse and an ideal choice for apparel. We love it for its natural anti-microbial and UV resistant properties.

REPREVE  - Fiber made from Recycled Plastic BottlesREPREVE is changing the game on what it means to Reuse. Recycle. Reduce.  The brand is taking action to reduce the amount of plastic bottles that wind up in landfills each year with their innovative performance fiber derived from recycled materials, such as plastic bottles. 

Recycled cashmere: The vast majority of the world's cashmere is produced in the Mongolian grasslands. However, owing to climate change and other factors like overgrazing by cashmere goats, a substantial amount of Mongolia's grasslands have turned to desert. We believe the path forward is to use  recycled cashmere whenever possible, which can be produced from yarn made from pre and post-consumer waste. Both yarns result in a luxurious cashmere product. 


Tencel Lyocell - Fiber made from eucalyptus trees:

Lyocell, a cellulosic fabric made from tree pulp, is primarily derived from Eucalyptus trees. Even without irrigation and pesticides, eucalyptus trees grow quickly.The process of converting the pulp to fiber is better for the environment, as it’s free of toxic chemicals. The dissolving agent can also be used repeatedly, creating less water waste when compared to cotton production.. 

Lyocell’s many unique qualities include having hypo-allergenic characteristics and being 50% more absorbent than cotton.

Organic cotton: Cotton, one of the world's most abundant crops and most widely used materials, is also one of the most chemically harmful to the environment. In addition, the  use of toxic pesticides, synthetic fertilizers and processing chemicals can be detrimental to the health of field workers and cotton processors. Organic cotton, on the other hand, is grown without pesticides, uses less water resources, and is grown  on land that is free of toxins and chemicals.

Organic Linen: Linen, a textile made from the natural fiber of the flax plant uses a nominal amount of chemicals and pesticides with little to no irrigation, even in its non-organic state. Organic linen is an extremely rare textile,  as only 1 to 2 percent of flax is certified organic. At Joyride Supply we prefer organic linen compared to linen, which ensures the fabric is chemical-free

Silk: Silk is not only a gorgeous and sumptuous fabric, but it is renowned for being environmentally friendly because it is naturally biodegradable. It also has hypoallergenic properties, making it a versatile fabric choice. In addition, silkworms that produce silk fibers feed on Mulberry trees, which require minimal pesticides, fertilizers, and water. Organic silk fibers can also be produced by growing organic Mulberry trees.
