Natural Fibres

Want natural fibers in your clothing?

What are sustainable natural fibers?

COTTON is harvested from the cotton plant and is best suited for our hot and humid climate as it breathes and keeps us cool and comfortable.

Garments made from cotton are also perfect for people who have sensitive skin as it is naturally HYPOALLERGENIC.

RAYON Many people don’t realize that Rayon is considered a natural fiber, as it is derived from naturally occurring cellulose in trees and plants.

The rayon material has natural anti-microbial properties and does not produce much odour if you sweat, making it perfect for our or any hot climate.

Spring isn’t the only season for natural fiber clothing! KC’s Boutique has made in Canada Putorti and Parkhurst cotton sweaters.

Most of our t-shirts including our ¾ or full sleeves are cotton or rayon blends.

Boiled wool is another popular request and wool capes are lightweight but still keep you warm.

Gilmour clothing from Vancouver offers many great casual styles of bamboo rayon and cotton pieces as well.

As usual, we always bring in many lines MADE in CANADA and BRITISH COLUMBIA.

Stay Cool & Look Chic in the Summer Heat

Stay stylish even in the hot summer sun with these tips.

  • Choose natural fibres that are breathable like cotton, bamboo, rayon and modal.
  • Wear a stylish pair of strappy sandals or peep toe shoes.
  • Pull long hair up into a stylish up-do.
  • If you need to wear a hat, look for one made of straw.
  • Long flowing and loose-fitting garments actually keep you cooler than shorts. Just look at the Saudis! With these types of garments, there is more air circulation than if the clothes are clinging to your body.
  • Wear light colours instead of dark colours; the exception is light blue since light blue shows more sweat than any other colour.
  • Avoid sugary drinks and caffeine as they dehydrate you.
  • If traveling, shopping or dining where there is air conditioning, be sure to bring a 3/4 sleeve cardigan with you.
  • Avoid tucking in your tops as it holds in the heat.
  • Don’t wear pantyhose unless your work demands it.
  • Maxi dresses are so comfortable this time of year. They are suitable for both casual or formal events and are so helpful to keep you cool. Let the men wear the pants!
